Longtime Burien resident Carol Selander has passed away
From an email received Thursday, June 26 from Steve Browning:
As her next door neighbor, I wanted to let your readers know that longtime Burien resident, Carol Selander, passed away quietly earlier today from the effects of a stroke she suffered last week. She had just been returned home from a local facility so that her last moments could be in familiar surroundings, surrounded by her family who had flown in from all over the country, coincidentally, this past week to help celebrate one of her children’s birthdays.
Carol and her late husband Ken, lived in the same home in the Seahurst/Three Tree Point area for over 60 years. They were heavily involved with a variety of business, civic, cultural and philanthropic activities and were important leaders in many of the city’s most significant events and developments during that period.
Ken passed away in 2007 (http://bonneywatson.com/
Mrs. Selander is survived by her five children, all of whom were raised in the home in which she died.
Burien has lost a beloved, respected and irreplaceable advocate and friend.
