MALTA – Dolly Ellen Justice passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by family Sunday, Aug. 29, 2010.

Dolly was born Oct. 2, 1929, in Maple Falls, Wash., to Rosella MacAdoo and Issac Tussing. She was the youngest of 13 children. Since her mother died during childbirth, Dolly was raised by Royce and Verna Beech. As a child, she moved around a lot as work became available. One of the most notable places she lived as a child was New York. She eventually married the love of her life, Woodrow Wilson Justice, on Jan. 21, 1950, in Reno, Nev. She worked as a dental assistant as well as a mortician’s assistant. After a few years, they had two children, Jackie and Larry. Dolly then decided she wanted to be a stay-at-home mom and so she did. Woodrow and Dolly had such a love of children they decided to become foster parents for 34 children. Some stayed only a while, while others such as Brad, Norman and Dina grew up with them as if they were their own. After a while, Woodrow and Dolly decided they would move from the big city to Malta, Idaho. There Dolly worked for C and Y Dairy until she retired. Dolly had several hobbies, which included embroidery, camping, fishing and gardening. She would much rather be outside than be inside cooking. She also enjoyed bowling since as far back as 1973, where she was able to travel the country with her friends and win numerous awards. Dolly was very family oriented and loved all of them very much.

She leaves behind Jackie (David) Richan of Idaho Falls, Larry (Marie) Justice of Malta, Brad Long of North Dakota, Dina Justice of Phoenix, Ariz., Norman Marshall of California and Kathy (Brent) Wickel of Albion. She also leaves behind 13 grandchildren, Bettie May, Sonya, Sara, George, Angel, Franklin, Katrina, Camille, Jasmine, Lunde, Ashley, Ethan and Rachel, as well as their spouses; and 12 great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her husband, Woodrow Wilson Justice; and parents, Issac and Rosella Tussing.

A graveside service will be held at 1 p.m. Friday, Sept. 3, at the Valley View Cemetery in Malta. Viewing for family and friends will be held from 10 a.m. to noon Friday prior to the service at the Hansen-Payne Mortuary, 321 E. Main in Burley.
