Lonna Alice Tolman, 86, of Worland, WY, died Wednesday, April 15, 2020, of congestive heart failure. She was born August 10, 1933 to William “Grandy” and Margaret “Gammo” Atkinson, in Worland. She was married to Marvin Tolman on October 22, 1951.
Lonna is survived by her daughter, Marla Tolman, son, Kirk Tolman, and her “bestest friend” of 40 years, Donnie Hampton, along with her brother William Wilson Atkinson, grandchildren Julie (Lonnie) Cox, Cameron (Jill) Roady, Danielle (Matt) Earl, Travis (Collette) Moore, Coy, and Raeth Tolman, great-grandchildren Reagann, Jaden, Marlee, Rylee, Tanner, Jade, Gavin, Addisyn, Sydnee, Brynlee, Maclee, Syler, Paige, Mason, and great- great-granddaughter, Hazel, along with numerous nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by husband, Marvin Tolman, daughter, Kimberly Tolman, brother, Harold John “Pinky” Atkinson, and grandsons, Vance and Justin Roady.
Lonna lived and loved the country lifestyle, growing up and attending school in Ten Sleep. Her favorite place to be was on the ranch, surrounded by her family, lambs, calves, puppies, and kittens. In her later years, she rarely missed any event that her grandchildren participated in, whether it was an athletic event or a concert; just this past fall watching Raeth perform in the Wyoming State Marching Band Festival in Casper. Lonna received great joy being around her great-grandchildren, having them help her cook or watching them play around the ranch.
Lonna lived a long, full life and will be sorely missed by all who knew her.
