Alice Jolene Pangan (Wright)
Alice Jolene Pangan (Wright) left our family to join the Lords on June 9th, 2011 after a short but valiant fight with a short illness in Cheyenne, WY. She was my only sister but most important, my best friend. One of her greatest joys was that all of her immediately family was at her bedside when she was alert and appeared to be recovering from a stroke. She could still crack a joke with the best as her humor never left her. At her bedside was me, Maurine Herman(Wright), my husband Tim, her loving daughter Kay Linn Shelledy, her blessed sons, Alfred R. Stanbrough of Florida, Clifford Stanbrough of Michigan, and her beautiful granddaughter Cheyenne of Michigan. Unfortunately a little over a week later, God had other plans for my sister and she will be so missed. She also had 4 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild.
She had many great friends in Cheyenne, which included Sonny and Bea, Kathy, and Willie and Milly of New York. Before she retired, she worked at Cheyenne Regional Medical Center, where she was a telephone operator for several years. We would also like to give a very special hug of love to Milton, Tina Tacha and their family. They are our second family.
Jo grew up in Meade and graduated from Meade High School in 1954. She was well liked and had many friends in Meade. She was a proud band member and if my memory serves me correctly, the band marched in the Rose Bowl Parade. Forgive me if I got that wrong. Her and I both had the same 1st grade teacher.
Even though our ages were 15 years apart, as we became adults, we were not just sisters but best friends. She will be so greatly missed.
She was preceded in death by our grandparents, Uncle Cecil Wright and Aunt Helen Wright and by our parents Clifford Wright and Maxine Wright.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Schrader Funeral Home and online condolences may be left at www.schraderfruneral.com.
We would like to thank Life Care Center, Cheyenne Regional Medical Center and Davis Hospice Center for the exceptional care she received at all of the facilities. They went above and beyond in not only taking care of my sister, but also us.
The family will be having a memorial at a later date. Instead of flowers, the family wishes that any contributions be made to the Davis Hospice Center, 6000 Sycamore Road, Cheyenne, WY.8200
