Wilda Gene Kutcher, 80 years young, was born in California in 1938, to William “Bill” and Hazel Irene Arnold. She was their only child. Wilda grew up in Avenal, CA and where she graduated high school.
Wilda loved all the places she lived, but when she moved to Wyoming in 1973 she found “home”. When she met and married handsome Jack Kutcher, a native of the state, she grew to love it even more. Her precious in- laws drafted naturalization papers and declared her to be a true Wyoming Citizen. After their marriage in 1978, they made their home in Bar Nunn where they participated in many capacities to help the town grow and succeed. They both loved their community. Wilda and Jack spent countless hours in the Big Horn Mountains, Red Dessert and many places in the state they loved. They also had many good times going on vacation to the California coast.
Wilda enjoyed the outdoors, birds, flowers, dogs, moose, and talking to people. She had different jobs through the years but found working with stained glass and teaching others was one of her all time favorites. She was one of the few who never met a stranger. She was always stopping people to give them a compliment and putting a smile on their faces.
This summer there will be a family memorial in the Big Horn Mountains where the ashes of Jack and Wilda will be scattered.
One of her final requests to her only daughter, Tomi, was not to have a crappy- long- winded obituary (her words). And so, all the things that could be said about her here, will be talked about by all who loved her most:
Daughter and Fun-in-law Tomi and Alanson Rawdon
Grandchildren: Gabriel Williams, Gabrielle Bradley, Timothy Williams (wife Rosa) and Amanda Williams
Great grandchildren: Keiaira, Siobhan, Catherine, Thomas, Patrick, Xander and Fox.
Sister and Brother in law Barb and Sheldon Sollars
Nephews: Mike Sollars (Rhonda), Mark Sollars and Matt Sollars (Keri)
Great Nieces and Nephew: Josie, Kassidy, and Jack
Her constant companion Dexter.
Many friends; old and not so old.
She is preceded in death by her parents, her son Allen Wade Williams, and her soul-mate and beloved husband Jack Kutcher.
