Robert “Bob” L. Brown
July 25, 1939 to Oct. 20, 2012
Bob was born in Minot, ND, at Trinity Hospital to Mac and Sid Brown. He grew up in Berthold, ND, with younger sisters Nadeen, Wanda and Sandy. During his high school years Bob enjoyed playing on the basketball team and continued to follow the sport with great enthusiasm. He also enjoyed music and was in the high school choir quartet. His favorite songs were “Honey, He’s Not Heavy-He’s My Brother”, “Mister Can You Spare a Dime” and “Oh, Holy Night”.
After graduation from high school Bob married Viola Heller. She was his beautiful and loving wife for 55 years. Together they had two children, Vickie Lynn and Brian Keith. Bob and Viola also have two grandchildren, Jason (Brian) and Jeremy (Vickie). He took great pride in his family and was a loving provider. Bob served two years in the U.S. Army and had great love and respect for his country. He had many years working with machine parts, tooling, quality engineering, welding, truck driving, heavy equipment operator, restaurant manager, and quality assurance inspector in electronics. He retired from Boeing in Seattle, WA. Bob and Vi relocated to Boise, ID, where Bob took a job driving school buses. He enjoyed the job and loved “his kids”. He loved his family and friends.
Bob enjoyed big game and bird hunting, swimming, water skiing, boating, camping, car racing and motorcycle riding. He is survived by his wife Viola, his sisters, children and grandchildren, whom all share wonderful memories they will always cherish. A memorial service was held at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 23, at Summers Funeral Home, 3629 E. Ustick Rd. Meridian, ID.
Golda Mae (Tubbs) Misenhimer
Golda completed her journey on this earth on Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2012. She was born Nov. 23, 1912 in Holbrook, ID, to Albert and Katherine Tubbs. Mom grew up in the Holbrook area, getting her education in Holbrook and Bear River High School. Life in those days was not easy, coming from a family of 10, there were always chores to do like feeding and harnessing a team of horses for the day of work before school.
In the summers the girls would help cook for the harvest crews and tend to a very large garden, almost everything was home grown and canned for use later on in the season. There were no grocery stores to go to for needs. There were always trips in the fall to Utah to get fruit to be canned. Can you imagine riding a horse or in a wagon 15 miles just to shop or pick up feed, or riding a horse to school each day? (Not today)!
Mom married William Howard Misenhimer in 1934 and the results of this marriage were five children: Valora Spackman, Rigby; Kenneth Misenhimer; Dee (Connie) Misenhimer, Filer; Larry (Pat) Misenhimer, American Falls; Dallas Misenhimer, Midlothian, TX. From this came 40 grandchildren, 60 great-grandchildren, 19 great-great-grandchildren and four great-great-great-grandchildren. I think this is close.
Mom loved to sew and do needle point. There are many sets of dish towels out there that she has sewn for grandkids and friends and relatives.
After Dad passed away in 1966 Mom went back to work as a cook at the school where she became very close to a lot of kids as they grew up. Mom also would take care of kids from many different families in the area, and that is where the nick name of Grandma Golda came from.
Mom was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Howard, a son Kenneth, two granddaughters Margo and Allison and three brothers and four sisters.
There was a visitation from 12 to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 20, at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Rockland Ward, 405 E. Shoshone St. A short service was at 1 p.m. at the church, and interment followed at the Valley View Cemetery.

Gertrude Hulet
Our beloved mother, grandmother, and friend, Gertrude Elizabeth Gehring Hulet, passed away on Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2012 at her home following a long illness. She will be truly missed, but always remembered by her family and all those whose hearts she touched.
Gertrude was born Dec. 20, 1925, in American Falls, ID. She was the first child born to Jacob and Christina Ruff Gehring, joined later by two sisters and four brothers. Gertrude was preceded in death by her husband, Jay Hunt Hulet, four siblings, and a grandson. Gertrude and Jay were married in Hollywood, CA, on June 13, 1943, and sealed for time and eternity in the Idaho Falls LDS Temple on Feb. 19, 1960.
She is survived by her six children and spouses: Barbara (Don) Hartley of Melba; Marilyn (Sid) Allen of American Falls; Janice Rudeen of Kuna; Linda (Michael) Ihli of Kuna; Marcia Hulet of Kuna; Blaine (Yvonne) Hulet of Murphy; 15 grandchildren and 24 great-grandchildren, as well as a sister Elfrieda Gehring Chaffin, brother Kenneth (Nancy) Gehring, and sisters-in-law Barbara (Ronald) Gehring, and Virginia (Reuben) Gehring Arnold, and sister-in-law Lorraine Hulet.
