Obituaries for June 3, 2010
Judith Gardner, 69, Grangemont
She was very active in many clubs around Orofino area including dog and horse 4H, and the Grangemont Homemakers. Later in life she discovered the internet and made hundreds of online friends and kept track of family on her computer, as we all know she never met a stranger.
She is survived by her husband of almost 50 years Virgil; two sons, David of Scio, OR, Danny and Angel Gardner of Deary; four grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren, Teri Gardner, her son Caden Barrett, Christina Gardner, her daughter Kiera Adams, Joshua Gardner, and step-granddaughter Ashley Rodgers; sister, Elaine McLaughlin of Montana; brother-in-law Bill Gardner of Montana, sister-in-law Lavina Gardner Jones of Oregon, and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents.
She touched may lives in her journey here on earth and will be missed by all that new her.
Cremation has already occurred and a celebration of life, originally scheduled for July 17, will now be held July 17 at Orofino City Park at 12 noon. The event will be a potluck dinner, and the family encourages everyone to bring pictures and stories to share.

Clifford Hulin, 76, Orofino
Hulin of Orofino, died
After high school, he served in the U.S. Navy during the Korean Conflict. He married Toni Landers, moved to the mountainous northwest, and had two children, Kelli and Pat.
In later years he married Carrie Dolly Smith of Orofino where they remained until his death.
Coming from generations of flatland farmers, it seems improbable that Clifford would end up in the mountains, but he spent the greater part of his adult life there working in the lumber business. He loved the country, the wildlife, and his garden. He took great pride in his family and was always available to lend a helping hand to neighbors and friends.
Clifford was preceded in death by his parents and older siblings, Houston, Donald, Bonnie, Mack and Billy.
He is survived by his wife Dolly, his children Pat and Kelli, three grandsons, Patrick, Shane and Blake, one great grandson Wyatt, sisters Mavis and Marie, brother Coy and many nieces and nephews.
He is rewarded by being missed and loved by so many who knew him.
The family asks,
in lieu of flowers, that donations be made to the Lance Armstrong
