Eva Mae was born October 19, 1929 in Okmulgee, OK, she was the daughter of Joe & Bertha West. She was raised and educated in Tulsa, OK. In 1946, the family left Oklahoma for the oil boom in Rangely, CO, and on July 28, 1947, she married Henry Leo Ficken. They moved to Casper WY in 1950. They had two children, a daughter, Patricia born in 1948 and a son, Joe born in 1955. She was a homemaker until 1963. She then went to work for Specialized Answering Service until Control Data Corporation opened in Casper, working from 1965 until 1975. She then retired until 1990, when she went to work for IDS Financial Services, retiring again in 1996.

She enjoyed traveling and spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren and her great-grandchildren. She loved bowling with her daughter & son-in-law on two leagues a week. At one point she was bowling four times a week in her late 80's.

She was the care giver for her husband Leo for many years as he was going through dementia.

Survivors include two children, Patricia (& Jerry) Jackson and Joe (& Marilou) Ficken; two grandsons, Shawn (& Denise) and Tim (& Erica) all of Casper; granddaughter, Shannon (& Louis) Rosenthal of Huntsville, AL; five great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandson.

Portraits by James J. Metcalfe

~In Memory of You~

I hold you in my dreams at night... I call you in the dawn...

And yet I have to tell myself... That you are really gone...

That you are gone beyond recall... Forever and a day...

And there is nothing I can do... And nothing I can say...

You were so wonderful to me... So gentle, sweet and kind...

It seemed that I was always in... Your heart and in your mind...

No, there is nothing I can say... Except a loving prayer...

That God will bless you, dearest one... and keep you in His care...

And in my silent sorrow there... Is nothing I can do...

Except to live a better life... In memory of you.
