Jun 16, 2017 - From staff reports

Lila L. Hursh of Riverton died at her home Tuesday, June 13, 2017. She was 60. Services are at 2 p.m. Saturday, June 17, at Davis Funeral Home in Riverton.

Lila Lee Frog was born Nov. 4, 1956 in Riverton to Joe Manuel and Shelia Vada (Washakie) Jaure. She grew up in Riverton.

She was baptized into the Catholic faith.

She worked as a manager for the Marriott Hotel Chain overseeing food service, traveling the country with her job. She moved back to Riverton in the early 1980s.

While in high school she was a cheerleader and baton twirler. She continued to be able to twirl and do the splits all her life. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. Loved ones said she was always willing to help anyone in any way she could.

For the last few years she was disabled and lived near her nephew and his family, who took care of her. The family said Casey Jaure and his wife, Angie, "were so wonderful taking care of her and that their children, Faith, Gabi, Shyla, and Carmen were just like grandchildren to her."

Lila Hursh is survived by her daughter, Heide Hobson of Idaho; son Richard Hursh; brothers Dewi Jaure, Joe Jaure, Eddie Abeyta, Ted Abeyta, Monte Jaure, Mario Jaure, Tony Herrera and John B. Herrera; sisters Linda McIntyre and Yolanda Fletcher; numerous grandchildren; close nephews Casey Jaure, Levon Jaure, and David Burt.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Sheila Abeyta; son David Oliver Hursh; brother Jesse Jaure; and stepfather Ed Abeyta.
