Angeline Feltner

Angeline Feltner passed away Oct. 21, 2005, at the Sublette Center in Pinedale. She was born Feb. 7, 1903, to Louis H. (Lou) and Musetta (Etta) Hennick on their Green River ranch just west of Pinedale, where she lived until her parents bought the Patterson ranch on the northwest edge of Pinedale in 1916.

Angeline attended Riverglade School on the Green River, elementary schools in Big Piney and Pinedale, and high schools in Pinedale and Denver. She was offered a scholarship at Denver University, but chose to marry Curt (C.C.) Feltner, a World War I veteran and Sublette County's first surveyor. Together they reared six children.

Angeline was a popular performer in early Pinedale theater productions and was often called upon to recite at civic and social events. She was active in the American Legion Auxiliary, Eastern Star, the Congregational Church, the Ladies Community Club and bridge clubs.

She loved her years on the family Bar-Bar-O Ranch on Pole Creek Road, enjoyed watching baseball and major horse races, and enjoyed her family and friends, many of whom were fellow residents and caregivers at the Sublette Center the past 15 years.

She was preceded in death by her parents, brother Richard, sisters Hazel and Sally, husband Curt, son Wayne, grandson Larry Gras and great-granddaughter Desire Feltner.

She is survived by children Juana Gras of Tucson, Ariz., Elma Beattie of Denver, Kurt (Cub) Feltner of Pinedale, Sally Storey of Phoenix, Ariz., and Angela Thompson of Lincoln City, Ore., and numerous nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great-children.

Cremation has taken place and a service is scheduled at the Pinedale Church of Christ at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 27, with a lunch to follow at the VFW Post 4801.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to the Sublette Center, the American Legion Auxiliary or a charity of your choice.

Kristie Jo Alexander Slater

Kristie Jo Alexander Slater, though widely traveled, always kept her heart firmly in the foothills of the Grand Teton and Wind River mountains. Born Nov. 14, 1957, to Fred and Joann Alexander in Rock Springs, she grew up with the ranching life, and the spirit of the West was always a part of her.

Kristie spent her early years in Pinedale, attending Pinedale High School and graduating with high honors. She went on for advanced degrees, studying in Wyoming and Utah. During these years, it was her love of the West that brought her to work on ranches and guest ranches; often with her parents, grandparents and other family members.

Kristie's advanced studies brought her to travel and work with a number of international construction companies, where she was a highly regarded cost engineer. This career saw her traveling extensively in the United States and abroad. She lived and worked in England and South Africa. She has been featured for 22 consecutive years in "Who's Who, Businesswomen of the World."

While working with one of these companies in California, she met and married Jim Slater, who brought two children from a previous marriage. Kristie loved Kat and Rob, and was especially fond of her young grandson, Jackson.

Kristie's love of the western life was also horses and horsemanship. She became an accomplished rider at an early age, participating in barrel racing in quite a few rodeos. She was a lifetime member of the Houston Livestock Fair and rodeo, and served on the board of directors for two years.

For the past two years, Kristie and Jim have been living abroad in Johannesburg, South Africa. Kristie unexpectedly took ill and peacefully passed away on Saturday, Oct. 8, 2005.

She is survived by her father, Fred; husband Jim, stepchildren Kat and Rob; grandson Jackson; two aunts; one uncle and numerous cousins.

We will all miss our greatest love: our daughter, our wife, our mother and grandmother. "Our God has plucked the sweetest rose for his garden."

A memorial service will be held at a later date.
