Cline M. Dahle passed away June 25, 2015, at age 80 of medical complications due to old age. Born in Logan, Utah, July 21, 1934, to J. Merland and Maurine Fife Dahle, Cline grew up on a farm in Weston, Idaho. He always loved cars, machines and hunting pheasants with his dog, Snip. At age 20, he served a two-and-a-half-year LDS mission to Norway, the country from which his great-grandfather had immigrated.

On Oct. 9, 1958, Cline married Marsha Smith in the Logan LDS Temple, and they moved to Salt Lake City, Utah, to begin their family and start a business. Cline began work at the Utoco gas station on 27th East and 40th South. Within two years, he bought the station and began selling used cars from the property. By 1967, he and Marsha had obtained land at 5500 S. State Street, founded Cline’s Auto Sales, and obtained a BMW franchise and later at various times SAAB, Peugeot, GMC, Buick, Yugo, Alfa-Romero, Fiat, Nissan, Infiniti and Mazda franchises.

Cline loved being a new-car dealer and always took great pride that a kid from a small town in southern Idaho could achieve his dream through hard work, discipline, humor and loyalty. He and his brother, Brent, partnered in the late ‘70s to introduce Toyota, Mazda, Honda, Subaru and Fiat franchises to Logan, Utah. He sold his Nissan and Infiniti franchises to son, Tim, in 1989 and Mazda franchise to son, Dennis, in 1993.

One who struggled his whole life with reading, Cline joked that he wasn’t much of a speller, but he could count. To encourage others who might face educational obstacles, in 2007 Cline and his brother, Larry, founded the West Side Endowment for Educational Excellence to provide Weston, Idaho, students tuition assistance to take college-level classes while still in high school. Cline spoke proudly and consistently of this legacy and also of the scholarship he made available to students at Southern Utah University whose grades weren’t quite high enough to qualify for other scholarships.

Cline’s five brothers and sisters, Joy (Phill), Larry (Joan), Ellen (Brent), Sheila (Richard), and Brent (Shelley), have been his staunch supporters, friends, confidantes and cheerleaders. His whole life, they have worried about him, laughed with him, cried with him, traveled with, joked with and admired him. We, his children, honor their life-long devotion. We also thank Paul Barnard for his many years of service and friendship and adore Sharon Coleman who kept Dad company and out of trouble for many years when he wintered in Palm Springs.

Cline loved a good joke, a spotless car, his dog, Beau, looking at property, shooting the breeze with Tim at the dealership, car rides with Larry and stale licorice. A consummate entrepreneur, Dad pondered potential options and possibilities and imagined where the future was headed. Family and friends were amazed at, amused by, and occasionally horrified by the schemes he constantly hatched. He had great respect and empathy for the common men and women who grit out a living under challenging circumstances and with little recognition.

He is survived by his son, Tim (MaryLynn); daughter, Cindy; son, Dennis; and grandchildren, Lindsay (Vic), Steven (Laura), Marcus (Darya), Elsa and Nils; five great-grandchildren, five siblings and their spouses, and numerous nephews and nieces. Cline and Marsha divorced in 1986. He was briefly married to Carolyn Lyman in 1987-88. He married Jane Osborn in 1998.

Friends and family are invited to attend a memorial celebration Friday, July 17, 2015, at 7 p.m. at The Cottonwood Club, 1780 E. Lakewood Dr., Holladay, Utah.

Just five years short of a century, beloved Verna Jane Rice Wood passed on to the next phase of her life on Tuesday, June 9, 2015, having graduated summa cum laude from mortality, while mourned and cheered by a myriad of friends and family on both sides of the veil.

Born Feb 1, 1920, in Farmington, Utah, to Ira Quince and Myra Winegar Rice just two years after the close of WWI, then moving with her family to Superior, Wyo., where Quince was superintendent of coal mines, then moving again when financial trouble hit the country, just in time to purchase a herd of cattle and farm in Clifton, Idaho, and settling in only to have their herd destroyed by Baines disease.

But wait, there’s more! Then came the Great Depression followed by WWII followed by inflation. Only Mother’s sense of humor and deep compassion helped her endure. She married Jack J Wood in Oct 15, 1937, and then Dad went into the navy. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Logan LDS Temple.

Jack and Jane are the parents of seven children: Donald (Stana) Wood, Robert (Katherine) Wood, Tom (Julie) Wood, Myra (Ken) Peterson, Deb (Dave) Nielsen, William “Sput” (Roze) Wood, and David (Janet) Wood.

There are well over a hundred descendants in the family.

Together, Mom and Dad purchased and operated “The Garage” and later Clifton Merc from Orson Kofoed and finally built the Twin Lakes Merc as well as being postmaster. Everyone who came through the store left uplifted and in good humor because of them.

