Management Change

Home / Uncategorized / Management Change

After over 20 years of dedicated service our sexton, Jolene Farmer, has decided to retire.  During her career at the cemetery, Jolene served as secretary, and for the better portion of that time, as sexton.  Truly, there is not a job here that Jolene hasn’t done.  We appreciate the many years of valued service Jolene has provided.  Her service and dedication to making the cemetery a beautiful resting place will always be remembered.

In addition to Jolene’s retirement, our longest serving board member, Duane Jensen, has also retired from his position.  Duane has long served as board chairman.  In addition to his clerical duties as chairman, Duane was always willing to lend a hand and assist with burials and other tasks at the cemetery.  His service to the community and cemetery will long be appreciated.

We wish Jolene & Duane well in their future endeavors.

In accordance with Idaho Code 27-110(3) the vacancy of the cemetery board has been filled by the board.  Brutch Merril has been appointed to fill the vacancy.  Brent Lewis, current board member, was nominated to serve as the board Chairman.

The current board is as follows:

Brent Lewis, Chairman
Steve Jones, Member
Brutch Merril, Member
Dallen Farmer, Secretary

Dallen Farmer, long time cemetery employee, was offered and accepted, the position of cemetery sexton & general manager.  Dallen has worked at the cemetery in various maintenance capacities since 1997.  His knowledge of the cemetery and maintenance procedures will be an asset to the cemetery and board.  His appointment was official April 1st.

Questions or public comment may be directed to the secretary of the board, by emailing secretary@riversidethomascemetery.org.

We look forward to making the cemetery a better place to visit this 2017 season.
