Tori Lynn Rollins

Tori Lynn Rollins lost her courageous battle with cancer, surrounded by her family on November 29, 2021, at Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center in Colorado sixteen months after being diagnosed with Synovial Sarcoma Cancer. 

Tori was 23 years old; born on July 10, 1998, at Hot Springs County hospital to parents Justin and Elaine Rollins. The Rollins family lived in Thermopolis briefly before moving to Manderson, Wyo., in 2000 where she grew up and went to school. Through hunting, fishing, and FFA Tori found her love of the outdoors. She was also an athlete and participated in volleyball and basketball through middle school and high school. Tori graduated from Riverside High school in 2017 with honors. Tori's love of the outdoors and animals encouraged her to pursue a degree in wildlife biology from Sheridan Community College where she received her associate's in 2019. After graduating from Sheridan College, she moved to Laramie to continue her education at the University of Wyoming as a secondary science teacher. Tori met the love of her life, Keanu Campbell, in 2018 and got engaged in August of 2020.

Tori's diagnosis of cancer put her education on hold as Tori and her family started navigating the treatments ahead. Every moment lived by Tori was with grace and compassion. All that knew Tori were inspired by her selflessness, strength, and courage.

With all of the love of her family and friends, she will be truly missed, and we wait for the time when we will be reunited once again.

Tori is survived by her mother and father, Justin and Elaine Rollins; sisters, Kassie (Matt) Craft, Chancey (Blake) Nelson and Sasha (Jake) Bare; brother, Samuel Rollins; five nieces, and nephews; grandmother, Kaletta (Chuck) Kerstiens; fiancé, Keanu Campbell; three beloved cats; and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.  

A Celebration of Life will be held at the old Riverside High School Gymnasium on Tuesday, December 14 at 1 p.m. The family has decided to give back to one of the Cancer foundations that helped Tori throughout her fight with Cancer. If you would like to contribute in Tori's honor please donate to the Washakie Hospital Foundation/Cancer Fund, P.O. Box 700, Worland, WY 82401. Arrangements have been entrusted to Veile Mortuary.
