When he was a toddler, his family moved to Otto, Manitoba, where his father farmed and his mom managed the post office.

One morning it was negative 35 degrees and dad said it was too cold to walk to school. The next day it was only negative 30 and dad said it was warm enough and told us to get headed to school. " Some of his other favorite stories were about trapping beaver and muskrats in the lake. "That was good entertainment for a kid back then. " He loved to fish and hunt in his younger years. He told of fishing in the Snake River with his buddies. "I couldn't swim or float on water but it didn't bother me to go out in the boat. " In 1948 he went to work for Potlatch mill's box plant, later working in the veneer plant and pulp mill. "Being young and adventurous, that didn't seem to work out for me, so I quit.

Clarkston, WA

Judy Kay Wohlert, 76, of Lapwai, slipped from our arms and ran into the arms of her Savior on Monday, Dec. 18, 2023. Beloved wife, mother, sister, grandmother and friend, she leaves behind a legacy of love, creativity and passion for her family and friends. Born to Wesley and Carol Lyons of Boise on Jan. 7, 1947, she was raised by a military father who loved to fly and spent many hours as his co-pilot when she was a child. She was married to Ronald Wohlert at the age of 23 and they embarked on a lifelong adventure that included the birth of their son, Matthew, a move to Missouri and years in the travel industry that took her around the world. As anyone who knew her can attest, she threw herself wholeheartedly into whatever she set her mind to. She spent 16 years working at the Nez Perce National Historical Park and devoted her time and energy to honoring the traditions of the Nez Perce people. She delighted countless school children with her animated tours of the museum. She learned to bead and applied her talent to the art of making cradle boards, each tiny detail stitched with love and care. She loved the Lapwai Wildcats and cheered them on to many victories. Judy held hands with the sick and hurting and her fervent prayers availed much. She could throw a gourmet meal together in 30 minutes and never left home without her lipstick. To be hugged by her left her scent on your clothes for hours. Through tragedy and triumph, she poured all she had into supporting others and stood fearlessly with her friends and family over the years. A Proverbs 31 woman, she truly was a gift to her husband and everyone who knew her. Her absence leaves a void that will never be filled. We are delighted that she is now in eternity with her King. Judy leaves behind her husband Ronald Wohlert; her children Rachel Walsh, Matthew Wohlert (Libia), Kimberly Brand (Peter), and Shane Wohlert; her grandchildren Zoe Walsh, Aidan Walsh, Ronnie Wohlert, Ryan Wohlert, Christian Wohlert, Heather Bickish, Scott Bickish (Mickayla), Christopher Wohlert, Courtney Wohlert and Caitlin Wohlert; and two great-grandchildren. A memorial will be held at 10 a. m. Thursday, Dec. 21, at the Pi-Nee-Waus Community Center, 504 Main St. S. , Lapwai. Burial will follow at Spalding Cemetery and lunch will be served back at the community center afterward.

Clarkston, WA

Neahmiah Marcelino Murillo left us Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2023; he was born June 12, 1995. He was the son of Hector G. Murillo and Jennifer Hinton, a loving brother, a dedicated father and a friend whose warmth and kindness left an indelible mark on those fortunate enough to know him. When he was younger he would be seen on long walks around town with his mom and aunt. He found joy in catching crawdads and testing frozen ponds, reflecting a love for the outdoors. Neahmiah loved to go target shooting with his brothers, bonding over their shared passion for nature. Neahmiah was passionate about art, he was awesome at drawing. He loved to sketch with his uncle Richard who he has been reunited with in Heaven. He particularly liked to sketch Jesus and he was excellent at sketching faces. He would make comic books out of composition notebooks and shared the art with his younger brother Isaiah and his boys. In his professional life, Neahmiah worked alongside his father in construction. He was fearless when it came to roofing. When it came to drywall, he was one of the best, his height may have helped but he also brought a perfectionist's touch to every project. Neahmiah loved his boys, Hayden and Easton, with all of his heart -- they were his buddies. He was often seen with Hayden on his shoulders. He was a jokester and loved messing with his dad's gullible side. His smile would brighten the room and his laugh was contagious. He was always very loving, kind, funny and always could always put a smile on your face. He saw the good in everyone and gave the best hugs ever. Even though he was faced with mental illness he never complained about anything, he had an absolute selflessness and unwavering loyalty. He would give you the last pair of shoes he had if you needed them, and he would not think twice about it. He humbled many hearts and will be missed by all fortunate to know him.
