Fortney, Shirley  
Shirley Fortney Constance Shirley Sherrell Fortney, 92, of Scappoose, Oregon, formerly of Billings, Montana, passed away early Sunday morning, July 19, 2015. She was born November 23, 1922, in the Flathead Valley of Western Montana to Elsie and Guy Sherrell. Shirley graduated from high school in Ronan, Montana, then attended Kinman Business College in Spokane, Washington, which would be the basis for her secretarial positions through the years, including with the Montana Heart Assn. and Cenex.

Shirley was a devoted mother to two daughters, and often took on the role of single parent as Don travelled extensively with his work. In the early 1970's Don and Shirley moved to St. Paul, Minnesota, for Don's work, but health and retirement brought them back to Montana in 1974, this time to Billings. Shirley was preceded in death by Don in 1991. Survivors include her two daughters and sons-in-law, Charlene and Steve Zinsmeister of Scappoose, Oregon, and Carolyn Fortney and Dan Zirker of Hamilton, New Zealand; a sister, Phyllis Abbott of Longview, Washington; four grandsons, Nick (Carol), Zachary, Jared (Susan) Zinsmeister, and Ryland Fortney-Zirker; great granddaughter Anya (daughter of Nick and Carol); and numerous nieces and nephews.

French, Robert  
Robert "Bob" Lee French Lewistown —Robert Lee French died peacefully Monday in Lewistown, Montana at the age of 87. He is survived by his wife, Daryl Elaine Tadewald French of Grass Range/Lewistown, his four children, Grant French, Elaine/Keli Remus, Joan/Richard Adams and Janet/Terry Haughian, 8 grandchildren, and 2 great grandchildren. His parents, Lee and Agnes Longin French, his brother, John French, and infant sister, Marie French preceded him in death. Bob was born February 3, 1928 in Lewistown and graduated from Fergus High School in 1946. From July 1946 - July 1948, he served in the U.S. Navy as an electrician. He married Daryl in 1950 in Miles City, Montana. After working as an electrician in the mines in Idaho Springs, Colorado, he returned to Central Montana and managed his Grandfather Longin's farm at Danvers. In 1954, he and Daryl purchased the farm/ranch at Grass Range, Montana. Bob and Daryl raised their family in Grass Range and lived there until moving to Caslen Assisted Living Centers in Lewistown in September 2014. Bob was an avid learner and was very grateful for his farming and ranching mentors, Josef Nosek and Rudy Tadewald. He won the Montana Farm Bureau's Young Farmer Award in the 1960's for planting his crops in strips, using windbreaks for soil management, and testing new crops for the Montana Extension Service. He was passionate about farming and passed the love of the land to all of his children. He was a leader in beef genetics and imported Murray Grey cattle from New Zealand. Bob served as President of the Square Butte Grazing District for many years. He was honored to have served as President of the Grass Range School Board when the current school was constructed. He was extremely proud that all four of his children graduated from college. Bob played basketball during high school, loved watching his children play basketball, and was the scorekeeper for 35 years at the Grass Range School and the District and Divisional tournaments held in Lewistown. Bob loved his family and was delighted to have conversations with his children and grandchildren in the days before his passing as they were in town to celebrate Bob and Daryl's 65th wedding anniversary. There will be a Memorial Gathering at a yet-to-be-determined date with a notice in the paper. Memorial donations can be made to a charity of your choice.
