Johanna Cecilia Bertagnolli Mau, age 86, joined the ranks of the angels when she journeyed home to be with her beloved husband, Bill, her daughter, Peggy, her grandson, Ricky, her parents and brother and sister.
Johanna died on Sunday, August 13, 2017 at South Lincoln Medical Center in Kemmerer.
She was born on June 24, 1931, in Rock Springs, to Richard Joseph and Rosie (Tayo) Bertagnolli.
Johanna was an inspiration on how to live one’s life to all who knew her.
She ran the race well. She has crossed the finish line. We will cherish her forever.

Johanna was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She enjoyed cooking and gardening.
She was a devoted member of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, and most of all, she was a sheep rancher’s devoted wife.
Graveside and rosary services will be conducted on Monday, August 28, at 10:00 a.m. at the South Lincoln Cemetery in Kemmerer with Father August Koenue as the celebrant.
