Arlyn “Lynn” Mariotto
died on June 1, 2010 in Bellingham. She was 86 years old, born in Everett, Washington to Harvey & Helen Bancroft on March 13, 1924. Her only sibling; brother Keith Bancroft preceded her in death on March 17, 2010. He was a constant source of support and kindness to her throughout her life.
Lynn was a successful cosmetologist, owning her own business and doing retail cosmetics for most of her career. Starting in Bellingham with Fashion Two-Twenty she later moved her company to British Columbia, where she remained until retirement. She enjoyed many years living near her brother Keith at Carlyon Beach, Washington. She returned to Bellingham in 1999 to reconnect with old friends and be closer to family. Lynn loved gardening, social occasions, theater, being out on the water, holidays, music, cooking and travel. Living independently was important to her and she was blessed to maintain that until the end of her life.
Lynn is survived by two daughters and one grandchild, Cheryl Mariotto of Marina Del Rey, California, Randi (Mariotto) & Ken Hueston of Sandy Point, Washington, and Tiffany (Williamson) & Michael Sharrar of Silverton, Oregon.
At her request no public service will be held. The family will have a private gathering this summer to celebrate the lives of both Lynn & Keith. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Catholic Community Services or a charity of your choice.
