Ora Huey, 74, of Boise, died Feb. 17, 2005, with her husband of 55 years, Donald Huey, by her side.

Her memorial service was Monday at the Cloverdale Funeral Home in Boise.

She was born in Baker on Jan. 8, 1931. She worked for the Bureau of Land Management until moving to Boise in 1967, where she continued to work for the BLM and the Forest Service. She enjoyed fishing, camping and traveling after her early retirement from the Forest Service. Until her illness, she was an avid bridge player and played several times a week with her good friend and bridge partner Helen Vanderwyk.

She will always be remembered for her love and dedication to her family.

Survivors include her husband, Donald Huey; children Wally Huey and his wife, Val, of Hillsboro, Crystal Bennett and her husband, Larry, of Portland and Bryan Huey and his wife, Traci, of Boise; four grandchildren, David, Rachel, and Diana Huey of Hillsboro and Nicholas Huey of Boise; she also had many loyal and valued friends, including her good friend, Pat Eardley, who was with her for 62 years.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Nola Hale of Baker City.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions to the American Cancer Society.
