Richelle Combs passed away peacefully at home on October 10, 2016 in Albany, OR at the age of 59 with loved ones at her side. She is survived by her daughter Makenna Combs, her mother Joan Carpenter, her sister Joni Funk and family, and her community of wonderful friends.

Richelle was born on December 21, 1956 in Seattle, WA to Joan and Richard Carpenter. She graduated from Dallas High School in 1975 and attended Oregon State and Chemeketa, focusing on the healthcare field. She made her home in Albany, OR where she raised her daughter, made long-lasting friendships, and worked for Mid-Valley Speech & Hearing for 22 years.

Richelle was an avid lover of games and an antique hunter to the core. She was a very proud mother, a lover of travel and ethnic food, and a gardener who took pride in having neighborhood gatherings. She'll be remembered especially for her sharp sense-of-humor, which she kept intact throughout her five-year battle with Ovarian cancer.

A celebration of life will be held on February 1, 2017 from 7-9PM at Flinn Block Hall in Albany, OR. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (
