John Lloyd Siemens ’46

John Lloyd Siemens ’46, March 5, 2010, in Port Angeles, Washington. John attended Reed for a year, and received an MD from the University of Oregon Medical School. He and nursing student Patricia Rush met during that time; they were married for 62 years. In 1950, John completed an internship and family practice residency in Portland, and the couple moved to Port Angeles, where they started a medical practice. The practice evolved into the Port Angeles Physicians Clinic, from which John retired in 1994. With the U.S. Navy during the Korean War, John provided medical services on transport ships between Seattle and Korea. He also had a sabbatical in the Marshall Islands in the early ’70s. John was active in Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, president of the YMCA board of directors, and a member of the Hurricane Ridge ski patrol. In retirement, he continued to hike in the Olympic Mountains, bike, travel, and to spend quality time with his family. Survivors include his wife, daughter, son, and five grandchildren.
