While at my folks' yesterday I read this obituary they'd clipped. They didn't know her, but thought her obituary was the best thing ever. I agree. Bless Ida Mae's heart. Hope the fishin' is good up there.

Mom Gone Fishing Forever
Mom went fishing forever. She caught the big one January 5th in the wee hours in bed. It was so big it reeled her into fishing heaven. She is survived by 1 former husband, all 4 children, all 9 grandchildren, and all 5 great-grandchildren.
My mom was raised in Orem, Utah and graduated from Orem High in 1954. Her parents were Don and Belva Loveridge, her grandfather was Orrin Porter Rockwell Jr., her great-grandfather was Patriarch Orrin Porter Rockwell Sr. She moved to St. Anthony, Idaho for better fishing and now can be found next to Heaven's Fish Lake by the shore, gutting the big one, with a beer in her hand shouting, "Obama, that's my kind of President."
Funeral services will be held Friday, January 9, 2009 at 1:00 p.m. at Bert Flam Mortuary in St. Anthony, Idaho.
