Apr 5, 2013 - Staff

Marjorie (Marge) Ricketts Reynick died Saturday, March 30, 2013, at Shepherd of the Valley in Casper after a lengthy battle with heart disease. She was 83 years old.

Cremation has taken place, and memorial services will be at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 6, at Bustardé─˘s Funeral Home.

Marjorie (Marge) Ricketts was born April 5, 1929, in Hudson, the youngest daughter of coal miner Pierce (Pinky) and Edna Leora (Carroll) Ricketts.

At a young age, after the death of both of her parents, she went to Casper to be raised by her aunt and uncle Grace and John Campbell. She was educated in Casper.

She met and later married Bernard Galbreath on Sept. 11, 1947. They had three children and divorced in 1963. On Sept. 13, 1965, she married Eugene Reynick. They divorced in 1975.

She worked in many places in the Casper area, including the Credit Bureau, Control Data, Montgomery Wards and Sears. She also managed the Story Food Mart with her second husband and his family.

Although she wasné─˘t a real churchgoer, she had a lot of faith in her family and in life. She wanted her family to be happy and enjoy all the good times they had.

Her family said she loved to do crafts, puzzles, sewing and above all, she loved the Big Horn Mountains and people. She always felt really fortunate to be around to see all of her grandchildren grow up and have families of their own. Her family always had a special place in her heart.

She is survived by her daughters, Linda Smith of Wheatland and Karen Mead of Casper; five grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; brother Maurice of California; various nieces, nephews and cousins; and her little dog, Cinni.

She was preceded in death by her parents; three brothers; two sisters; one foster sister; one great-grandson; and two infant sons.

Memorials in Mrs. Reynick's name may be made to the Casper Humane Society or Central Wyoming Hospice.
