Barbara Jean (Jamieson) Sundeen, 73, passed peacefully on April 3, 2010, at her home in Bozeman.
The Guest Book is expired.
Barb, also known as Jamie to her friends, was born Jan. 15, 1937, to Harold and Margaret (Borst) Jamieson in Moline, Ill. Barb was a graduate of Moline High School in 1955.
In 1963, Barb married Frank T. Sundeen, originally of Orion, Ill. They settled in Moline, Ill., and raised their two children, Curtis Jay (Kristina) of Big Sky, and Cathryn Marie (Adam Hubel) of Missoula. After retiring, Barb and Frank sacrificed many great friendships in Moline to follow their children to the northern Rocky Mountains where they settled in Bozeman.
In Moline, Barb enjoyed volunteering during the Quad City Open and the John Deere Classic for 25 years. In Bozeman, she was a member of the Gallatin Empire Garden Club of Bozeman, Gallatin Valley Newcomers and Bozeman Senior Center.
Barb was a loving and caring daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, aunt and friend. She loved gardening, sewing, golf, travel and camping, but especially loved spending time with her family and friends.
Barb is survived by her husband and children; granddaughters, Emma and Lila of Big Sky; sister, Judy McSparin (Denny) of Marshall, Mo.; brother, Bill Jamieson of Moline, Ill.; nephews, Alan (Terry) of Kansas City, Mo., Patrick (Sara) of Kansas City, Mo., and Brett (Lisa) McSparin of Blue Springs, Mo.; and great-nephews and -nieces, Tyler, Dan, Grant, Brenna and Quinn.
