A Saturday memorial service will honor of the life of Dr. Maj StormoGipson, a local pediatrician who made frequent trips to Latin America to help people in need. StormoGipson, 57, died Friday in a rafting accident during a family outing on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River. The service is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. at the Kroc Center in Coeur d’Alene, 1765 W. Golf Course Road. StormoGipson became trapped underwater when her inflatable kayak struck a partially submerged tree, according to an account provided by her family/Becky Kramer, SR. More here.
