Memorials commemorate Kress, Carlson, Shepherd, Cenarrusa, Campbell, Stone, more…

Both the House and Senate are holding their annual memorial services today for members who died in the past year. The Senate has just two: former Sens. Stan Kress, of Bingham County, and Herb Carlson, of Ada County. The House has 10: Former Reps. Cyril Burt, Golden Linford, John Campbell, Mary Lou Shepherd, Pete Cenarrusa, Ralph Steele, Wayne Hall, Ruby Stone, Larry Harris and Gertrude Sutton. In addition to the memorial presentations, musical commemorations will be featured in both houses; the Boise High String Quartet will perform in the Senate, and in the House, the BSU Meistersingers will perform, as will Reps. Thyra Stevenson and Patrick McDonald on the bagpipes.
