Mary Ellen Schooley, 79, of Pinedale, passed away at her home June 25, 2024 with her family at her side. Mary Ellen was born January 3, 1945 in Afton, Wyoming to William E. and Idella (Michaelson) Yeaman. The youngest of four children, she joined her three older brothers William "Bud", Dee, and Jerry.

Mary Ellen worked in and served her community in several capacities. She worked at Skyline Movie Theater, Pinedale Variety Store, Barb’s Variety Store and for 21 years as secretary for the Upper Green River Cemetery District, where she also recently served on the cemetery board.

She enjoyed the beauty of her surroundings and her home where she liked to garden and tend to her flowers and property. She also enjoyed baking and cake decorating and was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Mary Ellen is survived by her husband Don; sons Donald Jr., Bill, and Eric (Rebecca) Schooley; two grandchildren Catherine Schooley (Doug Hills) and Jeffrey (Jordan) Schooley; and two great-grandchildren Aurora Milner and Kytan Schooley. She is preceded in death by her parents William and Idella Yeaman; and bothers Bud, Dee, and Jerry Yeaman.

Alberta McAndrews
Memorial Mass for Alberta Korfanta McAndrews July 27 in Pinedale (posted 7/7/2024)
Alberta "AlBe" Korfanta McAndrews passed away on Thanksgiving Day, November 23, 2023, in her home in Pinedale.

Alberta was the oldest daughter of Albert "Sunny" and Frances Korfanta, born in Rock Springs, Wyoming and grew up in Pinedale. She attended Pinedale Elementary and High School and continued her education at Loretto Heights College, Denver, CO and the University of Wyoming in Laramie. Growing up in Pinedale and her parents operating the Pinedale Drug, Alberta spent many of her junior high and high school days working behind the soda fountain making malts, shakes and scooping store made ice cream.

Married to Edward D. Boone from Frankfort, Kentucky, she and Dan had one son, Danner. Dan passed away in 1974 when Danner was just a young boy and Alberta continued to raise Danner in Pinedale while she taught kindergarten and 2nd grade in the Pinedale Elementary school. She was a devoted mother and caregiver to Danner prior to his death in 2019.

Alberta taught kindergarten and 2nd grade in the Pinedale Elementary school for thirty years, starting in 1972 until her retirement in 2002. Her students were from multiple generations of Pinedale residents, it was noted at her retirement that Alberta "gave her heart and soul" to the children of Pinedale. She thoroughly enjoyed the education environment and hosted many holiday parties for her teaching colleagues.

A faithful member of Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church, she became a Lector and Eucharistic Minister, a member of the Parish Council, served as president of the PCCW, served on the Building Fund committee and many other parish committees and frequently contributed her specialty dishes to church functions. She was always willing to fill a needed void.

Following her retirement from teaching Alberta joined a small group of women in Pinedale indulging in all things "sewing", quilting, table runners, wall hangings and numerous other projects. She enjoyed learning and sharing with her sewing friends. Her home was a changing showcase of many of her works, she was always "just because" giving her home a new/different look.

Alberta worked for Pinedale Properties which eventually led to her business of Pinedale Properties Caretaking Services.

She loved spending time in her yard, planting a variety of colorful flowers and shrubs. Being a long-time member of the Sage and Snow Garden Club, she helped plant many main street flower barrels and helped with the Waterwise garden plot.

Alberta loved to cook and try out new recipes, her recipe books noted those that passed her standard. Family and friends will miss the wonderful times as she took on hosting many family holiday dinners with invited guests.

Being a bit adventurous Alberta volunteered for alpine skiing events leading up to and during the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City.

Alberta is survived by three sisters, Fran Korfanta (Pinedale), Karen Korfanta (Heber, UT) and Deanna Larkin (Portland, OR), nephews Kevin Larkin, Tim Larkin (Darla), Sean Larkin (Lindsay) and Michael Larkin (Ashley). She is also survived by nieces, nephews, cousins, and many beloved friends. Alberta was preceded in death by her parents, husband (Dan), son Danner and faithful dog, Tucker.

A memorial mass will be held on Saturday, July 27, 2024, at 10:00 a.m. at Our Lady of Peace (OLP) Catholic Church, with graveside services to follow and a luncheon at the OLP Holy Family Hall.

Memorial contributions can be made in Alberta’s name to Kickin’ Cancer in Sublette County, PO Box 687, Pinedale, WY 82941, Our Lady of Peace Building Fund, PO Box 70, Pinedale, WY 82941, or to an organization of your choice.
