Anasteria “Louise” Kline, 90, passed peacefully at Central Wyoming Hospice after a short battle with cancer on October 1, 2021, with her loving daughter by her side.
Louise was born in Beatrice, Nebraska on July 16, 1931, to Mr. and Mrs. Louis Jim Collins.
Having lived most of her life in Casper, WY, she married Floyd H. Kline and then became the proud mother of Anna “Louise” Kline on September 08, 1967. Floyd and Louise later divorced. As a single parent, Louise continually devoted her time and energy to providing for her beloved daughter Anna.
Early on, Louise worked for Marshall’s Pancake House. Later, Louise specifically sought a job at Park Elementary School where Anna attended as a child. She dearly loved children and worked 33 years at Park Elementary School as a dedicated cafeteria assistant. In turn, children adored her as well, referring to her as “Miss Kline.” She also worked as a teacher’s assistant at Our Saviours Lutheran Preschool. She shared her love of children with her daughter; they worked together at the preschool and daycare for 9 years, enjoying their bond.
Louise was very fond of family and loved to spend time with them. She enjoyed getting together for Sunday dinner as often as possible.
Louise shined in her role as grandmother. Her grandchildren were “her everything.” In 1988, she welcomed Shad William Kline and in 1996, Seth Robert Pierce. Louise loved to take Shad and Seth on outings and especially reserved Parade Day for them as well as every evening of the Central Wyoming Fair & Rodeo; she doted over them and thoroughly enjoyed their company as they grew older too.
Louise was proceeded in death by her grandparents, parents, her brother and two sisters.
Louise is survived by her daughter Anna Kline (Justin Rodgers) her grandsons Shad Kline and Seth Pierce; her nephew Louis Jim Kirkendall (Celene); her great nephew Jim Kirkendall and great niece Chrissy Kirkendall; and other extended family.
Newcomer Casper Chapel has been entrusted with her care. Rather than a memorial service, Louise will be fondly remembered at a Celebration of Life, to be held at 5:00-8;00 p.m. on October 15, 2021, at Occasions by Cory, 303 S. Wolcott Street, Casper, Wyoming.