Jack passed away May 21, 1981, a long wait for both of them. All of Jane’s siblings have died and all of Jack’s except Earl Wood, living in St. George, Utah. Jane was preceded in death by her husband, Jack; also three granddaughters, Cody and Katie Perucca— twins, and Krista Cowley.

Jack and Jane were active church members serving in ward and stake capacities, Mother in the Relief Society and Young Women auxiliaries, and involved in many ward plays over the years. She was also an avid bowler in a league even into her early 80’s. After Dad’s passing, Mother served many years doing French extraction in Preston and additional years as an ordinance worker in the St. George LDS Temple.

Mother’s keen intellect and extraordinary wit and charm remain unsurpassed even through her cancer treatments and surgeries. She always felt compelled to treat animals and birds with the same kindness as the human family. Her generosity knew no bounds. She was no stranger to poverty, sadness and loneliness.

Special appreciation is given to her many friends, family, and church members who assisted her.

Funeral services were held on Saturday, June 13, 2015, at noon in the Clifton Second Ward Chapel with Bishop Clark Cox conducting. Friends called Friday from 6-8 p.m. at Webb Funeral Home, 1005 S. 800 E., Preston, Idaho, and Saturday from 10:30- 11:30 a.m. at the church. Interment was in the Clifton Cemetery. Memories and condolences may be shared with the family at www. webbmortuary.com

Final note to children from Mother: “About your inheritance… being of sound mind and body, I spent it all.”

Reed was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He held many callings in the church, including Sunday School Superintendent, ward clerk, financial clerk, MIA Superintendent, Elder’s Quorum President, Seventies President, Sunday school teacher and was a faithful home teacher. Reed and Gloria were dance directors in their ward for over 15 years, helping many youth to enjoy dancing. They loved going to the weekly dances that were held throughout the valley. In his later years, he kept score for the youth basketball games several seasons.

He and his wife enjoyed many years as ordinance workers at the Logan LDS Temple, serving two days a week faithfully until December 2012. Beginning in 1985, they served at the LDS Temple during the winter months when Reed was not working for the forest service. After retirement, they served year around.

Death Notice:


Reed P. Jensen, 93, passed away peacefully on Monday, June 8, 2015, at the Heritage Home in Preston, Idaho. A full obituary will appear in a future edition of the paper. Arrangements are under the direction of Webb Funeral Home in Preston.




Keilani Lisa Crawford was born into this world on Nov. 21, 2014, in Salt Lake City, Utah, and born into Eternity on June 4, 2015, after a short, yet remarkable life. Her sweet spirit was welcomed into this world by Ira and Nichole Crawford, and their children, Brayden, Emilie, Jarin and Kamden with great love and anticipation.

Keilani was born with a ‘broken heart’ that worked harder in her short life than most do in a full lifetime. It was an honor and privilege to share so many special moments with her in this life. Her eyes could capture your heart in an instant. She was full of courage. She endured her earthly trials with grace and determination that few could match. Ironically, it wasn’t her heart, nor her strong will, that gave out in the end, but rather her lungs.

In the six months of her short life she touched so many lives, an amazing feat for someone who never spoke a word. With a ‘broken heart’ she gave enough love to fill an ocean. With her bright eyes she could lighten up the darkest places.

We express our love and gratitude to our dear family and friends, including the doctors, nurses, and staff at Primary Children’s hospital, as well as the staff at the Ronald McDonald house in Salt Lake City, for the prayers, donations, and kindness given to Keilani and our family. Much more than we deserve and could ever repay. Most of all, we express thanks to our Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ for allowing us to be blessed by this sweet pea. Our loss is heaven’s gain. We look forward to our family reunion in the temple and in the Eternities.

She is survived by her parents, brothers, and sister, grandparents, Kent and Kathy Moser, Ron Crawford, Margaret Smith; and great-grandmother Elizabeth Smith. Also many aunts, uncles, and cousins who love her dearly.

Funeral services will be held Thursday June 11, 2015, in the Smithfield 22nd Ward chapel, 640 N. 200 E. in Smithfield. A viewing will be held Wednesday from 6-8 p.m. at the church and Thursday from 9:30- 10:30 a.m. also at the church. Arrangements are under the direction of Webb Funeral Home in Preston.

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the Allred family in the passing of Delores. Such fond memories and close associations with all the family when they were our neighbors in Burley 11th ward. The neighborhood hasn’t been the same since. Really missed them when they moved to Preston. We know she is in a better place now and that we will all be able to see her and other family members again. What a comfort. Your parents are trully great examples to all of us as well as to all ther family and friends. May our Heavenly Father bless all of you in this hour of need.
    All our love, The Clegg family, Leon and Dori

    I hear that Dr. Mike Teets died who was a principal in the Preston County Schools. I send my condolences as I was a custodian who worked with him in a couple of the schools in Preston County Schools. May God rest you in peace, Mike. Your friend, Gary Mitchell
