Robert Manning Nielsen

Robert Manning Nielsen, a lifelong resident of the Paul and Rupert area, passed away surrounded by his family on the morning of Monday, September 27, 2021. “Bob” was born on November 3, 1943, to Blain Malcolm and Ida Eliza Manning Nielsen in Paul, Idaho. He was the sixth child of Blain and Ida, following his older siblings, Ronald, Coleen, Margaret, and a set of twin girls, Edith and Ethyl, and preceding his younger sister, Marilyn, and brother, Richard. As a boy, Bob was a big help to his siblings and parents on the Nielsen family farm and feedlot, but if anyone had a mischievous spirit and grin, it was Bob. Whether he was blowing out tires and radiators while racing Ron’s tractors, or conning Marilyn into licking metal mailboxes in the winter, Bob was always thinking of a prank he could play on family and friends. Bob’s hard work didn’t stop on the farm; he excelled both academically and athletically at Minidoka County High School. He was elected Senior Class President in 1961, and loved being on Spartan baseball, basketball, and football teams during his career. He especially enjoyed playing on teams with his cousin, Bill Manning, and after college, loved playing on rec league teams with Bill and his brother, Rich. Bob would talk about how when Rich was young, Bob would push and bully him to play basketball. After four years away in the Naval Academy, Bob came back to Paul to see that Rich was now much bigger and taller than Bob, eager to compete with and against Bob in multiple sports and wouldn’t be bullied and pushed up against the milk barn anymore!

Ronald was born on August 18, 1932, to Blain M and Ida E Nielsen in Paul, Idaho. It became obvious at an early age that he had a passion for horses and cattle. He talked of when he was a young boy that he would saddle up his mustang horse named Sally, and he would lope on her out North to the tracks and back. The amazing thing about it was that it was thirteen miles one way. He began working with his family on the farm and at the feedlot. He and his grandfather, Henry Manning, formed a very special bond since Ron was the first grandchild and they spent lots of time together. He always enjoyed working alongside his dad and his uncles, Howard, Lynn, Bee and Robert Manning. Back then the cattle were fed using teams of horses and wagons which had to be loaded by hand.

Obituary of Tammie Kate Walls

Tammie Kate Walls (née Reeves), age 63. One of the most genuine, giving, kind, and loving people – an angel on earth – and long-time Magic Valley resident passed away at Brookdale Assisted Living in Chubbuck, Idaho and went to be with her Jesus on Thursday, June 24, 2021. Born in Rupert, Idaho to Northside homesteaders, Phillip Wayne and Hazel Bess Reeves (née Merritt) on August 11, 1957. At birth, she was the extra surprise as she was the second born child following the birth of her twin brother Tommie. After spending 10 days in the Natal Intensive Care Unit, her family observed that she would only use her left arm and assumed she was left handed. Yet, during a doctor’s visit early on in her life, it was determined that she had cerebral palsy and the disorder was blocking the signals from her brain to her right arm, thus causing atrophy and limited mobility. Her family was informed that this physical disability would affect her for her entire life. During high school, Tammie studied one handed typewriting classes and became a certified nurse’s aide at Minico High School through a sponsored program by the College of Southern Idaho. Shortly after graduating, she married Darwin “Wally” G. Walls on August 11, 1976 at Sweetheart Manor in Burley, Idaho. Their marriage resulted in the greatest blessings of Tammie’s life, her two sons Israel and Levi Walls. Her husband’s job with the railroad kept their lives interesting and allowed her to experience new picturesque surroundings such as Smith’s Ferry and Cascade, Idaho. After their divorce, though considered disabled by the medical professionals, Tammie excelled at maintaining a home and nurturing her children. She lived in various places throughout her life within the Magic Valley, as well as out of state in Tucson, Arizona, before settling down in Rupert, Idaho. She worked various jobs throughout her life but her greatest passion (besides her children), was serving and assisting other people. Tammie was a longtime volunteer at the Helping Hands Mission with her mother Hazel Reeves, and later on in her life at the Rupert Senior Citizen Center with Penny Schell-VanAlst. As Tammie’s family grew she later became blessed by the new title given to her by her grandchildren and was endearingly dubbed, “Grammy Tammie.” Nothing gave Grammy Tammie more joy than spending time with her granddaughters and seeing the looks on their faces when she would see them opening and enjoying the gifts and goodies that she would lavish upon them as often as she could. Tammie was known for her wit, fun-loving nature, attitude, character, spunk, empathy, and aptitude for creating new sayings of special meaning to her friends and family, such as being a, “42 jobbie,” a “Bing-head,” and of course to live life in such a way as to, “make people’s eyes shine,” or express being so blessed that it would make her “eye’s shine.” Though many of us that knew her may have eye’s shining with tears of sorrow, there is still much joy and pride in carrying the wonderful memories that will continue to be cherished in our hearts and lives. Tammie, we want to thank you, “you make our eyes shine!” She is survived by her son: Israel (Becky) Walls; two grandchildren: Emery and Finleigh Walls of Inkom, Idaho, son: Levi Walls of Caldwell, Idaho; brother: Mike (Shawni) Nix of Tyler, Texas, sister: Donna (Gary) Fessenden of Paul, Idaho, sister: Brenda (Ted) Adams of Heyburn, Idaho, brother: Karis Reeves of Mission, Texas, twin brother: Tommie (Mary) Reeves of Rupert, Idaho, brother: Mark (Shelly) Reeves of Rupert, Idaho. She was preceded in death by her parents: Wayne (Marlene) Reeves, Hazel Reeves, brother: Phillip Reeves, three nephews: Rusty Dean, Dusty Adams, and Joshua Adams. On Thursday, July 1, 2021 the viewing ceremony will commence at 10:00 a.m., funeral service at 11:00 a.m. at First Christian Praise Chapel 1110 8th Street Rupert, Idaho. Interment will follow at the Paul Cemetery. Luncheon will be held at Minidoka County Senior Center 702 11th Street Rupert, Idaho promptly after the services are concluded. Arrangements are under the direction of Rosenau Funeral Home.

Fred Huggins
The body of Fred Huggins, who died on Thursday at his ranch near Lenox on the south fork of the Boise river, some 50 miles from Boise, was brought to Boise Friday night by his father-in-law, T. E. Montrose, who arrived shortly before midnight. The remains were taken to the undertaking parlors of Schreiber & Sidenfaden, where the funeral will be held at 3 o’clock this afternoon.

Mr. Huggins, who was 33 years of age, had not been feeling well for several days. He was suffering from the effects of an old operation for appendicitis. A few days ago a physician was called but he continued to grow worse until death came at 3 o’clock on Thursday afternoon.

Lyman Huggins of Minidoka, father of the deceased, who came to Boise when he heard of his son’s illness, started for his son’s farm on Friday afternoon but met Mr. and Mrs. Montrose on the road and returned with them. “Lyme,” as he is popularly called, is one of the best hotel men in southern Idaho. His son was well known in Boise, where he lived last year and managed the Edmont house at 118 ½ South Ninth street with his mother. He had been on his farm at Lenox for several months.
