Margaret Marie Mathill (Marie) was born December 12, 1920 near Gering, Nebraska (in the sandhills) at home. She passed away in Rawlins, Wyoming on February 10, 2024 at the age of 103.

            Her family left Nebraska during a four-year drought and moved to Lander, Wyoming in 1936. They started a dairy farm out on Snavely Lane between Lander and Hudson. She met and married Raymon (Butch) Mathill in 1938. To their union was born 5 children; three daughters born in Lander – Phyllis in 1941, Sharon in 1943 and Gloria in 1947. The family moved to Sheep Creek on Green Mountain for a short period of time in 1949, then to the 46 Ranch at the foot of Green Mountain in 1950 and then on to Bairoil in 1951. Two sons were born there – Rod in 1953 and Raymon (Butch) in 1956. They made their home there until 1969, with Raymon (Butch) working in the oil field. Marie never worked away from the home, remaining a homemaker, mother and grandmother.
