Obituary for Susan Ruth McGarvin (Anderson)

Susan Ruth (Anderson) McGarvin passed in peace on November 6, 2018 at the age of 84. She will be dearly missed by her husband, Larry McGarvin, cherished by her five children Jeff (Kathy Tottis), Lisa (Danny Hoekstra), Lucinda, Melissa (Bill O’Melia), and Jillian (John Balow), and loved forever by her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She is in Heaven with those that preceded her in death including a grandson, Drennen O’Melia, and a baby brother she never knew.

Sue will be remembered for her smile, kindness, compassion, faith, and a deep love for her family. She was born on April 22, 1934 and grew up in Worland, Wyoming. Her parents were Dr. Lial and Alice Anderson and she was an older sister to Pat (Kaiser) and Andy (Lanny). She loved riding horses, reading, and spending time at the family cabin in the Big Horns. Sue attended nursing school at West Suburban Hospital in Oak Park, Illinois. After she became an RN, Sue returned to Worland where she and Larry McGarvin began dating and soon married on October 20, 1957. Sue was a nurse and doting mother while Larry attended dental school at the University of Nebraska. When the family moved to Lusk, Wyoming in 1963, Sue happily became a full-time mom. The family moved to Laramie in 1967 and to Gillette in 1981. In each community where she lived, Sue also found her church home and wonderful friends. She was involved in PEO, Christian Women’s Club, and Bible studies. Sue often sent recipes, articles, Bible verses, life tips, and jokes to family members. Sue and Larry were always connected to their second home in the Ten Sleep canyon and spent as much time as possible at “the cabin.” One of Sue’s favorite places was on the deck by the creek. Sue and Larry settled in Cheyenne in 2013.

More important than where Sue lived was the mark she left everywhere she was. Even in her final days Sue continued to make people smile--her love for people and the Lord emanated and was infectious.
Sue loved flowers and a celebration of life will be held the Saturday following Thanksgiving, November 24, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. at the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens in the Gathering Rooms.

Please consider making a charitable donation to the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens ( or Drennen’s Dreams (, a foundation that promotes pool safety and honors Sue’s grandson.
