Allen Kiefer Jr.
10/1/1967 - 4/23/2020
Allen James Kiefer Jr., 52, of Niles, passed away at his home on Thursday, April 23, 2020.
Allen was born on October 1, 1967, to Allen Kiefer Sr. and Wilma Torrence in Cherry Point, North Carolina.
After graduating from high school, Allen proudly served his country as a member of the Navy. He spent his working years taking care of the elderly and handicap.
Allen loved his time in the Navy. He enjoyed being on the water, spending time fishing. He had a passion for cars, even making model cars. He loved Dodge, and had never seen a Ford that he liked. He loved camping and spending time outdoors. He was friendly, and would give the shirt off of his back to help a neighbor, something he actually did once. He taught CPR and enjoyed helping others. But what Allen loved most was spending time with his family.
He is preceded in death by his father, Allen Kiefer Sr; and his paternal grandparents, Shirley and Richard Kiefer.
Allen will be remembered by his wife, Roxie; children, Robert (Rebecca) Wickizer Jr. of Niles, and Sean (Dana Haase) Platz of Niles; grandchildren, Tasha Sharrer, Amanda Sharrer, Dustin Wickizer, Joey Wickizer, and Miranda Platz; seven other grandchildren; great-grandchildren, Jaliyah Townsend, Jeremiah Sharrer, Zoey Sharrer, and baby Wickizer on the way; his mother, Wilma; siblings, Robert Kiefer, David Kiefer, Ernie Kiefer, and Cora Hammond, all of Pensacola, Florida; Sister-in-law, Sue Anderson of Niles; and many extended family members and close friends.
Allen will be laid to rest next to his father in Barrancas National Cemetery in Pensacola, Florida. Full military honors will be rendered at that time.

**UPDATE**
If you are reading this, I want to thank you for visiting this website again. You already know about the tough decision I had to make a week ago. Very soon after that was the second toughest decision I had to make and that was to ask for help.

The funeral home set up the fundraising on my behalf. When I first saw the suggested goal amount I felt extremely uncomfortable and thought it was not even feasible. With so many people going through difficult financial times, I thought it to be a lot to ask this of people.
I put my pride aside and knew I would be extremely grateful even getting a fraction of that goal. With your generosity and kind donations of others, we surpassed the goal. As a result, Dads ass/ashes will be going into a “fancy” urn much sooner than later.

My emotions were up and down all week and my thoughts all over the place thinking of the generosity of our friends, family, and anonymous donors. It was so humbling. It reminded me of a conversation I have with my kids everytime we’re stuck at a red light for a funeral procession. If it is a long procession, I tell them that person must of been well-known or well- loved. If it was only one or two cars, I’d say how sad that person died alone.
Now, I know there could be many reasons for such a small amount of cars,but the reality is, I know the size of the procession means nothing on how a person was loved.

With times being the way they are right now, I thought about my dad and how he would not have a procession, and it left me feeling unsettled.

After a few days I started to focus on the “shares” that the funding site keeps a tally of. As I’m writing this, it’s close to 1,500 shares. In my mind that’s a 1,500 car procession and a traffic jam any son would be proud of.
I was humbled by your comments. I read them multiple times and each time your words brought comfort to me and my family. Your kindness and generosity mean more then you can know.

I hope this post is shared the same way that it original was and reaches donors, anonymous donors, and friends-of-a-friend. Know that I’m extremely thankful, grateful and overwhelmed with your generosity, love, and support.

With a warm heart
I thank you!

Michael Jr
Proud son of Michael Sr.

On 4/20/2020 my sister and I had to do the hardest thing in our lives. We had to make the decision to pull our father off the ventilator he was on due to complications of Covid-19. Certainly, he had other health conditions that didn’t help matters, but that didn’t make our task any easier. As we watched him and the monitor, (which at the time felt like a lifetime) it only took between 60-90 seconds before he finally passed. It was then that we knew we made the best decision for him. He wouldn’t want to live life being kept alive by a complex machine.

Unlike that complex machine, our father was a simple man. Dad never needed anything “fancy”. He was happy getting a 5 year old hand-me-down tv, because it replaced the 15 year old one he got 10 years ago. He was genuinely happy and excited for anyone who got anything new or what he’d considered nice, especially for his kids and grandkids. I believe if everyone in the world were happy with the simple things it would be a better place.

Even though my dad was simple, he was also a very proud person. He would be the last person to ask for anything. During the last years of his life while his health was declining, he hated to go to the hospitals and have the staff take care of him. My dad leaned on my sister, Christine, who took care of him for over the last decade. They had a special bond. Don’t get me wrong, they had their moments of arguments, but that’s expected of anyone living together. She took care of him with love for many years and I never heard her complain. For that I want to thank her from the bottom of my heart.

Unfortunately, pride is a trait inherited from my dad. I too, have difficulty asking or accepting help from people. Since my dad was a simple man he lived day-by-day and never planned on the future, nor had the means too. With that said , my sister and I are left with the job of providing for his end of life costs.
Now is the time to swallow my pride. I learned in a short period after my dad’s death that even a simple funeral is more then I expected. I am asking for your support. No donation is too small. As they say, every dollar will help.
If you spent the time and read this to the end I want to thank you.

3/7/1941 - 4/10/2020
Rosalie May Hottel, age 79, passed away on Friday, April 10th, 2020, at Portneuf Medical Center after suffering from a stroke.
Rosalie was born in Boise, Idaho at the Salvation Army Home on March 7th, 1941, from then on, she was a spitfire. She once climbed a billboard with quite a crowd gathering to see her; of course she had a spanking waiting for her at the bottom. She graduated from Pocatello High School and went on to marry William Robert Hottel in the Salt Lake Temple on August 18, 1961. Together they had five children.
Once her children were of school age, she became a lunch lady so she could be close to them. She was a beloved grandmother and great grandmother who cherished family time. Diet Pepsi, garage sales, camping, fudge, cats, bowling, and photo albums were some of her favorite things. If you knew her, you knew of her infamous water bottle full of diet Pepsi with a T-shirt koozie on it that was always by her side. One of her most beloved jobs was at Idaho State University. Door number three was her magic number and she always played jokes on anyone who would enter an event through her door.
Rosalie is survived by her children, Lori Ann Averett, Pocatello, Idaho; Robby (Sandra) Hottel, Utah; Brian “Bubba” (Teresa) Hottel, Pocatello, Idaho; Camille Elaine Kennedy, Pocatello, Idaho; and Ginger Lee Powers, Boise, Idaho; her siblings, Steve (Debby) Szymanski, Pocatello, Idaho; Scott (Dalene) Szymanski, Riverside, Idaho; John(Kristy) Szymanski, Junction City, Oregon; Lois Guardipee, Pocatello, Idaho; Marilyn Rigby, Everett, Washington; Marlene (Rick) Goddard, Pocatello, Idaho; Richard Szymanski, Fort Smith, Arkansas; Buffy (Cliff) Gann, Kuna, Idaho; Beloved by many, Rosalie, a mom, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend, will be greatly missed.
A celebration of her life will be held at a later date, when the weather improves and the ability to gather as friends and family becomes possible once again. A walk-by viewing will be held from 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM at Wilks Funeral Home, 211 W. Chubbuck Road, (there will be signs directing how to access the area dedicated for that opportunity).
Memories and condolences may be shared with her family online at wilksfuneralhome.com. Her request was for memorial contributions to be made in her name at Wilks Funeral Home, 211 W.
