Peterson, Anne*  
Anne Larocca Peterson April 9, 1938 - August 30, 2016 Anne Larocca Peterson passed away on August 30, 2016 following a brief illness. She was 78. Anne was born in 1938 in San Jose, California. She attended James Lick High School, then attended college at Arizona State University, where she met her future husband, Gordon Peterson (a longtime employee of The Idaho Statesman). Among their adventures, they were the last editors of the Tombstone Epitaph when it was still an active newspaper. They soon moved to Boise, Idaho where they raised their family. Anne worked as both a mother and with Idaho Parks & Recreation, then as a reporter for The Idaho Statesman. Following that position, she worked at Idaho Public Television editing the monthly Channels guide and creating press information and photography. Throughout her life, Anne was an ardent defender of women's rights and environmental issues, fighting hard for the Equal Rights Amendment and participating in the American Association of University Women, and helping to successfully oppose the Pioneer coal-fired plant in the 1970s. She continued her messages throughout her life. Beginning in the late 1980s, she became an owner and breeder of racehorses, and was active with the HPBA. Her interest in horse racing was highlighted by trips to the Belmont Stakes and Breeder's Cup in New York. She enjoyed travel immensely and relished new experiences and widening horizons throughout her life. Anne was a wonderfully kind, strongly opinionated person, devoted mother and loving wife. She was preceded in death by her husband earlier this year. She is survived by her son Robert and daughter Linda, their spouses Kimberly and Jon, and her four grandchildren. In lieu of flowers or cards, please consider donating to an environmental or women's rights charity.

Pope, Dal*  
Dal Leroy Pope July 31, 1936 - September 24, 2016 Dal Leroy Pope, 80, of Emmett, Idaho, passed away Saturday, September 24, 2016 in Boise, Idaho. He was born on July 31,1936 in Emmett, Idaho to Ersal Leland and Melba Evelyn Borup Pope. Dal spent most of his youth growing up on small family farms where he seemed to enjoy the hard work that came along with farm life and the increasing responsibilities his father put on him. While living on a dairy farm, the night milking was almost always his responsibility. In high school, Dal loved sports and played basketball and tennis. He went to the state meet with the tennis team in his sophomore year. He also developed a lifelong love of learning. He was a member of the National Honor Society in high school, and graduated in 1954, before entering college at Brigham Young University. In the midst of his college studies, Dal chose to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and was called to the New England States Mission. This was the beginning of a life of service in the church which included callings as a bishop and a counselor in the Roseville, California Stake Presidency. Following Dal's two year church mission, he returned to his hometown of Emmett and married the love of his life, Helen Marie Rogers. Together they raised six children. Soon after their marriage he returned to Brigham Young University and completed his bachelor's degree in Education. He later received a Masters degree from Stanford University as one of fifty students selected throughout the nation for a National Foundation of Science scholarship. He spent the next forty years as an educator- most of his career being spent at Del Oro High School in Loomis, CA. He served students in many capacities including math teacher, counselor, summer school principal, driver training instructor, and basketball and tennis coach. After retiring from Del Oro, Dal worked at Eagle Software as a consultant/ trainer for several years. Dal loved the outdoors and spent his free time fishing, backpacking, gardening, and photographing just about anything that came into his camera's field of view. One of his favorite outdoor experiences was a fishing trip in Alaska where he was able to photograph bald eagles, whales and moose, and fish for halibut. Dal touched the lives of all those he served-through his career in education, his service in the Church, and most of all as a devoted husband and father. Dal is survived by his wife Helen, his children Sylvia Walker (Tim), David (Rhonda), Brian (Nancy), Cindy Pavik (Mike), Nancy Palmer (Tom), and Brandon (Malorie), along with 20 grandchildren, 14 great grandchildren, and his siblings - Barbara Robertson, and Clayne, Rulon, Kenneth, and Gordon Pope. Funeral services will be held at 2:00 pm on Friday, September 30th, 2016 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Downtown Chapel, located at 1001 East 2nd Street, Emmett, Idaho. A viewing will be held at this location one hour prior to the service.

Vahlberg, Jon*  
Jon Vahlberg March 7, 1955 - September 3, 2016 Obituary for Jon Vahlberg George Jonathon (Jon) Vahlberg was born in Emmett, Idaho March 7, 1955 to Ruth (Leonard) and David "Barry" Vahlberg. He grew up with an older brother and two younger sisters. His early memories were colored with work and play on a chicken farm his parents owned and maintained. He graduated from Emmett High School in 1973 but not before becoming the youngest black belt in the Boise Shotokon Dojo. He went as far as earning his third degree black belt in Shotokon. He worked hard at the Emmett Mill to put himself through college at Boise State University where he studied and instructed self-defense, karate, and defensive tactics to Criminology Majors. He graduated BSU with a Bachelor degree in Business Administration in 1977. After College he managed two C R Anthony clothing stores before meeting his first wife, Debbie Hopson and her daughter. They married and had two more daughters before they decided to move their family of five to Kooskia, Idaho (Debbie's hometown) in 1989. They later divorced but Jon had fallen in love with the area and decided to stay. Jon then became a real estate agent which he loved. Being a real estate agent gave him the ability to schedule his work around his daughters' extra-curricular activities which he joined in and enjoyed. His most recent work was with Idaho Country Properties where enjoyed working every day because of his coworkers. When Jon met his second wife, Terri Alarcon the timing couldn't have been more perfect. They met May 12, 2006 and were married July 6, 2013. She was a real blessing in his life and he was so proud and excited to help her open her beauty shop in Kooskia. Jon believed in the higher power and was baptized six years ago beside his youngest daughter. Jon was such a loving husband and father. Jon was a very caring man who once met could not be forgotten. He maintained close relationships with many people through his life. Jon was the type of man who would give the shirt off his back. A real hero. The type of man that would not run away from danger but toward it if someone was in need. He was also the jokester, loved to pull pranks and full of good humor. His punchlines always perfectly timed and his laughter was absolutely infectious! His life was full of adventure from the start to finish, always having a story to tell and his grandchildren loved to hear Papa tell them. He was the master. Jon enjoyed playing pool, metal detecting, dancing, collecting treasures,and Boise State Football. He was passionate about politics and freedom. Most of all Jon loved his family…..and BSU Broncos…. He will be very missed by so many. He was a wonderful son, pesky younger brother, a cool older brother, a great dad, a fun and loving Papa and beloved husband. We lost him too soon to a heart attack which occurred on Saturday night September 3, 2016. He had been out walking with his wife near their home. He was preceded in death by his father, D. Barry Vahlberg. He is survived by his wife Terri Vahlberg, his mother, Ruth Vahlberg; his brother David Vahlberg; his sisters, Tona Henderson and Paula Terry; his daughter, Ashley and her children, Laith, MacKenzie and Ellysia Aasiby; daughter Whitney (James) and children, Korbin, Ayla, Odin, and Keara Aasiby; Step daughter, Jamie (Brian) and children, Coavin, Katie, Emily and Lany Coatney; step son, Mark Alarcon and daughter Azalea; step daughter Kaylana and sons, Issac, Zachary, and Mickey; step daughter Jonie and son Dillion. There will be a Celebration of life at the Country Center, 4313 Hwy 13, Stites, ID at 1 p.m., Saturday September 24, 2016. It will be a cover dish dinner in Jon's honor. There will be a second Celebration of life in Emmett, ID 3 p.m., October 9, 2016 at the City Park. Trenary Funeral Home of Kooskia, Idaho assisted the family.
