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.
Family will visit with friends at Lindquist’s North Ogden Mortuary, 2140 North Washington Blvd., on Wednesday from 6 to 8 p.m. and Thursday at the Ward Chapel 9:45 to 10:45 a.m.
Interment, Farmington City Cemetery.

Ola “Bubbles” Trupp, 85
Ola “Bubbles” Trupp, 85, of Blackfoot, passed away on Saturday, Aug. 28, 2010 at Bingham Memorial Hospital following an extended illness.
Bubbles was born in Sugar City, ID, on Christmas day, December 25, 1924. Bubbles, the youngest of four sisters, was born to Alan and Gladys McQuiston Ricks. She was raised in the Sugar City area and graduated from Sugar Salem High School. She attended school only because she had to, but her real childhood joy was found in herding and tending her family’s sheep flocks along side of her father.
Bubbles married Wilbert Trupp and together they resided in the upper Snake River area and continued to work with the family sheep operation. Following the Teton Dam Flood, Bubbles and Wilbert relocated to the Aberdeen area where they owned a small store and also ran a small farming operation. Eventually Bubbles took a job with the Agricultural Statistics Service and received many awards for her years of dedicated service. During her time in Aberdeen she also drove school bus, primarily for out of town activities.
Wilbert and Bubbles were lifetime friends with Eldon and Ilene Young. Following the death of their spouses, Bubbles and Eldon became companions and enjoyed many good times together in their later years. Bubbles and Eldon, along with Eldon’s son Dell, spent time camping and fishing all over eastern Idaho, primarily at Bayhorse Lakes and Mackay, Henry’s and Blackfoot Reservoirs. They also enjoyed scenic rides around the area and traveled many different routes.
In life Bubbles also enjoyed downhill and cross country snow skiing, gardening, and even though she didn’t always remain active in the sheep industry she continued as a member of the Idaho Wool Growers Association throughout her life. Although she didn’t have any children of her own, she genuinely enjoyed spending time with her nieces, nephews, and other family members.
Bubbles is survived by two nieces; Sandy (Jim) James of Challis and Julie (Lloyd) Griffel of Squirrel; a nephew, Mike (Cathie) Mickelsen of Boise; a brother-in-law Donald (Jean) Trupp of St. Anthony; Keith (Mickey) Young of Firth; and Dell Young of Blackfoot; and many great nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Wilbert, companion Eldon Young, her three sisters, Bessie Kirkham, Madge Harris - Chronister, and Margaret R. Pincock, and a niece LeeAnn Schwendiman.
According to her wishes cremation services have taken place under the direction of Hawker Funeral Home and no other services will be held.
In Bubbles’ own words, “I came with nothing - I leave with nothing. But I have surely met a lot of fine people along the path and had a great time doing it.”
