Margaret 'Peggy' Duda

Beloved Peggy Duda passed away on April 30, 2013 in Riverton, Utah at age 92.

She was born in Salt Lake City, the only child of Donald Joseph Reilly and Annie Crumbie on July 15, 1920.

She spent her early years and youth growing up in Salt Lake City, Utah.

She graduated from West High School in Salt Lake at the age of 16.

At age 18 she went to work for the War Department in Washington D.C.

A year later she was transferred to San Francisco, California.

She worked in San Francisco throughout the years of World War II where she subsequently met her handsome future husband.

She married Casimir Charles Duda on June 10, 1945 in San Francisco.

After the war, she and Cas moved to Salt Lake City where they lived for six years before ultimately moving to Pocatello, Idaho where they lived for the rest of their married lives.

(Casimir passed away August 20, 2009.)

They had two sons, Charles Donald (Kelly Peterson) and Michael Edward, (both deceased), three beautiful granddaughters, Cassandra (Ladd Dick), Mikalene (Russell Anderson) and Alicia Cattermole, and ten great-grandchildren whom they adored.

Peggy was an active member of Beta Sigma Phi Sorority in Pocatello for many years serving in various capacities, including President.

She was also a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

She was beloved by family and long-time friends.

She loved playing cards with her friends and met weekly for games up to her 90th year.

She was a fabulous cook and loved trying new recipes for her family to enjoy.

During the past two years as Peggy's health declined, she lived in Riverton, Utah with her daughter-in-law Kelly Peterson and her husband Bert.

This January Peggy fell and broke her arm subsequently requiring her to move to Brighton Home assisted living where she received wonderful care until her passing.

Although suffering through difficult trials, Peggy maintained a cheerful approach to life.

Hardly a day went by that she didn't laugh and that laugh was infectious!

She had a delightful sense of humor and remained positive to the end.

The family would like to thank those staff at Brighton House for the care she received.

She will be interred in Pocatello beside her husband and two sons at a Graveside service held on Wednesday, May 15, 2013 in the Mountain View Cemetery at 2:00 p.m. Section 48 East, for both Casimir ‘Cas’ and Peggy with Military Graveside Rites by the Pocatello Veterans Honor Guard.

Family and friends are welcome.

Arrangements are under the direction of the Cornelison Funeral Home, 431 N. 15th Ave., Pocatello, 232-0542.

Col. Mohammad G. Rahim

Sometimes it is better to start a beautiful story from the end rather than the beginning.

Surrounded by the love of his family–at birth, in life and again at death – Col. Mohammad G. Rahim, 84, Pocatello, passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday, March 13, 2013, with his family at his side.

He was born in Hyderabad, India on June 29, 1929 at home in a large household filled with love and affection.

Our beloved husband, father, brother, uncle, grandfather, cousin and friend, Col. Rahim filled his life with great passion for music, dancing, travel and family — most of all, his grandchildren.

Even in his last days, his touch told the story of the love he held in his heart. His last days were spent in Pocatello, being tenderly cared for by his physician sons, Fahim and Naeem Rahim, and surrounded in the supportive, comforting love and good spirits of his extended family and wide circle of friends near and far.

Col. Rahim was born before the partition of India and Pakistan into separate countries.

Born in 1929, he was the 9th child until two years later his younger brother, Yousuf, was born, who would remain his brother and best friend until the very end.

A mischievous, charming and infectious smile always graced his face, and he was full of good humor and the spirit of living life to its fullest.

He was the center of attention, the hub of his family and exceptionally well dressed. He was also fast.

As a young, talented athlete, he clocked 100m at a mere 10.4 seconds.

He received schooling at Madrasa e Aliya.

He remembered clearly walking to school.

His streak of rebellion began young: he was always getting in trouble at school during those early years.

The thing he would get in trouble the most was during choir singing he would start singing a wrong song and ruin it for all.

This likely instilled a passion for music that lasted his entire lifetime.

At 17 years old, he decided to join Hyderabad Army as a cadet.

It was September 1948, and during that time there was a war and Hyderabad had police action by India.

The Indian army had invaded Hyderabad with forces on their way to seize the state.

Many of Rahim’s colleagues went back to their homes while he stayed back in barracks.

There was no resistance and Hyderabad became a State of India.

In 1949, Col. Rahim relocated to Pakistan.

Rahim later retired from his military career with the rank of Colonel in the Pakistan army.

He later moved to the United States where he resided in Chicago, Illinois and Pocatello, Idaho.

In his last few months, he spent as much time as possible with his grandchildren–hugging, cuddling, teasing and playing around.

He left a legacy of love and commitment to family, which will be treasured forever and passed down to the future generations of the Rahim family.