Gertrude’s early years were spent growing up in a family with strong German traditions. She attended grades one through six in a one room school house where she was one of a few children who could speak both English and German.
She graduated from American Falls High School as an honor student and married shortly after graduation. During her early married years, she was a serviceman’s wife as Jay was in the U.S. Army during World War II.
She actively assisted her husband in their farming business for many years in American Falls. During those years, she cooked meals for nine hired men while raising six children. She knew the art of canning and canned peaches, pears, apricots, and cherries every summer for many years. The family moved to Murphy, ID, in 1967 where they farmed for nearly 40 years. During the Murphy years, Gertrude spent a lot of time on the road between Murphy and Nampa “running parts”, especially in the summer. She was Chief Operating Officer and kept the home and business going.
Gertrude always supported her children in their school and community activities. She was the first woman to serve on the Melba School Board and served in that capacity from 1973 to 1975.
Gertrude enjoyed traveling with her husband and family, and they enjoyed many family vacations to Disneyland. Her daughters were always ready and willing to join her on shopping trips, going out to lunch, or traveling.
Gertrude was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where she served in many capacities over the years. She was very thoughtful and loved to give and receive cards. Many have felt her love as they received a note in the mail from her recognizing a birthday, anniversary, or holiday. Her unofficial calling was crocheting around baby blankets and burp pads which she did for every new baby in her ward. She took organ lessons at the age of 80 and enjoyed learning something new.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Kuna Second Ward Humanitarian Aid Fund in care of Bishop Lane Thornton, 3224 S. Swan Falls Road, Kuna, ID 83634 or the Melba Valley Senior Center, 115 Baseline Road, Melba, ID 83641.
The family expresses their thanks for the kind care provided by her daughter Marcia, Treasure Valley Hospice, Care for Living, and Zeyer Funeral Home.
A viewing was held on Sunday, Oct. 14, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the Zeyer Funeral Chapel located at 83 N. Midland Boulevard in Nampa, ID. Funeral services were held at the Melba LDS Chapel located at 112 Randolph in Melba on Monday, Oct. 15, at 1 p.m. followed by interment at the Melba Cemetery. A viewing was held one hour prior to the services on Monday.

Ray H. Snow
Our loving father, Ray H. Snow passed away at age 86, on Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2012, in St. George, UT. Ray was born on Feb. 19, 1926 to William and Mae Snow of Aberdeen; he was the 12th of 14 children.
Ray spent his early years working with his family, milking among the many chores that a rural upbringing required. Ray along with his younger brother Keith, would milk cows then deliver 24 quarts of milk in a hand drawn wagon to the Club Café, a diner operated by their father. Tending to the cows, and delivering milk built a lifelong bond between Ray and Keith.
Dad attended school in Aberdeen until he traveled with his father to work in the lumber industry in Washington State.
While in Washington Ray made the choice to join the United States Army, and defend the country he loved in World War II going on in Europe. On April 27, 1944 Dad was assigned to the Army Special Services in Germany and France. On June 18, 1946, Private First Class Ray Snow was honorably discharged and returned to Fort Douglas, UT.
Ray married Lois Lorraine Lasley of Rockland on April 4, 1949. They split the difference and settled in American Falls. Ray and Lorraine had five children; Debra Rea, Lois Ann, Keven Kent, Nora Lynn and Evan Dale.
In the early 1950’s our father went to work for the Union Pacific Railroad first as a Carman in Lima, MT, then at “Flaming Torch” in the Pocatello, ID, yard. Ray would eventually be promoted to Foreman of The Steel Car Shop. He retired from the position in 1987.
While working at the railroad Dad and Mom purchased a farm on Fairview Lane. Ray worked with his wife, children, and brother Keith growing hay, wheat, and sugar beets.
After his retirement from the railroad Ray and Lorraine ended their marriage and Ray relocated to St. George, UT, where he spent the rest of his days with his constant companion Claudia Jorgenson.
He was passionate about the railroads and farming, but when not working Ray loved to hunt, fish, and make beautiful jewelry from the rocks that he collected and polished. Dad was a lifelong basketball fan, later in life Ray changed his affiliation from the Boston Celtics to the Utah Jazz and followed The Jazz avidly.
