Glorita (Andy) Doctor McIntyre, 78, of Mt. Lake Terrace, Washington passed away on March 18, 2017. Born in the Philippines, she immigrated to Kauai, Hawaii in 1946 at the age of 7 with her mother and three younger siblings to join her father who worked for the McBryde Sugar Company at that time.

She quickly learned English and excelled in school, often specially mentored by her teachers. At Kauai High School, she was a member of the National Honor Society. She graduated from Indiana State Teachers College in 1961. Because of her example, all of her siblings graduated from college.

After returning to Hawaii, Glorita worked as a social worker on Kauai and Oahu for the State of Hawaii Department of Social Services.

Glorita was a shining star in the State of Washington, where her commitment to people with disabilities was evident. She worked for the Washington State Department of Employment Security for over 30 years. She was a member of the International Association of Workforce Professionals and enjoyed a career helping people with disabilities find work and also assisting employers in structuring accommodations so that they would be able to hire people with disabilities. She also provided job outreach and community education. She was outstationed for many years at the Washington Vocational Services, a community nonprofit, and served on the Board of Directors over 20 years. One of the Board's creative social enterprises was obtaining a franchise for Auntie Anne's Hand Rolled Soft Pretzels in two locations to provide training and employment for clients and to raise funds for the nonprofit agency. After her retirement from Washington State, Glorita continued her advocacy for people with disabilities. She was appointed by Governor Locke to the Washington State Committee on Disability Issues and Employment for 8 years. She also was elected Chapter Secretary of the Retired Public Employees Council of Washington, Lynnwood Chapter, in 2013.

Glorita was preceded in death by her husband of over 30 years, DeWitt McIntyre; her long-time companion, William Freeze; her parents, Bienvenido and Sofia Doctor of Hawaii; and her brother, Julio Doctor of California. She is survived by her children: Cori Lei McIntyre Smith (Michael), Dona Rae McIntyre Cocking (Steven); and Eric McIntyre (Tamara); Grandchildren: Jason Cocking (Emily Kahan), Amanda Ballou (Jesse), Kane McIntyre, Gage McIntyre, Rafe McIntyre, and Anya McIntyre; Great-grandchildren: Rylee Coons, Sydnee Coons, and Kaizer Cocking, all of Washington. She is also survived by her sisters, Sofia Hilario Doctor, Clarita Doctor Kaapuni (Richard), and Norma Doctor Sparks (Stephen) of Hawaii; nieces, nephews, and cousins.

She will be dearly missed by those she leaves behind.

A Celebration of her Life will be held on April 22, 2017 at 1:00 PM at Washelli Evergreen, 11111 Aurora Avenue North, Seattle, Washington. Contributions in Glorita's name may be made to the Puget Sound Kidney Center at www.pskc.net.
