Deanne (Allred) Humpherys, 82, of Thayne, Wyoming, passed away peacefully on April 28, 2020 surrounded by her husband, and their eight children.
Deanne was born on December 4, 1937, in Afton, Wyoming. She was the sixth of seven children of Harvey Rich Allred and Margaret Lovina (Barrus) Allred. Deanne was raised on a farm in Fairview, Wyoming and graduated from Star Valley High School in 1956.
She married the love of her life, Jerry Ray Humpherys, on July 15, 1957, in the Logan Utah Temple. They lived for a time in Logan Utah where their first three children were born. In 1961 Deanne and Jerry moved back to Star Valley to work on and eventually take over the Humpherys’ farm in Thayne. It was on that beloved land that they raised their eight children with a strong sense of service, love, and an appreciation of hard work.
Deanne was a devoted and faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, holding numerous callings throughout her lifetime. She had a great interest and love for her pioneer ancestors and was proud that they served the Church for generations. Deanne’s reverence for the Church was equaled only by the love she had for her children.
Deanne’s legacy is profound and her influence will be felt for many generations. She spent her life in loving service and sacrifice on behalf of her children. Through her example, she taught her children to be faithful, hard working, and industrious. Her life’s work and glory is, and continues to be the success and happiness of her children. She is survived by her husband, Jerry Ray Humpherys, 2 sisters, 8 children, 35 grandchildren and 39 great grandchildren. Her children and their spouses are: Mark (Jann Lowe), Carolyn (Gerry Collins), Randy (Sally Roberts), Julie (John Baker), Brian (Gayle Gold), Jana (Brandon Burnham), Teresa (Mike Mitchell) and Michael (Julie Nishimoto).
A graveside service will be held on Saturday May 2, 2020, at the Thayne Cemetery.
