Online condolences may be made at www.harnessfuneralhome.com Beverly Diane Masters Hiza was born on November 12, 1930, at the hospital in Sheridan, Wyoming because her mother did not trust the oil heater in the home where the newborns were kept when born in Buffalo. She passed after having had a long enjoyable conversation with her husband and longtime friend, Michael John Hiza, Jr, who she loved very much and was married to for just shy of 62 years. Beverly loved Wyoming and was proud of her heritage. Her grandfather, Charles Nicholas Walters, came to Wyoming in 1884 when it was still a territory, starting a freight line to supply Buffalo. He married her grandmother Margaretha B. Lindemer in 1891, and raised Beverly's mother, Margaret Walters in Ucross and Buffalo. Her father, David Duard Masters, was born and spent his early years in Hope, North Dakota. After his father's death, David, with his mother, and surviving brothers, homesteaded in Kaycee, Wyoming. David would meet, and later marry Margaret. He moved to join her in Buffalo, to start a family there. Beverly earned her degree in Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Colorado, and started as a school teacher in a tough and disadvantaged part of town, where she was deeply engaged with the children who adored her. She married a former classmate, then Marine Corp. Lieutenant Michael J. Hiza of Pueblo, Colorado, on September 7, 1953. He departed for Korea shortly thereafter. Remaining in Quantico, Virginia she gave birth to her son Michael in the navy hospital there. She returned to Boulder, Colorado while Michael, her husband, was overseas and would stay in Colorado for the next thirty-six years. Her daughter was later born in Boulder three years to the exact day of her son's prior birth. Beverly joined the League of Women Voters, State of Colorado in 1960. She was State President and was on their National Board. She worked closely as an advisor with three-term-Governor Richard Lamm, from January 14, 1975 to January 13, 1987. Beverly worked on the development of the Children's Code and the Mental Health Code. She was on The Boards of State and Federal Manpower Commissions, and worked to implement the Head Start Program. She was recognized with various national political honors for her accomplishments. Beverly and her husband traveled extensively, attending scientific conferences with their friends and associates. Michael, her husband, became a noted scientist and they had very close, life-long friends in this community. She loved art and had a fondness for Native American culture. She was passionate about wildlife and conservation. She was a philanthropist with modest means and always gave of her time and money. She was an active participant in many causes and never sat on the sidelines. She loved wildlife and enjoyed living in the Bighorn Mountains. Beverly moved back to Wyoming in (1989) to take care of her mother. She helped raise all of her grandchildren at one time or another. She always worked to support her community, and that was true of her later years in Wyoming, as well. She was an active member in the following organizations: Story Garden Club, Story Advisory Board, Historical Society, PTO, Basin Advisory Board for Powder/Tongue/Little Horn Basins, Powder River Basin Resource Council, Wyoming Outdoor Council, No Road Action Committee, Fort Phil Kearney. Beverly Diane Masters Hiza is survived by her children: Margaret Mary Hiza Redsteer and Michael David Hiza; grandchildren: Aiden Sinclair Redsteer, Robert Wayne Redsteer, Shondiin Marie Redsteer, Anthony Michael Hiza, and Nicholas Alexander Hiza.

McCullough, James - Sheridan  
James McCullough, 79, of Sheridan, passed away on Friday, May 15, 2015, at his residence surrounded by his family. He fought a short battle with lung cancer,with courage and strength. Jim was born on November 30, 1935, in Hagerman, NM, to William Faye and Hettie McCullough. He grew up on the family farm in Hagerman with seven brothers and three sisters. After high school, Jim enlisted in the U.S. Army and served as a paratrooper in the 81st Airborne from 1958 to 1960. Jim worked for Peabody Coal for most of his life. While working in Oklahoma, Jim met the love of his life, Betty Jo Parker. They were married in Gallup, NM, on May 3, 1965. Jim's work in the coal industry took them to Illinois, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah. In 1971, he and Betty moved to Sheridan, WY, where they would live for the rest of their lives. Jim would leave at dawn for work, but came home still energized to maintain a stunning yard and beautiful flowers and vegetables. Whenever his children played sports across Wyoming, he drove in all kinds of weather to attend the games. He loved to hunt, camp, travel, and snowmobile in the Big Horn Mountains. He also spent many summer days driving his jet boat, with kids in tow on inner tubes, on Lake De Smet, Tongue River and Yellowtail Reservoirs. He instilled honesty, loyalty and humility in his children, nieces, and nephews. His support of, and love for, his family was unmatched. His faithful companion, Cheyenne (his beloved German Shepherd), traveled with him to work and play for 16 years.

He leaves daughters, Mary and Tom Patterson, Donna McCullough and Wyeth Friday, Tracy and John Will; sons, David and Anne Robinson, Mark and Kerry McCullough, and James and Michelle McCullough.

