On June 4, 1895 Mrs. A.J. Sawyer spoke to the graduating class of Mount Carroll Seminary in Illinois. The topic of her address was What Becomes of the Girl Graduates? It was reprinted in that summer's edition of the Seminary's newspaper The Oread."Progress is not determined by the amount of intelligence or intellectuality on deposit at any one time or place but by it's diffusion," Sawyer said. "With the education of women has come a diffusion and an intangible influence as permeating, as unobtrusive and almost as universal as light through space."One of Mount Carroll's first teachers Frances Shimer, who went on to take co-ownership of the seminary and was rarely away from the campus since it opened in 1853, could not be there for the 1895 Commencement. For the sake of her health, "our General", as faculty and friends called her, had been spending more time in Florida.Shortly before she retired one year later, Shimer made the decision to merge the all-girls seminary with the University of Chicago. She wanted what she called "a cause for which together we are laboring" to conti...Monday, June 19, 2017

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.

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 practicing Christian. Among her activities and accomplishments was participating as a server in Christian soup kitchens in Seattle and Wisconsin, functioning as a foster parent, being a coordinating member of the Square Dance community of the Olympic Peninsula; and she was also an avid supporter of the Boys & Girls Club, the Habitat for Humanity, the Sequim Food...
