Joseph William Henscheid

April 5th, 1928 - October 24th, 2020

Joseph William Henscheid died in Boise, Idaho, on October 24, 2020 at the age of 92, succumbing to the effects of Parkinson's Disease. He was born to Herman Henscheid and Theresa Wagner Henscheid in Rupert, Idaho, on April 5, 1928. He grew up in Rupert along with three siblings. In 1950 he enlisted in the U.S. Air Force where he served for 4 years. In 1951 he married the love of his life, Mary Gnemi, and they had six children. He completed his undergraduate degree in physics, followed by his Master’s Degree in nuclear physics. He then spent his 30-year career as a nuclear physicist at the Idaho National Laboratory. In retirement, he and his wife Mary settled in Boise. They traveled extensively and volunteered for groups including Habitat for Humanity and the American Red Cross. He was an active member of Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Idaho Falls and later Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church in Boise, and was particularly passionate about his work for the St. Vincent de Paul Society. He is survived by his wife and children: Madeleine Koeppen (Don), Christine Doty (Mike), Nicolette Karst (Kurt), Carrie Henscheid (Ken), Eric Henscheid (Cynthia) and Ann Riedesel (Jeff); seven grandchildren and five great grandchildren. He is also survived by his sister, Dolly Freiburger of Rupert, and his brother, Robert Henscheid of Dayton, Ohio; as well as many nieces and nephews. The family would like to extend a special thank you to Keystone Hospice and the staff of the Terraces of Boise for their wonderful care and devotion to Joe. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In memory of Joe, contributions may be made to St Vincent de Paul, the Red Cross, or a charity of your choice.

To most, he went by Joe. To his relatives, he went by "Bill". My heart and prayers go out to my Aunt Mary and all my cousins. Uncle Bill was always calm and thoughtful. I NEVER saw him raise his voice. He was my godfather, and he will be missed.

I worked with Joe at the site for a long time. He was one of the nicest guys I knew and good at his job. He and I had a close feeling with one another just because of his kind humanity, not mine. I am saddened by his passing.

Joe was a blessed person who shared his many talents within his community. Fellow parishioners at Our Lady of the Rosary appreciated his ministry as a lector at Sunday liturgies. He also transported donated food from OLR to the St. Vincent pantry at the Bench location. Many people were cheered by his friendliness to all he met. He was a saint among us and will be missed not only by his immediate family but by his community, I am comforted by the fact that he will be there to greet those of us who will be called by Our Maker in the future. In the meantime I pray for his family with the hope that many precious memories will comfort them in their grief. Bette Boone
