She attended elementary and high school in Wyoming, graduating Valedictorian of Wheatland High School in 1957. On Aug. 30, 1959 she married Richard McQuisten in Wheatland. She lived in several states following her husband in his employment and enjoyed her retirement as she and her husband traveled in Hawaii, Mexico, Europe and Alaska.
She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Michelle and Shawn Sullivan; two grandsons, Thomas and Jacob, great grandson Beckett Josiah and a beloved brother-in-law, Marvin Hopkins of Thermopolis. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Richard, son Michael, a baby daughter, Penny Jo, and her sister and brother.