Ray is preceded in death by his parents, eight sisters, four brothers, and son Keven.

Joe Leroy Zaring
Joe Leroy Zaring, a retired CIA intelligence officer and American Hero, has died of cardiac arrest Sept. 17, 2012, in Washington, D.C. He was the youngest and only child of Roy and Mary (McLean) Zaring to be born in a hospital. His other siblings were all birthed at home. He grew up on the original Zaring Homestead in the Neeley area. He was valedictorian of his high school class and graduated summa cum laude from the University of Idaho with a perfect record – only the second to do so. Awarded a fellowship at the Littauer School of Public Administration (now the John F. Kennedy School) at Harvard, Mr. Zaring received a Master’s degree in public administration in 1943 during which time he wrote a weekly column of news commentary for an Idaho newspaper.
In World War II, Mr. Zaring was a non-commissioned officer in the 42nd Infantry (Rainbow) Division in France, West Germany, and Austria. After his discharge in 1946, he remained in Austria for several years as a civilian employee of the Allied Commission, serving as an intelligence officer and U.S. representative on the quadripartite Allied Denazification Bureau. He returned to Harvard in 1949 and finished his doctoral studies, but joined the Central Intelligence Agency without completing his dissertation.
An early enthusiast for European Integration and Atlantic political and economic cooperation, Mr. Zaring received several letters of commendation from the State Department for his work in this area, and in 1966 was asked by its Director of Policy Planning to undertake a special study of the outlook for European integration. A book on the importance of Britain’s fuller commitment to Europe’s unification, which he wrote during a year’s sabbatical at the School for Advanced International Studies, was published in 1968 by the Johns Hopkins University Press.
In his nearly 30 years at CIA, Mr. Zaring headed the regional and organizations branch of the Office of Current Intelligence, Chief of the Western European Division, and member of the Senior Review Panel. When he retired in 1981, he was National Intelligence Officer for Western Europe and member of the National Intelligence Council. The last research he undertook was an attempt to foresee the most important global issues the U.S. would face over the next ten years. He suggested that the decade would be characterized by growing tension between the need for international cooperation and the continuing demands for national and even local autonomy. That competition, he speculated, would greatly complicate finding effective answers to such overriding issues as integrating the Soviet Union into the international community, managing the partnership between the U.S. and an even stronger European Union, mitigating the growing inequality between the developed and developing world, and finding more effective multilateral controls over the expanding global economy. He was awarded the Intelligence Community’s National Intelligence Medal of Achievement for exceptional service.
In 1954, Mr. Zaring married Dorothy Jane Church, a fellow analyst and specialist on Italian affairs – a union that lasted 58 years. After both had retired, they devoted their energies to preserving and finding an effective use for a 200 acre historic farm in northeastern Connecticut which Mrs. Zaring had inherited in 1967. Buildings going back to the 18th century were restored and protected with landmark preservation easements, and substantial parts of the woodland were given to a land trust. In 1999 the property was deeded to Trinity College in Hartford as a center for the ecological studies and programs in the arts. After two years Trinity acknowledged it did not have the resources to create the center and the property was rededicated to Eastern Connecticut State University in Willimantic, where the center is going forward. For their conservation efforts, the Zarings received the Green Circle Award given by the State of Connecticut.
Mr. Zaring was an amateur craftsman, a serious cook, and an avid gardener. He appreciated many kinds of music – classical being his favorite. He loved cats. In addition to his wife, Dorothy, he is survived by two nieces, Arleen Bedingfield (Farmington, UT), Nancy Anderson (American Falls, ID) and several great-nieces and nephews. He was a member of Phi Beta Kappa, the Harvard Club, the National Press Club, the American-Austrian Society, and an associate member of the Woman’s National Democratic Club.
He was proceeded in death by parents Roy and Mary Zaring, sisters Hazel Stuart, Blanch Merback and Bonnie Fulton, brothers Chester Zaring, hector Zaring and Don “Spec” Zaring, nieces Alice Roy and Joann Stonebraker, and nephews Richard Zaring and Ned Stuart.
Interment at the Oak Hill Cemetery in Georgetown will be private. Remembrances may be sent to the Roy and Mary Zaring Endowment for the Martin Institute of Peace Studies at the University of Idaho, Moscow, ID 83844-3143 or to the Church-Zaring Fund for the arts at Eastern Connecticut State University, 83 Windham Street, Willimantic, CT 06226.
