Klamath Falls, OR
Pauline H. Stuedli, 74, went home to be with the Lord on May 5, 2016, in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. A private family graveside service was held at Eternal Hills Memorial Gardens. Klamath Tribute Center is in charge of the arrangements. Pauline was born on July 16, 1941, in Pasadena, Calif., to Paul and Rose Tahmisian. She grew up in the Pasadena area and, after graduation from high school, attended Westmont College. She completed her education at Loma Linda University, where she earned a bachelor of science degree in dental hygiene. She married Edward R. Stuedli on March 11, 1967, in Pasadena. Ed was practicing dentistry and Pauline was teaching at Pasadena City College, where she started the dental hygiene program. She was also employed as a hygienist in a private dentistry practice while teaching at the local city college. In 1977, Pauline continued her teaching career as a dental hygiene instructor at Oregon Institute of Technology in Klamath Falls, Ore. She retired from O.I.T. in 1999 and along with Ed worked with a Northwest Medical Teams Program from 2000 to 2003, operating a mobile dental unit that served underprivileged areas of Eastern Oregon and provided needed care to those who did not have access to such. Ed and Pauline were also recruited by ODS Health Insurance Companies (n.k.a. Moda Health) to teach and supervise the dental hygiene clinic at the ODS School of Dental Sciences in La Grande, Ore., from 2007 to 2013. They subsequently retired again, moving back to Klamath Falls. Throughout the course of their careers, Ed and Pauline also traveled on over 30 mission trips, providing dental care to those in need in countries such as Moldova, Liberia, Vietnam and Costa Rica. Pauline enjoyed cooking, traveling, and participating in relevant professional organizations, and was an accomplished pianist with an ability to play by ear or by note. She was a member of the United Evangelical Free Church and an active volunteer in several faith-based organizations. One of her highest priorities throughout life was to invest her heart and time with those organizations that directly corresponded with her steadfast faith. She is deeply missed. Survivors include Ed, her husband of 49 years; son and daughter-in-law Andrew and Jenine Stuedli and their daughter Savanna of Klamath Falls; daughters and sons-in-law Michelle Stuedli and Jim Boling of Beavercreek, Ore., Thea Stuedli and Chris Calhoon of Aliso Viejo, Calif., and Tessa and Todd Koch of Klamath Falls; brothers Steve Tahmisian of Huntington Beach, Calif., and James Tahmisian of Arroyo Grande, Calif. She was preceded in death by her parents and her sister Thalia Lavorico.

Being with Pauline on our Hesed Project in Israel earlier this year meant a lot to me, she was very dear to me in her loving, quiet, confident and peaceful demeanor. We shared stories of our times on Moldova Mission trips. She shared about her illness with me but this is still a shock. God bless and keep you in comfort and peace as you cherish your sweet memories of your lives with her. I am grateful to God I got to meet her and look forward to seeing her again in heaven.

I am just reading this now about Pauline. She will be missed. She was my first room mate going to Israel with FOI. She was a job to be able to get to know.

Pauline and Doc were so instrumental in my long career in Dental Hygiene. She was a gentle and comforting presence in a stressful program. I hold both of you in the highest honor and esteem. Lorraine Garcia
