Clarence Roberts

     Clarence Harold Roberts, 86, of Nampa, went to be with the Lord on Monday, August 21, 1995, at a Nampa nursing home, after a battle with Parkinsons Disease.  Graveside funeral services will be conducted at 3 p.m. on Thursday, August 24, 1995, at the Hillcrest Memorial Gardens.  Rev. K. D. Cole of the Deer Flat Free Methodist Church will officiate.  Friends are asked to meet at the cemetery.  Services are under the direction of the Alsip Funeral Chapel, Nampa.
    Clarence was born on May 13, 1909, at Edison, Nebraska, the 13th child of Charles and Julia Roberts.  He attended a rural elementary school in Nebraska.  After his father died, he took over the farm.  Clarence married Edna Dora Knuth on March 1, 1931.  In 1936 they moved to Missouri, later moving to Oregon. In 1951, he moved his family to Nampa.  Clarence held many occupations in his lifetime, including: farming, laborer at the P.F.E. Shops, Edmarks, Honstead Motors, maintenance at Mercy Medical Center, and then retiring in 1971.
    Clarence was an avid rock hound. He made beautiful pieces of jewelry, as well as clocks, until his illness forced him to quit.  He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather.  His laughter will be remembered always.  God put a new star in heaven this day.
    Clarence is survived by his wife, Edna of Nampa; 4 daughters, Marjorie Arnold, Caldwell, Henrietta (Mrs. Johnny) Bernardo, Draper, Utah, Claramae (Mrs. Ken) Akiyama, West Jordan, Utah, Barbara (Mrs. Jim) Clark, Tahuya, Washington; 12 grandchildren; 18 great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
    He was preceded in death by his parents, 6 brothers, 6 sisters, a son-in-law, John Arnold, and a grandson, Ronald Kawano.
    Friends may call at the Alsip Funeral Chapel today until 9 p.m.
    The family suggests memorial contributions to the Parkinsons Disease Foundation, St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center, 1055 N. Curtis Rd., Boise, Idaho 83706.
