Deborah L. Mason, 67, of Casper, Wyoming passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on Saturday, December 3, 2022 at Central Wyoming Hospice in Casper. She was born on December 19, 1954 in Denver, CO to John and Naomi Roberts. She was raised in Oklahoma as one of five siblings. In 1979 she relocated to Casper, Wyoming with her two oldest children where she met the love of her life, Ben Mason while she was waitressing at Ghost Town Truck Stop.

She will be remembered for her drive and zest for life and protecting the many children in her life. She is known for her long conversations around her table, her open mindedness, and she was very non-judgmental with her love.

Deb enjoyed watching her children through great grandchildren grow, her yearly vacations and her family get togethers. Christmas was her favorite holiday, she loved to cook and she was very enthusiastic over football and NASCAR.

Aside from her many roles of motherhood, she ended her occupational career as a secretary and head of dispatch for Whites Mountain Motors.

She will be truly missed by all that have had the pleasure of knowing her.

May you rest in peace mother, wife and grandmother.

Bonita was born in Lemmon, South Dakota to John and Katherine (Kahl) Hess on December 15th, 1954. She went to Lemmon High School graduating in 1973. She began to work at the Lemmon Leader Newspaper in high school and continued to work there until 1976.

Needing more space for the growing family, Bonita and family moved to Ranchester before Audrey was born in 1983.

A talented and creative seamstress, she would cut up her old clothes to make baby clothes, often matching outfits among siblings complete with accessories, not only being frugal but putting a creative and sentimental touch to the fashion. She took her crafts and sewing to the highest level, one of her favorites being Halloween costumes and prom dresses. Once the kids were all in school she started working at the Tongue River Schools, later retiring as a ParaProfessional. She loved kids, touching the lives of her many students and her 5 grandchildren with an unmatched abundance of creativity and a playful and witty sense of humor.
