2 I The Lovell Chronicle I January 16, 2014 Elwood Despain Emmett April 6, 1928 - Jan. 13, 2014 Beloved father, grand- father and brother, El- wood Despain Emmett, 85, died on Jan. 13, 2014, at his home in Lovell, after a short but brave battle with cancer. Elwood was born April 6, 1928, in Lovell, the son of Paul Silas and Julia Eva Despain Emmett. Elwood was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, where he served in many callings and touched the lives of many people. He served as a teacher in the Primary, Seventy's Group Leader, Stake Mis- sionary and Cubmaster. He especially loved serving in the Billings, Montana Temple, where he served from 2002 through 2013. On July 10, 1952, El- wood married his sweet- heart, Clara May Jensen, of Cowley. They were married in the Idaho Falls Temple. Early in their marriage, he worked for the Johnson Saw Mill on the Big Horn Mountains. Later in the spring of 1957, he began working for Great Western Sugar Company/Western Sugar Company, where he later retired in the spring of 1994. He worked year round and on the sugar end during campaign. Elwood was a lifelong Democrat and once ran for the State Senate on the Democratic Party ticket. Elwood was an avid rock hound. He loved gar- dening, and his favor- ite rose was Betty Prior. He also loved to experi- ment in science as he was always curious about ev- erything and was always seeking knowledge and un- derstanding. He was a 4-H leader. Elwood was preceded in death by his wife Clara May Jensen Emmett; his infant son Elwood Dale Emmett; his parents, Paul Silas and Julia Eva De- spain Emmett; his two in- fant sisters; an adult sis- ter, Nina Emmett Godfrey of Salt Lake City; and son- in-law Frank Barrus. He is survived by his children, Allen J. Emmett (Barbara) of Stockton, Ca- lif., Alvin Scott Emmett (Elaine) of Lovell, Ter- ry Lee Emmett (Rita) of Cheyenne, Sheryl Emmett Goodrich of Farmington, Utah, Barbara Emmett Barrus of Powell and Gary Curtis Emmett (Brenda) of Lovell. He is also survived by his brother Norald Si- Ins Emmett (May) of Lovell and his sister Leta Emmett Gifford (Tex) of American Fork, Utah. Elwood is also survived by 25 grandchil- dren and 38 great-grand- children, with two more ex- pected later this year. Funeral services will be held Saturday, Jan. 18, 2014, at 10 a.m. at the LDS Stake Center in Lovell. A viewing will be held Fri- day, Jan. 17, from 1 to 4 p.m. at Haskell Funeral Home.

' Two 'years ago, due to Louis Grant Howe March 10, 1924 - Jan. 10, 2014 Louis Grant Howe, 89, died on Friday, Jan. 10, 2014, at the Eagle Cliff Nursing Home in Billings. He was born on March 10, 1924, in Kane. This would have been his 67th wed- ding anniversary; however, his wife, Lora Mae Margret (Wagner) Howe, died 12 days earlier. He and Lora Mae were married on Jan. 10, 1947, in Billings. Lou's early years were spent in Kane, where he enjoyed the country life to the fullest. His desire to get out and discover the world started early when he joined the Army at age 16. Once the Army found out his true age he was re- leased but only after spend- ing two weeks on KP. After a couple of years working odd jobs, he went to work for the railroad out of Greybull. During one of his stops in Frannie, he met Lora Mae. Together, they raised four children. After the railroad, Lou went to work for Chica- go Bridge and Iron, where he traveled throughout the county and once to Guam. He settled in Billings where he worked for Car- ter Oil Refinery (Exxon) for 10 years. Then, he helped establish the Pipefitters Union Local No. 30, where he was president for sever- al years. While with the union, he usually worked locally but at times had to travel the county to seek work- mg opportunities. He set- tled in Colstrip when the power units were being built and lived in the area for more than 10 years. He retired from the union but could not help but stay ac- tive when he and Lora Mae purchased the Joliet Motel. After 10 years they sold the motel and moved to Bill- ings to enjoy their family failing health, he and Lora Mae moved to the Eagle Cliff Nursing Home in Bill- ings, where they lived to- gether in the same room until Lora Mae's death just two weeks ago. They leave behind many friends and family but will be wel- comed by many more that have passed before them. Lou was preceded in death by his wife, Lora Mae (Wagner) Howe; his parents, William and Lita (Grant) Howe; brothers Theodore Howe and Ed- ward (Pauline) Howe; and sisters Elsie (Cecil) Snell and Lulu Belle Howe. Survivors include his children, Sandra Black- burn of Astoria, Ore., Steve of Park City, Mont., Mar- Vin (Susan) of Glendive, Mont., and Gary (Sheila) of Billings; his brother Riley (Bessie) of Moab, Utah, and sister Lucy (Rufus) Snell of Billings; five grandchil- dren, (including Stepha- nie (James) Cox, who was like a daughter, and six great-grandchildren. He is also survived by several in- laws, nieces and nephews. Funeral services will be at 11 a.m. on Fri- day, Jan. 17, at the LDS Church in Lovell. Burial will take place immediate- ly thereafter at the Denver Cemetery. Obituaries Please submit obituaries to us via email: Icnews@tctwest.net; fax:307-548-2218; or bring to our office at 234 E.
