David Ripley: A Great Lady Goes to Her Reward

November 14th, 2010 by Halli

Idaho Chooses Life

Former state Senator Claire Wetherell passed away this last week. Idaho has lost a great lady.
Claire was a feminist of a different stripe. She demonstrated a character and strength born of service in World War II – harkening to the kind of traditional feminism which settled the West.

While Claire Wetherell was a Democrat, she acquired her politics in a different era. Her politics were built on regard for working people, the family and her Christian faith. During her time in the State Senate, Idaho Democrats moved toward an increasing emphasis upon entitlement and abortion as their core organizing principles – but Claire remained unapologetically pro-Life.

I had the privilege of knowing her, and working for her election even before coming to the pro-Life movement myself.

She was gracious, gentle and principled. There can be no doubt that Claire left the world a better place for her innumerable contributions to Mountain Home and Idaho.

Our sincere condolences and prayers go out to her family.

David Ripley
