Dale A. Winslow, 78, was born to Tedford H. and Ula E. (Tucker)
Winslow at Caldwell on Nov. 28, 1925. He grew up on the family
farm south of Greenleaf. He attended Greenleaf Grade School
and graduated from Greenleaf Friends Academy in 1944. After
attending the University of Idaho, he returned home to farm
with his father.
Dale married Martha Louise Hunter Nov. 21, 1948, at Caldwell First
Baptist Church. Dale and Louise made their first home on the
Tucker home place on Highway 19 and Tucker Road. They moved to
the Winslow farm on Friends Road in July 1953, where he lived
until his death.
He saw many changes to farming and the Greenleaf community during
his life. As a young man he put up hay using horses and a
derrick and was a member of threshing crews that shared labor
to harvest many acres of wheat and corn in the Greenleaf
community. In later years he used tractors and trucks and
diversified the crops he raised to include potatoes, sugar
beets, silage corn, lettuce, peas, beans, corn and other seed
crops. He raised registered Angus and later Brahma-Angus cross
beef cattle and Holstein dairy cattle as well as row crops
until his retirement in 1987. After retirement, he enjoyed
making model farm wagons, stagecoaches, covered wagons and
buggies for competition in local county fairs and as gifts to
friends and family.
He is survived by his wife, Louise; a step-brother, Donald Fodge;
