     Heartfelt condolences to the families of Laura Kipp Wilson. Laura quietly left this world Saturday, June 28, 2014 at her Lewiston home. Laura's gentle spirit and thoughtful personality will be missed by her family and numerous friends. Prayers of comfort for her husband Michael Wilson, her son Lance Anderson, daughter Shelby Parks, her brother Jess and Irene Kipp of Kooskia and sisters, Elizabeth Kipp and Sandra Kipp and her step-children and grandchildren.

     Deepest condolences to the families of Joel (Utchie) Whitfield. Utch passed away Sunday, July 6 at St. Joseph Regional Medical Center with family and friends by his side. Friends described Utchie as a true friend to many; he was well known and loved by countless people of all walks of life. He was a true fan of the Idaho Vandals. Utch was the strong backbone behind many Wa-a'yas events during his employment with the Nez Perce Tribe; he went above and beyond his job duties to help and support the community and the Nez Perce Tribe. Prayers of comfort for his children, his numerous cousins, and friends that knew and loved "Utch."
