     Leah Poff was buried at Riverside Cemetery (also known as Emmett Cemetery), Emmett, Gem Co., Idaho.3 She was born on June 24, 1919 at Nampa, Canyon Co., Idaho.3 As of July 27, 1936,her married name was Mihu.2 She married George Kellogg Mihu on July 27, 1936 at Payette, Payette Co., Idaho.1,2,3 Leah Poff died on December 3, 2015 at Boise, Ada Co., Idaho, at age 96.3 She Leah Poff Mihu was born June 24, 1919, in Nampa, Idaho, to Charles Dean Poff, of Virginia, and Ruby Virtue Blackburn Poff of Utah. As a young girl, she lived in both Idaho and Utah, with most of her growing up years being spent on a farm near Cascade before the family moved to Emmett, Idaho. She was the oldest of 10 children and helped to raise her younger siblings. When Leah was 16, she went on a blind, double date with one of her sisters, where her date turned out to be George Kellogg Mihu. George and Leah were married on July 27, 1936 in Payette, Idaho. As George & Leah raised their family, they lived in first Idaho then in Richmond, California during World War II, before moving back to Boise, Idaho. It was during the time in California that Leah attended cosmetology school. From then on, Leah worked styling hair for men, women, and children. She loved this work so much, that after the war, when the family was able to move back to Boise, she worked in and then owned a beauty shop downtown before deciding to open her own shop in her home. Leah loved to make people happy by helping them to look their best. Leah bore four children and raised three to adulthood. Raising her children and caring for her family, styling hair, doing family history work, and serving in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints were her favorite things to do and she lived a very full life doing the things that she loved. Leah passed away at home on December 3, 2015, in Boise, Idaho of natural causes, being 96 years of age. Leah was preceded in death by her husband, George Kellogg Mihu, and six of her siblings. In addition to her three living children, Donna Jean Snow of Boise, Idaho, Ronald Kenneth Mihu (Laurene) of Clifton, Idaho, and Edith Anne Hatch of Tucson, Arizona, Leah is survived by 20 grandchildren, over 50 great grandchildren, and 2 great-great grandchildren. She is also survived by three of her siblings, Emma Poff Dooley, Charles Dean Poff, and Larry Jay Poff. She was a strong, happy, loving woman who will be greatly missed, but we can only imagine the joy she's feeling at being reunited with her family members and friends who passed on before her. Leah Poff Mihu will be laid to rest in the Emmett City Cemetery, in Emmett, Idaho, on December 11, 2015 at a graveside service at 11 a.m. on December 9, 2015.3
