Mary Lou Fjeld

January 30, 1921 ~ March 15, 2018

Mary Lou Fjeld passed away peacefully of natural causes on March 15, 2018, at the remarkable age of 97. She resided at the Gallatin County Rest Home in Bozeman.

Mary Lou was born to Lorene and Charles C. Harper on Jan. 30, 1921, in Havre, Montana, where she spent her childhood. Mary Lou is preceded in death by her husband, Carl "Stubby" Fjeld, and older sister Betty J. Sigmund. Mary Lou is survived by her three devoted sons Charles "Chuck" Fjeld, David, and Timm; grandchildren Kari Andersen (Collin), and, Clint and Shea Fjeld; great-granddaughters Chana and Emma, and great-grandson Ari Andersen; loving nieces, Jane Harris (Steve) and Ella Ray Deacon (Terrence); nephew Ronnie Fjeld, and special friend Polly Burke.

Mary Lou and Stub owned Lake Paint and Glass in Bozeman for over two decades during the 1950s through the early 1970s. They installed windows for the MSU Fieldhouse, dorms, and most of the storefronts on Main Street, as well as many other major projects. Mary Lou was artistic and creative, which she expressed through the craft section of her store and helped many others with their creative endeavors.

Mary Lou and Stub led an active social life in Bozeman, enjoying country club events, and their wonderful friends. Their New Year's Eve parties were legendary. Mary Lou was warm, kind, inclusive to all, socially graceful, full of vigor, and fun loving. She was loved and adored by all who knew her.

Mary Lou, although having busy work and social life, was a devoted and loving mother who made life wonderful and special for her three sons. She was a support and confidant, who provided wise advice to her sons and others. Mary Lou epitomized positivity, resiliency, and love.

Her sons thank the attentive and loving caregivers at Gallatin County Rest Home. A private celebration of life was held on April 6, 2018.

"Chris, how do I ever find the words to properly or adequately thank you for your support and kindness during a very trying time.  You are a very special young man and have a wonderful way of making a very difficult time much more easy.  It was very comforting to deal with you.  You are a natural at your position.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
