Hilary Larson McIntosh peacefully passed away on Sunday, Aug. 30, at her home in Cokeville. Hilary was born to Stanley and Eileen Larson on May 21, 1979, in Montpelier, Idaho. She started her general education at Cokeville Elementary until the family moved to Torrington in 1990. She finished her education at Lingle-Fort Laramie High School, where she shined in volleyball, basketball and track, breaking many school records. Hilary graduated in 1997.
She continued her love for sports and attended Northwest College in Powell on a scholarship for basketball. She returned to the family ranch, later earning an associate’s degree from Eastern Wyoming College in Torrington.
In 2003, the family returned to Cokeville, where Hilary lived for the remainder of her life. In 2009, she married the love of her life, Woodrow McIntosh. Together they acquired many kids — horses, dogs, cats and cattle. Hilary loved animals and was especially proud of her herd of cattle she built up by taking care of bums and raising and naming them all. Hilary’s happiest days were spent on the back of a horse and being outdoors.
