God took one of his angels home, on November 30, 2012, Emily (Jarmillo) Stickney went home to her Lord and Savior. She passed away at Close to Home Hospice surrounded by her family.
Emily Stickney was born in Cerro, New Mexico on September 6, 1935, to Adon and Celina (Archuletta) Jaramillo. She was the fourth of nine children.
Her family later moved to Spotted Horse, near Gillette, Wyoming where she attended school. Emily graduated in 1954, from Campbell County High School. She also took nurses aid training and was employed by Pioneer Manor Nursing Home. Emily met her husband, Howard Ralph Stickney, and they married on July 19, 1952.
They were married for 34 years until his death in 1986. They had two children together, Linda and Julie. That wasn't enough for Emily. Her great love was children, and she took many nieces and nephews into her home. When her sister, Mary, passed in 1979, she loved and cared for her children; Chaeli, Lisa, and Claudia.
Once they were grown she became a foster parent. She did this for 26 years and received an award in 1999 for her years of service. She had a special gift with all children but especially those most in need physically or mentally, so that is who they would send to her safe and loving arms.
Emily was a member of the First Assembly of God Church and brought the children up to love and know our Savior Jesus Christ.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Howard Stickney; her parents, Adon and Celina; her brother, Joe; sisters, Rose, Mabel and Mary; niece, Lisa McCue, whom she cared for until her passing on April 4, 2010.
Emily is survived by her daughters: Linda (Sam) Trujillo and Julie (Duane) LaVallie all of Gillette, Wyoming; her nieces: Chaeli Jaramillo of Gillette, Wyoming, Claudia Iacovetto of Newcastle, Wyoming; her sister, Vivian Balgheim of Gillette, Wyoming; brothers, Leroy Jaramillo, of South Carolina, Floyd of Riverton, Wyoming and Adon Jr., of Thayne, Wyoming; seven grandchildren; 18 great-grandchildren; one great-great grandson; and several nieces and nephews.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Emily's name and sent in care of Gillette Memorial Chapel, 210 W. 5th Street, Gillette, Wyoming 82716 or condolences via the internet at www.gillettememorialchapel.com.
