Alta Faye Wunder Fales, 71, of Payette, passed away peacefully Saturday, June 28, 2008, at Holy Rosary Medical Center surrounded by her family. A celebration of Life will be at 1 p.m., Saturday, July 5, 2008, at the Payette Christian Church with Rev. Ralph Pearson officiating. Cremation and services are under the direction of Shaffer-Jensen Memory Chapel, Payette. Condolences may be made to the family at

Alta was born August 6, 1936, in Baker City, Oregon, to Clive and Nina (Payton) Wunder. She lived at various mining towns in Baker County until her family moved to Baker City when she was 6 years old, where she grew into a vivacious and adventurous young woman who met and fell blissfully in love with her high school sweetheart, David Fales. Alta and David were married April 7, 1952, and soon had four little bundles of joy to feed and take care of. After moving several times over the next several years, Alta and David settled their little family in Payette in 1962.

Alta was a stay at home mom who loved her kids and loved her role as chauffer, guidance counselor, disciplinarian, nurse, teacher, waitress, and "chief cook and bottle washer" for a busy, growing family. She took an active role in PTA and other school activities and in essence grew up with her kids. Alta was the ultimate sports mom ?" she went to countless games of baseball, basketball, football and track. Her kids always knew she would be there to support them and cheer them on. And if she wasn’t at some sort of sports game that the kids were involved in then the chances were that the kids and their friends were all playing at home in their yard. The Fales house became a popular place to have fun at and everyone liked to come hang out there, sit around the kitchen table and talk with "Mom Fales." She had the gift of hospitality and everyone always felt comfortable in her home. Everyone knew too, that when they came around that corner on Sixth Street that Alta would be there looking out the kitchen window and would wave at them if they would honk their horn ?- a tradition that continues for young and old passers by alike to this day.

She spent many years participating on a Women’s Bowling League and thoroughly enjoyed the camaraderie of her teammates. She traveled to several western states while bowling in different regional and state bowling tournaments. Alta also loved books and was an avid reader. She was a prolific gardener with a monstrous green thumb and growing flowers and vegetables was her forte. She could tell you the name of most any flower. Her yard was also known for one of the best places to see beautiful roses, gladiolas, iris, peonies, pansies, plus a vast array of other perennials and annuals. She was very fond of her Magnolia trees and though some thought it would be impossible, she was even able to get them to thrive here. Her abundant crops of tomatoes, green beans, zucchini, carrots, beets, cucumbers, and a variety of other vegetables were always canned, served up fresh right out of the garden or given away to family, friends and neighbors. Alta enjoyed camping and outings with special friends and family. She delighted in going berry picking and in making some of the most delicious jams, jellies, and huckleberry pancakes around.

Alta’s love of family spilled over from her own children to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and going to Grandma’s was always a special treat. And there was nothing that Alta liked better than having large family gatherings with everyone home together around the kitchen table. ?- All of us will deeply miss the woman that kept us together ?- that held us close ?- in her arms and in her heart. You will forever be in our hearts.

Alta is survived by her loving and steadfast husband of 56 years, David Fales of Payette; sons, Ron Fales and Janet of Eagle River, Alaska, Russell Fales and Tammy of Portland, Oregon, and Randy Fales, Payette; daughter, Rhonda Johnson and Ken of Payette; nine grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; sister Lela Bell and Harold of Baker City, Ore.; three nieces; and cousin, Mildred Wasson of Oregon City, Oregon

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting memorial donations to the American Heart Association, c/o Shaffer-Jensen Memory Chapel, P.O. Box 730, Payette, ID 83661.

Edward (Ted) Filley Dies at Residence

Edward (Ted) Filley, 46, Weiser city electrician for the past five years and former employee of the Idaho Power company, died at his home at 727 West First street Saturday at about 7:40 a.m. following a heart attack. Mr. Filley was born April 8, 1905 at Council and has resided in Weiser for the past eight years. He is said to have a greater working knowledge of Weiser electrical circuits than any person in the community.

Mr. Filley went to work for the city of Weiser in 1947 and became electrical foreman. Included in the many projects which he planned and installed were the drawing up of plans for the city electrical lines and improvement of the city power system by sectionalizing the circuits. This sectionalizing enabled crews to confine power failures to small sections of the community rather than the entire city.

At the time of death, he was engaged in the project of a proposed installation of a "loop" circuit into the city which could be used as a secondary source of power for the city in case of power failure on the main supply lines. He also assisted in the installation and design of the lights at Memorial park and in shortening lines to keep voltages up and installing more transformers throughout the city to give residents better service.

Mr. Filley is survived by his wife, Juline; his mother, Mrs. Minnie Filley of Council; and three brothers, George Filley of Richmond, Calif., Sig of Cascade Locks, Ore., and Lewis of Eugene, Ore., a sister, Mrs. Marion Foutz of Klamath Falls, Ore.

The time of services has been set for Tuesday at 10 a.m. at the Northam-Jones chapel with Rev. O. L. Johnson officiating. Interment will be at the Rosedale cemetery in Payette. (Rosedale Cemetery) Submitted by Patty Theurer
