Jeffery Ivan Belfield

September 27, 1959 – August 19, 2020

Jeffery (Jeff) Ivan Belfield, longtime resident of Sequim, passed away August 19, 2020, at the age of 60. Jeff passed peacefully at Olympic Memorial Hospital with his wife, Bonnie, and children, Dawn Schafer and Jeffery (Jay) Belfield, Jr., by his side.

Jeff was born in Tacoma, on September 27, 1959, to Donald and Betty Belfield. Jeff spent his youth playing football and enjoying time with his younger sisters, Tammy and Janet Belfield. After moving to Sequim with his family in 1971, Jeff worked at Traylor’s where he established lifelong friendships and met his wife, Bonnie.

Together for 44 years, Jeff and Bonnie raised three children: Jodi Lynn Gragg (Tracy Hoesel), Dawn Michelle Schafer (Robert Harris), and Jay Belfield (Rachel Belfield and grandchildren Mira and Cameron).

In 1980, Jeff founded his Evergreen Framers business with John Laurenson. Jeff spent 40 years growing the company and establishing lasting relationships with his customers.

When not working, Jeff loved to hunt, fish, and spend time with his grandchildren; he lived a full life in his short 60 years. He was a hard worker, devoted husband, father, grandfather, and friend, who loved to tell hunting and fishing stories. The mountains and water were where he found his happiness. And anyone who knew Jeff knew that the stories he shared, as salacious as they sounded, were more than likely true.

Jeff is survived by his wife; children; grandchildren; younger sister, Tammy; and many cherished friends.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to Seattle Cancer Care Alliance in Jeff’s memory.

Ines Cole

Ines Cole died with family at her side on October 10, at the age of eighty-eight. She was born in Kimball, Nebraska, near her grandparents multi-acre homestead. Her family of eight children moved to Fruitland, Idaho when Ines was young. She graduated high school in Fruitland and married the love of her life, Claude Cole on February 15th, 1951 at the age of eighteen.

After a magical three-month honeymoon at a mountain lookout post in Idaho, Ines and Claude moved to Seattle, where they had a daughter, Brenda.

In 1958 Ines and family moved from Queen Anne, Seattle, to West Seattle where Ines happily raised her daughter and cared for her husband. Over time, she became an excellent bowler, an active supporter of Children’s Hospital, and the Troop Leader of a local Girls Scout Troop.

Ines and Claude warmly welcomed many family members to live with them. Ines’ grandmother as well as many of Ines’s siblings moved in and stayed for months. Ines’ mother lived with her family for years

In 1990 Ines and Claude retired to Sequim Washington, where they built a small farm complete with a trout pond that local children as well as Ines’s three grandchildren loved to fish in. For years Ines played in a weekly card game. She also joined a singing group who performed at nursing and retirement homes, sponsored by Shipley Center in Sequim.

Active members of Trinity United Methodist Church, Ines and Claude helped with many fundraisers and monthly kitchen duties. They also were on a board that worked for years to refurbish the Dungeness School house.

She is survived by her devoted husband, Claude, her daughter Brenda, her brothers Carl and Clyde Woods, her sisters Donna Shaver and Linda, grandchildren Justin, Jenna, Jon, and great granddaughter, Avery.

She will be remembered for her lovely flowers, her joy when with family and friends, her ready smile, warm hospitality, and down to earth common sense.

A private burial will take place on October 26th at the Tahoma National Cemetery.

Memorials may be sent to Shipley Center, 9221 E. Hammond St., PO Box 1877, Sequim, WA 98382