The activity he enjoyed the most was singing KL Saigal songs in duet with his son, Naeem, who inherited his singing passion.

Col. Rahim is survived by three sons, Zahir Wasim, Fahim Rahim, and Naeem Rahim; a daughter, Shazia Sayeed; daughter-in-laws Kulsum, Amna and Beena; 13 grandchildren; and an expansive circle of extended family and friends.

Whenever and wherever Col. Rahim’s name will be mentioned, it will always bring a smile.

That is what he has left behind with us and we are grateful to him for this.

Funeral services will be held today, Thursday, March 14th with a visitation for family and friends from 2:00-4:00 p.m. in the Stephens Performing Arts Center Rotunda.

Burial will follow at Mountain View Cemetery.

Drs. Rahim would like to invite their friends and family and our wonderful community to join them for the traditional Janzah Procession, an Ibadat (prayer service) honoring their dad.

Pallbearers for the service are: Zahir Wasim, Fahim Rahim, Naeem Rahim, Ali Khan, Mustafa Rahim, Musa Rahim, Farasat Mannan, Shahid Ekbal and Khalid Jamshaid.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made in Col. Rahim’s honor to their not-for-profit organization, Idaho’s Hometown Hero Medal, which pays tribute Idaho heroes and supports other not-for-profit organizations, including Bright Tomorrows, The Idaho Food Bank and Women’s World Health Initiative.

Arrangements are under the direction of the Cornelison Funeral Home, 431 N. 15th Ave., Pocatello, 232-0542.

He was preceded in death by his grandmother and grandfather, mother, aunts Mildred (Kay) Michaelson, Evangeline (Vangie) Newman, Violet Winter and Uncle Albert Allen.

He enjoyed the annual camping and fishing trip with his family to Iron Bog Campgrounds every summer for 40 years.

He hunted with friends in his early years.

He loved bowling and golfing.

In his later years, he could be found in his recliner with a beer watching television or listening to his country western record albums.

At his request he was cremated and there will be no service.

A family memorial will be held at a later date.

Arrangements are under the direction of the Cornelison Funeral Home, 431 N. 15th Ave., Pocatello, 232-0542.

In lieu of flowers, donations to Idaho Youth Ranch or Friends of the Pocatello Animal Shelter, PO Box 281, Pocatello, ID 83204, would be appreciated.

Jillana Jones

Jillana O. Jones, 55, Pocatello, passed away, Sunday morning, April 8, 2012 at her home, surrounded by her family, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Jill was welcomed into this life by her parents L.J. and Bobbie Madden on November 18, 1956.

She was the third of five children.

The family travelled a lot because L.J. was a career Marine so Jillana developed a real sense of adventure and love of travel.

She learned great work ethic from her Mom and Dad and was never afraid to tackle a new challenge.

Jill worked as a waitress, in auto sales, banking, the insurance industry, corporate trainer, and finally as a cosmetologist until health issues forced early retirement.

Jillana met her husband Bob Jones at Oliver's Restaurant on Thanksgiving Day of 1983.

He chased her until she caught him.

They were married in Elko, Nevada on November 10, 1985.

They renewed their vows in a ceremony at the First United Methodist Church in Pocatello to celebrate their 20th anniversary.

The family moved to Guam in 1985 where she became the Operations Manager for a large insurance agency.

On Bob's retirement from the Navy the family moved to the Chicago area where Jill was employed as a Corporate Trainer for Applied Systems.

Jillana and Bob eventually returned to Pocatello to be near her family.

Jill is survived by her husband, her mother Bobbie Madden, daughters Sheryl (Steve), Brandie (Joel), Amber (Gene), son Christopher, brothers Lee (Cindy), Doug (Cheri), Dennis (Gayle), sister Dawn (Jim), sister, Lorella (Gary), stepson Robert, ten grandchildren, one great-grandchild with a second on the way, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Her children and grand kids were the joy of her life. Jill was preceded in death by her dad L.J. Madden, daughter Janet, and both sets of grandparents

A Memorial service will be conducted in the Cornelison Funeral Chapel, 431 North 15th Ave, Pocatello at 2:00 p.m. Thursday, April 12, 2012, where the family will receive friends from 1:00 p.m. until service time

Cremation has been completed in accordance with Jillana's wishes.

The family gratefully acknowledges the superb care and treatment that Jillana received at the US Naval Hospital, Bremerton, Washington and at the Madigan Army Medical Center, Tacoma, Washington.

In lieu of flowers the family requests that in Jill's memory interested individuals volunteer a few hours visiting patients in the various facilities in the area.

A little love goes a long way. Jillana exemplified that.
