Obituary — June 14, 2017 - Sequim Gazette

Monday, June 19, 2017

Carolyn was born on 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 ...

HELENA – Bob Ream died at home on March 22, 2017 with family at his side.  Bob was born August 2, 1936, in Richland Center, Wisconsin, the second of three children to Howard and Eunice Ream. He grew up outside Milwaukee on a farm owned by his maternal grandparents, where he helped raise chickens, can vegetables for the winter, and chase pheasants from the corn rows. Bob and his siblings, Lois and Dave, spent most of their summers with their grandma at the cabin, or “shack,” on nearby Lake DeNoon, hosting scores of family and friends on weekends. Refrigeration at the lake was a wooden chest icebox on the back porch, which the kids filled by hauling 60-80 pound ice blocks from the general store on their coaster wagon.Bob attended one- and two-room schoolhouses through the 7th grade. His dad transferred to the USDA office in Washington D.C. in 1949, where Bob’s new high school had over 1,000 students per grade. After Bob finished 9th grade, his dad took a job with what later became USAID in Bangkok, Thailand, then a sleepy town with lots of canals and few cars. The family lived in a beautiful...

BORN A KINGDIED A SLAVEThe moment was the young man's funeral.And the slavemaster – opioid addiction, the Richland Township funeral director said."I think he knew he was going to die in that moment," Harris said, his voice suddenly trembling. "A slave to addiction."People dying young is part of a new, heart-wrenching norm for funeral directors such as Harris. Men and women who have spent much of their adult lives arranging funerals for the aging and retired suddenly have found themselves doing the same for a generation of young lives being stolen by powerful drugs such as heroin and Fentanyl.Matt Decort understands better than most.The Decort Funeral Home owner is 33 years old – just a few years shy of the age of the average Cambria County overdose victim last year.Decort said he has watched onetime classmates, old friends and Portage neighbors struggle with addiction.And sometimes they've ended up inside a coffin in his Main Street funeral parlor."When it's people you grew up with ... it hits close to home," Decort said.'The wrong thing'Decort said he tries to erase the stigmas that still follow overdose victims – that they all are impoverished, lonely and down on their luck."Every drug-related funeral I've had, they were people who came from great families," Decort said.
