Mary Clare was born on September 3, 1918 and passed away in Seattle WA September 18, 2017.  Mary was born in Sprague WA to Catherine (Tracy) McGough and James Leo McGough.  She attended school in both Sprague and Spokane WA, receiving her Bachelor of Arts in Education from Holy Names Academy.  Mary taught school for a few years in eastern Washington and then went to work for Rexall Drug. Mary met Milo Misek in Pasco, WA and they were married on August 19, 1949 in Fremont, NE.  They moved back to Pasco and then to Seattle and for many years Mary owned The White Shop on First Hill in Seattle which specialized in clothing for Drs. and nurses. After Milo’s death in 1974, Mary joined the Seattle Widow and Widowers Club where she found many enduring friendships and fun times. She loved reading a good book, playing pinochle and board games and was always willing to teach someone how to play.

Mary was dedicated to her family and nothing made her happier than to be surrounded by friends and family.
