Clifford Monroe Bromling
Clifford Monroe Bromling celebrated his 100th birthday on March 21 with a gathering of family and friends at the Courtyard retirement home in Colfax.
Bromling was born March 21, 1908, in Madison Lake, Minn. The seventh of eight children, he traveled on the train as a young boy with his mother and four of his siblings from Minnesota to Spokane. That city became his home.
Bromling graduated from North Central High School in 1927 and from Whitworth College in 1931. He was the first and only one of his family to go to college.
He put himself through college, working at the Whitworth service station and earned his room and board plus $30 a month. His tuition was $125 a semester.
He met Maxine Alexander at Whitworth and the couple were married in June 1934.
Both were teachers. The family moved to Everett in 1945 so that Clifford could take a job at Everett High School teaching mechanical drawing. He retired from Cascade High School and as supervisor of Everett School District’s industrial arts department in 1973. Maxine taught first and second grades in the Edmonds School District. The Bromlings designed the house that he built in Mukilteo in 1959. Maxine died in 1981.
In 1983, Clifford married Elaine Millard. They lived in Mukilteo until 1999, when he had a heart attack. In January 2000, they moved to Oakesdale in Eastern Washington. Elaine died in 2004.
Clifford has two children and two grandchildren.
He attributes his long life to hard work and taking good care of himself.
He always had more than one job and started the driver’s education program at Everett Junior College, later Everett Community College. He managed a youth center in Everett called the Gull’s Nest, a downtown dance hall for high school kids. He raised chickens, was a beekeeper and sold tickets at Everett High School sporting events.
Clifford said he never would have dreamed he would reach 100. When he was young, he didn’t think people lived to be that age. He says it’s like the advertisement, “I can’t believe it’s not butter.”
Clifford’s birthday is a three-generation birthday. He shares it with his late father and his son.
Clifford lives at the Courtyard in Colfax, and those who know Clifford can write to him there.
