Nasset, James  
James Leonard Nasset James Leonard Nasset, 72, of Salem died December 15th, 2014 after a courageous struggle with lung cancer. He was surrounded by family at his passing and return home to his Heavenly Father. He was born in Seattle, Washington on August 29th, 1942 to Orville and Zoe Nasset, the 2nd of 11 children, Larry, Rick, Mike, Kay, Rose and Karen of Salem, OR; Sharon of Portland,OR; John of Spokane, WA; Bill of Sacramento, CA; and Robert (deceased). As a child Jim called many places home, Montana, Idaho, Washington and Oregon. It was from Mt. Angel, Oregon that he departed to join the Air Force, where he would meet his lifelong friend Gary Byers as they were being shipped to Bangor, Maine in February 1961. They both had to look at a map to find out where Bangor, Maine was! In Maine, he would soon meet at a USO dance and marry his sweetheart and love of his life, Norma Jean Hill. Jim and Norma were married July 1st 1961 and recently celebrated their 53rd anniversary. Jim and Norma raised 5 children. Over the years, Jim applied his technical creativity to everything he did, from a career at Boeing as an Electrician, wiring the first 747 to being a Realtor upon moving back to Oregon in 1984. Relentless in his creativity and ingenuity, Jim was awarded two United States Patents, one for a shift modification computer for Jeep Cherokees and the other for a Rifle Accuracy Tuning device. Jim was constantly coming up with ideas and designs for anything he came across in life. He had great electrical and mechanical aptitude and unique wit, passing those traits on to his children. He was well informed on so many subjects and would easily share his opinion on any subject he became engaged in. Anyone that knew Jim, would know where he stood on any issue. Jim remained active with his online business, selling Accurizer Rifle Tuners and Compushifts for Jeeps throughout the last several years. Jim enjoyed traveling with Norma in their motorhome across the US, with his favorite destination being Arizona for much desired winter sun, gold prospecting and time with friends. You could count on him to take Norma on Sunday rides weekly! Jim enjoyed camping, competing in bench-rest shooting at National Events, hunting with his sons, grandsons, granddaughter, and Gary, gold prospecting and spending time with his family and friends. Jim was a loving husband and father and is survived by his wife Norma and children, Brian (Linda) of Bellevue,WA; Brent (Stacy) Salem,OR; Dean of Helena, MT; Joanne Coots (Chris) of Salem and Carolyn Chichester (Dan) of Pendleton,OR. They enjoyed their 16 grandchildren and 6 great-grand children. A viewing will be held on Sunday, December 21st between 3pm and 7pm at Keizer Funeral Chapel and a funeral Mass will be held at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Gervais, Oregon at 11am on Monday December 22nd. Graveside service will follow at Sacred Heart Cemetery, Mt Angel-Gervais Road and a reception to follow back at Sacred Heart Catholic Church.

Nielsen, Reecie R.  
