LAWYER- SCOUTER- HISTORIAN- COMMUNITY- BUILDER

George Martin was born in Mohler, Idaho, on June 18 1906, to George S. and Janet Dove Martin. They moved to Mabton, Washington in 1908, where George graduated from Mabton High School with honors. He received two degrees from the University of Washington - Electrical Engineering in 1928 and Juris Doctor (Law) 1939.
He married Elizabeth Harrington Stafford on June 14, 1930, and they have four children -- Jean Menning, Jane Johnson, George and Jonathan.
George has practiced law in Yakima from 1940. He is admitted to most Federal Courts. He was the President of the Yakima County Bar in 1966; and he worked with Justice Douglas to bring the U.S. Supreme Court materials of Justice Douglas to the Yakima Valley Museum.
He has been in scouting for over 70 years as an Eagle Scout, Scoutmaster, Council President and member of the Fort Simcoe Council. He has served on the Regional Executive Boards, the National Council. He has been awarded the Silver Beaver and the Silver Antelope. He has served on the staff of two international Jamborees.
George has been a life-long student and researcher of the history of Yakima Valley and Central Washington and has written and published many newspaper articles and has lectured in many schools and to many organizations.
As an historian he was on the Board of the Diamond and Centennial celebrations of Yakima City and co-authored books for both. During 1986-1990 he has served as the Yakima County Chairman of the Washington State Centennial Celebration.
As a community builder he has been a dreamer and has then worked to make those dreams come true, with the help and cooperation of many other dreamers and doers. He led the drive to create the Rural Yakima County Library District; and the Yakima County Regional Library, where he served as Trustee and President for 22 years. He also helped organize several other library groups. The Yakima Valley Museum was started by the Daughters of the Pioneers who asked for his help - he has been with the museum since 1944 and has served as President and in many other capacities.

oObit21 February 1994  On 21 February 1994 at Yakima, Washington, George's obituary read: Today, the editor, George M. Martin, passed away. While we are all in a state of shock, even several days later, we are also relieved that he went quickly and with no pain. As his doctors commented, he was a gentleman to the end. The Yakima Valley has truly lost a great man, and his passing does indeed mark the end of an era.
George Jr. and Jonathan arrived, and began the tasks of arranging the funeral -- greatly aided by arrangements that George M. had made many years ago. George and Betty's help, Rosie and Kathleen, were magnificent and have been throughout the ordeal.
Jane arrived in the afternoon and made the many difficult calls to family and friends.
Tuesday, February 22: In the morning George helped around the house while Jonathan took care of judging duties in Union Gap. In the afternoon, Jean and Ed flew in, and immediately pitched in to help Betty in every way and to help George Jr. and Jonathan finalize the arrangements.
Betty has been doing extremely well, and has done so much for everyone in the face of her own sorrow. When we weren't busy, there were many tales swapped of our lives with Gramps. Ina and Seth spent a large part of the day, and the little guy helped everyone remember life.
Wednesday, February 23: Kurt and Lis arrived from Montana and Texas. Jonathan, Ina, Dante, Napoleon and Seth also were here. After a family get together the Rimrock Martins headed home, and the rest stayed and enjoyed many family tales and legends. The day had been clear and warm, but by late evening, it was snowing hard. Over 15" had fallen at Rimrock, and all of the passes were closed off and on. George, Jr. decided to remain in Yakima, and have Vic and Wendy fly over. All made it home safely.
Thursday, February 24: The morning began at Rimrock House with a large limb and tree crown crashing down where the cars are usually parked. For whatever reason, Jonathan had decided to move the new van out from under the tree. Whew!
Today was the day of George's funeral, held at the First Presbyterian Church. Most of the morning and early afternoon were spent getting ready, and drawing together.
We went to church about two in the afternoon, during a snowstorm, of course, (I can't help but wonder if Gramps didn't order it up ..) The church was packed with family and George's many friends from all over the West. The service was very nice, and was done as he wished it: the music he selected, and the actual service followed by a Masonic service of the Rose Croix. One remark of the minister sticks in my mind: he commented that it might be easier to list the activities that George was not involved with. As requested, the service was closed casket, but there were many lovely flowers and arrangements. After the funeral, there was a nice reception for all of the guests and family. George would have loved the crowd. That evening, George Jr, Vic and Wendy left for Bellevue and then flew to San Francisco for Wendy's birthday.
