Love and Support for Marette

Quicker than anyone's hearts and minds can process, our much-loved Marette Wakeman has been placed on Hospice care at this time at the young age of 62 as a consequence of cancer. She is married to Richard and is Mom to Paul and to John, who has given her a daughter-in-law Korien. She is the daughter of Cletus and Josephine Unterreiner and has the love and heavy hearts of a big family being sister to David, Paul, Mary, Allen, Virginia, Ken, Philip, Judy, and Loree.

Susanville has been Marette's home for most all of her life, knowing many good people over the years through her work in the California Correctional Center, owning and running her local shop which she has so enjoyed, and her involvement in various groups at Sacred Heart Catholic Church.

If you are feeling inspired to do something to comfort them during this difficult time, we have created this Go Fund Me page to offer an easy, truly meaningful, and very productive way for you - their friends and family - to show your love and support as Marette and especially Richard face the mountain of expenses coming their way. Insurance copays and associated expenses are anticipated to be at least in the $50,000-$60,000 range of out-of-pocket cash needing to be paid. Helping to ease the blow of this hardship, however large or small, is a great gift indeed.

Please receive this message as information for you and a reflection of the reality of their situation so that you can respond in whatever way you feel called. We extend this avenue of giving to you with no pressure or expectation whatsoever. As a gift choice which will last longer than beautiful flowers, any monetary donation that Marette and Richard receive from you will be a heartfelt gift freely and joyfully given and truly received with an abundant amount of gratitude to help them through this time of great need. Marette and Richard will be given updates frequently of the names and details of each of the donors to this campaign. Please share this page with others to help get the word out.

Thank you for your love and friendship. Prayers are being said for graces and blessings for Marette and her entire group of family and friends during this painful time.
