A lifelong resident of Wyoming, Mae never met a stranger she didn’t help, never shied from hard work, and always wore a smile. Many know her from her Glendo Sundries store and she most likely waited on you with her wit and charm at the Old Western Saloon. She would go to bingo weekly and loved hitting up the slot machines when she wasn’t playing cards with anyone who would join.
Her independent and energetic spirit was infections and to know her really was to love her.
Graveside burial will be held on her 87th birthday, July 1, 2022, at 11 a.m. at the Wheatland Cemetery. In lieu of cards and flowers, the family would like all donations to go to Marge Cares Foundation or Central Wyoming Hospice and Transitions.
