Barbara Ann Vander Yacht, age 87, of Blaine, passed away in Bellingham on March 23, 2019. She was born February 4, 1932, to Clarence and Sarah (Dwire) Bunch of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
A devoted, loving wife, Barbara married Del Vander Yacht of Blaine in 1985. She always enjoyed RV trips and fishing trips with Del, traveling to Alaska, Yellowstone Park, the Oregon coast, and northern B.C. She was a dedicated sports fan, loyally watching the Huskies, Zags, Mariners, and Seahawks games. She also loved to knit and crochet, and she enjoyed casino visits too.
Barbara is survived by her husband Del Vander Yacht; daughter Sheryl Blystone, son Craig Cantlay, and stepdaughters Lynn Pinkey and Joan Vander Yacht; sister-in-law Rosalee MacDonald, and brothers-in-law Jeff Vander Yacht and Tom Vander Yacht. She was a kind and selfless woman, and she will be dearly missed.
