Mamie "Elna" Weston

September 23, 1921 — July 23, 2018

Mamie Elna Weston, 96, passed away Monday, July 23, 2018 at the Elwood Care Center. Mamie Elna Weston was born on September 23, 1921 in Bedford Iowa to parents John & Eulalie Sanders. The family moved to Wyoming during the depression period of the 30’s to homestead. Elna completed her final years of school in Dubois and graduating from Shoshone High School. Elna was the oldest out of five with two brothers and sisters. Elna’s passions growing up were rodeos, her horse Partner and dancing. She met Clyde Weston in Shoshone, Wyoming. Clyde shared the same passions which they carried on into their marriage in 1942. The union with Clyde brought with it four step children, Anna, Bobby, Charlie and Wayne. Their marriage also blessed them with two sons David and Gary. Elna lived her adult life in Alliance, Nebraska, Meridian, Idaho and Lexington, Nebraska. Family and friends were of prime importance to Elna. She loved to spend time with her husband, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Elna loved riding horses, gardening, crocheting, dancing and country western music. She and Clyde went to dances every weekend. She also loved her animals, cats, dogs (she was partial to standard poodles) parrots and a racoon. She was preceded in death by her parents John and Eulalie, brothers John David and Eldon, husband Clyde, two stepsons Bobby and Charles, one son David and one great grandson Jasper. Left to mourn her passing are her son Gary and wife Sharolyn of Castle Rock, Colorado, stepson Dr. Wayne Weston and wife Loretta of Lexington, Nebraska, stepdaughter Anna Smith of Colorado Springs, Colorado, daughter in law Carol Card of Parma, Idaho, stepdaughter in law Faye Weston of Alliance, Nebraska, stepdaughter in law Barbara Weston of Layfayette, Louisiana, sister Fern Emmons of Windom, Minnesota and sister LaVonna (Tuffy) Dehnke of Minot, North Dakota, granddaughter’s Angie Herring and husband Ted of Riggins, Idaho, Julie Troxel and husband Lynn of Parma, Idaho, Teresa O’Hara of Castle Rock, Colorado, Heather Rodine and husband Chad of Castle Rock, Colorado, four great grandchildren, 11 step grandchildren and numerous step great grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Elna emphasized that she wanted to be remembered for her life and not her death. In honoring her request, she was cremated and her ashes will be cast to the winds of the Wind River Mountain Range near Fort Washakie Wyoming. Her fondest memories were when she along with her horse Pardner would sneak up on the herds of wild horses and watch them for hours! She along with Pardner can now spend eternity watching the herds in the Wind River Mountain Range, listening to country music, dancing with her favorite dance partner, Clyde, and sharing her stories with all the rest of the family that preceded before her.
