Obituary - Carolyn W (Jessee) Friess


Carolyn was the daughter of Habron and Ollie Mae Jessee. She graduated from Waite High School in 1958 and was married to Richard W. Friess for 61 years. They enjoyed traveling, camping, and attending school, dance and sporting events throughout the years.

Carolyn was one of a kind; the sweetest woman around with a very loving heart who treated everyone like family. She loved her flowers and gardening, her animals, and most of all, spending time with her family and friends.

A resident of Oregon, OH, Carolyn passed away peacefully surrounded by family and friends at Hospice of Northwest Ohio. She was survived by her loving husband, Richard (Dick); son Toby Friess; daughters Tammy Friess (Richard Garcia) and Brittany (Doug) Stork; granddaughter Crystal (Tommy) Lindsay; great-grandchildren Paige and Gavin; sister Sharon Marquette; aunts Betty and Clara and many nieces and nephews. Carolyn leaves behind many beloved friends whom, to the end, she held close in her heart. 

She was preceded in death by her parents, Habron and Ollie Mae Jessee, and her siblings Juanita Ballinger, Hubert Jessee, Kenny Jessee, and Vernon Jessee.

Family received friends at Eggleston- Meinert & Pavley Funeral Home, Oregon Chapel, on December 4th and 5th. A funeral service was held on December 6th at the funeral home. Carolyn was laid to rest at Lake Township Cemetery.
