A Celebration for Life service for Billie Mae Lindberg, 82, was held at 2:00 P.M. Friday, January 24, 2014 at the Douglas Senior Citizens’ Center, 340 West First Street, Douglas, Wyoming with Pastor David Dick officiating.
Billie Lindberg died Monday, January 20, 2014 at the Memorial Hospital of Converse County in Douglas.
Billie Mae Lindberg was born February 19, 1931 in Douglas, Wyoming the daughter of William C. Hall and Elsie Mae Hall Martinez, Billie was reared and educated in Douglas. Starting in the food industry at hometown favorite the Kandy Koop in 1956, Billie eventually relocated to California where she owned and operated her own restaurant for several years, after which she took time to be with her mother. In 1976, Billie returned to Douglas to care for her ailing father who passed away in 1977. Having found a new calling as a caregiver, she spent the last few years before retiring in 2004 caring for elderly clientele.
Always an independent spirit, Billie lived life on her own terms, and there was nothing she couldn’t do when she set her mind to it. A champion for those she loved, Billie would defend them beyond reason – right, wrong, it didn’t matter. Although she had no children of her own, she was a beloved Aunt to numerous nieces and nephews with whom her feisty spirit carries on.  
An avid pet lover, Billie enjoyed gardening, canning and raising chickens at her Douglas home site. But the people who knew her the best would tell you she took special delight in winning a game of cards, even though she encouraged us to not take advantage of another person’s losing hand!  She was a frequent volunteer and feared card player at the Senior Citizens’ Center.
Billie is survived by six sisters: Betty Hovda of Douglas, Wyoming; Doris Dennis-Walton of Cheyenne, Wyoming; Alice Alkire of Grand Forks, North Dakota; Edna Reese of Las Vegas, Nevada; Mildred Sparks of Sun City, Arizona; and Carolyn Templar of Flagstaff, Arizona.
She was preceded in death by her parent; her sister, Evelyn Grace Hall; seven nephews; and three nieces.
A memorial to the Douglas Senior Citizens’ Center P.O. Box 192, Douglas, Wyoming 82633 or to Infaith-An American Mission, P.O. Box 370, Villanova, Pennsylvania 19805 would be appreciated by the family.
The Gorman Funeral Homes – Converse Chapel of Douglas, Wyoming assisted with the arrangements.

Dear family of Billie Lindberg,
We had the pleasure of sitting at the dining table with Billie and her friends at the Douglas Senior Center most Mondays. I played the piano nearby and my husband ate lunch. We formed a nice acquaintance with all the ladies. We admired Billie for her "feistiness" and humor and willingness to do new things. We enjoyed her tales of the cruise and did a lot of laughing with her. We wish we would have known about her service because we would have attended. Please know she will be missed very much, and that she made a wonderful impression on us in the short time we knew her.
Sincerely, her friends, Gale and Bonnie Lane
