Funeral arrangements have been completed for Tom McGurk. Much of the interment will occur on the West Coast, with viewing Thursday, February 11 at Greenwood Funeral Home east of Renton, from Noon to 7:00 pm. Burial will be Friday, February 12 at 10:30 pm Tahoma Veterans Cemetery.Tahoma is located on 240th just off of highway 18, east of Kent, Washington.
A celebration of life will be held at the Athol American Legion, Post 149 Saturday, February 20. The time, 1:00 pm. There will be a pot luck. Tom served in the navy as a submariner, drove the Silverwood train and hauled asphalt for Coeur d'Alene Paving. I doubt he ever had an enemy.
On a happier note, yesterday, February 7 marked the 100th birthday for Athol resident, Marion Bates. Born February 7, 1910 in Seattle, Washington, Marion is still hanging in there, crediting a healthy diet and the occasional Irish Whiskey for her longevity.
