      Obituary for Bernice Tarbert

      Bernice Irma Tarbert, age 79, passed away Saturday, Sept. 12, 2009, at Clarkston Care Center.

      Bernice was born Sept. 2, 1930, at Scotia, Wash., the youngest of three children of John P. and Marie Kraeber Kress. She graduated from Newport (Wash.) High School and married Floyd L. Tarbert on Sept. 23, 1951. The family lived in Ione, Wash., until moving to Clarkston in the fall of 1965.

      Bernice was a devoted wife, homemaker, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Floyd passed away Sept. 20, 2002.

      Bernice was active for many years as a charter member with the Hells Canyon Eagles Auxiliary No. 3936, belonged to the Women of the Moose and worked with the Asotin County Election Board. She was an avid gardener and eco-friendly before it became popular. Floyd and Bernice were featured in the March 1994 issue of Organic Gardening for their gardening techniques.

      Bernice was preceded in death by her husband, Floyd; her sister, Twyla Spinner; and grandson Ryan Johnson.

      Bernice is survived by a brother, Robert and Jean Kress of Scotia; daughters Trudie and Biff Johnson of Stites and Vicky and Doug Iverson of Warrenton, Ore.; 13 grandchildren; 15 great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.

      There will be no formal services conducted. Instead, a private interment of ashes will be conducted by the immediate family.

      A celebration of life luncheon will be shared at 1 p.m. next Wednesday at the Fraternal Order of the Eagles, 505 Maple St., Clarkston.

      The family suggests memorial gifts to cancer research organizations of your choice.
