Naomi C. Foster
“Loving Wife and Mother”
Heaven became a better place on Friday, Sept. 17, 2010, as Naomi Clark Foster left many loved ones after courageously and optimistically fighting cancer for five years with various treatments. She was surrounded by her family at her home in Pleasant View, UT.
Mom was born on July 19, 1926 to Orson R. and Lucille Barlow Clark in Salt Lake City, UT. She attended Farmington Elementary School, South Davis Junior High and graduated from Davis High School in 1944. She then attended BYU. Following graduation from BYU she moved to Rigby, ID, where she shared her talents by teaching English, speech and drama at Rigby High School, Teton High School and Aberdeen High School. While teaching in Rigby, she was introduced to Ronald Brown Foster.
Mom and Dad were married in the Salt Lake LDS Temple on Aug. 17, 1949. Together they journeyed through life experiencing the joys and challenges of raising a family and farming. They made many great memories traveling together and spending time in Island Park, ID.
Naomi was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints serving in many callings including President of the Primary, Young Women, Relief Society, Stake Relief Society Board, Counselor in various organizations, teacher, serving a mission to the Island of St. Thomas, and a member of a sealing team in the Ogden Temple for nine years. Mom was a perpetual missionary, never being ashamed to share her testimony through word and deed. Her faith and patience were exemplary. She possessed the gift of caring about and uplifting others, even in her most miserable moments.
Mom proudly fulfilled her calling as a mother and a wife. She happily answered to “Hey Mom” for many years. Her family and church were top priorities. Naomi’s involvement with the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers, Book Clubs, P.T.A. and Scouting programs brought her much joy.
Mom realized the power of music. She spent much of her life developing and sharing her musical skills on the piano and organ benches. Many congregations, weddings, funerals, graduations, and musical groups benefited from her talents.
The family expresses special thanks to Dr. Vincent Hansen, and staff at Inspiration Hospice for the care they rendered to our mother.
Surviving are her husband, Ronald, of Pleasant View; three sons and three daughters, Ronald Craig (Kalleen) Foster, West Haven; Bruce Clark (Kathy) Foster and Marc Brown (Terri) Foster, both of Aberdeen; Jolene (Mike) Emery, Nampa, ID; Janalee (Murray) Olsen, Pleasant View; Jilane (Scott) Mee, Farmington; 27 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.
Also surviving are three brothers and two sisters, Merrill Clark, Ralph Clark, Gordon Clark, Ruth Bentley and Lucille Rigby.
Preceding Naomi in death were her parents.
Funeral services will be held Thursday at 11 a.m. at the Pleasant View 10th Ward Chapel, 3602 North 500 West, with Bishop Dale Woodward officiating.

Farren L. Cox
Farren L. Cox 11/7/23 - 09/01/2010
Farren L. (Buzz) Cox, 86, was born on Nov. 7, 1923 to Elvan E. and Kate D. Cox on their homestead in the Rockland Valley. He was raised on the family wheat farm and attended school in Rockland, graduating early in 1939 as Salutatorian of his class.
With the country in the grip of the great depression his options for further education were limited. He found his way to the vocational school in Weiser. He was disappointed that the only courses open were typing and shorthand. This disappointment went away when upon graduation he was immediately hired by the U.S. War Department as a clerk typist and found himself in Washington DC.
Following December 7, 1941 and the U.S. entry into WWII Buzz enlisted in the Navy Air Corp. Later he transferred to the regular Navy at Bremerton Shipyard in Washington. He spent the rest of the WWII on the fleet mine sweep USS Oracle which was engaged in many of the amphibious landings in the Pacific.
At the end of the war he returned to the family farm. On Dec. 29, 1950 he married Bettie L. Zbinden (nee Rowe) in Elko, NV. A bonus for Dad was Nancy, whom he helped raise as his own. Chuck and Mike followed in 1951 and 1953 completing the family.
They made their home in the “Yellow House” on Big Canyon. In the ‘60’s Dad began working for Lamb & Weston in the winter and the family moved to American Falls during the school year and back to the ranch in the summer. When the kids got out of school, they sold the house in town and set up the “new place” on Big Canyon where they lived full time, farming in the summer and snowmobiling in the winter.
In the ‘80s they put the farm into CRP and Buzz and Bettie retired from active farming. Later they sold the place. They kept the new place on Big Canyon where they continued to live. For several years they spent their winters in Lake Havasu, AZ, to get out of the cold and play golf. One year Buzz and Bettie fulfilled a lifelong dream by driving their motor home to Alaska and back via the Can Am highway.
Age and Dad’s declining health forced them to leave the valley. Due to the onset of Alzheimer’s disease Buzz spent the last several years of life at the Idaho State Veterans Home in Pocatello. Bettie moved to Chubbuck to be near him.
Buzz is survived by his wife Bettie, his children Nancy Anderson of Chubbuck, Chuck (Sherrie) of Boise, and Mike of Cody, WY; sisters Helen Lott of Saratoga, CA, and Naida Simpson of San Diego, CA; grandchildren Shawn, Matthew, Sara, Amanda and Cody; seven great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; sister Idonna Thornton and son-in-law Andy Anderson.
The ranch wasn’t the best farm in the valley, but Dad was damn sure the best farmer it will ever see.
Cremation has taken place. Memorials may be sent to the Idaho State Veterans Home, 1957 Alvin Ricken Drive, Pocatello, Idaho 83201. Arrangements are under the direction of the Cornelison Funeral Home, 431 North 15th Ave., Pocatello.

His works of art are proudly displayed in the homes of his loving family, many lucky charity raffle winners and the Power County Museum.
An avid golfer, he was a longtime resident of the American Falls Golf Course, where he has sunk seven hole-in-one shots. He used his love of golf to try to make a difference, once playing 100 holes in one day, to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis. Over the years, he and his wife June, traveled all over the area to play in many tournaments.
Gene had a passion for helping those in need. He made regular contributions to many charities including; The American Cancer Society, St. Jude, Alzheimer’s Disease Research, American Heart Association, March of Dimes, The Idaho Foodbank and The Veterans Fund.
