Alvina Christena Guy, 79, passed away suddenly on January 12, 2006, while working with friends on quilts for Lutheran World Relief.   She was born on June 18, 1926 in Hildreth, Nebraska to Jakob and Imkea (Westerbuhr) Weisshaar and baptized at Immanuel Lutheran Church, Hildreth. When she was four, the family moved to the Settlement Area, north of Bethune. She was confirmed at Immanuel Lutheran Church, Bethune in May, 1942.

Alvina married David J. Guy on December 9, 1945 at the Immanuel Lutheran Church, Bethune, Colorado. After his tour with the Navy was completed in May, 1946, they settled on the farm north of Bethune. To this union three children were born; Jerry, Grant and Linda. In 1968, they left the farm to follow road construction until David retired in 1985. They chose to return to the farm to stay close to family and friends. She is preceded in death by her parents.

She is survived by her loving husband, David; three children, Jerry Guy and wife June of Seibert, Colorado, Grant Guy and wife Rhonda of Kersey, Colorado, and Linda Rau and husband Tom of Collbran, Colorado. She is also survived by five grandchildren and five great grandchildren, Joe Rau and son Steven Magnuson, John and Rene Guy and children, Jeri Rose and Jakob, David Guy, Megan and David Underwood and children Mackinzie and D’artagnan, and Sam Trujillo. She is also survived by two brothers Lee Weisshaar and Harold and wife Esther of Burlington, Colorado.
