  • John H. Larimore b. 22 Jun 1898, d. 5 Dec 1966; Suspect Andrew J. "Jack" and Caroline Larimore were not the biological parents of John H. Larimore. (Or maybe Jack was but Caroline wasn't). John is not listed with the Jack Larimore family on either the 1900 or 1910 census, and Caroline reported eight total children born in both 1900 and 1910. But obviously they were close -- John is buried in the same cemetery as most of the rest of Jack and Caroline's family. DLB 2017

She was SO proud of all her grandchildren and wished she could have been near all of them.
Billie remarried on Dec. 20, 1992, to Kenneth Brown. They met in Ohio while Billie was visiting family and, no ifs, ands or buts about it, they were to live in Montana. No arguments here from Ken!
Billie loved gardening, sewing, crafts, bridge and pinnacle card clubs, fishing, anything outdoors, Grizzly football games, and being with family. She had such a zest for life and lived it to the fullest. She was blessed with many great friends who helped her keep her social calendar full. She had a very big, giving heart and would do anything for anyone.
There are not enough adjectives to describe her: kind, beautiful, classy. She kept her wit right up to the end. Can't express how much she will be missed and what a void there will be in the lives of the people who were fortunate to have known her.


Services will be held at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 1, at Daly-Leach Chapel in Hamilton. A reception for friends and family will follow the services in the community room at the chapel. A graveside service will be held at 2 p.m. that same day at the Western Montana State Veterans Cemetery in Missoula, 1911 Tower St., off South Ave. Condolences may be left for the family at www.dalyleachchapel.com.
The family would like to thank the staff at the Marcus Daly Hospice. Even for the short time you had Billie in your care, she experienced care and compassion as if she'd known you a lifetime. What a remarkable program you have.
The family suggests memorials to Marcus Daly Hospice, 1200 Westwood Dr., Hamilton, Mont., 59840; Hamilton Garden Club, c/o Joane Cosper, P.O. Box 1121, Hamilton, MT 59840. She was buried in November 2011 at Western Montana State Veterans Cemetery, Missoula, Missoula Co., MT.
