Karen Dianne Odum

ODUM, Karen Dianne, (Vaughn), As a Valentine's gift to the heavens, a bright new star was added to shine down on all those that she loved and cherished. On February 14, 2011, Karen Odum entered into rest after bravely battling a short illness in Spokane, WA. Karen was born May 29, 1952 in Hemet, CA to Dewey and Connie Vaughn. While growing up, Karen lived in a variety of places that eventually led to her settling down in Washington State. It was here that she attended Cheney High School and graduated in 1970...the same year that she began dating her best friend and future husband, Phil Odum. On October 6, 1972, Phil and Karen were married and had two sons, Ben and Chris. Together, they raised their sons near the Cheney area on Chapman Lake. While living there, Karen lived in the splendor of nature that surrounded her family. It was the simple life that she enjoyed with many peaceful nights on the lake with her husband fishing and wilderness walks with her sons. Karen found happiness in the little things that life had to offer her. The sound of the frogs' chorus and the birds' songs that signaled spring's return, delighting in the antics of baby squirrels that grew up near her windowsill throughout the summer and the talk of the autumn turkeys in the fall. To her, these were nature's little gifts that she always cherished. Gardening was another joy that she shared with her husband. Together, they would spend time creating an Eden filled with pathways that were lined with beautiful flowers that she loved. Protecting her gardens were a multitude of beloved gnomes and angels who had each been given a name by her. Karen was a huge movie buff. Every night, we all knew that she could be found curled up on the couch watching a movie until the wee hours of dawn. For her birthday and Mother's Day every year, her sons would take her into the big city to watch a movie of her choice. Each time, she would get giddy over the idea of sneaking candy into the theatre to watch a movie and spend the afternoon with her boys. She was never much of a sport enthusiast. Oftentimes, she'd make us all chuckle as she would ask us what inning the Seahawks were in or if they had just scored a point. There was one sport that she did watch however, and that was basketball. To be more exact...the Gonzaga Bulldogs. Karen was a regular nut for the Zags! Even up to her last days, she would pump her little fists at the TV screen with enthusiasm as she cheered them on to victory. Karen had a personality that was hard not to adore. A very sweet person who had a twinkle in her eye and a giggle that could crack a smile out of the most hardened face. She was a very loving and devoted wife to her husband, never leaving his side whether it be thick or thin. She was a very influential and inspirational mother who helped mold her sons into the persons that they have become. As a wife and as a mother, she would have valiantly laid down her life to protect those that she loved. Even though Karen will be dearly missed, we know that she will always be there filling us with love as she watches over us and protects us. Preceding her in death were her parents: Dewey and Connie, stepmother Dorothy, one brother Gary, and her precious aunt Carol. Surviving her is her loving husband, Phil, of 38 years; two sons: Ben, 36, and Chris, 29; sisters Marcheta Worden and Debra Cooper; brother Ronald Vaughn; numerous nieces and nephews; and her young granddaughter Abigail Sporcic who she is now lovingly watching over. Per Karen's request, no formal ceremony will be held. Instead, she would like to ask everyone to hold their own personal service and remember her in each of their hearts.

Maxine Rantanen

RANTANEN, Maxine, It is with great sorrow and great peace that we announce the passing of a strong, kind and loving woman on March 2, 2011 in Spokane, WA. Maxine was born June 24, 1920 in Kellogg, ID to William and Mae (Hakola) Nearing and raised in Page, ID. She married Onni Rantanen in Wallace, ID in 1937 and enjoyed 59 wonderful years with him. Onni Rantanen was an engineer for the Union Pacific Railroad, and they moved to Spokane in 1945 where she lived in the same home for 66 years. Maxine was a seamstress who worked out of her home. She will be joining Onni who preceded her in death December 20, 1996 at the Hunt Cemetery in Kingston, ID with a memorial celebration of her life to follow in the spring., Maxine is the oldest of 11 children and is survived by brothers Richard (Sandra) and Jerry Nearing (Pat) of Pinehurst, ID and sister Elva (Toots) Meredith (Gordon) of American Falls, ID; her two sons Raymond Rantanen (Ranae) of Athol, ID and Norman Rantanen (Marlene) of Fallbrook, CA; her four grandchildren Echo Rantanen of Spokane, WA, Matt Rantanen (Lynn Marie) of Aguanga, CA, Mindy (Chad) Ward of New Paris, OH and Gordy Rantanen of San Diego, CA; and four grandchildren Dawson and Skyler Ward of New Paris, OH and Taylor and Graham Roe of Aguanga, CA.

Many of us have felt our waistbands expand under her famous homemade fudge, cookies and maple bars. There wasn't an outfit that she couldn't make or an alteration she couldn't do. She was head chef at the hunting camp, the nurturer of past ailing family members, the champion huckleberry picker and the thirty-card bingo player. She was our rock and our strength and we are better for being a part of her life. Mina Rakastan Sinua (Finnish for I Love You)., Memorials in her name may be sent to the Hunt Cemetery, P.O. Box 722, Pinehurst, ID. RIPLINGER FUNERAL HOME & CREMATORY, 4305 N. DIVISION, SPOKANE, WA.

Bill was a newspaper reporter, public relations man for the Apollo moon-shot rockets and the roll out of the Boeing 747. He was woodworker, novelist, mariner and boat builder. He and his wife of 63 years, Barbara, amazed family and friends when they retired in their fifties and built a 50-foot wooden ketch from the centerline up. They lived aboard "Fortune" for twenty plus years on Lake Union and sailed the inland waters of Washington and Canada. Bill was a fixer of anything and could turn a chunk of wood into a beautiful and functional piece of art. He had a keen taste for beer and the New York Times crossword puzzle which he completed daily. Bill left a legacy of lighthearted playfulness and a serious, compassionate attention to those he encountered as well as for fairness and equality in the world.