Friday, February 25: Today was supposed to be the day for everyone to lighten up and relax. It didn't happen. In the afternoon, Grammie, Jonathan, Jean and Jane spent much time going through a small part of Gramp's memorabilia and clothing, and generally sharing memories. The strength of this woman is simply magnificent!
Saturday, February 26: Today we laid the ashes of this man for all seasons to rest, in a short family service. Jonathan asked all who wished to make short speeches, and then read Chapter XII, verses 1 through 7 of the Book of Ecclesiastes, afterwards, Taps was sounded.3 
Death*21 February 1994 He died on 21 February 1994 at Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital, Yakima, Washington, at age 87.4,5 
oObit23 February 1994  On 23 February 1994 at Yakima Herald Republic, Yakima, Washington, George's obituary read: George M. Martin, a longtime Yakima attorney whose numerous civic pursuits and dedication to the community spanned more than half a century, did Monday at Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital, He was 87.
"He was a giant of a lawyer and giant of a person who always looked for how he could help the community," said Yakima County District Court Judge Randall Marquis, who worked alongside Martin for 23 years in private practice. "He was a man who would reach out and help the little guy, even when he didn't have the money to pay his fees. He was part of a dying breed."
Martin's accomplishments included decades of service to the Boy Scouts, the Salvation Army, Camp Fire Girls and the American Legion. A noted historian, he was a driving force behind the formation of the Yakima Valley Museum, The fort Simcoe Restoration Society, and the Yakima Valley Regional Library.
Among his most notable achievements, however came in 1950 when he and a handful of others spearheaded creation of Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital. For Martin it was a pursuit born out of frustration and despair of watching helplessly as a friend's daughter died of polio in the 1940's. He served as the hospital's attorney and secretary of its board of directors for more than three decades.
In recognition of this lifetime of contributions, the Yakima Valley Herald-Republic named him person of the year in 1985. At that time he found it difficult talking about himself but described his philosophy of giving to the community this way: "You see something that seems to be a need ... and you become involved. . . . But while others around him were chasing money, Martin pursued the good of the Yakima area.
"He always did his level best for the community," Jonathan M. Martin, his son and former law partner who now serves as Union Gap Municipal Court Judge.
Born June 18 1906, at Mohler, Idaho, Martin and his parents moved to Mabton two years later. Martin was the valedictorian of the 1924 graduating class at Mabton High School. He graduated from the University of Washington four years later with a degree in electrical engineering.
In 1930, he married Elizabeth Harrington Stafford. Later, Martin returned to the University of Washington, graduating with a law degree in 1939.
The legal profession had a long history within Martin's family. His great-grandfather, Heinrich Theodor Martin, was a judge in Germany, and his father George S. Martin, was a lawyer in Oregon.
Martin and his wife left Seattle in 1940 and returned to Yakima, where he opened a law practice and eventually became president of the Yakima County Bar Association. Martin began immersing himself in community activism almost immediately, serving on the governing boards of more than a dozen various organizations over the years.
EDITORIAL
YAKIMA HERALD-REPUBLIC
FEBRUARY 23, 1993

GEORGE M. MARTIN LEAVES LASTING LEGACY Yakima has lost a giant of a community supporter with the passing Monday of George M. Martin, longtime local Attorney.
While a noted lawyer from a family of lawyers, it was in community service that Martin made a tremendous impact and which provides a lasting legacy.
Martin provided decades of service to the Boy Scouts, the Salvation Army, Camp Fire and the American Legion. A noted historian, he was a driving force behind the formation of the Yakima Valley Museum, the Fort Simcoe Restoration Society and the Yakima Valley Regional Library.
He and a handful of others spearheaded creation of Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital, the modern health-care complex in which he died. For Martin it was a pursuit born out of frustration and despair watching helplessly as a friend's daughter died of polio in the 1940's. He served as the Hospital's attorney and secretary of its board of directors for more than three decades.
