She was born Aug. 11, 1896, the daughter of Olie and Harriet (Forbes) Edison. She was orphaned at the age of 5, and was raised by her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Forbes. She was reared and educated in Stillwater, Okla., and Nebraska. She was married to Roy A. Wampler in Carroll, Iowa, in September 1919. They lived on a farm in Iowa for eight years and then moved to Wyoming. They farmed for nine years in the Walker Creek Community, north of Douglas. They moved into Douglas in 1938 and then in July 1979 she moved to Michael Manor where she resided until the time of her death.

She was baptized in the Methodist church on March 14, 1926, in Iowa. She loved to crochet, cook, and do general house work.

She is survived by numerous nieces and nephews, including Arlene Eddy and husband, Larry, of Keeline, Wyo. and Fay Edison and wife, Sue, of Shawnee, Wyo.
