Obituary for Marjory Anne Ryan

Marjory Anne Ryan, 76, passed away Nov. 30, at the Davis Hospice Center in Cheyenne. She was born Mar. 12, 1941, in Riverton, WY. She was the 11th of 12 children born to her parents, Arthur Bernard Ryan and Marion Rebecca McDiarmid Ryan.

She was an educator, a gifted photographer, a world traveler, and an active volunteer in her community. Marjory taught two years in Casper, WY; 18 years at Eastridge School in Cheyenne; and 23 years at Anderson School in Cheyenne. She always taught second grade. She loved teaching this age group and said “It is great fun teaching children 7 going on 8 as they have such great talent and an eye on the future!”

Marjory was an innovative teacher who promoted a “Bookworm” club which spread the excitement of reading by the students performing a number of musical productions each year. She also started a computer typing program for second graders, which was a big hit.

Marjory was a member of the Wyoming Educational Association, the National Educational Association, the Retired Teachers Association, the KKI Teachers Honorary, St. Mary’s Guild, AARP, and the League of Women Voters.

Marjory was predeceased by her parents, seven brothers and two sisters. She is survived by her sisters, Mary Lou Heinzinger of Helena, MT, and Jean Oxley of Laramie, WY, nine nieces, seven nephews, and many great nieces and nephews.

A funeral mass will be held at 2:30 pm on Thursday, December 7th at St. Mary’s Cathedral at 2107 Capitol Avenue. A reception will follow the service at Hartman Hall.

In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be given to Needs Inc. [900 Central Avenue, Cheyenne, WY 82007] or to St. Mary’s Catholic Guild [P.O 1268, Cheyenne, WY, 82003].

Interment will be at Greenhill Cemetery, in Laramie, WY, at a later date.
