She is an amazing woman. She loves the Lord and has a knowledge of eternal families that has sustained her through her life of blessings and trials. She raised 9 individual children. She is a perfect example of unconditional love.


As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints she held every position from nursery to the Relief Society Presidency. She was a teacher of the gospel that inspired others and increased attendance in her classes.


Mom’s sense of humor ranged from simple jokes to starting water fights at the dinner table. Her wide range of interest included music, sewing and especially her beautiful bead work which she loved sharing with her family and friends.

Mom loved to read. She shared this love with her children, reading aloud to us at night before bed to help us learn to dream big. As her family has grown her grandkids and great-grandkids have learned at her knee, elbow, lap and anywhere they could find, to appreciate the world of literature. But if there is one thing she wanted to share more then anything else it is her love for each and everyone of us both family and friends.
She will be missed and is loved by all who knew her.

Arrangements are entrusted to the care of Bustard & Jacoby Funeral Home, 600 CY Avenue, Casper, WY 82601.

In lieu of flowers, donations or cards, as a family we are asking for random gifts of kindness to be passed along throughout every community. Anyone who had the pleasure of meeting my Grandma will understand why we are asking for this gift of kindness. Our family believes that kindness was the legacy that she leaves behind and the best way to honor her life and death and the very special person she was is to keep that kindness being passed forward from family and friends to complete strangers alike. My Grandma didn’t know a stranger in her life because in her heart they were ALL family.

The greatest among you must be a servant. Matthew 23:11
