Long time Aberdeen resident Linda Marie (Bache) Rattie, 80, passed away peacefully in her sleep, July 14, 2019, at her residence in Centralia, Washington.

Linda was a native of Aberdeen, attended Aberdeen schools, and graduated from JM Weatherwax “Aberdeen” High School in 1957. 

Linda, and her husband Pete moved to Summit Lake, selling their Aberdeen home and making “The Lake” their permanent residence in 1988 in order to be closer to her children. 

Linda initially worked in retail sales, and as an office assistant for a local attorney until finding her place in the insurance industry. Linda spent the next 37 years of her career in insurance working for Thompson Insurance Agency in Aberdeen, which later became Fournier Insurance. Nearing the end of her career she moved to the Montesano branch, where she continued until her retirement in 1997.

It was at that time Linda found her next passion as “Yaya”; she began caring for the grandchildren of her and Pete’s lifelong friends, Mick and Phyllis Rajcich. Sidney, Alexia “Lexie”, and Preston brought such joy to Yaya, as they affectionately called her. She continued in that role for the next 13 years until she and Pete moved to Olympia due to health reasons.

Linda loved cooking, sewing, and had numerous crafting skills and taught her daughter and her grandchildren to love those things as well. But her warm hospitality was what she prided herself on, and her favorite thing of all was entertaining family and friends. Whether it was the annual Christmas party, hosting Grid Guessers, a family reunion, or just cooking for and entertaining family and friends, she was “the Hostess with the Mostess”. 

Linda loved her family and friends, although the Huskies, Seahawks, Mariners, and her beloved Sonics were not far behind. 

Linda was preceded in death by her husband Pete, and is survived by her daughter Terri (Bader) and husband Dave, her son Dennis and wife Liz, four grandchildren, Lindsey (Bates) and husband Alex, Molly (Fry) and husband Tyler, Emma and Ethan Rattie, and five great-granddaughters. She also leaves behind her only remaining sibling, Dr. Frederic John Bache and nieces and nephews. 

She was loved by many and will be missed by all.
