THE BEST MOM A KID COULD HOPE FOR passed away on July 8, 2021, lovingly surrounded by her children and grandchildren. She was born in Montana, raised her seven children in Utah, where she inspired us to be successful adults. She often worked two jobs to provide for us and still gave us each quality time. A respected business owner, an amazing cook, (food was her love language) and a talented crafter, she was loved by many. A prolific reader, especially of the Louis L'Amour books, she enjoyed sitting at her kitchen table playing solitaire with a deck of cards, we could count on reaching her by phone daily to talk about anything, everything, or nothing. Finding great deals and treasures of almost anything was another talent, she had a keen eye and eagerly shared her finds. She loved the annual trips to Havre, Montana, to visit friends and extended family, she brought us children with her whenever she could, instilling in us the love for family. She created many friendships over the years, including the ones at Roberts Arts and Crafts where she worked for 17 years.
