She was preceded in death by her parents; and three brothers, Clyde Chambers, Tom McCrorey and Harry McCrorey.
She is survived by her son, Teddy Budell and family of San Diego; sisters-in-law, Carol Chambers of Bozeman, and Juanita Fallang of Big Timber; long-time and special friend, Paul Clouse of Belgrade; and numerous nieces and nephews.
