Karen Schiewe, 73, of Pendleton, died at Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane, Washington on May 5, 2019. Funeral services will be held Monday, May 20, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church in Pendleton. Burial will be in Olney Cemetery.

Karen was born on January 28, 1946 in Oregon City, Oregon to Chet and Mary (Miller) Schiewe. She graduated from Pendleton High School in 1964. She attended Blue Mountain Community College, taking classes in business and typing, where she gained skills that would later serve her well as a clerk in the Umatilla County Assessor’s office.

Karen led a life marked by her interest in others. She put the welfare of family members, friends, animals, and even people she didn’t know as her highest priority. She especially loved buying gifts for the children in her life, often giving stuffed animals and books. A voracious reader herself, she believed that all children should have access to books.

Karen is survived by her sister, Sandy Macomber and her brother-in-law, Dan of Pendleton; brother, Roger Schiewe and sister-in-law, Janean of Beaverton; 4 nieces and nephews, Mark Macomber, Mahri Macomber, Ryan Schiewe, and Jill (Schiewe) Arzie; 10 great-nieces and nephews, and her great-great-niece and nephew. She was preceded in death by her parents.

Memorial contributions may be made to PAWS: Pendleton Animal Welfare Shelter or Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, c/o Pendleton Pioneer Chapel, Folsom-Bishop, 131 SE Byers Ave., Pendleton, Oregon 97801

A very close friend, Karen, is sadly missed! She made my transition to PHS, after I attended parochial school for ten years, very smooth! Forever in my mind will be the day of my first class at PHS. When I walked in to that class, Girls’ Glee, she reached out to me and invited me to join her. She relieved my anxiety tremendously, and I will continue to love her for that and her many other qualities. RIP Karen!
