There is a volunteer for Minidoka Co. at Random Acts Genealogical Kindness. Go to
Click on Idaho
Scroll down to Minidoka and choose Steve. Ask him if he looks up obituaries.

If that doesn't work out, do a Google search for Minidoka County Public Library. Successful Searching!

Thank you for your assistance, most appreciated!

I did send a request yesterday to RAOGK (of which at one time I was a volunteer-very reqarding) and hope to hear back.

The posting of the pictures link you provided was actually me, (PhotoGrapherInTheWoods), I submitted the narrative as well so it is not the OBIT, the one of "Bert" was taken by someone else who declined recognition, her husband's memorial is wonderful too!!!
be sure to click "Click here to view all images..." as ther e is a lambing time picture taken at the ranch.

What I am trying to figue out, if she lived in Idaho all her life, was she visiting family, and therefore not buried next to her husband of 18 years! -not like this lady at all!
