Celebration of Joy Huber’s life next Wed., July 7

Joy Huber, a child of Seattle, and longtime creator of community, grace, and joy in Eastlake, passed away peacefully at home, with love and family present, on June 16.  The 79th anniversary of her birth date is Wednesday, July 7, and so on that day (6-8 p.m. at Golden Gardens), family and friends and anyone else touched by Joy will celebrate her life and mourn her passing. 

You are most warmly invited by her husband, David Talbert Huber; four daughters (Kirsten, Rosemary, Ruth and Diana); and six grandchildren (from oldest, Kyle, Hayley, Braden, Benjamin, Athena and Leonardo), to attend and participate.  People from the many communities of Joy’s life are welcome to share at the open mic and to join in the program and eclectic services befitting her singular creative spirit.

Food and drink will be served at one of the park’s two picnic shelters.  Please join us for music, memories, laughs, and tears.  And please help circulate this message to others.

Images and tributes are welcome, to  In the 1993 photo above (taken at the Eastlake P-Patch), Joy poses with one of the “walking fish”, emblem of an effort (still continuing) to ensure pedestrian access to and along Eastlake’s shorelines.
