Jesse Boehme
12/17/2000 - 6/24/2018

What a sweet, sweet boy! Jesse had a smile that could light up a room!

And his red hair...people just couldn't resist to run their fingers through it. 

And Jesse would just smile, soaking in all that attention! 

Kathy and her late husband, Mark Boehme, served as foster parents for many, many children over the years and Jesse was raised in their home as their son since he was a baby.  No child could have been more loved. With Mark's death in 2015, Kathy has faced many obstacles raising three special needs children on her own. Jesse died Sunday evening in the Riley Hospital for Children.  This has been a devastating blow. 

The Indiana Medicaid provides $1200 for the funeral needs and $800 for burial expenses.  We provide a discount so the amount the family needs to raise is $1750 for Jesse's funeral expenses.  If everyone reading this would donate $1-$2 - together as a community - we would be able to lift a huge burden off of Kathy's shoulders and more importantly - let her know that we admire the work she has done giving homes to all the foster children she's cared for over the years...and she doesn't have to do it alone!  We've got her back.  Every dime is credited towards his account. Thank you!

Steven "Steve" "Word" Reese
7/30/1984 - 7/5/2018

Steve passed away very unexpectedly on July 5, 2018. With no life insurance this fund is being set up to help the family with defraying the cost of his Celebration of Life Service. Any amount given goes directly to the funeral home.   

Steven “Steve” “Word” Reese, 33, of Findlay, Ohio passed away Thursday, July 5, 2018.

Steve was born in Farmington Hills, Michigan to Edward and Lisa (Brown) Reese. Steve is survived by his mother Lisa (James) Reynolds of Findlay; children Lilianna Reese of Tiffin and Kalub Reese of Findlay; siblings: Thomas Reese of Findlay, Crystal Reese of Findlay, Hope Reynolds of Lima and Audra Reynolds of Fostoria and a host of loving aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his father Edward and grandparents Delphine and Robert Reese and Katherine and Thomas Wright.

Steve was an avid Detroit Lions and Tigers fan and also a Michigan Wolverine fan.  He loved fishing, sprint car racing and being outdoors.  One day while outside fishing at Riverside Park, Steve caught this massive fish and he put it on his bike and rode clear across town, keeping it alive just to show his family what he had caught. Most importantly Steve’s family was his life. He truly enjoyed the time he spent with them, especially with his children.

Visitation for Steve will be on Friday, July 13, 2018 from 2:00 until the time of his Celebration of Life Service at 4:00PM in the HANNEMAN FUNERAL HOME, 201 Osborn Ave., Findlay, Ohio 45840, Pastor James Klausing officiating.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Steve’s honor to his family c/o Hanneman Funeral Home.
