Mayhew

KayLynn (Edgren) Mayhew was born April 23, 1961 in Colfax, Wash. to Roger and June Edgren. She passed away Nov. 24, 2018 at her home in Greenbank on Whidbey Island to her heavenly eternal home. She was 57 years old. Memorial services will be held at Hillside Evangelical Free Church in Greenbank on Saturday, Dec. 15 at 3 p.m.

KayLynn spent her childhood in Colfax, grew up on Prune Orchard Road and worked at the Elk Drug Store, her family’s pharmacy. She graduated from Colfax High School in 1979. KayLynn continued her education at Washington State University, graduating with a degree in pharmacy. She met her sweetheart Bill Mayhew during her college years at WSU, and they married soon after she graduated in 1984. They were married 34 happy years.

KayLynn and Bill lived and worked in West Seattle for 32 years. They bought property on Whidbey Island and spent 10 years building their retirement home and gardens. One of KayLynn’s many joys was her involvement in the design and building of their home on Whidbey Island. Upon their retirement in 2015, they moved to the island full-time.

KayLynn was a lady with many talents. She enjoyed gardening, cooking, sewing, quilting, photography, reading, camping and hiking. She cherished her many adventures with Bill and times spent with her family, friends and church community. She was always willing to help with weddings, parties and church events with her many creative talents. KayLynn was a kind, gracious, patient, gentle and loving person to all that knew her.
