She was employed by 1st Interstate Bank for over 9 years. She met her husband Darrell Poisson in 1985. They married in May of 1988 and started a family having their son Darrell Poisson Jr of Casper in 1991.

She was preceded in death by both of her parents and is survived by her husband Thomas Hool Jr. of Casper, her son Darrell Poisson of Casper, her sister Kathy (Greg) Gabrielson of Casper, and brother Robert Reister of San Bernardino, Calif..
She had a little girl passion for animals. Her dream of owning a Wild Mustang came true and she spent many an hour with her boy “Cisco”. She felt that horses are best in pairs so she later adopted her second mustang “Donkey”. There was never a No Vacancy sign when it came to an animal in need. She and her husband adopted numerous animals and developed a knack for restoring abused and neglected animals to prime health. Her earth bound fur kids Donkey, Mocha, Miss Kitty, Bobby Kat, and Gizzy will miss their mom.
When she was not working with her four legged fur kids she could be found photographing Wild Mustangs in their natural habitat. She would spend hours comparing notes with other photographers on wild horse family bands, especially those in the Adobe Town HMA.
Services will be held later this spring.
Arrangements are entrusted to the care of Bustard & Jacoby Funeral Home , 600 CY Avenue, Casper, WY 82601
