Miriam Ann Wensky

(Dec. 18, 1939 - Nov. 17, 2012)

Miriam Ann Wensky of Powell died Saturday, Nov. 17, 2012 at Evergreen Rehab in Laurel, Mont. She was 72.

Miriam was born Dec. 18, 1939 in Cheyenne to Anna Rodgers and George Estabrook. She attended school in Cheyenne. Miriam married Frank Wensky on June 22, 1956 in Cheyenne, and they lived there until moving to Powell in 1965. Miriam and Frank were married for 56 years.

After they moved to Powell, Miriam became much involved in the archery and sewing clubs, and she loved playing cards. They bought a farm, and with Frank’s work as a full-time diesel mechanic, Miriam helped with the farming. She was also secretary for Frank’s diesel mechanic business. She was a fantastic seamstress and loved to sew. She decorated cakes and made the best cinnamon rolls. Everyone looked forward to her rolls at Christmas time.

Frank loved to hunt and fish, so the family went to the mountains every weekend. That was Miriam’s time to write poetry and read books and she wrote about her life through her poetry. She read and studied her Bible every day and guided her family through the word. God was first in Miriam’s life and family came second. She was the backbone of her family and she will be greatly missed.

Miriam was preceded in death by her parents, sisters Donna Hammer and Coral Lemons, and brother Leonard Crozier. She is survived by her husband Frank; daughter Patty (David) Dalke; brother James (Reta) Estabrook; five grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

Funeral services will be held at 10 a.m. Monday, Nov. 26 at Glad Tidings Church in Powell, with Pastor Mike Walsh officiating.

Thompson Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements and condolences may be sent to the family at or P.O. Box 807, Powell, WY 82435.
