Eddy, Donald*  
Donald Lucian Eddy February 4, 1921 - July 24, 2015 Donald Lucian Eddy, 94, of Emmett and Boise, ID passed away at an Emmett Care Center on Friday, July 24, 2015. A viewing will be from 2:00 PM to 8:00 PM Wednesday, July 29, 2015 at the Potter Funeral Chapel in Emmett. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 AM, Thursday, July 30, 2015 at the Potter Funeral Chapel. Interment will follow the service at the Dry Creek Cemetery in Boise. He was born February 4, 1921 in Boise, ID to William H. and Zella M. (Groesbeck) Eddy. Don attended Lowell grade school in Boise and graduated from Eagle High School, Class of 1940. He married Vera E. (Lingo) in 1940 at Eagle, ID. Together they raised six sons and one daughter. Don and Vera lived in Washington, Oregon and then settled in Boise, ID for many years before moving to Emmett, ID in the spring of 1985. He started his young career working for Boeing Aircraft in Seattle, WA. They moved on to Ordinance, OR where Don started driving gasoline transport trucks for Asbury Transportation. Asbury transferred Don to Baker, OR and later to Springfield, OR. Asbury Transportation became Arrow Transportation and Don was promoted to Division Manager in the Boise area. Over the years after moving back to the Boise valley Don and Vera owned and operated several gas stations in Boise, Weiser, Middleton, Nyssa and Emmett where Don was still operating the Emmett business until his death. Dad was a very strong willed person. He often said: "There is the Right Way, The Wrong Way and There's My Way". He also had a very strong work ethic and made sure he provided for his family. All of his children remember all the family outings packing up all the gear and going camping. Their sleeping bags consisted of homemade wool quilts. He enjoyed taking his horse and going with friends on several pack trips hunting elk. One of the greatest highlights of his life, after the age of 93, was to fly in a B17 Bomber which was a plane he helped build at Boeing Aircraft in Seattle during World War II. Our dad is survived by his sons Bill (Linda) Eddy of Donnelly, Glendon (Kathy) Eddy of Boise, Elwyn Eddy of Emmett; a daughter Brenda (Bob) Cope of Meridian. He is also survived by eight grandchildren: Steve (Tracie) Eddy, Scott (Sherry) Eddy, Stephanie (Kevin) Booe, Cindy (Randy) Montgomery, Denise (Steve) Ayers, Pepsi (Tony) Odoms, Kristi (Greg) Polski, Julie (Alec) Cindrich; a step granddaughter Alishia Freeman and 11 great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, wife Vera; sons Dennis, Von and Ronnie; two brothers, Sabin and Merlin Eddy ; two sisters, Bethel Warberg and Marion Mosely; a granddaughter Donna Eddy. His family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and Jen with Heart 'n Home Hospice Care and the Meadow View Assisted Living who offered their loving care and support. The family would like to thank the many friends in the area for providing support and other services. Memorial donations may be made to a favorite charity in Don's name.

Johnson-Yost, Marlene*  
Marlene Ellie Johnson-Yost January 13, 1938 - June 27, 2015 Marlene Ellie Johnson-Yost born January 13, 1938 passed away on June 27, 2015 in Meridian, Idaho. She was preceded in death by her husband Donald Albert Yost and her daughter Dona Marie Canode. Don and Marlene were married on December 20, 1959 in Emmett, ID where they both grew up. Don and Marlene lived in many different places before settling in Boise, ID where they raised their three children; Dona, Darcy, and Dixie. Marlene attended Emmett High School where she graduated in 1956. In her high school years she was a cheerleader, and played on the tennis team. Don and Marlene lived in Moscow, ID while Don attended the University of Idaho, Marlene worked to support Don's education and prepare for their families future. As an adult, Marlene enjoyed her cabin in the mountains and enjoyed many happy adventures there. Marlene was very active in her younger years while raising her daughters in Boise. She enjoyed participating at their school as a member of the PTO. Marlene's grandchildren have many fond memories of her, and often referred to her as Grandma "beep-beep". She was known for her witty sense of humor and always had a solution for the problems of the world. Saint Patrick's Day was one of her favorite holidays and cause for many infamous dinner parties. Attending Boise State games and tailgating with Aunt Kathryn was one of her and Don's favorite fall time activities. Marlene is survived by her daughters Darcy of Meridian and Dixie of Richland, Washington as well as her grandchildren Lucas, Tyler, Hunter, Sorrel, Sawyer, Sara, Elizabeth, Jaime, Joshua and Rebecca. Marlene also is survived by her siblings, Larry Johnson, Maxine Robinson, and Dale Johnson. It was Marlene's wish to not have any formal services; in lieu of flowers please consider donating to the Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Foundation at www.info-kommen.org in memory of Dona Canode. Finding a cure for breast cancer was important to Marlene as she lost her daughter and she herself was a survivor of this terrible disease. For those that knew Don and Marlene, you can imagine in his own words Don saying "it's about time you got here!". She will be missed, but is together again with Don and without a doubt in a happier place. Remembrances may be left for the family at www.AccentFuneral.com . Arrangements are under the direction of Accent Funeral Home.
