She met her cowboy and life-long partner, Jess at one of these dances at The Corral in Gallatin Canyon. They were married in June, 1949 and they had three children. Joan was a professor in the Modern Language Department at Montana State University from 1947 through 1989 and as an adjunct professor into the mid 90s.

Anceney, Rita Yvonne  
Rita Yvonne Anceney died on June 18, 2015, after a five-year fight with ovarian cancer. She was 66. Rita was born to Ernest and Ann Gould on July 10, 1948, in Kansas City, Missouri. She attended Harry Truman High School on Independence, Missouri, and she worked in the Kansas City area until 1980, when, at the request of her future husband, William Anceney, she moved to Denver, Colorado, and began a long career as a Landsman in the oil industry. Rita married William L. Anceney on Dec. 31, 1988, at his family home in Big Sky, Montana. She immediately fell in love with all things Montana, and loved to float the big rivers and hike the mountains of the Bozeman area. Rita was an avid sportswoman who was constantly playing golf or tennis and skiing whenever possible in the winter. Rita was able to retire very early and spent the last 22 years of her life visiting her favorite places: Key West; Monterey Bay for golf; Napa Valley; Italy. She especially loved the long summer vacations visiting her father-in-law, Chuck Anceney, at his home, always staying long enough to see the Bobcat opening football game before returning to Denver. Rita loved everything about Montana State, especially the Bobcat football games. She never missed a Bobcat – Grizzly game, and when attending the Colorado University - M.S.U. game in September 2006 was ecstatic with their victory. She lived a good and varied life which was cut short by cancer. Rita will be missed by her many friends, and especially by her husband, William L. Anceney, who is her sole survivor. Rita will be buried in Soldiers Chapel following a memorial service which will be held on Saturday, Aug. 8th at 1 p.m.

Lapinski, Duane David  
Duane passed away July 17, 2015, at his parent's home in Dallas, Texas. Born June 5, 1960, in Hazleton, Pennsylvania, he grew up with his family in San Jose, Reno and finally Bozeman. After graduating from Bozeman Senior High school in 1978, he spent a couple of years at Montana State University. However, they weren't teaching what he wanted to know so he went off on his own collecting knowledge wherever he could find it. Those who knew Duane remember how he loved to debate on a load of topics and found it often a losing battle. Duane's encyclopedic knowledge, remembered to the minutest detail, proved always right. On the rare occasion of a "closing time" stalemate, he would go back to the books and reopen the argument, perhaps even years later. Duane could be a rather trying individual but never lost his childlike thirst for knowledge. He, in many ways, never really grew up and his nephews relished his visits because he spoke their language, often being more comfortable with children than adults. We'd like to think that Duane liked to travel because he disappeared for several years. We would get reports of "Duane Sightings" from friends and family all over the country. When he tired of his travels, he would show up at one of our houses for an extended stay until he either decided to go or we would boot him along his way. Not to discount Duane, he almost always paid his way by fixing things or just helping out (generally on his pay scale and time clock). Duane left his family with a vast estate of knowledge, stories and examples of selfless service; enough to last generations. Duane is survived by his parents Joan and Norman, three brothers, David, Blaise and Joel, sister Maura, plus multiple nieces and nephews. At this time no services are planned. A gathering for Duane will be announced later this summer.

Rash Jr., Weldon Robert  
On July 26, 2015, we lost our dear friend and brother Weldon Robert Rash Jr. Weldon, "Junior" to his family, was born in New Plymouth, Idaho, Jan. 19, 1931, to Weldon and Iris Rash. He attended school in Menan, Idaho. After school he joined the army, serving for three years. Weldon retired from Schlage Lock Co. after 20 years. In 2002 he moved to Bozeman to be closer to family. He is survived by two brothers, Keith and Eric Rash of Twin Bridges. We remember him as an adventurous spirit who loved traveling the world, taking in all kinds of art and music, hiking and working out at the gym, and exploring new restaurants. He loved the outdoors, mostly fishing on the rivers of Montana. His openness and generosity helped him make friends all over the globe. A connoisseur of the performing arts, Weldon enjoyed the symphony, opera, ballet, and theater. Weldon will also be long remembered as a generous philanthropist and patron of the arts.
