Sylvia Hale (Steed) Warpness

“My Savior’s eyes saw me before I was formed; before a single one of my days took shape they were all prepared and written in His scroll.” (Psalm 139:16) … and her days of earthly life were 32,388:  88 years, 6 months, 1 day. Born in Jackson Hole, Wyoming on September 2, 1931; died in Sheridan, Wyoming on March 3, 2020.

… From collecting eggs and cleaning the chicken coop, to working Square G at Jenny Lake, to marrying Gunnar at the Chapel of Transfiguration in Moose, Wyoming; she raised four children in Riverton and  Powell, WY, teaching them character through scouts and 4-H leadership, all while actively serving the church & managing the day to day operations for her husband’s insurance business. She also participated in Business & Professional Women (BPW) after moving to Powell, WY, and Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) with several congregations and roles of leadership.  Her final earthly years were spent in Sheridan until her angelic ride home to her Creator. She was Wyoming from beginning to end. Now she lives eternal life through the promises she believed, in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Sylvia Warpness is survived by her four children Barry Warpness (Rachel) of Monroe, WI; Signe Warpness of Aurora, CO; Allan Warpness (Kara) of Colorado Springs, CO; and Kristina Warpness Kuenne of Sheridan, WY; brother Allan T. Steed of Sedona, AZ.; four grand-children; four great-grandchildren; numerous grand nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband Gunnar, her parents, and one sister.

Memorials in Sylvia’s name may be made to Martin Luther Grammar School c/o Immanuel Lutheran Church, 1300 W 5th St., Sheridan, WY, 82801.
