Please help Ronan couple rebuild home


On May 7, Arlo and Marilyn Baltz of Ronan had a terrible house fire and lost their entire house, including everything in the home. Daughter Karen Baltz Gibbs stated on her Go Fund Me account that her dad, Arlo Baltz, built this home the year she was born. “My parents lived a simple life but gave what they could to help others. They lost everything including their beloved cat. They came home Sunday after visiting a sick friend to find their home on fire. They lived on a fixed income and had no homeowners insurance.”

Donations can be made at the Valley Bank in Ronan under Marilyn Baltz’s name or there has been a Go Fund Me account set up by their daughter, Karen Baltz Gibbs. Just go to:, click on the magnifying glass (search) and type in Karen Baltz Gibbs.

Please help them raise money to rebuild a home. No amount is too small. God bless.Thank you.
