The world lost a beloved mother, Agnes Cuthill, 95, a Casper resident of 78 years, passed away Monday, November 8th, 2021 at Central Wyoming Medical Center.
Agnes was born Agnes Pearl Sadvar, to Mattis (Matthew) and Pearl Wimberly Sadvar in Craig, Colorado on December 12th, 1925. After her mother's death in 1926, she and some of her six siblings; Frank, Ella, Bill, Marguerite, Jack, and Betty were sadly split apart from one another and raised by separate families.
She married her first husband, Milan (Mike) McLain, in 1942 and shortly after he was drafted into the Army. Later they settled in Casper and had their son Jimmy who sadly drowned in the North Platte River at 12 years old. In 1966 they adopted their two daughters, Patti and Valerie. Her husband passed away of heart disease at 56 years old.
She later met and married the love of her life Alex Cuthill Jr, in 1977 at Evansville Christian Church. She often joked it was her famous ham hock and beans that reeled him in. After Alex’s retirement they bought a motorhome and spent several years touring around the United States and Southern Canada.
In 1997 they bought a retirement home in Yuma, AZ and for the next nine years divided their time between Casper and Arizona. Her husband passed away in July of 2013.
The world lost a beloved mother. When Agnes’s children were young, the phrase “stay-at-home-mom” didn’t exist. It was usual for women to stay home with the children while their husbands worked. But even by the standards of the era, Agnes was an exceptional wife and mother. She dedicated her life to her family.
Agnes’s family would like to express their deepest gratitude for the caring and committed staff of Meadow Winds.
Agnes is survived by her, Daughter - Patti Sue Cuthill of San Diego, CA, and grandson Richard (Nicole) Cuthill of Riverside, CA.
She was preceded in death by her Father, Mother, Husbands – Milan McLain and Alex Cuthill Jr, Son – Jimmy McLain, Daughter – Valerie Jean Creek, and her six siblings; Frank (Alma) Sadvar, Ella (RJ) Lott, Bill (Susan) Lacy, Marguerite (Ernest) Snell, Jack Hartford, and Betty (Hartman) Peter.
