Lifelong Vashon Island resident Barbara Steen announced today that she will be representing the 
Vashon Heritage Museum in a run for the seat of Vashon’s Unofficial Mayor.  Steen, committed to a life 
of community and civic service, will run on a platform that everyone has a story that needs to be told 
and that the Heritage Museum needs our support to record and give voice to those stories so that they 
will never be forgotten. 

Steen, a spry 90 year- old with a clear mind and high energy will celebrate her 91s​t​ birthday on June 27t​h​. 
She has been an engaged proponent of Vashon’s small-town way of living, demonstrated by her 
countless hours spent volunteering in our schools, clubs and a host of other civic pursuits. During her 
years of raising two children on Vashon,  her involvement in the schools and sports earned her the title 
“Mother Steen”,  a title that some adults who grew up on Vashon can still be heard calling her today. 
Barbara volunteers at the Heritage Museum on a weekly basis as a Docent, Collections Archivist, 
recording the memorials and managing the Brick campaign.  In the past she has served as the Heritage 
Museum’s Treasurer and recording secretary.   She is a “super volunteer” and respected advisor to our 
board, and her knowledge of Vashon’s history is an invaluable resource to the Museum’s Collections and 
Archives.  Islanders are truly fortunate to have Barbara Steen preserve our history.
