ah... I sent to quickly:

Alison Clinton Gordon, born 24 Nov 1886, died 16 Jun 1965 in Port Angeles, WA. She was the daughter of John W. Gordon and Annie Lyon.

She was married to Walter Pattison. No further data on Walter

She was mother to:

Alice Pattison, born 1906 died 14 Feb 1998. She was married to Basil V. Decker 1900-1967. Son Basil A. Decker, 1925- 27 July 2006. Died in Port Angeles. Married Arlene Swegle, had daughter Jackie Von Decker, died 1952
--I find Basil A. Decker, born 1930 had lived at 3201 Mahogany Street, Port Angeles, WA 98362.

Marion married Guy Clark, children Leo and two others.

Francis W (Frank) Pattison, born 17 May 1910, died 3 Sep 2001, married Hazel, son Michael Pattison

Here is Basil's obituary:
BASIL ANDY DECKER

June 8, 1925-July 26, 2006

Andy closed out his final riding chapter July 26, 2006.
Born to Basil and Alice Decker on June 8, 1925, in Port Angeles, Washington.
After attending schools in Port Angeles, Andy enlisted in the Navy.
Home from the Navy in 1946, Andy bought his first Harley-Davidson, a WR750 Flat Tracker.
The passion was now ignited, and that love of motorcycles that had been handed down from his dad was alive.
Andy went on to own 16 other makes and models of motorcycles in his short 81 years of living, including but not limited to his 1936 Harley-Davidson VLH, and the 1941 Knucklehead, which he had purchased almost a year ago.
Andy"s passion and love for motorcycles was featured in the antique motorcycle magazine for the "West Coast Cut Downs," where they featured his 1928 JDH.
Andy was also in three movies, including "The Wild Ones" with Marlon Brando.
Andy had such fun flat tracking at the old Civic Field, Port Townsend, Long Beach, Castle Rock and, yes, out on Crescent Beach.
Get on the bike, turn the throttle and hold on tight, and he knew he was alive.
Married and divorced twice, Andy then met and fell in love with his soul mate, the love of his life, Alice Cloquet.
What a couple they were! Her cinnamon rolls and Andy's Harleys were a perfect fit.
All were blessed to call him "Friend"; all were honored when he called you "Friend."
When you think of Andy as we all often do, we know that his handshake was his word, and his word was his bond. A man of love, honor and loyalty stands tall, and Andy was as tall as they come.
Andy was preceded in death by his parents, Basil and Alice Decker; son Jackie Decker; stepson Keith Lemley; and his beloved wife, Alice Decker.
Andy is survived by his Aunt Bertha Norris, who was more like a sister; stepdaughters Thelma Durham, Melvia Gebhardt, Sandy Marinsik and Katie Ellis; nine step-grandchildren; nine step-great-grandchildren; and three step-great-great-grandchildren.
Services: Saturday, August 5, 1 p.m., Bethany Pentecostal Church, 508 S. Francis St. Reception to follow at the Eagles Annex, 2-4 p.m.
Memorial donations may be made in Andy's name to Hospice of Clallam County.

--So BN is Bertha Norris. If she doesn't answer my call to look at this thread, we'll look to find her.
I found a Bertha G. Norris, born Sep 1928 at
124 Winterhaven Drive
Port Angeles, WA 98362
Write to Bertha, explain who you are in the family.
