Poochie was born January 27, 1933 in Cle Elum, Washington to Henry and Alice Richard. She died peacefully in her home on January 22, 2021.
Poochie worked as a dental assistant for many years, and later married Doctor John Lievero, who pre-deceased her in 1986. She enjoyed watching sports, especially Gonzaga basketball. (Go, Zags!) She also loved to travel in Doc's private plane and they took many trips together. She was amazing with math and numbers, a voracious reader and very generous to those she held dear.
She is survived by her family: Doc's children Louise(Skip), and John (Sandy); grandchildren Margaret, Eric(Shelly), Laura(Fritz) and John(Diane), Jana(John) and Jamie; great-grandchildren Ashley(Ryan), Alison(Gabe), Logan and Juliet. Poochie was delighted to welcome great-great grandson Niko to the family in May. Our deepest gratitude goes to Marilyn Uribe for her incredible care and kindness to Poochie.
Services will be determined at a later date. Johnston & Williams Funeral Home and Crematory of Cle Elum has been entrusted with caring for the family.
