Obituary: Mary W. Klarén
November 9, 1940 - October 9, 2019

On Wednesday, October 9th, 2019, we lost our dear Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt and Friend, Mary W. Klarén. She passed away with her oldest son David beside her, and her Grandson Palmer and Granddaughter Kirsten there moments later to hold her hand and say goodbye. While this was a shock to us all, we know that she has gone home and that she is was her parents and her brother and many others that have gone before her, that will be rejoicing and welcoming her with open arms.

Mary was born on November 9th, 1940 in Bertrand, Nebraska. She was the oldest of 5 children and spent her childhood living and working on their farm and helping to raise her younger siblings Liz, Stan, David and Katherine. She attended grade school in a small one-room schoolhouse. She then continued her high school education in Bertrand, where she graduated in 1958. After graduation she moved to the Pinedale, Wyoming area for the summer to work with her sister Liz. Mary worked for Norm and Mim Barlow at the Bar Cross Ranch in Cora, Wyoming. Later her whole family joined her, moving to Pinedale also. In the fall of 1962, she met and fell in love with Bob Klarén. They were married on May 16th, 1964. They had 3 boys together; David, Michael and Brian. Unfortunately, after 36 years of marriage Mary and Bob divorced, but she continued on, as was her way, despite her sadness.

In 1975, Mary went to work at Faler's General Store in Pinedale and worked there for the next 30+ years. She loved her work and worked very hard at everything she did her whole life. She always had a smile on her face and took time to visit with the customers. Mary loved everyone and loved being out among the community, visiting, helping and sharing with all those she came in contact with. When Faler's was sold, she was heartbroken, but being the trooper that she was, she stayed working at Ridley’s, the new store. After a year she continued her working career at Obo's Market and Deli. After leaving Obo’s, Mary worked at Boondock’s Pizza in the kitchen. She spent her last working days at Rendezvous Pointe, working for Sue Eversull who loving cared for her.

Mary leaves behind her 3 boys (as she always loved to call them) David K. Klarén, Michael D. Klarén (Jennifer) and Brian R. Klarén (Khrishna) as well as 4 grandchildren; Palmer D. Klarén, Kirsten D. Klarén and Vivien D. Klarén (children of Michael and Jennifer) and Hunter B. Klarén (son of Brian and Khrishna). She also leaves behind her 2 sisters Liz (Rollie) Howey and Katherine Sandsness, her brother David Weniger, and nieces and nephews Melanie Howey, and Doyle and Dana Sandsness. Her younger brother Stan proceeded her in death in1986 and her parents Edna (1973) and Howard (1976).

Mary has always been a farm girl at heart. She loved to be outside working in her garden, or her yard, or just walking from place to place cleaning up as she went. She loved animals and had horses and sheep around her house as well as a few cows that she kept a close eye on at the ranch. Mary also enjoyed cooking and baking for her family, and Oh... she made the best apple, pumpkin and rhubarb pies. Mary loved her family very much and always remembered to call on everyone's special days. She always had a "little something", as she called it, for birthdays and holidays. She was a loving kind person who tried her hardest every day to be the best person she could. Mary was one of the hardest working people we know. She will be greatly missed by us all.

We will have a memorial service on Wednesday the 16th of October, 2019, at 11:00 a.m., at Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Pinedale, Wyoming. It will be followed by a graveside service and a luncheon back at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church. Anyone who would like to come say goodbye to Mary is welcome to attend.

Archaeology talk in Pinedale Oct. 15 (posted 10/12/19)
Dr. Rick Weathermon will give an update on six 1000-year-old skeletons found near Pinedale in 2007
The Upper Green River Basin Chapter of the Wyoming Archeology Society (WAS) will be having a meeting on Tuesday, October 15th, at 6:30 pm at the Museum of the Mountain Man in Pinedale. There will be a short business meeting followed by a presentation by Rick Weathermon. Everyone is welcome. Please invite your friends.

PRESENTATION: "Violent Confrontations in Western Wyoming during the Late Prehistoric Period" by Rick Weathermon, University of Wyoming

In 2007, six approximately 1000-year-old skeletons were found on the Morrell property one mile west of Pinedale while digging a leech field. Previous research indicates two female adults, one male adult, and three children from 6 years old to infant. Rick has done extensive new research on those remains which will be part of this presentation. For more background see Human Skeletons Found Near Pinedale, Ancient Human Remains Found, and An Update on Bones Found Near Pinedale.

Violent confrontations between individuals and groups are apparent during the early Late Prehistoric period in the western Wyoming area. Multiple individuals documented in western Wyoming exhibit traumatic injuries, with a lack of defensive wounds on some suggesting capture and subsequent execution. Importantly, these individuals share a distinct cluster of skeletal characteristics. Similar conflicts are also evidenced during this same time among established horticultural groups in the American southwest along the southern and eastern edges of the Great Basin. Extended periods of drought likely placed stresses on human groups in and around these areas during the Medieval Warm Period, leading to population shifts. Changes in projectile point styles, ceramic technologies, and rock art in this same timeframe suggest that Numic groups were expanding into Wyoming, potentially replacing earlier Numic groups, or possibly Fremont culture related peoples. 48SU6440 (The Morrell Site) adds significant information to the interpretations of this violent period in Wyoming.

Rick L. Weathermon is a Senior Research Scientist at Department of Anthropology at the University of Wyoming. He received his B.A. with honors in Anthropology in 1990, M.A. in Anthropology in 1996, and Ph.D. in Anthropology 2011 from the University of Wyoming. Mr. Weathermon joined the Department of Anthropology as an Assistant Academic Professional Research Scientist in 1996. He serves as the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) Contact, with half of his time devoted to Physical Anthropology and half to Archaeology. His primary activities consist of NAGPRA compliance, archaeological and human osteological laboratory instruction, and collections access and maintenance. Rick is focusing on perishable technologies. His research interests include bioarchaeology, historic and prehistoric use of the Black Hills of South Dakota and Wyoming, experimental archaeology, and bison ethology. In his spare time, he enjoys roaming the hills with his family, antique weaponry, and documenting sabretooth rodents of unusual size in Black Hills field camps.

Bridger-Teton National Forest plans prescribed burns near Big Piney, Wyoming (posted 10/11/19)
Bridger-Teton National Forest
The Bridger-Teton National Forest is planning to conduct a prescribed burn on the Big Piney Ranger District in the next few days.

Fire managers expect to begin ignitions on the Cottonwood II prescribed burn on or about October 17, 2019, if weather and fuel conditions are favorable. This is the last unit in the project and approximately 45-acres will be burned. Earlier this spring, 80-acres of this unit were burned as prescribed. The burn unit is located approximately 20-miles west of Daniel, WY on Sjhoberg Creek on the north side of North Cottonwood Creek drainage.

Objectives include, increase aspen stand regeneration, reduce conifer encroachment, increase forage conditions for wildlife habitat and reduce hazardous fuels build-up while restoring fire-adaptive ecosystems. This vegetation treatment is an interagency cooperative effort with Bureau of Land Management, Wyoming Game & Fish Department, Sublette County Unified Fire and Teton Interagency Fire.

Actual ignitions for these burns will depend on meeting strict parameters for weather and fire behavior conditions. Smoke will be visible in the immediate vicinity and may be seen from Hwy 191/189 during the ignition phase and for a short time after lighting has been completed. No closures are anticipated with this burn.

For more information on this prescribed burn and other fuels projects, visit https://www.fs.usda.gov/main/btnf/home In the center of the page enter your email address and then submit the request. You will then be able to choose what news release topics you wish to receive.
