DeMaris Ann Middleton


May 9, 2019

DeMaris Ann (Doyle) Middleton passed away with family around her on May 4, 2019, at the Crook County Hospital in Sundance, Wyoming.

DeMaris was born July 19, 1941, in Rapid City, South Dakota, to Robert and Iris (Howie) Doyle, the eighth out of 11 children. They moved to Casper, Wyoming, while she was a young child. She attended Roosevelt Elementary, Dean Morgan Jr. High and Natrona County High School.

She met the love of her life, Lee Middleton, at the Wagon Wheel skate rink when she was only 14 years old. They married two years later and begun their lives together on May 16, 1958. They soon started adding to their family with their four children, Terri, Shari, Casey and Corey.

In May of 1974, they moved the family to Sundance, Wyoming when Lee and two partners started Energy Electric Company. She worked at Decker’s Food Center and Crook County Senior Center as the outreach worker, retiring in 2007.

She enjoyed researching genealogy with her brother Mike. Even when her mind was slipping, she could tell us about our lineage clear back to the revolutionary war.

Her greatest joy was her family. She loved spending time with her children, 13 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren with another due in August. DeMaris was preceded in death by her parents; nine brothers and sisters; grandson, Jordan Gose; great-grandchildren, Sam Elder-McFarland and Morgan Billingsley.

Left to celebrate her life are her husband of almost 61 years; children, Terri Smith of Douglas, Shari (Kevin) Gose of Sundance, Casey (Tammy) Middleton of Mills and Corey (Kim) Middleton of Sundance; 12 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren; her sister, Patricia (Dan) Kelly of Casper; and many nieces and nephews.

Funeral services will be at 10 a.m. on Friday, May 10, 2019, at the Sundance United Methodist Church with burial to follow at Mt. Moriah Cemetery in Sundance. In lieu of flowers, a memorial has been established to Crook County Senior Services.

Arrangements are under the care of Fidler-Roberts & Isburg Funeral Chapel of Sundance. Online condolences may be written at
