Charlene's Obituary

Charlene Tamietti, 82, passed away peacefully in her home on Friday, October 30th, 2020. She was born August 7, 1938 in Butte, Montana to Charles and Stephanie (Crnich) Bogetto. 


Charlene went to St. Lawrence school and graduated in the class of 1957 from Girls Central High School. She married to James Tamietti on July 2nd, 1956 in Boulder, Montana and lived in Butte, Montana where they had their three beautiful girls, Susan, Lou and Jamie. 


Charlene was a 4-H Leader in her younger years. She was also a cook at Ramsay School for 8 years, a cook at Raymond's Supper Club, worked at Winter Garden Bowling Alley and was a tremendous housewife. If there was one thing you knew about Charlene, it was that she would always speak her mind and tell you how she felt. She was an avid bowler and enjoyed bingo, fishing, golfing, watching sports on TV, camping and celebrating with her friends, family and "Birthday Club".


Charlene met her "Special Friend", Frank "Biggs" Jovick in 1993 and they spent 27 fabulous years together. Biggs was cherished by all of Charlene's family. 


She could be found traveling, partying, and "raising hell" with her close group of friends turned family.  Her daughters always remember that, despite not always being eager to go, Charlene went to all of their rodeos and made her own fun out of the day. 


Charlene is survived by her three daughters and son in laws; Susan and Scott Leibenguth, Lou and Don Clark, and Jamie and John Martin. She was beloved "Nana" to her grandchildren; Gayle (Clark) and Brian Holm, Kelly and Kurt Solari, Jay and Amy Clark, Kristin (Grote) and Rick Hoffman, T.J. and Kelsey Grote, Marissa and Joey Dahl, Kate Martin, Brittney and Jason Ferris, and Randy and Sara Leibenguth; Great grandchildren; Bethany McLean, Tanner McLean, Kipley Solari, Landon Clark, Bentley Rivers, Paisley Grote, Parker Grote, Sawyer Grote, Wyatt Grote, Hadley Hoffman, Harper Hoffman, Abby Dahl, Lane Batterman, and Kai Leibenguth. She is also survived by her brother and sister in law Roy and Deloris Bogetto. 


Charlene was prceeded in death by her husband Jim Tamietti, her parents Stephanie and Charles Bogetto, her mother and father in law Sadie and Mudge Tamietti, Frank "Biggs" Jovick and her brother and sister in law Donald and JoAnn Tamietti.
