Raelene (Shaw) Cowley lost her long, hard-fought battle with cancer at the age of 70 on July 4th, 2023. She was born on March 18th, 1953, the 11th child of Richard Lynn and Fern (Nordfelt) Shaw in Salina, Utah. Raelene grew up in Aurora, Utah attending local schools and graduating from North Sevier High School in 1971. Raelene married Trent E. Cowley on October 9, 1971, in Aurora Utah. Together they welcomed five children, who added 16 grandchildren to the Cowley family. Trent and Raelene lived in Salina, Utah until April, 1980 when they moved to Wright, Wyoming where they live today and call home. Raelene was very proud of her children and grandchildren she was always willing to help them when needed. She loved spending time with them and spoiling them all! She was also known and loved as “Granny” to many others around Wright. Raelene came from a large family; she had eight brothers and two sisters. She was the baby of the family, and everyone knew it! Her parents, eight brothers: Devon, Reed, Kendal, Theron, Wayland, Rondo, Rance and Brian. One brother-in-law Bryant Mickelsen and 2 sisters-in-law, LaDella and Suzanne Shaw preceded her in death. Raelene had a sparkle in her eye and a smile that will be missed by all of us. She was always willing to serve and help others. She taught us all very valuable lessons in life that we will cherish and hold those moments forever.