Meeks, Jerie Ann - Sheridan  
Jerie Ann Meeks was born at home to Viola and G. Arnold Miller on October 15, 1940 in Bozeman Montana. She spent much of her childhood as a "South Dakota princess" making many memories of Sioux Falls and Mitchell. Her parents returned to Montana, resettling in Billings where she completed high school and graduated from Eastern Montana College with a BS in education. She met and married James A. Meeks and had two children, Blake E. Meeks and Margaret (Meg) Donohue. Jim died in office as Yellowstone County Sheriff in 1972. Jerie then met and later married Kermit Krokker, spending the next 41 years being his best friend and lover. For several years they lived on North 32nd in Billings, where she offered a safe refuge, support and guidance for over 50 children and rookie adults in her basement apartment. She completed a MS in special education with honors from EMC during this time. In 1982 Kermit found employment with the VA Hospital in Sheridan and Jerie established the guidance program for elementary and middle school students in Ranchester Wyoming. She made her home in Sheridan, falling in love with the beauty of the trees, streams and mountains for the remainder of her life. She is survived by her husband, a son Blake, his wife Katrina and their daughter Ellie of Butte, a daughter Margaret (Meg) Donohue, husband Dan and their daughter Maddie and her husband, Aaron, and two great grandchildren (Leona and Josie)of Twisp, Washington. Three years ago, to her great surprise and infinite delight, she was contacted by her unknown stepson, Piikalama Boiser, conceived by first husband Jim(a Pearl Harbor Survivor) while he served at Pearl Harbor at the beginning of the war, who, with his wife Noeau, has fit right into the family. She is also survived by her beloved siblings; David Miller (Diane), Evelyn Moyer, Willa Lewis (Bill), Will Miller (Esther,) Spencer Miller (Brenda) and Lois Norwood; and their children and grandchildren. She leaves behind many devoted friends and partners in adventure; Sue Traher, Deb Tedstrom, Ana Schultz and Lucinda Staufer (Lina), apologies to those I forgot to mention.As Jerie said," Walk toward the sun and the shadows will be behind you", and "If in doubt do the loving thing." Her wisdom and guidance will be missed and she will continue to be an inspiration to us all. When you die people will not care what kind of car you drove or the size of your house or how much money you had, but what makes a life important is that you made a difference in the life of a child. A gathering of friends and family and celebration of a life well lived will be held on the Bighorns on July 5th, directions provided on request. Online condolences may be written at  www.kanefuneral.com. Kane Funeral Home has been entrusted with arrangements.

Morris, Willy (Willis Wayne) - Sheridan  
Willy (Willis Wayne) Morris passed away after complications from a stroke on May 13, 2015. He was born on the Morris homestead on Dutch Creek, February 13, 1926, to Ebben and Winnie (Story) Morris. He was the 5th of 8 children. He graduated from Sheridan High School in 1943. As Willy related the story, he could not wait to join the Navy to defend his country and see the world. He was chosen for officer's school and purposely flunked the officer's test. His commanding officer was aware that he could have easily passed it and threatened him with discharge. He wanted hands on defense of his homeland. He got his wish and served aboard the USS Spangenberg DE-223, chasing German subs from 1944-1946. He returned to Sheridan after the war and worked for Wyoming Automotive in several different towns in Wyoming. On January 10, 1948, He married Barbara Brookins. They made their home in Sheridan and in the spring of 1961, Loren and Dot Butler and Willy and Barbara Morris opened the original NAPA Auto Parts Store on Grinnell in Sheridan. Willie and Barbara divorced in 1965. Willy maried Ruth (Shaffer) Green on November 25, 1965. They continued with the business until Willy's retirement in 1991. He had a great love for his community, as shown by his dedication to the YMCA, WYO Theater, Sheridan Senior Center, Elk's Lodge, American Legion and others. Being chosen to participate in the Honor Flight to Washington D.C. For WW II veterans was what he called, "A once-in-a-lifetime deal." Ruth and Willy's retirement consisted of winters in their home in Mesa, AZ, and summers in Sheridan, where they spent every opportunity they could to be in the Big Horn Mountains that were a part of Willy's soul. Willy was preceded in death by his parents, six brothers and one sister. Survivors include his wife, Ruth; one sister-in-law, Nina Morris of Mesa, AZ; and several nieces and nephews. Marcia (Dallas) Mitchell-four grandchildren, six great-grandchildren and one great-great grandson; Scot Morris-twograndson and 3 great-grandsons; Sherrie (Jim) Harries- three granchildren and five great-grandchildren; Ray (Laurie) Green-two grandsons and one great-granddaughter; Rick Green-two grandchildren and two great-grandsons; and Jaci Hicks. Willy's wishes were to have no formal funeral of any type but to have his ashes spread on a favorite bluff in the Big Horns. Memorials in his name may be made to the YMCA, 417 N. Jefferson Street, Sheridan, WY, 82801. A Memorial reception will be planned at a later date. Online condolences may be written at  www.kanefuneral.com.
