Martha May (Juarez) Hassler, 63, passed away peacefully with her family by her side on Tuesday, May 25, 2021. Those fortunate enough to know her saw the light that she brought when she entered a room and the laughter that was never-ending; they felt the love that she shared with others, listened to some great stories, and they probably ate some of her delicious homemade food!
Martha was born to the late Barney and Mary Juarez, on May 12, 1958, in Wheatland, Wyoming. She was raised in Wheatland, where she married her best friend, Gary Dean Hassler, in 1974. They had two amazing and beautiful daughters, Brandy Lea and Michelle Santana. Martha eventually moved to Laramie, making friends everywhere she turned. She lived a simple, yet very satisfying life; she absolutely loved to travel, spend time with family and friends (old and new), she loved being “Grama Bone and GG” to her grandchildren and her great-grandchildren, and especially enjoyed the time spent with her niece Sally Loseke. She moved to Casper in March to be closer to her sister Lucy Lietz and niece, Kathy (Ray) Woodruff. The last few months were spent on lots of joy rides, trips to DQ, hanging out and laughing. She enjoyed her visits with her great nieces Anna, Aralynn, Karli, and Ellie, and her great-great niece, Addy. She appreciated everything that her sister Lucy and brother-in-law, Gary Liebelt, did to make her little home in Casper.
Martha was a hard worker; her jobs always involved others… she spent countless hours making drinks, cleaning houses, cooking, and making friends everywhere she went. She had a few jobs with the University of Wyoming that she loved… one of them involved top secret monkeys and the other involved making delicious meals for the young ladies of numerous sororities. The monkeys and the young ladies thought she was pretty awesome!!
Martha is survived by her husband, Gary; daughters, Brandy (Harvey) Cain of Wheatland, Michelle (Daniel) Porterfield of Sheridan; her grandchildren, Patrick and Brayden of Wheatland, Jaxon, Wyatt, and Owen of Sheridan; her great-grandchildren, Madisyn and Kraven, her brothers Arthur and Benny; her sisters Bonnie (Stan), Rita (Jeff), and Lucy (Gary), numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her father, her mother, her brothers Johnny and Carlos, her sister Phyllis, her very special granddaughter Mikayla, and numerous nieces and nephews.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 1:00 p.m., Sunday, May 30, 2021, in Wheatland, at the First State Bank Conference Center (1405 16th St).
In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made in Martha’s name to: Parents for Window Blind Safety, PO Box 205, Barnhart MO 63012 https://pfwbs.org/
