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 www.thompsonfuneral.net or P.O. Box 807, Powell, WY 82435.
