Linda would go to work at what is now First Interstate Bank retiring after a thirty-year career in 2015. She gave all she could caring for her parents in their last years. Linda, we thank you so much for what you did for mom and dad.

Mom was a strong woman. She loved so deeply but knew how to put the hammer down if she needed.  She knew how to make you laugh, she loved to reminisce telling stories about this and that. She loved to give gifts, giving happiness made her shine. She was the best grandma. Davyn was lucky to have her. We can not believe you are gone, but we were so lucky to of had you.
