Myriah Marie Stinson, 42, passed away Monday, August 31st, 2020 at Monument Health in Rapid City, South Dakota, from injuries sustained in a car accident. She had courageously chosen to be an organ donor; because of this, a little part of her will continue to live on.
Myriah was born Saturday, October 22nd, 1977, in Douglas, Wyoming to Gregory Alan and Carolyn Ann (Rogers) Stinson. She was raised on the family ranch near Orin, Wyoming. She attended Douglas High School through the 10th grade, and graduated from Saint Scholastica Academy in Canon City, Colorado in 1996. Myriah then served her country as a medic in the United States Army. Upon her release, she received her college degree from University of Phoenix in Geriatric Health. At the time of her death, she was working at the Wyoming Highway Patrol Port of Entry in Gillette, Wyoming.
Myriah has two beautiful children; Eliza Marie (19) and Gregory Angelo (14), and two grandsons; Layne and Zayden who were the light of her life.
She was a free spirit who loved the outdoors and was happiest when she was in the mountains or at the lake. Her heart was overflowing with love for animals, especially dogs. She always had a special connection with all of her pets, including many bum lambs and calves on the family ranch.
She was a true Patriot. She loved her country and the wide-open spaces of her home state of Wyoming. Myriah was an avid Denver Bronco fan, and she loved her Wyoming Cowboys.
Myriah was very strong willed and liked to do things her way. She had a beautiful smile that will be remembered by all who knew her.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents; Kenneth and Virginia Stinson of Palisade, Nebraska; and Dennis and Phebe Rogers of Douglas.
She is survived by her children, Eliza (Garrett) of Riverton, Wyoming and Gregory of Divide, Colorado; grandsons, Layne and Zayden; parents, Greg and Carolyn Stinson of Spearfish, South Dakota; sister, Natalee (Nick) Brace of Douglas; niece, Maddie of Douglas; special friend, Clint Hoffman of Gillette; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and her many friends.
