Long time Boise resident Fern L. Carpenter passed Saturday, November 20, 2010 after a long and interesting life.

Fern was born April 28th, 1916 in Encampment, Wyoming, daughter of Carl and Maude Wilford of the Jones-Wilford ranch near Saratoga, homesteaded by pioneer Henry Jones. Fern enjoyed horseback riding, skiing and skating, hunting, fishing, and outdoor activities growing up.

She traveled to school in a horse and buggy to a country school until graduation from high school in Saratoga where she met her husband to be, Harold E. Carpenter and married him in 1938. Fern, Harold & first son, Phillip E. came to Boise in 1945 when Harold went to work for Quinn Bros. & Robbins Construction Co.
