Pauline Voishan Long time Avalon resident Pauline Voishan passed away in Sierra Vista, Ariz., on Feb. 8, in the company of her family. Voishan, who was born Jan. 3, 1917 first came to Avalon in the late 1940s vacationing at the St. Cath- erine Hotel. Her love for the Island spawned and she and her husband George purchased a vacation home on Descanso. Every summer she would bring her sons John and George to the Island with her hus- band commuting on weekends. After the passing of her husband in 1979 she became a full-time resi- dent of Avalon. She was a familiar sight at the beach with her many friends during the summer and her dear friend Agnes Bartel year- C00j00ISL00nD00 Founded in 1913 by Ernest Wiedle Executive Publisher Vince Bodiford Editor Dennis Kaiser Office Mae=ger Jennifer Leonhardi Accounting Judy Murray /klverltisi DISPLAY I CLASSIFIEDS [ OBITUARIES 101 MARILLA #6 AVALON, CA eo7o4 11L01 0-OSO0 FAX: 13101 510-2882 Postmaster: Send address changes to The Catalina Islander P.O.

Linda Garvey Avalon residents were saddened to hear of the passing of Linda Gar- vey on Jan. 26. Garvey was born July 6, 1943. Locally, not much is known of her life before her moving to Ava- lon. She was born in New York State, moved to the Santa Barbara area as a young lady and worked as a disc jockey. She later moved to Holly- wood to work in the film industry. It was there that she met and married the love of her live, John Garvey. In the winter of 1981, on the urging of a friend, she and John took a day trip to Catalina Island. They fell in love with the Island. In short order they found an apart- ment that allowed pets and moved to Avalon. Linda never left the Is- land again. She loved the Island and its people very much. Linda worked for Alan Kent Smith, and was involved with the Humane Society, but is best known for her work with the Catalina Cable Company. Her many filmed interviews of residents and visi- tor along with filmed events and City Council meetings have been shown Qn the local channel 3 for more than 20 years. At the mention of her name Islanders smile and are quick to share stories about Linda's gentle and compassionate heart. Those who spent the last six months of her life with her were privileged to be in her presenc- es; to see her smiling face as she spoke of many of her friends and acquaintances. Linda forever will be in the hearts of those she loved. There will be a graveside ser- vice at 10:30 a.m. Friday, Feb. 17. She will be laid to rest next to her husband, John.
