Obituary — June 14, 2017 - Sequim Gazette

Monday, June 19, 2017

January 12th, 1946 in Spokane, Washington as the second of three children to Fred and Lorraine Riese.She spent most of her youth growing up in Richland, Washington during the booming heydays of the Hanford Nuclear Waste Facilities. Though dyslexic, she passed the rigorous testing required to become a stewardess for United Airlines, and was assigned to O’Hare Airport in Chicago, Illinois.She met and married a United Pilot, James Maciejewski in 1967. They proceeded to create a family, having two naturally born sons, Mark and Michael. They also adopted a son, John-Paul and a daughter Teresa. Carolyn and James were married nearly 34 years, divorcing in 2001. James passed away in January 2017 in Stevens Point, Wisconsin.In 2001 Carolyn moved from Wisconsin to Seaside Oregon to bravely begin her life anew at the age of 55 years. There she met Richard Hempel in the fall of 2003, and they were joined in marriage under the auspices of the Episcopal Church on June 12th, 2005. She enjoyed a great many activities and endeavors, among them travel, cooking, gardening, tennis, decorating, dancing, and quilting. She also had a life long passion for the art of Iconography.During her lifetime she traveled over much of Europe, some of Asia, to Canada and Alaska; and several times to the Hawaiian Islands.Carolyn and Richard moved to Sequim Washington in April 2007, partly as the result of an ill fated attempt to reside in Victoria, B.C., where the Canadian Immigration authorities rejected them. It was a “very fortunate” episode because they discovered Sequim. The warm and wonderful reception and hospitality that they experienced at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church played a large part in their decision to make Sequim their home. They purchased a house built in 1976 in the beautiful Sunland Community, and Carolyn lovingly remodeled and redecorated it into their “perfect home.”Carolyn Marie was a truly generous and loving person and a fervent pr...
