Lois Punteney found her way home on Oct. 2, after living a full and happy life.
Lois was born Jan. 27, 1935, in Wichita Falls, Texas, to William and Mary Wadley. She was the second child, coming after Betty Jean and prior to her little brother Marvin. Later in life, fate would bring her together with a sister, Helen, whom she never knew growing up. She grew up in several states, including Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Missouri, Colorado, California and Wyoming.
In her younger years, she enjoyed working at the Steele Hot Springs Pool and Ranch. She attended Central Technical Institute in 1953, studying Airline Reservations-Communications gaining her certificate from the FCC. Lois spent the majority of her working life in the family business, Persh’s Water Service. Later in her life, she was elected as a board member for the cemetery board, volunteered at Southwest Sublette County Pioneers Senior Center and enjoyed her Sundays as a Lay Eucharistic Minister.
She married one of the loves of her life, Harold Glasgow, in 1954. From this marriage she had four children: Wayne, Kim, Kareen and Gary. After Harold was lost in an oilfield accident, she married Persh Punteney in 1971. With this union came Jeep, Jean, Kay, Don, Ron and Kelly. Together they had a son, Michael John. With a total of 11 children, came 13 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.
In her spare time, Lois enjoyed camping, crocheting, cooking, gardening, church, playing games, traveling, picnics, friends and her family. She is well known for her famous cream and sugar buttermilk pancakes and her spice cake covered in penuche frosting.
She is preceded in death by her parents, two siblings, four children, both spouses, one infant child and one grandchild. She is survived by her sister Helen, children Wayne, Kim, Kareen, Gary, Kay, Ron, Kelly, 12 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.
