Vanita Kay Reed
A celebration of her life will be held at a future date.
Vanita Kay Reed, age 78, passed away on January 3, 2024.
She was born, and raised in Bellingham, WA, where she married her childhood sweetheart, Keith Reed. Vanita worked as a cake decorator with the Fair Market until her retirement.
Vanita is survived by her 4 children and their spouses: Connie and Richard Moreau, Clint and Karen Reed, Heidi and Donald Forbes, and Becky Reed. She is predeceased by her husband, Keith, and her parents, Lyle and Rena Clapper, and brothers, Wayne and Lyle Jr. Clapper, and sister, Sherry Partridge.
Vanita’s family also included loving grandchildren, great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
Vanita enjoyed a full life tending to her home and spending time with family and friends. She enjoyed many creative pursuits including painting, cake decorating, sewing, crocheting, and crafts, many of which she also sold in her cottage business. She made yet another friend every time she met someone, and she was always giving to others. Her heart was full of kindness, and children immediately felt love, safety and security with her.
