Alice Mae (Freed) Moore

As she drew the last breath that God had granted her on Thursday, April 21, Alice Moore completed with grace and dignity a life of serving others. Attending to the needs of others was a trait that served her well as a registered nurse and as a dutiful minister's wife whose cheerful presence came to be expected at functions in the lives of churches in Washington, California, New Mexico, Utah, and Idaho. Alice earned her RN degree at Jefferson Medical College Hospital in Philadelphia, Penn., near her hometown of Norristown. If a family member ever suggested a hike or a back packing trip, Alice's response was always an enthusiastic "Let's go!" She loved eating ice cream, entertaining in her home, and playing the piano, filling in as a pianist or organist many times in the churches pastored by her husband, Jim Moore. She is survived by her husband, Jim Moore, and sister, Mary. Her surviving children and their spouses, Woody (Clarissa), Tom (Judy), Susan (Mike) and Alan (Julie) will miss her supportive smile. Another daughter, Jean, preceded her in death as well as a sister, Marion. She leaves 10 grandchildren: Annie, Brent, John, Jonathan, Kate, Kaye, Kelly, Libby, Nathan, and Teresa. Each of them will remember her fondly each Christmas with the hand-made stockings she and Jim designed and crafted for them when they were born. Within the last year and a half three great-grandchildren, Lui, Sam and Will, were added to the fortunate few who can say they share a family heritage with Alice Moore. Alice died peacefully after over 92 years of helping and uplifiting her family and neighbors. No services are planned at this time.

Parking will be available in the Lincoln Parking Garage on the corner of University Dr. and Lincoln Ave. Michael was born on April 3, 1955 in Atlanta, Georgia to E.D. and Pallie Blankenship. He married Sheila Duncan in Asheville, North Carolina on November 23, 1978, and to this union, one son Ian was born. Dr. Blankenship began his academic studies at Asheville-Buncombe Technical College (ABTC) in 1981 where he received an Associate of Applied Science degree in Criminal Justice while he was working as a police officer for the Asheville, NC police department. Michael continued his course work at Western Carolina University (and remained a police officer) where he graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in criminal justice in 1983. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Blankenship started his teaching career as an instructor at ABTC in juvenile process and juvenile delinquency courses. His love of knowledge, teaching, and all things academic led him to continue his studies by obtaining a Master of Public Affairs (MPA) from Western Carolina University (1984) and a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) at Sam Houston State University (1988). In 1987, Michael was hired as an assistant professor in the Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Memphis State University. It was here that Michael began his career-long interest in white collar crime. In 1993, he moved to East Tennessee State University where he would serve as Department Chair, Associate Dean of the College of Arts & Sciences, and Director of the Teaching and Learning Center over the next nine years. In 2002, Dr. Blankenship came to Boise State University as the Dean of the College of Social Sciences & Public Affairs where he was instrumental in the formation of a number of research centers and new graduate programs. In 2006, Michael joined the Department of Criminal Justice family as Professor teaching introductory courses in criminal justice, statistics, and management, as well as in his areas of expertise in white-collar crime, gangs, and the death penalty. Michael was a long-time leader in teaching innovations, using state-of-the-art technology to facilitate student learning in his classes, including receiving the Outstanding Criminal Justice Educator Award from the Southern Criminal Justice Association in 1994 and the Tennessee Board of Regents Distance Education Innovations Award in 1999. Dr. Blankenship was an international expert on capital punishment and was often called as an expert witness on this topic. His research career is further evidence of his love of knowledge. Michael published well over a dozen articles in peer reviewed journals, such as Justice Quarterly, Journal of Criminal Justice, and Crime & Delinquency. Dr. Blankenship also authored and co-authored books and book chapters on statistics, data analysis, and white-collar/corporate crime. In addition, he served on the editorial board for the American Journal of Criminal Justice from 1991-1993 of which he was also the Editor for three years. Michael was a reviewer for numerous journals and publishing houses as well. His willingness to serve the discipline is also evidenced by his membership on multiple program committees for the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences' (ACJS) annual meetings, committee assignments for ACJS, the American Society of Criminology (ASC), and the Southern Criminal Justice Association (SCJA). In 1990, Dr. Blankenship was elected President of the Southern Criminal Justice Association. This level of service extended to the universities where he taught and offered his experience and knowledge to approximately 50 different committees over his career. He was a member of the Council of Colleges of Arts & Sciences, ACJS, ASC, SCJA, and the Western Association of Criminal Justice Educators (WAC-J). As his colleagues and students know, Michael was passionate about his teaching, abolishing the death penalty, and reforming the criminal justice system. Michael's hobbies included golf; anything to do with technology; and motorcycles, including enjoying trips with his wife Sheila to Sturgis and other destinations on their yellow Goldwing, where they felt so free and had not worries or cares; "We just wanna ride". He will be remembered fondly for his stories, laughter, and willingness to help and will be missed by all who knew him. Michael was preceded in death by his parents; E.D. and Pallie Blankenship. He is survived by his wife Sheila, and son Ian, with whom Michael had a very special relationship with and was looking forward to a summer full of playing golf. Anyone wishing to make contributions in Dr. Blankenship's name may do so to the Sam Houston State University Criminal Justice Scholarship Fund, PO Box 2537, Huntsville, Texas 77341, or to the Michael Blankenship Social Justice Scholarship in Criminal Justice.

