LaTrelle Maves

A relative I wish I could have met.
LaTrelle Maves

LaTrelle Maves, nee Casey, was born in Sherman, Texas on Sept. 7, 1920 and passed away on Jan. 2, 2011 in Seattle, a city she called home for the last 62 years. She was a resident of Magnolia and lived in Queen Anne in her latter years.

Prior to marriage, Ms. Maves was a commercial actress for the Alexander Film Co. in Colorado Springs, Colo., and from there went on to become a model with New York's famed Conover Agency. For a time, during World War II, she worked in a munitions factory for the war effort before settling in Seattle. 

As a young wife and mother, she was president of the Magnolia-Briarcliff Preschool Association in 1951 and 1952 and was a leading member of Seattle's Park Weed Willis Orthopedic Guild.

During her retirement, Ms. Maves volunteered weekly at Swedish-Ballard Hospital for four years.

She is the widow of Dr. Robert A. Maves and is survived by three children, Karen Klein, Martha Anne Klein and Jack Klein, Jr. by former spouse, Dr. Jack Klein, now deceased.

Ms. Maves is also survived by two grandsons, Kyle Klein and Casey Klein.

Memorial services will be private.

She will be missed always and forever loved.
