Lacy Deanne Oyloe
April 23, 1985 - June 9, 2020

Place of Birth: Williston, North Dakota
Residence: Williston, North Dakota
Age: 35

Lacy D. Oyloe, 35 of Williston, ND, passed away on Tuesday, June 9, 2020 at Trinity Health in Minot, ND after an extended illness.

Lacy Deanne Oyloe was born on April 23, 1985 in Williston, North Dakota to Lyndon and Terri Oyloe. She attended grade school at Round Prairie School, followed by attending Williston High School. She then attended Dickinson State University where she obtained bachelor’s degrees in both Biology and Spanish. During the past 11 years, she worked as field epidemiologist in Williston for the North Dakota Department of Health and Disease Control.

One of Lacy’s greatest attributes was her gift of giving. She would do anything possible in order to see others smile and to spread happiness wherever she could. One example of this was learning how to crochet just to create her niece’s first Halloween costume. She then used this new hobby to create numerous gifts for friends and family over the years. No matter what she was gifting or creating, Lacy made sure it was perfectly thought out, down to each little detail.

Her love for animals was also apparent throughout her life. She grew up on the farm caring for various animals, including showing steers and sheep at the county fair. Lacy was always trying to bring home new animals to the farm. Her most recent additions were her horses, Bentley and Reggie. Recently she had spent a lot of time with her mom over at Ronnie’s barn helping care for and taking rides with his draft horses. Above all the animals in her life, the one dearest to her heart was her buddy, Riley.

Family was very important to Lacy. She loved spending time fishing, target shooting, and shopping online for them. UPS and FedEx definitely knew where her house was! One of her greatest joys was being an aunt to Sunday and Story. She adored watching their dance performances, passing on her love of fireworks and Shinedown, and even surprised them with their pony, Reggie, for Christmas. Lacy also loved talking about and working on her “dream pickup” with Dave and her dad. She enjoyed the time they spent together fixing up her 1960 Chevrolet Apache. Another thing that brought her great joy was setting up concert trips for her mom, sister, and Dave.

Lacy is survived by her parents, Lyndon and Terri Oyloe; sister, Melissa (David) Raugust; nieces, Sunday and Story Raugust; grandmother, Myrna Elletson; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Harold and Evelyn Oyloe and Lon Elletson; uncles, Richard Jambor and Wally Elletson.

I worked with Lacy the past 12 years. She was one of the kindest people I have ever met. I will surely miss our conversations about her two nieces. She was so fond of them and always enjoyed coming to Bismarck for staff meetings so she could spend time with them. Lacy had a tremendous impact on all who got to know her. I will miss her with all my heart. May she rest in peace.

When the doctors couldn't heal Lacy, God stepped in and said "Precious child, I will heal you", and He took away all her pain and suffering and brought her home. I can't imagine the pain of losing a child and I pray that one day soon, your pain and grief will turn into happy memories of your beautiful daughter.

Sometimes words fail me and this is one of those times. I’ve only had the pleasure of meeting Lacy recently but Lord, she had a smile that one would expect from an angel..

And now she is one.

Forget the pain and sadness and remember the smiles, the laughter, and the good times. For those were the gifts that Lacy gave us.

I bid you peace.

Lindy, Terri, Melissa and families: I'm so sorry to hear of Lacy's passing. Kathy called me to let me know. So much devastating loss in my old Round Prairie/West Prairie neighborhood since I left. I believe Lacy was 5 when I left the neighborhood. After seeing prayer requests through the West Prairie messages, I have inquired via the Alaethia Singers about her over the years. I was so sorry to receive Kathy's message on Wednesday. I pray for God to surround you with his comforting arms. How grateful I am, knowing you will see her again. God always gives us Hope. My prayers and sympathies.

To all of Lacy's family,
She was the kindest soul when I had first moved to Bismarck to work for Disease Control and I enjoyed every moment we got together. She knew how much i loved Eric Carle and got made my daughter the cutest hungry caterpillar hat and even found a 1st birthday hungry caterpillar onesie! We will always hold those photos so dear and know that such a thoughtful woman gave those to our daughter, which we saved and used for our next and put away for their children someday. Her support of Dave and his colleagues which included my husband was just one more thing to love about her. She will be truly missed by so many.
