Dahni Lynn Malgarini-Logar passed away peacefully on February 23rd with her family by her side. Dahni was born in Tacoma Washington, to Don and Joan (Nachtsheim) Malgarini, and grew up in Enumclaw. She spent her entire life living in the South King County area and contributed her talents to many organizations, community groups and professional associations.
Her husband, Pete Logar, came into her life in the early 80’s and together, they created a home filled with their three sons, and often many of their sons’ friends. Dahni was a proud mom to three wonderful, caring children, Peter, Jake, and Sam and was a doting grandmother to her only grandson Declan. These boys were everything to Dahni, and she gave her full support to them in all that they did. Dahni adored all of “her men”. She was unstoppable - running, skiing, hiking, rafting, camping, crafting and endless hours of volunteering supporting their boys’ schools, sports, her church, and countless scouting activities. Her boys can recall all the times that mom cheered them on in victory, and more importantly, when she picked them up after tough losses and fantastic failures. She showed her boys the only way to live is to keep getting back up, find the good in people, and do what you can to bring about more good.
Dahni will be remembered by her family and friends as loyal, loving, and full of life. She was fierce in her dedication to her family, and vast circle of friends. Dahni was always there for her loved ones, jumping in without hesitation to help no matter the task or need. She loved being with friends, often offering to host gatherings, and will be fondly remembered for her laughter, playful ribbing, sense of humor and most importantly, for her compassion and love. And let us not forget her love of celebrations, parties, and family and group trips! She was a master organizer and arranger and could coordinate an event down to which size Ziploc bags would be needed at the end of the event. Everything Dahni lent her talents to was better because of her involvement.
Many of these family and friends also benefited from her real estate expertise. Dahni was a dedicated Realtor® and broker with REMAX Integrity, a Realtor volunteer and all-around fantastic person. Dahni was a beloved leader in the Realtor family, her work within the organization was comprehensive and always focused on bringing leaders forward. She led by example. She was a graduate of the Washington Realtor® Leadership Academy and served on the state Board of Directors, its Executive Committee and as an RPAC Trustee. She was recently named as the Vice Chair of the WR Legislative Steering Committee and as the Federal Political Coordinator for Congressman Adam Smith in the 9th Congressional District. Dahni was a National Association of Realtors Director and served on the Risk Management and Conventional Finance Committees. She was awarded the highest of honors from Seattle King County Realtors, when she was named Realtor of the Year for 2022 and was the current President-Elect for Seattle King County Realtors for 2023 and would have served as its President in 2024.
She enriched the lives of all who knew her. Her beautiful smile and her presence will be terribly missed by all.
