Selina Ann Oehmen, age 10, passed away on October 15, 2018, after a courageous battle with DIPG, an inoperable, terminal childhood brain cancer. She was the daughter of Kenneth A. Oehmen and Michelle L. M. (Macedo) Oehmen of Somerset.
Selina was a sweet, sassy girl who loved softball, Girl Scouts, arts and crafts, musical theatre, marching band, playing her cello and helping out at her church as an altar server and in the faith formation program. Selina made friends easily and was a 5th grader at North Elementary. Her smile and laughter could brighten any room. Selina had dreamed of being a scientist or art teacher someday. Her strength and grace in the face of this illness was truly an inspiration. She will be greatly missed by all who were blessed to know her.
She is survived by two brothers, Adam K. Oehmen and Jonathan M. Oehmen; her maternal grandparents, Antonio and Diane (Boyer) Macedo of MA; her paternal grandmother, Kris Adams and her husband Roger Hertel of GA; her paternal grandfather Mark Oehmen and his wife Lori of IL; as well as many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
