Beverly Ann Wilson, 67, Orofino
Beverly Ann Wilson, age 67, Orofino, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Monday, Sept. 28, 2009. Her family and friends admired the strength of her faith and depth of her courage as she fought a 12-year battle with cancer. She was an inspiration to all who knew her. Her effervescent personality and impish smile always lit up the room.
Bev was born in Milwaukee, WI, on Jan. 31, 1942, to Don and Ingrid Ponozzo. From the ages of nine months to six years she lived with her maternal grand parents Lars and Jenny Ockerstrom and her favorite Auntie Sig in Iron River, MI while her father was stationed in the Philippines and her mother was recovering from illness. She was reunited with her parents and they moved to Weippe where the family helped to start the Ponozzo Brothers logging company. By fourth grade the family moved to Orofino where she went to school and graduated from Orofino High School in 1960.
She married Gordon Wilson whom she had met in high school in January 1963. Gordon was stationed in Darmstadt, Germany, where they began married life and parenthood with the birth of their son, Shannon. After Gordon's tour of duty, the family moved to Lewiston where son, Eric, was born. They lived for a brief time in Spokane, WA, before moving to Orofino. Here son, Sven, joined the family. While the boys were growing up, Bev served as den mother and room mother, traveled to sporting events and attended various other school activities.
Over the years she and Gordon took in seven foreign exchange students and numerous teenagers who needed a better place to stay.
For 30 years she worked as a secretary for the State of Idaho Department of Health and Welfare in Orofino. As a Sunday school teacher for the Ascension Lutheran Church (her second home), she arranged many Christmas programs. For 17 years, Bev served as Secretary/Manage for Orofino Celebrations Inc., the same position her mother had held the previous 30 years. Working with contestants was one of her favorite duties. Just a couple of weeks ago during the Lumberjack days, her mind and heart continued to be concerned about the contestants and logging show. Her dedication included volunteering for the Clearwater Youth Alliance where she directed the yearly fashion show fundraiser. Her compassion for all animals led her to foster dogs for the Clearwater Humane Society.
Bev is survived by her husband, Gordon, of 47 years at their Orofino home; three sons, Shannon Wilson and wife, Leanne, of Lewiston, Eric Wilson and wife, Stacey, of Orofino, and Sven Wilson of Plantation, FL. Three grandchildren, Kristin Wilson of Portland, OR, and Brandon and Kecia Wilson of Orofino also survive her. Special survivors include Aunt Sigrid Howerton of Independence, MO, several cousins, all of them her favorites, many special nieces and nephews, and also her beloved dogs at home.
Her surviving extended family include Dr. Scott and Kristin Fry and their children Steven, Emily and Mara of Milton-Freewater; Caroline Van Doorne and son Meryn of Holland; Andrea McConnell and children Brenden, MacKenzie, Allyson, and Bryden; and Jenna Nettles and son Caden of Seoul, Korea.
Preceding her in death were her grandparents Lars and Jenny Ockerstrom and Louis and Exilda Ponozzo and her parents Don and Ingrid Ponozzo.
A memorial service will be held Saturday, Oct. 3, at 11 a.m. at Ascension Lutheran Church with a Celebration of Life potluck luncheon immediately following at the Orofino High School cafeteria.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to Clearwater Humane Society, Ascension Lutheran Church, Clearwater Youth Alliance, or the American Cancer Society.

Tony C. George, 47, Kamiah
Tony Curtis George passed away Sept. 22, 2009. He was born Aug. 2, 1962 in Clarkston, WA to Theron and Judy George. Growing up, the family moved to Red River while Tony was in second Grade and he spent the rest of his young life on Red River, outside of Elk City. He attended school in Elk City through eighth grade and Clearwater Valley High School where he graduated in 1981. After high school, Tony went to work in logging and went into business operating Jacks Repair. He pursued his entrepreneurial interests buying into the Perfection Tire franchise in 1998. He and his wife Angela owned and operated the Orofino Perfection Tire.
Throughout his life starting at a young age, Tony displayed his ambitious and hardworking traits. In high school, he preferred the shop class over any class and always had money in his pocket working odd jobs and during the summers for Harley Hammond Logging. He was a talented Jack-of-All Trades diving into any project with zeal and an eye for perfection. Tony loved his family and friends, always a willing and helping hand for his parents who remain in Elk City in the family home at Red River, volunteering and helping friends and community members in Kamiah and Orofino, or being the camp cook, creating his mouth watering dishes he so loved to make. Tony was very involved in his children's lives taking them hunting, fishing, dirt biking and camping. He supported them in their multitude of sports activities attending games, helping out with fundraisers and anything else that he could do. He and Angela built a beautiful home overlooking the Clearwater River and invested in additional real estate. He so enjoyed the "fixer upper" homes they would purchase, finding the diamond in the rough, completing all repairs and maintenance himself, turning the properties into profitable income rentals. He was ever watchful for more rough diamonds. Needless to say really, Tony was involved in so many different activities that we just don't have room to detail. Just ask any of his family and friends, and each one will tell you something about Tony, his life and good memories!
Tony is survived by his wife, Angela and children Cassidee, Garrett and Brycen all of Kamiah; his children Casey George, Kayla George and boyfriend Travis Beller, Breeana and husband Jeremy Dalton, all of Lewiston; parents Judy and Theron George of Red River; sister Tammy and husband Tony Shuyler of Boise, nieces Sarah Whipple and husband Jason of McCall, Summer Workman of Boise, and grandmother (Nana), Viola George of Clarkston; as well as many extended family members.
Tony is preceded in death by his grandmother and grandfather, Mary and Rhinehart Sudbrink; and grandfather, Glen George.
Tony loved his family dearly and touched many lives throughout his lifetime. He will be greatly missed by all that knew him, his dear family, friends, co-workers, loyal customers and by his favorite family pet "Simon".
A memorial service was held Friday, Sept. 25 at St. Catherine's Catholic Church in Kamiah. The family requests in lieu of flowers, donations be made in honor of Tony to the Back Country Medics at PO Box 586 Orofino, ID 83544.

Holly Renee Jacobson Messelt, 42, formerly of Southwick
On Thursday, Sept. 17, 2009, Holly Renee Jacobson Messelt left this world to be with her Lord and Savior. She was met there by her father, Robert Lewis Jacobson.
She leaves behind two beautiful daughters, Casey Lynn Jacobson, 11 years, and Audrey Rose Messelt, 11 months. Holly's daughters were the light and joy of her life. She was a wonderful wife and an awesome mother. Holly would never rest until she was sure all her babies' needs were met and they were well cared for. Holly would sometimes place more care into the needs of others before herself, and she was a diligent worker and took pride in everything she did.
Holly loved winter, and would always try to get this "Southern Boy" to try winter sports such as snowmobiling or skiing. Holly loved her horses and just about anything to do with a horse. Holly had a smile that would light up the darkest day, and all who met her instantly liked her. Holly would start every day with a prayer and a warm hello and, for me, "Good morning, lover."
Holly was born Nov. 4, 1966, at Phoenix, AZ. She lived in Southwick until age 10, then in Clarkston, WA. She graduated from Clarkston High School and attended the American College in Arizona.
Holly, you are so loved and missed. There will never be another like you and your memory will never be allowed to die. Go with Jesus, my love, and I know you are watching over your girls and me from above.
Vassar-Rawls Funeral Home has been entrusted with arrangements.
