Funeral services for Stella Mae Osborne Blohm, 88, will be held at 2 p.m., on Saturday, June 26, 2021, in Cowley, Wyoming, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Mae Blohm died June 16, 2021. She was born June 28, 1932, at home in Garland, Wyoming, to Edward and Lillie Richards Osborne. She was the oldest of five children. Mae spent her childhood on the family farm in Garland. She had fond memories of the apple orchards there. Another fond memory was when her father, Ed, took a job as foreman of a sawmill on Carter Mountain for a short time. She loved that time there in a one-room school house. Later Mae would return to Garland and attend Powell High School, graduating in 1951.
She also attended Northwest Community College while working as a telephone operator. Mae was briefly married to David Malliot and daughter Connie was born. A few years later, she married Louie Blohm in 1962. Julie joined the little family a few years later.
She worked at Dude’s Cafe in Lovell, and very much enjoyed being a waitress. She took great pride in her customer service. Mae and Louie raised their family in Cowley, Wyoming. Mae had a big heart and often took care of other children. She loved her nephews, Shawn and Richard, and niece, Kayla. Her grandchildren have loving memories of their time at Grandma Blohm’s house.
Mae was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She and Louie were sealed in the Salt Lake City, Utah, temple.
Mae and Louie were most often remembered together riding to “town” in their red pickup. They spent their retirement years helping others with rides and acts of service. They enjoyed their time at the Lovell Senior Center and were a fixture there until their health declined. For a time, they both were in the New Horizon Care Center in Lovell, and were able to spend their last days together.
Louie preceded her in death in November 2020. Mae is survived by her two daughters, Connie (Greg) James, of Newcastle, Wyoming, and Julie (Kent) Stingley, of Powell; sisters-in-law, Barbara Osborne, of Billings, Montana, Edna Lucera, of Stockton, California, Lavern Clark, of Yakima, Washington, Lois Bernhardt, of Laurel, Montana, and Sally Blohm, of Laurel, Montana; brother-in-law Ray Blohm of Laurel, Montana; many nieces and nephews; eight grandchildren, and 20 great-grandchildren.
Her legacy of a big heart will be remembered by many.
