Valdie Burkholder

After a few days of glorious clarity during which she visited and talked with family and friends, contemplated new jewelry and was thinking about renewing her newspaper subscriptions for three more years, Valdie Burkholder, 95, Bonners Ferry, died peacefully in her sleep at home last night.

Family is making arrangements for a memorial service for she and her beloved son, Rockey, to be held in the future. A full obituary is pending.
