Longtime Coast Doctor & Volunteer Dies

The Coast has lost one of its finest citizens. Dr. Ted Riemann died Thursday after a long illness.

For many of you, Dr. Riemann was probably the first person you ever saw. The Gulfport ob-gyn delivered thousands of babies, and even made house calls.

Dr. Ted dedicated his retirement years to charity work. In a 1998 interview, Dr. Riemann told WLOX News Anchor Jeff Lawson that the joy in his life comes from helping others.

"The Lord said, love with all your heart, as you should your neighbors, and that is what I try to do," Riemann said.

Funeral services for Dr. Riemann are Saturday, February 15th at Trinity United Methodist Church in Gulfport. Visitation is at 11:30. Services begin at 2:00.
