DAYTON, IDAHO – A wonderful cowboy, Marvin Ray Archibald, 72, took his final ride over the mountains on Monday, Oct. 6, 2014, at the Franklin County Transitional Care Center in Preston, after a courageous battle with lung cancer. He was surrounded by his loving family. Marvin was born in Preston, on Nov. 15, 1941, to Ray and Areta Bebee Archibald.

Marvin’s greatest joys were his family and friends. Marv was an amazing water skier. He also loved snowmobiling, snow skiing and sitting around the campfire with all his friends and family. One of his favorite pastimes was sitting with his friends drinking coffee at the local coffee shop solving all the world’s problems. He was an accomplished leather worker, Dutch oven cook and horseman. Marv was at home on a horse in the mountains more than anywhere else. No matter where Marv was, there was always joy, laughing, teasing and fun.

In his younger years, Marv worked for Valley Paving then later owned his own cement business called Archibald Construction. He was a master of concrete and its various applications and was known for his exceptional work. He also drove truck with Dennis Cole at Cole Trucking and worked as a mechanic for Wade LaMont. In his later years he was a water master with the Mink Creek Irrigation Company where he spent many hours making sure that his water customers were taken care of. Along with that job came many cups of coffee. He retired from the irrigation company in 2010.

Marv is survived by his son, Victor Ray Archibald, of Las Vegas, Nev.; and his daughter, Marti Lin Archibald, of Idaho Falls, Idaho; his grandchildren, Ricki (Ron) Miller, Dillon Archibald, Mandie Horrocks, Danyelle Felde, Becki Felde; and his great-grandchildren, Alexis Ramirez and Jase Ramirez, Saij Archibald and Merci Horrocks. He is also survived by his sister, Caryol (Jerry) Tolman; and many nieces and nephews that will miss him very much. He also leaves behind his faithful horse, “Dudley.” He was preceded in death by his parents; his sister, Norma Whitney; brother, Gordon Archibald; and a good friend and soul mate, Vickie, of Tooele, Utah. And of course we can’t forget his many four-legged buddies that took him on his wonderful mountain rides.

Funeral services were held on Saturday, Oct. 11, 2014, at 11 a.m. at Webb Funeral Home, 1005 S. 800 E. in Preston.

The family would like to thank Dr. Ben-Jacob and his staff at the Cache Valley Cancer Center, the Franklin County Transitional Care Center and staff and Dr. David Beckstead and his staff as well as the many friends and family members that have helped Marvin through these last few years. Words cannot express our heart-felt thankfulness.

 LORRAINE TAYLOR 

o-ltaylor092414

Our mother and grandmother, Lorraine Povey Taylor, of Cove, Utah, passed away peacefully Sept. 12, 2014, at Sunrise Park Assisted Living in Lewiston, Utah, following a brief illness.

Lorraine, the oldest of six children, was born on June 13, 1924, in Weston, Idaho, to Arthur and Martha Fredrickson Povey. Her dad was a farmer and had wanted his first child to be a boy, but when Lorraine came along she became his helper. At the age of 12 she hoed, thinned and topped beets. She also worked in the hay by tromping the wagonloads of hay and then she drove the derrick horse to unload the hay wagons. She also helped irrigate the row crops. She learned to work hard, but also had fun and enjoyed life on the farm.

Lorraine graduated from Clifton High School in 1941 and attended Idaho State University for a few months until the beginning of World War II.

On June 29, 1942, she married Donald L. Taylor and moved to the Taylor family ranch in Stockton, Idaho. In 1944, Don was drafted into the army. They had one 18-month old toddler and were expecting their second child, so Lorraine and her son moved back to Clifton to live with her parents. Don got home from basic training just in time to take Lorraine home from the hospital after the birth of their second son. He was home ten days before reporting to Fort Ord to embark for the Philippines. After the war, Don and Lorraine lived in Clifton for two more years. In 1949 they bought a home in Preston. During the school year, they lived in Preston and returned to Stockton during the summer months. In 1957, they sold the ranch, the home in Preston and bought the farm in Cove where she has resided until the last four-and-a-half months when, because of her illness, she moved into Sunrise Park.

Lorraine was an excellent seamstress. She started making her own dresses in high school and continued to sew her own clothes and those of her children throughout the years. She will always be famous for her delicious sourdough pancakes and homemade chokecherry syrup.

In 1972, Lorraine went to work in Preston at First Bank and Trust. It was work she enjoyed and she made many friends. She retired in 1986. In 1982, Don and Lorraine purchased a vacation home in Spencer, Idaho. They had many good times at Spencer, riding their ATVs over the forest country in the summer and their snowmobiles in the winter.

Lorraine has been active in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She has served as Relief Society president, Primary president and many other callings throughout her life. Even though her husband passed away in 2005 and her eyesight created many physical limitations for her, she maintained a positive attitude and was an inspiration to everyone she associated with. She never complained and truly loved the simple things of life.

Lorraine’s oldest son, D. Brent (Cindy) Taylor, preceded her in death in 2012. She is survived by her two other sons, Lynn W. Taylor, Athol, Idaho; Curtis G. (Mary) Taylor, Heber City, Utah; and her daughter, Darlene (Jon) White, Cove, Utah; 17 grandchildren; 53 great-grandchildren; and four great-great-grandchildren.

She is also survived by her sisters, Carma (Sylvan) Morgan, Pocatello, Idaho; Dorothy (Zed) Griffiths, Ovid, Idaho; sisters-in-law, Eloise Povey, American Falls, Idaho; Lorraine Povey, Clifton, Idaho; and one brother, Eldon (Barbara) Povey, St. George, Utah. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, son, and brothers, Grant and Leonard.

We would like to say thank you to family and friends who gave of their time to visit with mother. We express our thanks and gratitude to the management and staff at Sunrise Park for the loving help and concern they showed to our mother and to us. The residents, also, at Sunrise Park became special friends. Rocky Mountain Hospice made the last of her mortal journey comfortable; we thank them, also, for their compassion and care.

Funeral services were held Saturday, Sept. 20, at noon in the Cove LDS Church, 12832 N. 1200 E., Cove, Utah. A viewing was held prior to the services from 10- 11:30 a.m. Funeral services were under the direction of Webb Funeral Home. Interment was at the Richmond Cemetery.
