Sad news befalls Kirkland as Shirley Day, pillar of our community, passes away

Sad news befalls Kirkland as word of the passing of long-time Kirkland community supporter and owner of The Crab Cracker restaurant (452 Central Way), Shirley Day. Shirley passed away on Tuesday at Evergreen Hospice Center with family members at her side. Shirley was known throughout town as a generous community supporter, always making her restaurant a welcome home to service clubs, the Chamber of Commerce, local events and patrons alike.

The family will hold a memorial service in Kirkland in the New Year at a date yet to be determined.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Shirley and her family.
