Tamy was born in Casper Wyoming where she spent time surrounded by her parents, grandparents, cousins and sisters where she gained a lifelong bond with her many cousins. Tamy was a stubborn girl who knew what she wanted, and as a toddler, you could always find her by following her trail of clothes since she hated being dressed. Tamy moved to Evanston Wyoming with her mother and step father Randy when she was 10 years old. She attended Evanston high school as well as Port Orchard high while living with her father in Washington. Tamy earned her GED at the age of 18. 

After she finished high school, Tamy moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado to see what was there. It was in Colorado where she met the father of her two oldest children, and was blessed with a son, Justis Drew Brougton on October 18, 1996. She moved back to Evanston where she raised Justis and then was blessed with another son, Mason Reed Cureton on January 22, 2001. 

In the following year, Tamy met the love of her life and her soulmate, Samuel Trimble. They were married on July 4, 2004 in Evanston, Wyoming. Sam blessed Tamy with twins, Dru and Ashley that they raised together with Justis and Mason. While they were married Tamy enjoyed her time as a homemaker raising her children with so much love. She cherished her friends and family. While in Evanston, Tamy was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Tamy and Sam moved to NewCastle, Wyoming and then tragedy struck, and Tamy was left a widow with the unforeseen death of her husband Sam. After Sam passed away, Tamy moved to Casper to be close to her family so they could help her due to the MS, and continue to raise her children. Tamy loved going to concerts, Black Friday shopping, and watching Maurey Povich. 

In 2014, Tamy went to live at Shepherd of the Valley once the MS had taken such a toll on her body that she was unable to care for her children and for herself. While at shepherd of the Valley, she remained her happy self. She touched so many of the staff’s and residents lives, and made so many friends. It was so easy to be friends with Tamy because of her happy and bubbly personality. Tamy stayed busy during her stay at the nursing home, always participating in their activities. She was all over the place, and everyone would joke when she had visitors that “she’s around here some where”. 

Tamy will be missed by everyone that she came into contact with. The world will miss her sparkling spirit. Thank you Tamy for all the memories.

Walter “Walt” F. Fincher, age 68, of Minatare, NE passed away at his home on Monday, January 28, 2019. A memorial service was held on Saturday, February 2, 2019 at 2 pm at the Emmanuel Congregation Lutheran Church, 4100 Avenue B Scottsbluff, Ne, with Pastor John Adams officiating. A Celebration of his life pot luck lunch was held following the memorial service at the Scotts Bluff county Fairgrounds in Mitchell, NE. Condolences and memories of Walt can be shared with the family at

Walt was born on May 26, 1950 in Cheyenne, WY to Clara Beeman and was later adopted by Walter and Edith Fincher. He attended school at Hope School and later Scottsbluff Senior high School. He graduated in 1968 and attended WNCC.

In 1970, he married Nancy Bowker and together they had two children: Tracy and Shannon. They divorced in 1983. In 1988, Walt married Deliena Eastin, and gained a daughter: Misty Morley.

Walt “the plumber” began his trade 45 years ago with his then father-in-law, George Bowker. He worked all over the state of Wyoming and Utah, making friends along the way. He opened his own shop in Riverton, WY in the late ‘80s. He continued his trade in Scottsbluff, when he moved back to help care for his mother.

Walt had many loves, from music to jokes, fishing with his family, and his motorcycle “Dan”. He was great at sending a text, in all caps, just to say hi. He was quick with a joke and loved to pull pranks; anyone who got sprayed from a faucet can tell you that. He also left notes for his customers like “Buy Beer For Walt”, which paid off for the first time this last December.

He was preceded in death by his parents Walt and Edith, and mother Clara.

He is survived by his wife Deliena Fincher; children Tracy (Shorty) Butler, Shannon (Jill) Fincher, Misty Sumner; sister Carolyn Ursenbach; grandchildren Wyatt Butler, Trinity Tunin, Sawyer Fincher, and Charlie Butler; and many other family and friends.
