This section includes both obituaries and memories. Honoring our loved ones who have died does not end immediately after their passing. We recognize that… so we’re extending our obituary section to include individuals who may have left a long time ago. If you want to remember someone who is gone, either recently or longer ago, please send a photo and a few sentences to firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell us why you would like to honor the person–is it their birthday, the date of their passing or some other date of significance to you.

She was 55 years old. She married her high school sweetheart on June 7th, 1978.This marriage lasted 18 years from which she had five children: Jacob McMahan, Clayton McMahan, Richard McMahan, Lindsay McMahan, and Breeanna McMahan. She spent the last four years of her life with her fiance “Georgie” Sutherland.
Her loved ones who passed before her were her mother Betty Bingham, her father Ben Bingham, and her brother Doug Bingham. And, of course, her much loved Casey dog.

Some of the things she loved and enjoyed doing or being a part of were: Her Fiance Georgie Sutherland, her family (blood or not), and her dog Casey. She was also a high spirited woman who loved dance anywhere, but especially at the “Riverwood” and the “Angelina Inn”. She liked the feeling of the wind in her face and hair as she rode down the road on her Harley Davidsons. And just as much as any of these she loved to spend time with her grandchildren. She was a great cook, a school bus driver, a scrapbooker and a thriftonator. And she also enjoyed having a good time with friends and family, anytime anywhere.
There will be a celebration of life/ potluck to be held at Beginnings in Briceland on Saturday February the 13th at 1:00 pm. If anybody brings flowers, please no lilies. Mom couldn’t stand the smell of them.
