Miriam Elizabeth Crymble

May 10, 2013 - Staff

Miriam Elizabeth Crymble died Thursday, May 2, 2013, at her home in Evanston. She was 92 years old.

A memorial service will be held at a later date in Riverton with arrangements made by Davis Funeral Home.

Miriam E. Crymble was born July 4, 1920, in Salida, Colo., the daughter of Lloyd and Esther (Johnson) Sage.

She graduated from high school in Salida, Colo, and married W.H. "Hugh" Crymble on Nov. 30, 1939, in Salida, Colo. They made their home in Cheyenne for 10 years where they had three children: Bill, Ken and Ruth.

The couple moved their young family to Pavilion in 1949 where they owned and operated the Pavillion Garage until 1960. The family moved to Riverton in 1960.

Mrs. Crymble worked as a dental assistant with Dr. Harold Macon for many years, where she enjoyed her service to Dr. Hal and their patients until she retired in 1982. Never one to sit still for long, she returned to the workplace as hostess and bookkeeper at the Broker Restaurant and later for Guthrie Jewelry as a sales clerk.

She was active in the Riverton United Methodist Church where she served in many capacities and was a member of the United Methodist Women's group. She was a lifetime member of the Order of the Eastern Star and a member of the Daughters of the Nile.

Her family said she will be remembered by many for her sense of adventure, smiles and caring service to others. She enjoyed reading, playing bridge and pinochle, crocheting and spending time with her family. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren have special memories of camping trips and special outings with their grandma and grandpa.

She is survived by her sons, William L. "Bill" Crymble and his wife Judy of Clay Center, Kan., and Kenneth H. "KC" Crymble and his wife Sandy of Lincoln, Mont.; daughter Ruth E. Dahlman of Evanston; seven grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; sister Virginia Smith of Thermopolis; and Robert Sage of Centennial, Colo.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Hugh Crymble, and her parents.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Uinta Home Health/Hospice (Evanston), Kalif Shrine Travel Fund or to a charity of the donor's choice in care of Davis Funeral Home in Riverton.
