Greta Huit

Greta "Mom" Huit
December 10, 1917 - July 16, 2013
Born near Newell, SD, Mom was raised and schooled in Middleton, Idaho.
Her salvation, a life changing born again experience with Jesus, occurred in the cold winter of 1929.
She married Clifford "Pop" Huit on July 28, 1935 and gave birth to Kenneth December 28, 1938. Together they served many years in the ministry.
In 1969 they came out of retirement because of the love God gave them for troubled youth, opening their home to help all those that needed it. They held an outreach at what is now the Gene Harris band shell in Julie Davis Park. This was the beginning of what quickly became known as "StoneHouse", named after scripture and the cobble stone building provided by Morrison Knudsen, now part of the Ram at Broadway and E. Park Blvd. They were "Mom" and "Pop" to thousands.
With the help of Sheriff Paul Bright and Vern Bisterfeldt, they went to court with many addicts and thieves who turned themselves in for the crimes they committed before being changed by God's power.
Their ministry with StoneHouse lasted nearly 25 years until Pop's health failed. Mom was widowed April 14, 1996.
Mom suffered a stroke July 11th with her Bible in her lap.
She is survived by son Kenneth, and grandchildren Corene Jones and Calvin.
A graveside memorial will be held Sunday, August 11th at Star Cemetery starting 11:00 AM. A celebration of life (potluck) will be held shortly after just blocks from the original StoneHouse at Municipal Park (500 S Walnut St).
