Mark Dee Greenough, age 60, of Twin Falls, Idaho, passed away at his home surrounded by his wife, step daughter, step son , and step grandkids on October 27, 2020 of natural causes. Mark Dee Greenough was born in Burlington, Vermont on June 29,1960 to Armond and Helen Hewitt-Greenough. He graduated from Arlington High school and later became a Custodian at the College of Southern Idaho who was very well known and loved. Mark met his current wife in Riverside, California years before they married in the Chapel at the College of Southern Idaho on December 4, 2016. Mark was Joanie's next door neighbor when they first met in the early 2000’s and they carried out many years of love and friendship in his later years. Mark loved Jesus! As he would say, He LOVED the Lord and he LOVED his Mother Helen. Mark and his wife spent a lot of years in the Ministry in California together. He loved animals but cats in particular and became the cat man in every neighborhood he lived in. He called them his kids. Even though he never had children of his own he simply had his 3 cats, a few stray cats on the side, and his step children who called him Dad. He loved his job at the College of Southern Idaho after he spent 16 years in construction at Dave's Dirt Work in Hesperia, California with the Romero family. Mark is survived by his wife Joanie Greenough, his mother Helen Charland (Helen Hewitt-Greenough), his sister Wanda Ornelas, brother Todd Greenough, nephew Trenton Greenough, niece Camilla Beth (Camilla Greenough), brother Steve Greenough, sister Tami Elkins, and nephew Michael Elkins along with his step children: Terra Thompson and Michael Romero Jr., Amanda Thompson and Kasy Tate, and all of their children. There will be a service held at the Fine Arts Building on the College of Southern Idaho Campus. Please contact Loretta Taylor at (208) 317-7026 to RSVP for the service. Please call first. We welcome all condolences. Amanda Thompson. Words. Expressed “Mark has been the most amazing man that we know. Us as a family are working very hard to get through this together. Even though we are all hundreds of miles apart, the person Mark was has always brought us together and made us smile because his smile was the brightest!!! As difficult as it has been these last few days, I am blessed to have the opportunity to talk and mingle with every single person that wants to express their emotions, love, and care for Mark. With these last few words, I hope everyone has the opportunity to please express their love and care for Mark right where you are. Mark would want everyone to enjoy him in their own time, comfort, and place. He was so tight he squeaked, in matters of money, that this could only make you laugh and enjoy him more. There will never be a day that we will forget him. (he would tell you that himself) Like my mother would say, if he could run into the beach in his own arms he would be doing just that. No one said this had to be a typical obituary. (I know he’d say that too) He would say this is different, this is beautiful, being with the Lord is so amazing!!!” Terra Thompson: Words Expressed “Trust and believe Mark Dee Greenough you were one of my most favorite people in the whole world. You were a father, a friend, and most of all the love of my Mother, Joanie Greenough's life!!! I will cherish our time together as a family, honor your memory with every song we ever sang together, and I will let you live through me. Watch over us everyday cause you know we need to feel your presence. I Love You!!!! Love your daughter, Terra
