Vina May Logan, 87, of Laramie, went home to be with her Heavenly Father on August 28, 2016. She was born March 1, 1929 in Sargent, Nebraska to Albert and Pearl (née Finley) Oberg. On September 11, 1949, she married the love of her life, Dean W. Logan, Jr., at the Methodist Church.
Vina was extremely talented in many areas. She loved to sing and play the piano and guitar. She also played the organ for Grace Chapel in West Laramie for many years. Her hobbies included knitting, crocheting, woodworking, sewing, painting, and playing golf. She loved collecting teddy bears and always had a great sense of style. She made almost all of her own clothes.
Vina is survived by her two daughters, Laura Logan of Laramie, Jean Logan Johnston of Escondido, CA, and her son, Paul Logan of Beaumont, CA; fourteen grandchildren, twenty-five great-grandchildren, and one great-great grandchild. She is also survived by her sister, Donna Deti, one nephew, and one niece all of Clearlake, CA. She was preceded in death by her parents, Albert and Pearl Oberg, her husband, Dean W. Logan Jr., her eldest daughter, Barbara Louise Bonner, and her grandson, Cade Thomas Page.
As per her wish, no services will be held, but the family will have a private memorial at Bellamy Lake next summer. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her name to the National Guard Museum 624 E. Pershing Blvd, Cheyenne, Wyoming 82009.
Jean, Laura, Paul and the extended Logan family: I'm so sorry for your loss! Your mom was an amazing lady, and I really enjoyed reconnecting with her the past few years. She will definitely be missed, but I know how much she wanted to be with your dad, and now they're together for eternity! My thoughts, love and prayers are with you all! <3
Laura and family, It is so hard to lose mother and she looked to be the very best of mothers! My prayers are with you that God's great heaven will be even more real to you and you will have much comfort that mom is very much alive and you will see her again some day. Hope that all your friends in Laramie will be there for you too! Love, Margey and family in California.
Sorry to hear of your loss. I worked with Vina May at the High School and she was a wonderful person to work with. She also gave me advice about music and was always very helpful. She will be missed by all. Don Shoefelt
Jean, Laura and Logan Family Our heartfelt condolences go out to the entire Logan Family. With love Jacquie and Dewey Stickley
Vina May was a wonderful and very talented woman. I remember walking home after elementary school with Barbara to take my piano lessons from Vina May. How she found the time to do that, I will never know, as she was a wonderful homemaker for her large family as well as a talented hobbyist. She was such a beautiful woman, inside and out.
Laura, Jean, Paul, Bonner family We are saddened for your loss. One of my fondest memories is sitting around the living room with Vina May and Dean , sipping wine and talking after we completed the Wednesday night's national guard drill. Dean was a mentor to me, but I also learned a lot about life and relationships from Vina. My wife, Charlie, got to know both of them after we married, and enjoyed our visits, too. We both considered the Logan family as great friends, and will miss Vina very much. She was a beautiful and thoughtful lady. David and Charlie Wright Sheridan, WY (back from Alaska)
Laura and family, I am so sorry to hear your Mom has passed away. Having recently suffered the loss of my Mom and Dad I truly feel for your grief and loss. My prayers will be with you and your family. Marcia Pickett Gaudioso
So sorry for your loss thinking of you
Vina May was always so kind and generous to me; it meant and still means a lot to me. I so fondly remember making Christmas cookies with Barb and Vina May - a young, Hindu girl newly arrived from India. Your family welcomed me and included me in so many of your family activities - especially the sleepovers. Much love and thanks, Vina May. You will be missed by family and friends.
Laura & Gene, what a lovely tribute. I see where both of you get your beauty and style. I never knew your mom. I see now, that was my loss. May lovely memories tide you both through this difficult transition.
Grandma is deep in our hearts, and her example of kindness and unconditional love will continue to influence us for the rest of our lives. We will miss her so much. It is wonderful to think of what she is doing now, and who she is with. May God communicate our love to her, wherever she has gone. Surely wherever it is, it is better for having her there.
