Angel Oedekoven-Craft is a 4th generation Wyoming Rancher with true love and passion for livestock and all animals. Angel grew up horseback and was active in 4-H and FFA. She competed in rodeos and was a high school rodeo queen and Wyoming State High School Rodeo Ms. Congenialty in 1985. Angel is a mother of two wonderful boys and a very proud “Granny” to seven grandchildren.
Angel has been a massage therapist for over 22 years, and although she retired in May of 2022, she doesn’t have it in her heart to completely give it up or quit 100% 😊
She is a bubbly, caring, giving soul and makes sure that no one goes hungry or without if she can help people and animals. One time in her kitchen and dining room will prove that and she can easily catch every horse at the ranch because of her kindness and loving personality.
Angel and her husband live on a ranch shared by her in-laws, where she helps with the livestock, farming, and haying. She is not afraid to be up before the sun in the swather or tractor and is a partner in her husband’s insurance office in Gillette, Wy. Her husband, Jon, jokes that she knows everyone in the county and the six surrounding counties, and they have never met a stranger.
She enjoys riding the family’s performance horses in her spare time and helping the grandkids learn the ropes. She is also a great support and sport for enduring many hours of her husband competing at team ropings. Any available moment with the grandkids is treasured and thoroughly enjoyed by both. They are excited that they have the opportunity to grow and learn about the country and its way of life. The goal is someday to pass down the ranch and life to the next generations, believing that there is NO better place to live and raise a family than the country. Angel loves inspiring and instilling the love of country life in the next generations in the hopes that they will share the love and enjoyment and want to be part of the greatest life.
