Ralph's eldest son, Marlowe, and Jack's eldest son, Jon, joined them in the 1970's, after completing their schooling at San Francisco Mortuary College. In 1991 Marlowe left to work in Indiana and Jack's son-in-law, Clay Jensen, joined us until early 2005.
In 2002, an additional facility was opened on the east side of Idaho Falls. Construction was completed at 963 South Ammon Road that August and it has been very helpful to have a location more convenient for those in Ammon, Iona, Shelton, Lincoln, Milo, Ririe, Swan Valley, and other areas.
Jack Jr., passed away July 4, 2005, and Ralph passed away January 12, 2010. Both are greatly missed.
In May 2006, Jon's eldest son, Brian, graduated from the mortuary sciences program at Mesa Community College in Arizona and returned to Idaho Falls to rejoin us in carrying on the family tradition of funeral service.
Changes come about - often as a natural and expected part of life (as we well know), but the tradition of compassion and caring that we have nurtured at Wood Funeral Home will always be the same.