We at the Yakima Herald-Republic are pleased to have been able to honor this tireless community activist who gave so much of himself with our Person of the Year award in 1985 when he was chairman of the Yakima County Centennial celebration. Certainly no one was more deserving.
Yakima will long remember, and note, the contributions of George M. Martin, a gentleman and a scholar, a community servant and a soaring spirit. Even the most common polite inquiry, "How are you George?" to Martin always evoked a terse, upbeat response, unique in the Yakima language and historical perspective so dear to Martin.
George was simply always and without exception skookum.
by David Wasson of the Herald-Republic. 
oObit28 February 1994  On 28 February 1994 at Yakima, Washington, George's obituary read: Southwest Rotary's beloved George M. Martin went to his eternal rest Monday, February 21, 1994.
George, if anyone, truly exemplified "Mr. Rotary" by his philosophy of life. He gave of himself, often without thought of or accepting remuneration. the Boy Scouts, Salvation Army, Camp Fire Girls, and American Legion, all have felt his indelible influence. Those organizations not being enough, George also was a driving force behind the formation of the Yakima Valley Museum, Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital, and the Yakima Valley Regional Library.
Very fittingly, George was given the honor of Person of the Year in 1985 by the Yakima Herald-Republic. In a Rotary type comment at that time, George said "You see something that seems to be a need ... and you become involved."
Our departed Rotarian was born June 18, 1906, at Mohler, Idaho. His public schooling was received in Mabton where he was valedictorian of his graduation class. He earned two degrees at the University of Washington, the latter a law degree.
George is survived by his beloved wife Elizabeth (Harrington Stafford) to whom he was wed in 1930 -- 64 years ago. Other survivors include sons George S. of Bellevue and Jonathan H. of Rimrock; daughters Jane Martin Johnson of Yakima and Jean Martin Menning of Estes Park, Colorado; and a sister Esther Martin Ness of Poulsbo. Seven grandchildren also survive.
George will be missed by Southwest Rotary. All Southwest Rotarians extend their heartfelt sympathy to the family of George M. Martin, a truly great man.6

Info* Information on her came from from, George Maybee Martin to early Maybee Society records. 
Misc Esther Eileen Martin is Maybee Society Member #5. 
Married Name Her married name was Ness. 
Birth*9 April 1902 She was born on 9 April 1902 at Mohler, Lewis County, Idaho.1,2 
Marriage* She married Leif Ness
(Witness) Anecdote Janet created hand quilted quilts, many of which she passed down to her children. Her daughter, Esther Ness, exhibited one called "Ocean Waves" at "Women And Their Quilts, A Washington State Centennial Tribute" which was held Jan 14, 1989 at the Bellevue Art Museum.3 
(Witness) oObitDecember 1992 Esther Eileen Martin was mentioned in the obituary of Leif Ness in December 1992 at Everett, Washington; Esther E. Ness #5, brother-in -law to our President, George Maybee Martin and grandfather to Elizabeth Sevy, #51. sent this, " Leif Ness was born October 4, 1901, in Wapaton, North Dakota and almost at once his childhood adventures started. At age one, the family moved to Petersburg, Territory of Alaska. After his Mother's death in 1906, they returned to the States. Leif was taken into the home of Oscar Rindal at Miller Bay for a year. He had his first ice cream cone in Poulsbo, Washington, a tiny village in those days.
At his father's remarriage, he moved to Seattle where he graduated from the 8th grade. His father, Per, bought a farm at Edgecomb, Washington where Leif spent his high school years, graduating from Arlington High School.
The next ten years were an adventurous kaleidoscope. He was a high rigger in the virgin forests of Washington; worked in the apple orchards in Eastern Washington; went fishing on our coastal waters; had his ship go to the bottom during a storm in Grays Harbor; raised blue foxes for a year on an island in Alaska and bought and operated a service station in Port Orchard.
At this time Leif met and married Esther Eileen Martin. They had hardly settled in their first home when they sold the station.
In 1932 Leif and Bjarne, his brother, bought the old feed store in Poulsbo and spent the next 30 years -- during the great depression -- building it up to a big business and raising a family of two daughters, Janet Eileen and Sonya Karen.
