Ellen Gwynn died May 8, 2019, at the age of 81.
She was born in Gebo, Wyo. (now a ghost town), on Nov. 10, 1937. Her parents are Milton R. Agenstine and Florence (McCallum) Agenstine.
Ellen grew up in Casper and was a proud graduate of Natrona High School. After high school she worked as a secretary for an oil company and was highly skilled in shorthand and typing.
She married Ed Gwynn on Feb. 16, 1957. Ed worked as a surveyor in the oil fields, so they moved around Wyoming several times in the first few years of their marriage.
They finally settled in Cody and raised their family there. They were blessed with five children: Eileen (Mark) Curdy, Martin (Diana) Gwynn, Tom (Julie) Gwynn, Dan (Brenda) Gwynn, Laura (Dennis) Decker; 22 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren.
Her family was her life. She was known to everyone as a great cook and an amazing homemaker. She always gave a listening ear and was a great friend. She loved to read and always kept her listeners spellbound with her story-telling abilities.
Ellen was an excellent pianist and blessed all who knew her with that talent. She instilled in her children a love of music and encouraged them in their learning at least one musical instrument.
Service to others was always important to Ellen and she gave selflessly.
Funeral services for Ellen will be 10 a.m. Saturday, May 18, 2019, in Cody at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints stake center, located at 1407 13th St. There will be a viewing prior to the funeral service beginning at 9 a.m.