Reecie Rexford Nielsen January 2, 1919 - December 6, 2014 Reecie entered life eternal on December 6, 2014 at 11:50 AM with her daughter and son-in-law by her side. She was 95 years old and died of natural causes. The funeral service will be held at Prince of Peace Episcopal Church, 1545 Glen Creek Rd, West Salem on January 2nd, 2015 at 11 AM. Reecie was the only child of Lela Roxie Fox and Stanton Orlando Dobbins. She was born January 2, 1919 in Okmulgee, Oklahoma. Her parents' marriage lasted only a few years but Reecie loved her father and wrote to him in California whenever she could. Her mother, Lela, moved with Reecie to the big city of Chicago when Reecie was still in grade school. Reecie finished 8th grade at the old Ogden School and graduated from Waller High School in 1937. Reecie received a Bachelor's of Science in Math from Oklahoma A and M. While there, she met James Ellery Nielsen who was attending basic training for the Navy at the Oklahoma campus. They fell in love, eloped to Reno and married on December 31, 1942. Reecie and James spent a few years following his duty stations, during which time Myrtle Cynthia was born in Chicago and Ellery Joseph in Grand Rapids. When James finished his Navy stint, both he and Reecie attended the University of Arkansas where Reecie received a MA in Educational Psychology and Theodore Leland was born. Reecie taught school first in Farmington, Arkansas, then in Gary, Indiana, and finally for the Chicago Public Schools where she taught inner city kids. Teaching was her life, so when she retired in 1978, she spent most of her time being a surrogate mom to the neighborhood kids and grandma to their kids when they grew up. Any babysitting or visit would end up being a mini lesson in math, reading, or art. She was a very religious person. As a child she was baptized by immersion in a river. As an adult, she was confirmed Episcopalian in 1958 at St. James Cathedral in Chicago. She worked on the altar guild at St. Martin's many years and finally was licensed as a lay minister in 1987. In her later years, she would sing the gospel songs she learned from her grandmother and great grandmother. Reecie is the last of her generation to go to the Lord. She is survived by her children, Cynthia and Joseph Nielsen of Salem, son-in-law Dennis London of Salem, and Theodore Nielsen of Waukesha, Wisconsin; their children Dawn (Demers) Prosser of Salem, Robert Brian Demers of Daytona Beach, Florida, Eric, Jacob and Christopher Nielsen and Lisa Nielsen Orosco of Waukesha, Wisconsin; and 14 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. Reecie will be sorely missed by her family and friends. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the memorial fund can be made to Prince of Peace Episcopal Church.

Quintana-Araujo, Esther  
Esther G. Quintana-Araujo April 1, 1930 - December 12, 2014 Also known as, Queen Esther, Mom, Nana, & Shortie Surrounded by her loved ones, Esther Quintana Araujo passed away in Salem, Oregon, on Friday, December 12th, 2014. She was 84 years old. After battling cancer for the 3rd time in her life, she was too weak to continue forward in her bodily journey. Although she is passed from earthly family and friends, she is in the arms of Jesus visiting with many loved ones who went on before her. Esther's love for her fellow man was made even more evident while suffering through her difficult cancer treatments, fighting terrible pain, she never lost sight of ministering to, and loving others. When family, friends, doctors, and nurses entered her hospital room to offer Esther comfort and support, they most often left the room feeling as if they themselves were the ones supported by Esther's loving-kindness and concern. She was always in prayer, always sharing with others about God's unconditional love and mercy. Esther will be dearly and sorely missed. She was born in Huntington Beach, California to Francisco and Cecilia Garcia, and was the seventh of twelve children. She married Anthony Reyes Quintana in 1957 and had two daughters, Deborah and Esther, who she loved with all her heart. She lived her life totally devoted to God and in raising her daughters alone. She put herself through college, getting her degree in education at Pasadena Community College. While living in California she worked as a Head Start teacher. Esther and her girls moved to Oregon in 1975. She worked for the Salem-Keizer School District for over 20 years touching the lives of many families in the community and coworkers throughout her career. Esther finally retired, but kept herself busy crocheting blankets, riding a scuba scooter in Hawaii, parasailing, she learned how to use her iphone & ipad, she enjoyed watching both professional sports and her grand & great grandchildren play sports. She remarried in 1997 to her family friend from church that she had known since in her teens, George Valentine Araujo. What kept her most busy in retirement was her constant prayers for her family and friends. She was a prayer warrior, and was always there to call upon when you needed prayer. Esther is survived by her brother Henry Garcia, sister Evangeline Lopez, brother David Garcia, children Deborah and husband Rudy Godina, Esther and husband Jary Neufeldt, grandchildren Desiree and husband Todd Holcomb, Jessica and husband Jonah Hanson, Jaclyn and Jaremy Neufeldt, great-grandchildren Garrett and Gaven Feusner, and many loving cousins, nieces and nephews.
