Letha Mae Worley

July 22, 1923 ~ August 11, 2014

It is with joy that we celebrate the life of Letha Mae Worley. Born to the parents of Loyd Conrad Snyder and Mattie Deatta Snyder on July 22, 1923, in Broomfield CO. Letha was the last surviving child of 12 children; Archie, Frank, Loyd(Buz), Bob, Glen, Jack, Fred, Ruby, Sara, Betty and Ann. Her beloved son, Darrel G. and husband, Darrel B. also preceded her in death. Alzheimer’s stole her from us long before the disease took her physically away on August 11, 2014.

She is survived by her daughter-in-law, Shelley Worley; and grandchildren, Elizabeth and Greg. She had many nieces and nephews, and her longtime friends Alma and Liz.

She was an active supporter in the life of her son, Darrel, taking him to Sunday school and was a scout den mother, often including one little girl, Susie, much to the dismay of the boys in the troop. She was so proud of her son’s many achievements, full of encouragement and support going to as many games as she could. Letha worked at the packing shed in Monitor until her retirement. Letha loved fishing, gardening, crafting and crocheting. She was the world’s best cook, passing on her love for cooking thru much patience. I am so sorry that her last days were so void of her true character and her grandchildren will not have the memories that are so rich and packed in love, to those we knew she had in her earlier days. But to Elizabeth and Greg know this - you were deeply loved - you are her living treasure. She is with her savior now, and she stands before him complete, nothing missing, nothing broken. Hallelujah!

Please join us at Mile Post 111 restaurant from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., for a no-host lunch on Saturday, August 16, 2014, in Cashmere, to share stories and memories of Letha Mae Worley. Ward’s Funeral Chapel, Leavenworth is in charge of the arrangements.
