2 I The Lovell Chronicle I September 11, 2014 East detour to move to Kansas next week BY DAVID PECK er last week estimat- ing that the Main Street de- tour might jump two blocks from Montana to Kansas this week, officials for the Lovell Main Street Project now say that jump will like- ly take place mid-week next week. The west detour did move from Idaho two blocks to Great Western Tuesday night last week, a two-block move necessitated by the median strip remaining in place around the sugar fac- tory corner, which doesn't allow large trucks to make the turn at Hampshire Avenue. Wyoming Dept. of Transportation Resident En- gineer Ben Steed said Tues- day that work is wrapping up from Shoshone to Kan- sas, which vdll allow the de- tour to move two blocks west from Montana. Officials had earlier decided to not move the detour to Shoshone Ave- nue because of the presence of school children walking two and from school on that major street. "Most of the roadway concrete is done," Steed said. 'e do have sidewalks and pedestrian ramps to complete." DOWL  engi- neer Azldrew Mattie said at Tuesday night's town coun- cil meeting that the Wilson Brothers crew is working on water and sewer lines be- tween Jersey and Idaho this week, with the Reiman Corp. concrete crew a block or two to the east. He said the proj- ect is running two to three weeks behind schedule. "It's slated to finish the first week in November and is probably going to go over that," Mattie said. 'l]ae weather will be a factor for the concrete. The contractors are doing a good job." Mattie said Wilson Brothers has been putting in stubs to several homes so their service lines can be up- dated in the future. '%Ve're finding a lot of things that are surprising, including a couple of lead lines," Mattie said. During Tuesday's week- ly public meeting, officials noted that work to grind Main Street will start by the end of the month, pos- sibly Sept. 29, Steed said. Also taking place in the next couple of weeks is pav- ing the side street asphalt where the streets intersect with Main. Resident Earl Lukkes came to Tuesday's meet- ing to say that more cracks have developed at his home at 290 Shoshone Ave. Engi- neers went to the home to look at cracks following the meeting. Also at Tuesday's meet- ing, Lovell councilman Bri- an Dickson asked project leaders to limit work at the Western Motel to one access route at a time so guests can enter the property.

Edward (Edd) L. Meier Feb. 10, 1944 - Sept. 5, 2014 Edward L. Meier, known always as Edd, was born in Lovell, Feb. 10, 1944, to Harold and El- sie Meier and died in Bill- ings Sept. 5, 2014, of an ex- tremely rare disease that attacks the body's muscles and which affects only six people in a million: Inclu- sion Body Myositis. Though not feeling well since March after receiving heart stents, his disease wasn't diagnosed until Edd finally went to the Univer- sity of Utah Medical Center on August 15. While nor- mally a slow moving dis- ease, Edd's was the excep- tion, leaving many stunned by his passing. Edd grew up on the family farm in Kane, Wyo., graduating from Lovell High School. He was a master mechanic who not only could fix anything but could also tell people how to fix things in a way they clearly understood. One of his proudest accomplish- ments was teaching a total- ly deaf young man how to become a master mechanic, no small feat since he knew no sign language. Though retired, un- til shortly before he died farmers were calling him to ask how to fix machinery or were having him "stop by" to show them. Living in the Powell area, he worked first for John Deere, then for T&E Caterpillar out of Billings as the Wyoming Field Mechanic. Lured by the Arizona weather after a visit to fam- ily in Tucson, Edd then be- came the shop foreman for Empire Caterpillar in Tuc- son, Ariz., retiring in 2012 and moving back to Cow- ley to be near children and grandchildren. With the same meticulousness to de- tail that he applied to being a mechanic, he soon, with Zo helping, had a lovely home with beautiful land- scaping outside of Cowley near the high school. Being very industrious, besides advising and helping farm- ers and creating a lovely home of his own, he also found time to help his chil- dren with projects such as extra bathrooms and other things. In 1976, Edd married Zo, each bringing four chil- dren to the union and creat- ing a family of eight. While he loved his work, the joy of his life was doing things vdth his family. He partic- ularly loved camping, fish- ing, boating, snowmobiling and riding the Razor with his family. He would even make getting wood fun for his children. One of his greatest joys was getting his family together for hol- idays, making them very special. Edd is survived by four siblings: Dolly Dewing, Adelle (John) Lewis, Gary (Elanore) Meier and Don- ny (Lynn) Meier. His sur- viving children include Steve (Cindy) Meier, Shan- non (Maggie) Meier, Ran- dy Meier, Christy (Steve) Banks, Steven (Meadow) Scheeler, Debora (Brent) Hibbert and Todd (Ju- lie) Scheeler. There are 24 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. Edd was preceded in death by his parents; a brother-in-law, Dick Dewing; a brother, Eugene, who drowned at age 2; a son, Darren, who died at age 2 days; and a daughter, Toreasa, who died at age 10 after complications from a kidney transplant. Funeral services for Edd Meier will be held on Friday, Sept. 12 at 10 a.m. in the Cowley LDS Church on Main Street in Cowley. Interment will be in the Lovell Cemetery. Rose Davis Wenstrom Aug. 16, 1965 - Sept. 6, 2014 Rose Davis Wenstrom was born in Sheridan on Aug. 16, 1965. She was born to an English woman and a cowboy, which shaped her entire life. Rose was raised in Sheridan and Parkman. In 1986 she married Kev- in Gaskin, who enlisted in the Navy. To this union two beautiful children, K.C. and Grace, were born. They were divorced in 1999. Rose became a single mother. Those years were both dif- ficult and wonderful. In 2007 she mar- ried Don Wenstrom, who changed her life forever. To their marriage Lilian Rose was born. She was the joy of their lives. Life was focused on family and love from that time on. Rose loved being a stay-at-home mom and was able to return to that voca- tion when she married Don. Rose was always dedi- cated to her children during her years as a single moth- er. She worked around baseball and volleyball so K.C. and Grace could par- ticipate. They traveled all over the country to games. Rose put together the Deaver Festival, which brought bands, arts, food and much excitement to the community. Rose was diagnosed with cancer in early July. There were many trips to Billings for treatment. The cancer took her life on Sept. 6, 2014, at 2 p.m. at the age of 49. Her family's hearts are aching for their beloved mother and wife.
