I'm saddened to hear of the news of the passing of Dr. Ried, who was my compassionate pediatrician from day one through college. A VERY GREAT man who inspired me to become a physician. My sincerest condolences to his family.

Dr. Reid was pediatrician to my three children. Such a caring human, I had no idea of all the wonderful contributions he made to our city. My grandson is planning to attend Strake Jesuit in 2017, I am so happy to know that Dr. Reid was instrumental in its formation

How sad I am to have not seen this sooner. Dr. Ried was my pediatrician and took excellent care of me until I married! One day he said, "Beth, you must get another doctor." I said, "Why, Dr. Ried?" His reply, "You are a married woman now, you have to come back with your babies...." God bless him, an excellent doctor and one that had just good common sense. My sister had pretty serious birth defects and he was amazing for her and for my mother.... giving excellent advice and making sure she was well cared for. Taking copious notes and making excellent records that were later used by researchers when they found the gene for her disorder. You were blessed to have him as a husband, father and grandfather. I only wish I had seen this in time to attend his service.

On March 12, 2016, Hubert Leo Ried entered into the eternal home of the Lord. Hubert, a native of Olean, New York, was born on July 27, 1922 to Charles and Clara Ried. He was the youngest of five children, which included two sisters, Margaret and Carolyn, and two brothers, Wilbur and Charles. He attended St. Bonaventure University and the University of Buffalo. He then studied at Georgetown University College of Medicine in Washington, D.C. graduating with a Doctorate of Medicine on March 17, 1946. During a general internship at St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester, New York, he met Jean Mary Hourigan, a young nursing student, on a Valentine’s Day blind date. On September 27, 1947, they married and began their 68 year journey together.

This journey began as Hubert finished training at Cornell’s New York Hospital under Dr. George Papanicolaou, who pioneered the Pap Smear for cervical cancer in women. From there, they traveled to Hot Springs, Arkansas, where Hubert participated in the screening of women for this disease to determine the validity of the Pap Smear. During this time, Jean and Hubert were blessed with Mary Virginia, the first of three children. In 1948, they moved to West Virginia where Hubert served several coal mining towns as a general practitioner of medicine.

In 1950, Hubert began his pediatric training at Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C. In 1952, while completing this phase of his medical career, Jean and Hubert became parents again, with the birth of their son, Mark. That same year, they moved to Houston where Hubert joined an established general pediatric practice. He began his own solo pediatric practice in 1954. During this time Jean and Hubert saw the birth of their last child, Celeste, in 1957. He also began serving in the Department of Pediatrics at the fledgling M.D. Anderson Institute, which was located in a converted residence on Bagby Street. Hubert served 42 years at M.D. Anderson until his retirement as a Clinical Professor of Pediatrics in 1996. Hubert continued in private practice until he closed his office in 1998 after years of a very active medical practice. Even in retirement, he stayed active in medicine by doing well-baby checkups for the Harris County Hospital District for several years. He also attended Grand Rounds seminars at Texas Children’s Hospital.

One most of his most enduring accomplishments was his involvement, along with other dedicated local Jesuit alumnae, in establishing a Jesuit high school in Houston. Their efforts paid dividends when, in 1960, Father Michael Kennelly, S.J. opened the doors to what would become Strake Jesuit College Preparatory.

He is survived by his loving and devoted wife, Jean, daughter Mary Virginia Ried Simpson and her husband, Gayland, their children Christopher and Lindsay, son, Mark, and his wife, Stephanie, their children, Arthur, Margaret, and Angela, and daughter, Celeste Ried Reavis and her son, Ried.
Visitation will be Tuesday, March 15, 2016 at 6 PM at the Bradshaw-Carter Home in Houston followed by a wake service and Rosary. Mass of the Resurrection will be Wednesday, March 16, 2016 at 10 AM at Holy Rosary Catholic Church, 3617 Milam Street in Houston. Burial will follow at Memorial Oaks Cemetery, 13001 Katy Freeway in Houston.