Leif was active in the growth of the little town, serving seven years on the City Council, many years on the Port Commission, taught first aid classes all during World War II, and 30 years with his real love -- the Poulsbo Volunteer Fire Department. When he retired, he was assistant Fire Chief. In between, he built about 10 homes in Poulsbo; spent several seasons fishing in Alaskan waters; built a beautiful fishing boat, The High C. When they closed the feed store and retired in 1960, we bought a motor home and started spending the next 20 winters in travel. We covered over 150,000 miles, from the Arctic Circle to Guatemala and from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Leif was a fantastic traveling companion, and always ready to explore a strange road or to stop and smell the flowers. We also flew to distant places: Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Hawaii.
At age 85 we found the time had come to give the motor home #2 to the kids and turn our attention to enjoying our grandchildren. Leif enjoyed a close companionship with many of you. I'm sure you all join us in wishing him well in this, his last great adventure.

Anecdote1992 Now well on the mend, Alice McDowell, #6 caught us up on some of her activities during the last two years. "In the summer of 1992, I took some enjoyable trips. First, my sister Marian (McDonald, #13) came from Iowa and we went north across Puget Sound to visit beautiful Victoria, B.C, (Canada) and the Butchart Gardens. Then I spent a week in Warsaw, Indiana, visiting friends and places I had not seen since I moved to Oregon five years before. In September, Marian and I went on a three week tour of eleven countries in Europe -- an extremely interesting but very strenuous trip.In October, I flew to Prescott, Arizona, for a two week visit with Beth, Paul and Dena. While there I suffered a severe heart attack and ended up recuperating there for a period of five months ... I was becoming quite discouraged with my slow progress and lack of energy but I was recently started in a new treatment program which seems very successful, makes me feel much improved and has restored my normal energy.
My brother Colonel Rolland George died in June. ... That leaves us three daughters -- Margaret, 90 years old in Iowa, Marian, 79, in Iowa and me at 82, all of us widows.
I am keeping busy with my church, club, friends' activities and several hobbies. I am looking forward to a healthy and useful 1994. ..."1

Vivien Cleman

F, #7, b. 28 November 1912, d. 1 December 2005
Info* Information on her came from Alice McDowell, #6; Marian McDonald, #13; Paul and Vivien Turneaure #7 to early Maybee Society records. 
Misc Vivien Cleman is Maybee Society Member #7. 
Married Name Her married name was Turneaure. 
Birth*28 November 1912 She was born on 28 November 1912 at Wenas Valley, Washington.1 
Marriage*7 September 1935 She married Paul Miltimore Turneaure, son of Clifton Bradley Turneaure and Edith L. Miltmore, on 7 September 1935 at Yakima, Yakima County, Washington. 
Death*1 December 2005 Vivien Cleman died on 1 December 2005 at Yakima, Yakima County, Washington, at age 93.2 
oObit*9 December 2005  On 9 December 2005 at Yakima, Washington, Vivien's obituary read: Vivien Cleman Turneaure passed away on December 1, 2005. Vivien was born on the family dairy farm in the Wenas Valley, WA, on Thanksgiving Day, November 28, 1912 to Edward (Ted) Cleman and Frances Colvin Watt. Her pioneer roots were very dear to her and, as the family historian, she instilled that pride in her children. Her great-grandfather Charles Agustin Clemen (for whom Mt Cleman was named) came to the Washington Territory in 1865 and established the first sheep ranch in the Yakima Valley. Vivien attended the one-room Cleman School for several years before the family moved to Yakima. She attended Washington Jr. High but transferred to Franklin Jr. High the first year it opened. She graduated from Yakima High in 1930.
Vivien was married to Paul M. Turneaure in the Cleman home on September 7, 1935. They had been married 61 years at the time of Paul's death in 1997. Her family was very important to her. In later years when she could no longer travel, the telephone was her constant link to her children and grandchildren. Vivien is survived by her three children: Elizabeth (Bernard) Shoemaker, Harlingen, TX, John (Brigitte) Turneaure, Palo Alto, CA, and Dorothy Morales, Yakima; her six beloved grandchildren: Evelyn McCoard, David Shoemaker, Lori Peterman, Tanya Turneaure, Stefan Turneaure, Monserrat Morales; 16 great-grandchildren; and her sisters, Dorothy Hall and Jen Cox, both of Yakima.
