The Goldendale Sentinel - Headlines & History since 1879

Caroline Rueter Basse


Carol was born September 29, 1930, in Seattle, Washington, to William and Kathleen (Gorham) Rueter. Carol met Stewart Basse while attending Central Washington University in Ellensburg. They were married December 16, 1950, and moved back to the family farm in Centerville a few years after Stewart graduated and raised their five children there.

Carol loved sports, camping, whitewater rafting and photography. She was affectionately called Granny Go-Go because she was always going somewhere.

She is survived by her children, Dawn Weaver of Goldendale, Jill Colver (Craig) of Pasco, Scott Basse (Sandy) of Shoreline, Drew Basse of Portland, Dean Basse (Sherrill) of Goldendale, ten grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, Stewart, son-in-law Fred Weaver and her four siblings.

Carol passed peacefully August 28, 2015, at Columbia Basin Care Facility in The Dalles.

At her request, no service will be held. In lieu of flowers, please donate to your favorite charity.
