Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Ellen Faker Allmendinger Sumner


After high school I spent some time in college, at CWU in Ellensburg. Eventually I trained to be a cashier and worked while attending TCC. Soon the time came to start a family. I married Steve Allmendinger from Class of '73 and we had a son, Tom. Later I married Mike Sumner, also from '73 and we had 2 sons, Matt & Eric and our daughter, Paula.

As the kids grew I found myself immersed in their activities. Scouting with the boys, involved with PTA, and eventually serving as Mother Advisor for Paula's Rainbow Girls assembly at the Puyallup Masonic Center near their elementary school, Maplewood. Tom participated in wrestling and cross country. Matt was in orchestra, drama and served a year as Viking Mascot. Eric loved choir and also played the tuba through his school years. We all stayed involved in Scouting and Paula joined Girl Scouts, along with Orchestra, cross country, school clubs and Rainbow Girls.

Activities afforded the kids opportunities to travel. We met Bill when he chaperoned Tom and the troop on a high adventure camping trip in Philmont New Mexico. Tom joined the Army and 'saw the world'. Matt was able to attend a Scouting Jamboree in Tennessee & visit Dollywood. Orchestra, Choir & Band provided trips to Disneyland and Eric sang in New York City several times. Once at Strawberry Fields and once at the Twin Towers Memorial site. Paula served as a Grand Officer and we took several trips to Massachusetts, Nebraska and Disney World.

During the growing years I was able to find time to finish my degree at Pierce College. My partner Bill Cooper, a Sumner Spartan, became a Mason and served as Paula's Rainbow Dad. Eventually our masonic affiliation expanded and Bill, Paula and I currently belong to several organizations within the Masonic community.

I'm still working. Throughout my life I have worked in printing, retail, several positions through the years at The Fair. My favorite job was working in a wholesale nursery business. I worked for the US Bureau of Census three separate decennial population counts and also spent some years conducting several of the private surveys the Bureau collects. I've been at Pierce County Elections for nearly 25 years. With Allied Universal, providing security for Seahawks, Sounders, Mariners & Huskies along with concerts throughout the region for 10 years. Unfortunately, no pensions offered in gig jobs and not even Social Security offered in under-the-table gigs.

So I returned to school at Bates Technical College and studied Facilities Maintenance. That degree eventually led to a job with Puyallup School District. I earned my CDL and drove school bus for many years. I recently drove shuttle for EQC but didn't care for graveyard hours in that area. Several drive-bys and other police activity during my shifts led to my departure.

Currently I drive shuttle bus for Puyallup Activity (the Senior's mostly) Center. Although I haven't quite acknowledged being a Senior myself, I do find I have a lot in common with my passengers, and they find me relatable. So, I'll keep working the 'gig' jobs for now. Bill's not old enough for retirement for several more years so, no hurry.

Eventually we hope to spend time in some of these time-shares we've wasted our $$ on. We currently attend Sakura Con, each Easter weekend, where son Tom is the Chairman of the convention. In 2023 it was the inaugural event in the newly built Seattle Convention Center expansion and also encompassed the original building. Our Seattle time-share is directly across the street so we definitely got our money's worth that week.

Well, all in all I'm pretty satisfied with my life. I find Joy in the little things. I Love my kids & my pets and am enjoying the journey.
