Graveside services for Marlys Bias will be held at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, June 4, 2022 at Mountain View Cemetery.
To summarize a Life of 86 years is very challenging. Marlys E. Allbert Bias was born April 15 1935 in Speed KS., to Ralph & Matilda (Tillie) Allbert. She was the sister to Olyn W. Allbert & Sister-in-Law to Jane Murray Allbert. All were at one time residents of the Riverton area.
The family relations in Ellis KS Region included Walz, Glass, Aust clans.
Marlys was married to Elwood “Jack” Bias and a companion to Leo Lemmel after Jack’s passing.
Marlys passed on 9-11-2021 at her home in Carlisle PA, that she shared with her niece, Cathy Allbert Luckie and nephew-in-law, William Allen Luckie. She is survived by Cathy & Allen Luckie, great niece, Cody Byrnes, great niece, Autumn Allbert and great nephews, Forrest and Ashton Allbert.
She moved from Riverton to Carlisle in November 2017. Up until 2021, Marlys thrived independently in her own apartment. She was involved with the Quilts of Valor to make quilts for veterans. She made over 150 quilt tops for them. She attended weekly meeting at the local Friendship Senior Center and she enjoyed her daily walks.
Marlys had many talents ranging from Quilter, Crafter, Master Gardener, Global Traveler, Genealogist, Naturalist, Bird Watcher & Supported the local library. Her favorite piece was called “Quilt Diva” an homage to her alter ego.
Her final work of quilt art took over 57 years to complete. She purchased the embroidery squares of each state and its state flower in 1963. She completed in March 2021. The resiliency to see a project thru over a half century speaks of the though Wyoming Woman that Marlys was.
Marlys will continue to live in the Hearts of those who truly loved this amazing woman. May be gone from this life, but never gone from our wonderful memories. Rest in Peace our Love ….
