Sally grew up in Weiser and graduated from Weiser High School in 1965. She then attended business school in Spokane, Wash., later moving to Seattle to work for Boeing. While in Seattle she met and-mar- ried Ron Bower whose family lived in Midvale, Idaho. Sally and Ron eventually returned to the -Obituaries - Ontario area where their son Christopher was born and they later divorced. Sally moved back to Weiser to the house that she had grown up in to raise her young son with the help of her parents and the place she would call home for the next 40 years. She was employed in several jobs in Weiser throughout the years in- eluding Washington Coun- ty Weed Control and was currently employed at the Washington County Treas- urers' office. Sally was a selfless daughter, sister, mother, grandmother and friend. She loved working in her beautiful yard in her flow- erbeds and garden. She loved animals and had taken care of many cats, who just seem to show up at her house needing help. Sally's joy was her grand- children and she spent her work week counting down to her weekend, when she would go to visit them and her oldest grandson would go home with her for the weekend on many occa- sions. She attended all of their school programs, sporting events and was there for them with kind words and love. She was preceded in death by her parents. Sally is survived by her son and his wife, Christopher and Tammie Bower, plus her three pre- cious grandchildren who thought the world of her and will greatly miss her. She is also survived by a sister, Janice Lunger. The family would like to thank all of Sally's neighbors and friends for their support during this difficult time.

Jaekie Ann Whitlatch 1963-2013 Jackie Ann Iannello Whitlatch, 50, was called to heaven Nov. 9, 2013 doing what she truly loved, rid- ing her motorcycle. Jackie started her earthly journey July 2, 1963 in Tacoma, Wash., born to Angelo and Anita Iannello. She spent her childhood school days in and around the Tacoma area where she leaves behind many, whom she loved very dearly, es- pecially her best friend Stacy Door Garland. She and Casey Cromwell were blessed with the birth of their beautiful daugh- ter, Lacey Lynn on Nov. 6, 1993. A few years later she met Vince Bonzelet through mutual friends and they were married. They longed to get out of the hustle and bustle of big city life and eventually moved to Cambridge to be closer to Vince's family.

She was a member of the Cambridge Volunteer Fire Department, she was an EMT, and she was also the coordinator for the Cam- bridge Volunteer Ambu- lance. Jackie was a devout Catholic and was dedicated to God, which was illus- trated by her many poems, writings, and encourage- ments that she shared with people throughout her life- time. It didn't matter who you were or what your need was, she was always willing to listen and spread the sunshine of God's love by her actions, words, and ever-present smile. On April 27, 2013, Jack- ie entered into a new mar- riage with her soulmate, Caryl Whitlatch. Although they were married for only a short time, their relation- ship was filled with love, laughter, and adventure. Jackie was very happy to be able to have her daugh- ter, Lacey, move back home with her early this fall. This was a true bless- ing from God that they had this special time together. She is survived by her husband Caryl Whit- latch (Cambridge, Idaho), daughter Lacey Cromwell (Cambridge, Idaho), broth- er Dale Iannello (Tacoma, Wash.), and many other extended family members. She was preceded in death by her loving parents An- gelo and Anita Iannello. A memorial service was held Saturday, Nov. 16, at the Cambridge High School gymnasium at 2 p.m.