Jack Rupert Niece

Jack Rupert Niece Sept 14, 1926 - April 10, 2011 Jack Rupert Niece, Born in Challis, Idaho September 14, 1926, Jack Niece finally hit the mother-lode when he went to walk with Jesus on the, "Golden Highway to Heaven" on April 10, 2011 after a long illness. Jack was one of the last original residence living in Stanley, Idaho that came from one of the original families that homesteaded in the Sawtooth Valley. It isn't any wonder that he had such a hard time leaving his old stomping grounds. Jack came from a long line of prospectors and miners, so it was understandable that prospecting was in his blood. He and his family worked many claims together. He passed the love of prospecting on down to younger generations, which will probably be an ongoing tradition. The many adventurous stories will be told for years to come. Jack loved his family to no avail, this was very apparent to the family, by the many cards and letters he sent home to his mom and dad while serving our country. The many photos of him with his parents, and brothers and sisters while they were growing up showed that they were a tight knit family. He will obviously be missed by family and the many friends whom he shared notes and letters with. Proud to serve his country in its time of need, Jack joined the United States Navy in 1944. Jack served on the USS Gregory (DD 802), was stationed in Guam and served on the USS General William Mitchell (AP-114). After being honorably discharged from the Navy in 1949, Jack joined the United Coast Guard and then re-enlisted into the United States Air Force, and was of service in Microwave Maint. He was honorably discharged from the Air Force in 1957. After Jacks term with the United States Services, he could no longer bring himself to hunt animals. This brought Jack to his love for wildlife. Jack spent many years feeding the elk during the hard winter months in Stanley. He loved to watch wildlife of all kinds. Jack seemed to many as gruff and grouchy, this was only exterior, once you got to know him he was a gentle giant, as kind as they come. Jack always showed respect to women and respect to those who treated him with respect. He lived in a time, when, a mans' word and a hand shake was as good as gold, you didn't need paper work, because the people he dealt with were honest and trustworthy. Jack leaves behind his loving wife Ruth Niece, (Hayes) of Blue Springs, MO., Sister Peggy Pearce of Gooding, ID., Daughters', Jackie Jones of Shoshone, ID. Judy Vance of Richland, WA., Janette (Mike) Barnes of Blue Springs, MO, Jim Brownfield of Grain Valley, MO.

