Barbara White FoggAugust 10, 1937 ~ September 28, 2017 (age 80)
In the quiet morning hours of September 28, 2017, and in the comfort of her own home in Wilder, Idaho, Barbara White Fogg peacefully returned to her heavenly home.
Barbara was born August 10, 1937, in Salt Lake City Utah. She was the second of 4 daughters to Tom and Maxine White. She was raised in Ogden where she had many adventures with her sisters and dear friend Rochelle. Barbara took dance lessons, piano lessons and played the clarinet. She even got to wash the dirty socks for the Ogden Reds baseball team at the launderette her parents owned which was an experience she loved to share. Baseball was her passion from a young age.
After graduating from Ogden High School, Barbara went on to graduate in the first nursing class at Weber College. She then got her bachelor’s degree in nursing from the University of Utah. After serving a mission for her church in Brazil, Barbara returned to Utah where she worked at the LDS hospital in their new coronary care unit. While working in Utah, Barbara met her sweetheart Billy D. Fogg. It was quite the whirlwind romance and they were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple on June 30, 1967. Later that year they moved to Wilder Idaho where she spent the remaining 50 years of her life. Barbara and Bill made quite the impact on that little town. She also made a profound impression on the Caldwell community as she worked at Caldwell Memorial Hospital and West Valley Medical Center for over 34 years. She loved her hospital family and they all loved “Mother Fogg.”
Barbara spent her life doing what she loved most- serving people. Starting and working on Wilder’s Quick Response Unit, coaching t-ball, keeping score at the high school volleyball games and serving in many different church callings kept her happy and busy. Barbara touched the hearts and lives of many and will be greatly missed.
She is survived by her 5 children: Tom (Alyssa) Fogg, Terri Elizondo, Jeff (Lilian) Fogg, Becky Fogg and Robert (Cate) Fogg, 11 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren and her 3 sisters Dixie Stewart, Karen Hoggan and Elaine Klodnicki. She was preceded in death by her husband Bill and her parents.
