In memory of
Mack Rockwood Tolmie
Homedale, Idaho - Mack Rockwood Tolmie, born August 4, 1930 in Idaho Falls to Norman and Elaine Tolmie, died on his farm in Homedale on May 3, 2021. Mack spent his youth in Iona and New Plymouth before the family settled in Homedale. Mack grew up helping his family farm and working various jobs where he could. He enjoyed playing most sports, and excelled at baseball and basketball. After high school, Mack enlisted in the Air Force. He spent most of his time in Japan, where he worked to repurpose World War II-era telecommunications equipment for use in the Korean War. Mack was honorably discharged in December 1952. Back in civilian life in Homedale, Mack met and married the love of his life, Donna Lee Thompson. They bought the "old Thompson farm", where they worked the land, built their dream home, and raised four children. Mack received many honors for his work, including the Conservation Award from the Owyhee Soil Conservation District, and was named Farmer of the Year by the Homedale Chamber of Commerce. He was highly regarded among his peers, and served on several boards, including the Idaho Potato Commission and Bargaining Committee, the Idaho Alfalfa Seed Commission, the Farmers Home Administration board, and the Gem Irrigation District Board. Mack retired from farming in 1985. Mack spent his retirement years traveling, serving in his church, and enjoying his family and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Joan (Dale) Mendenhall; brother, Hal (Jude) Tolmie; sister, Colleen (Larry) Bahem; son, Bryan Tolmie; grandson, Samuel Murri; and great grandson, Judah Jones. He is survived by his wife, Donna Lee Tolmie; daughters: Maxine (Andy) Day, Janiece (Blake) Murri, and Brenda Tolmie; four grandchildren; and ten great grandchildren. A viewing will be held on Saturday, May 8th from 9-10:00 A.M. at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 708 State Hwy 19 in Homedale, with a funeral service to begin at 10:00 A.M.
