2 people who worked for betterment of City

Feb 05, 2014

Editor:

Betty Mueller and Fred Bell passed away recently. I knew Betty for several years, keeping track always of what was going on in our City, for the betterment of the City, having things done right, until the last two years.

Fred Bell, when president and a member of the Edmonds Historical Society, asked the Save Our Log Cabin Committee, “What is there that I can do to help?”

In 1998, the City Council had voted no funds to restore the Ganahl-Hanley log cabin, which had been moved to its present site in 1975.

(Ganahl had it built to be used as a guest house, and later sold it to the Hanley family.)

After the City declined to provide funds for restoration, the independent Log Cabin Committee raised $103,000. Fred volunteered several hours on the project, along with several other community service projects.

A celebration of Fred’s life will take place from 3-6 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 9, at the Edmonds Conference Center.
