Coral Lee Chalice, beloved wife, mother and grandmother, died Tuesday, February 6th, after a 16-month battle with pancreatic cancer.
Born July 20, 1943, to LeRoy & Adella (Olson) Kastner, Coral was raised and attended school in Bellingham. As a child, she ran the aisles of the American and Mt. Baker Theatres, where her father was manager. Her mother worked full-time as a supervisor at the phone company, so Coral spent a lot of time with her grandmother, who had emigrated from Norway and lived in the family home, and her older sister, Marlene. Hers was a close-knit, hard-working family.

From early childhood at age 5, Coral and Marlene were artistic roller skaters, an activity Coral enjoyed up until the final weeks of her life. She skated competitively, winning numerous state, regional and, ultimately, national titles, including her 5th place finish at the U.S. Nationals in her division this past August. In her youth, she competed in freestyle, figures and pairs events. In later years, she focused on both solo and partner dance skating. In addition, she was a coach, mentoring many skaters of all ages. She was admired for her grace and elegance. Through skating, Coral made countless friendships she treasured her entire life.

A devoted mother and grandmother, Coral enjoyed sewing and knitting for her family and friends. She made elaborate skating costumes as well as intricate Irish sweaters. Having grown up in a musical family, she had a lovely voice and enjoyed singing in the church choir and also participating in community theater productions.

Coral is survived by her husband, Don Chalice, with whom she spent over 30 wonderful years; daughter and her fiance, Piper Lee Eger and Michael Rickert; daughter, Holly Graham; son and daughter-in-law, Kevin and Lynne Graham; grandchildren, Kyle Cleveland, Austin Clevenger, Christopher Eger, Mason Eger, and Emma Graham; sister and brother-in-law, Marlene & Jerry Bruland; her niece and nephew, Jami Giammusso and Alan Bruland; and former son-in-law, Randall Eger. Cousins Lori and John Daphiny, Sheldon,Loren, Benny, Bonnie Banks.

Her friends and family were inspired by the courage with which she faced her illness. She had a positive and cheerful demeanor to the end, comforting her family who were by her side throughout the final days and maintaining her quick wit and sense of humor.

The family wishes to thank everyone for your support through this very difficult time.

Memorials are suggested to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital

Northwest Gold Medalist Archives lists skaters from the Northwest who deserve recognition for passing the highest test in skating, the Gold Medal.

Please visit the following link:

It is my opinion that reaching the Gold Medal goal is to be congratulated and those skaters should be remembered for this just as champions are remembered. This is not a complete list of Gold Medal skaters at this point and I will add to this as I receive confirmation on others.
These tests results have been recorded in a book put out by the RSROA for the years 1946-1983, and from Skate Magazines. I am trying to get the test records from 1984-present from the RSA office. This is not an easy task as you can imagine. When looking for the skaters, I have them listed both by the year and alphabetically.
Remember the ladies may have different last names since they took the test. Any information on the married or maiden names would be appreciated. I have tried to post those in brackets.
Thank you Hazel Inman for helping me with the research.
-Marlene
