Obituary

Christina Jefferds and her precious Granddaughter, baby Sanoah Violet Huestis passed away together on March 22, 2014 in the Oso slide. Christina was born on Sept. 23, 1968 and was an Arlington resident her entire life. She graduated from Arlington High School with the class of 1987. Christina had a daughter, Natasha, and together they made a life of love and laughter. Christina pursued a career as a dental assistant but decided she liked running the office even more. Christina worked for Dr. Kelly Peterson in Marysville for 14 years until the time of her sudden death. She loved her family and is reported to be the "best Mom ever!"...

Christina met Seth Jefferds through a mutual family friend and they married in 2007. Christina and Seth loved the outdoors.

She loved you all. Christina was preceded in death by her beloved Grandma, Grace Stevens.

Hawaiian for Mist in the Mountains
Sanoah came into our lives on October 31, 2013, our precious snowbug. Her short life ended in the Oso slide along with her Tutu (grandma). Sanoah brought joy through her endless smiles. She had just learned to roll over; we were so excited. We were anticipating the days of her experiencing life and the new wonders that life brings. We imagined her playing on the beach, eating sand, asking "why" and growing up surrounded by the love of her family. May Sanoah live on in the memories of her family and the hearts of all of you. Thankfully, she is not alone but with her Tutu. Together they will remain a Mist in the Mountains.
She is survived by her Mother, Natasha Huestis, Grandpa, Seth Jefferds, Grandpa, Doug Massingale, Aunt Breanne Jefferds, Uncle Shamus Massingale, God-Mother Ashley Schuette, Great-Grandparents; Joann (William) Cassingham, Peter (Liga) Jefferds, Joe & Linda Huestis and numerous great aunts, uncles and cousins with special regards to Aunt Julie Petersen.