Vivien's grandmother Mary Elizabeth Kershaw Cleman taught her to knit at the young age of 6, which began her life-long love of the fiber arts. She was the knitting instructor at the Bon Marche for 13 years. She learned to weave in her late 40's and fulfilled a dream of learning to spin in her early 70's. Working with the fiber from the gathering of the wool to completion of a garment gave her great joy. Family members were often the recipients of these loving creations. She taught all her children to knit, and her daughters carry on the enthusiasm Vivien had for this art form.1

Death*23 December 1993 Cora Rosetta Starr died on 23 December 1993 at Grapeview, Mason County, Washington, at age 90.5,6 
oObit*December 1993  In December 1993 Cora's obituary read: Cora Starr Van Cruyningen, #21. one of our earliest supporters, died in December of 1993. She was always so gracious and willing to share. Cora was the last daughter of Royal Oscar Starr and Hattie Belle Maybee. On her mother's side, she descended from David Maybee 1761/62 of Canajoharie, New York. Her father descended from Dr. Comfort Starr of Ashford, Kent, England, who emigrated to Boston, Massachusetts in 1635.
Cora comes from a family of eight children. Her parents homesteaded in Nebraska and built a cattle spread. Royal "Oscar " Starr vowed that each of his children would have a high school education , but Eli, the nearest town was 40 miles away. Their oldest daughter was attending school in Mt. Vernon, Washington and living with her grandparents William Edgar and Rachel Mapes Maybee. The thoughts of a warmer climate, good schools and available work induced Mr. Starr to sell his homestead and move the family to Washington State.
The Starrs packed all of their belongings, the seven children, enough food for the trip, and boarded the train for the West coast in 1907.
Cora finished high school and then graduated from Bellingham Normal with credentials in upper elementary grades. She had been dating Paul Van Cruyningen, a student a Bellingham, but since he had one more year to graduation, she took a job teaching at Skagit River in a one-room school with all eight grades and 27 students.
"I was 21 at the time and some of the eighth graders were bigger than I. They were good kids though, and I had very few discipline problems." She laughed as she remembered one incident which taught her not to keep kids after school. "The Raleigh man had stayed overnight with one of the families and a big boy had filched a bottle of vanilla from his pack." After the first recess Miss Starr saw some of the big boys slip back into their seats with sheepish grins on their faces. Pretty soon the smell of vanilla, with a touch of alcohol, filled the room. Teacher informed the children that the boys in the eighth grade would stay after school. "The little children ran home, wide-eyed with the story that heir brothers were in trouble with the teacher. AS I talked with the culprits I glanced out the window and saw each of their fathers standing in the school yard to confront the boys. Well, that was the last time I kept anyone after school. I felt the punishment was worse than the crime."
She taught two years and then in 1927 she and Paul were married. They moved to Seattle where Mr. Van Cruyningen taught. At that time a married woman could not teach, especially if her husband was a teacher.
This is when Cora began volunteer work which she continued for the remainder of her life. Paul became a principal and she soon found herself leading many fund drives for the schools. "Finally I told Paul I had to go to work in self defense," Cora said. She became a receptionist at the Washington University Woman's Club and stayed there for 25 years filling many positions. One of her favorite projects was the Children's Orthopedic Guild and much of the above information was gleaned from an article in a local newspaper, written about her and her generous service.
Her niece, Wanda Pearcy, #16, writes, "Cora was born July 14, 1903 and passed away December 25, 1993. She was a wonderful lady. She had a good life. Her husband, Paul passed away in 1988, but up until that time they did a lot of traveling. They did not have children but were blessed with lots of nieces and nephews. She moved back to Mt. Vernon in 1990 it was great to be able to spend more time with her."7 
Burial* She and Paul John Van Cruyningen were buried at Woodlawn Cemetery, Ferndale, Whatcom County, Washington.
