Helen Patricia Clayton

Helen Patricia Clayton, 93, passed away on April 12, 2021, in Fresno, Calif.

Helen was born at home on March 9, 1928. Her parents, Algot and Saimi Helene Ahlberg lived and worked at the Wyoming Tie & Timber Company in DuNoir, which was the company town located in the mountains above Dubois, Wyo. She and her siblings grew up at the tie company camp and attended its one-room school house.

As an adult, Helen and her husband, John Albert Clayton, lived near Morton Lake in Fremont County for many years. They re-located to Thermopolis over 50 years ago.

After retiring from the Wyoming Pioneer Home, Helen enjoyed having time to garden, visit with friends, and spend time with her daughter, granddaughters, and three great grandsons.

Helen resided in Thermopolis until recent ill health forced her to move closer to her family in California.

She is survived by her daughter, Susan (James) Fouch; granddaughters, Frances (Justin) Thompson and Emelia (Coby) White; and great-grandsons, Cameron, Derek, and Cooper White.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, John; infant son, James Albert; brothers, Ralph, Bob, Ole, and Hank Ahlberg; and sisters, Virginia May (aka Susie) Ahlberg and Margie Spaulding.

Cremation has taken place. No services are planned at this time. On-line messages may be offered at
