BLACKFOOT â€” Not even a week has passed since the Firth Lady Cougars raised the 2A state championship trophy at the Idaho Center in Nampa, but it is time for me to name the All-Bingham County girls basketball team.
The basketball season was full of exciting moments for the teams in Bingham County and saw improvement by some teams, a step backward by others and a lot of hope for the future.
Joyce Higgins Jensen, 72, passed away peacefully in her home on Feb. 19, 2014, surrounded by her family. After a courageous battle with cancer, she enjoyed a glorious reunion on the other side of the veil in the arms of her husband, parents, brothers and sister, and her Savior.
Joyce was born Jan. 13, 1942, in Blackfoot, Idaho, to Arthur Eugene and Thelda Romreill Higgins.Â She was the youngest of seven children, six of whom survived to adulthood.Â She was raised in the Riverside-Thomas area, and attended local schools, graduating in 1960 from Snake River High School.
