Dru and Tawny Roberts
Dru Myron Roberts was born in Jackson Hole, on June 15, 1949, to Dick and Leona Roberts. He was the oldest of six children. Tawny Jo was born on November 5, 1951, in Shelley, ID to Merlin Fransden and Mary Jean Issacs. She was the youngest of three children. She was raised on the banks of Rawlins Creek in the Blackfoot River Mountains of Idaho. Tawny always loved the ranch lifestyle and even when young she knew she wanted to marry a rancher and raise children doing what she loved to do. Dru and Tawny had three children: Tracy, Justin and Deena. Dru was a rodeo cowboy for years competing in local rodeos. Dru and Tawny sold their cows in 1998 and went to strictly cowboying ever since then. They primarily worked for Bill and Colin Barney, but also day rode for other ranchers throughout Sublette County. They have moved cattle from south of Big Piney to north of the Hoback Rim. They pastured cattle in the summers on their own place. Tawny’s integrity and mannerism with livestock and people made her a popular choice to become a Wyoming Brand Inspector. Dru died in 2022. Tawny continues her ranch work.