Phyllis Leona Houk

Phyllis Leona Houk Jan. 29, 1934 - April 22, 2011 Nature has reclaimed one of its most precious and beautiful flowers. Phyllis Leona Houk was born in Arling, Idaho on Jan 29,1934 to her proud Finnish parents, Otto and Elena Gestrin.She passed away peacefully at home on Good Friday, 2011 . The youngest of seven children, she had a wonderful life growing up on the family ranch and being with her large and extended family in Long Valley. After graduating from the U of Idaho in 1955 (Tri-Delta Sorority) she taught first grade at Garfield Elementary School in Boise for ten years. It was there that she met and married Ferrol Houk. They later moved to Ketchum where they purchased and operated Bald Mountain Hot Springs Pool and Motel. After his death in 1975 she continued running the business until her retirement in 1996. Phyllis loved life and was especially proud of her flower garden in front of the pool on Ketchum's Main St. Her favorite pastime and a respite from the 24/7 life was traveling. She and her husband Mike Roundy were fortunate to have been able to travel on all seven continents. Someday they will be traveling together through eternity. Also, one of Phyllis' favorite things was watching, from our deck, as the paragliders became airborne above Baldy and landing in a field not far from our residence. Phyllis is survived by her loving husband Mike, her brother Albert (Donna) of Donnelly, her stepdaughter Karla of Alaska; her two sisters- in-law Dorothy Gestrin and Betty Gestrin, also of Donnelly, and many relatives and friends who will miss her dearly. A special thanks to our good friend Jerry Croce for sharing his precious little dog Lucy with us.....she was Phyllis' sunshine. There will be a celebration of Phyllis' life in Ketchum and also in Valley County, to be held at a later date.

Sam Collis

Sam E. Collis 1919 - 2011 Sam Collis, age 91, of Riggins, ID, ended his earthly journey on April 20, 2011 at St. Alphonsus Hospital in Boise, ID due to complications following surgery. Sam was born to Jack (William John) and Mabel Collis on September 25, 1919 in the high altitude farm community of Corral, ID. He grew up living the life of a depression-era farm boy with little in the way of luxury but lots of adult responsibilities and opportunities for hunting, fishing and exploration. He attended two different small, one room elementary schools and with his ability and teacher attention, completed eight grades in six years. He finished Camas County High School in 1936; then went two years each to Gooding College and Whitman College, in Walla Walla, WA graduating in 1940 at age 20 with a degree in chemistry. Over the next 16 years, he worked for Civil Service in various materials testing jobs, taking time out for two, two-year stints in the military during WW-II and Korea. He joined Boeing Airplane Co in 1956 where he was involved in several big-name space and military projects, including Bomarc and Apollo. During his years with Civil Service, and at Boeing, Sam became a recognized expert in aircraft paints and preservatives and published several scientific papers dealing with the subject. He also was a sanitation engineer; though not dealing with stopped up plumbing, but detecting and avoiding micron-sized debris in rocket fuel tanks. Since retiring in 1982, Sam has concentrated on gardening and high stakes ($0.50 or $1.00) contract bridge. He also, for a time, tried his hand at making award winning sparkling wines. He was preceded in death by his parents Mabel and Jack Collis and two older sisters, Margaret Hawkins and Isabel Ruggles. Sam's survivors include three children, grandchildren and great grandchildren as follows: daughter, Carol Williamson of Naples, FL and her sons and their families: Gregg Wilson and Kendal Wilson; son, Paul Collis of Hollywood, MD and his sons and their families: Daniel Collis and Bryon Collis and son, Charles Collis of Phoenix, AZ. He also is survived by an adopted daughter Chloe (Collis) Freeland of Oceanside, CA and a younger brother and his wife, Jim and Virginia Collis of Brookings, OR. For the past twenty years Sam has been richly blessed by the companionship and support of his late-in-life partner Eleanor Papineau and her children who include Clara Primmer of Rathdrum, ID; Carol Herndon of Portland, OR; JoAnn Remacle of Riggins, ID; and Ron Waters of Spokane, WA. We all know there's a time to start our lives and a time when it will end. We count as very lucky those people who are able to remain self sufficient, live independently and free of pain. Sam Collis was fortunate to be in control of almost every moment of his life. While we grieve at his passing, let us also rejoice for a productive life, well lived. God Bless and Bon Voyage. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in Sam's name to the American Legion, PO Box 65, Riggins, ID 83549 or the charity of your choice would be appreciated. Services will be held at a later date. Condolences may be left for the family online at www.AccentFuneral.com. Cremation arrangements are under the direction of Accent Funeral Home, Meridian.
