On Sunday, July 17th, my wonderful wife, Meeche Bodner, left her body behind and was freed from the prison of Alzheimer’s.

Meeche was a graduate of the Barbara Brennan School of Healing and a Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner, founder of Seven Oaks Birthing Center in Bonners Ferry, Idaho. She was a woman of many talents: a healer, gardener, river runner, artist, writer, archeologist, mushroom hunter, and adventurer. She loved the color purple.

Meeche is survived by Dave, her husband of 44 years; her daughters, Laely Heron and Aimee Lorenzen; and her grandson, Evan Lorenzen.

Cremation has taken place and no ceremony is planned. In her honor. please take a hike, run a river, remember to breathe, be kind, enjoy your day and wear purple.
