She was very artistic, and will be remembered for her hand crafted goose eggs decorated in the "Faberge" style. Several of her eggs were displayed at the White House in the 1990's representing the state of Wyoming. She volunteered for many organizations, including March of Dimes and Easter Seals. She also was very active as a parishioner of St. Joseph's Catholic Church. Mrs. Chapman was preceded in death by her parents; James, her husband of 52 years; her son Michael Chapman in 2003, and her sister Katherine Irene Larson of Yankton, SD. She is survived by her children, Pat Chapman, Leo (Sandra) Chapman, and Kathi Gray, all of Rawlins; six grandchildren, five great grandchildren, and two great, great grandchildren.
