In early July of 1990, Wayne and I came to Lyons to build our dream house on property we purchased in 1985. As is well known, Lyons became Wayne’s town and he did come to stay. He worked hard for Lyons and was well honored with the fountain in Sandstone Park being called the Wayne Werner Fountain. I still hear new tales of things he did. The people of Lyons were so good in aiding me when Wayne died so suddenly. I even was called by name and not referred to as
“Wayne’s wife.” The time has come for me to move on. I cannot be doing all the driving to my activities and taking care of such a big house. I was involved in an accident in Lyons the end of April and had to be hospitalized and attend rehabilitation. I am doing well and recovering. I had to leave Lyons as I am unable to drive for several months and am now living in Longmont, as the house has been sold. I will miss the friendly and caring people and the beautiful scenery. Lyons was a wonderful town to live above. Wayne and Kathleen, our daughter, are resting in Lyons quaint cemetery. It is time for me to say so long (not good-bye) and many, many thanks to all of you for your friendship, kindness, and caring.
