The Guest Book is expired.
Belle grew up in Staples, Minn., and graduated from Staples High School in 1940. She owned and ran several restaurants in Crosby, Minn., over the years, as well as working at the Hanna Mining Operations, First National Bank, Heritage Foundation, and the Salvation Army.
After she retired, she became a foster grandparent in the schools.
Never one to sit around, Belle enjoyed playing bridge and cribbage, giving coffee parties for her friends, and hosting her famous St. Patrick's Day dinners.
In 2004, Belle moved to Three Forks to be close to her daughter, Mary Jo. She became active in Holy Family Catholic Church, Headwaters Heritage Museum, and the Bozeman Senior Center.
Belle leaves behind her loving family: Mary (Tom) Bentz and grandchildren, Luke (Anne) Bentz of Three Forks, Suzie (Erik) Jens of Yuba City, Calif., Sandra (Derial) McCaw of Sutter, Calif.; great-grandchildren, Elsa, Ava, Anya, and Nate Bentz; Heidi, Nick, and Travis Jens; Maci, Shelby, Katie, Hannah, Matthew and Molly McCaw; her sister, Lorraine (Hoemberg) Spencer; sister-in-law, Loretta Hoemberg; her special Middleton girls, Patty Miller and Penney Johnson; as well as many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, three brothers, two sisters-in-law, one brother-in-law, and her former husband.
Thank you to those caring for her at Pathways Assisted Living and Rocky Mountain Hospice.
A Funeral Mass was held May 23 at Holy Family Catholic Church in Three Forks. Her final place of rest will be in Staples, Minn.
