A memorial/graveside service for Guyla Tritle was held on Tuesday, May 19, 2020, at 2:00 p.m. at the Winner City Cemetery. Mason funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.
Guyla was born September 13, 1922, in Plainview Township on the family homestead to Guy and Ruby Cahill. She attended Plainview Rural School and started school at age five because she and her sister Echo did not want to be separated. She attended rural school through the eighth grade and graduated from Winner High School in 1939.
After high school she worked at the Fashion Shop in Winner. In 1942 Guyla and her two sisters, Echo and Chic moved to Long Beach, CA, where Guyla worked at Cal-Air Construction. While there Guyla met Ralph Tritle who was serving in the Navy during World War II.
After the war Guyla and Ralph returned to Winner, SD and were married on November 9, 1946. To this union two children were born, a son, Steven and a daughter, Tracy. Guyla’s main love and focus was raising her children and helping on the family farm. Tracy inherited her mother’s love for animals and Guyla enjoyed going to exotic animal sales and miniature horse and donkey shows with her daughter. They often came home with a new addition to add to the animal family.
Guyla loved to cook and as a result acquired a huge collection of cookbooks.
Guyla was a member of the American Legion Auxiliary and BPO Does.
