Jolene Unsoeld Death – Cause Of Death: Former 3rd Congressional District Rep. and activist Jolene Unsoeld has passed away at the age of 89 on Sunday 28th November 2021 in Olympia, the capital of Washington state at the southern end of Puget Sound. The sprawling Washington State Capitol Campus, beside Capitol Lake, includes the stately Legislative Building and the 1909 Governor’s Mansion.
Jolene was born on December 3, 1931, in Corvallis is a city and the county seat of Benton County in central western Oregon, the United States to Cora (Trapman) and Stanley Bishoprick. She attended Oregon State University, a public land-grant research university in Corvallis, Oregon, a university that offers more than 200 undergraduate-degree programs along with a variety of graduate and doctoral degrees from 1949 through to 1951.
Jolene worked as a director of the English Language Institute of Kathmandu, Nepal’s capital, which is set in a valley surrounded by the Himalayan mountains. At the heart of the old city’s mazelike alleys is Durbar Square, which becomes frenetic during Indra Jatra, a religious festival featuring masked dances.
