Life Story for Marlys Lehmann

Marlys Heisler Lehmann

Marlys passed away on September 2, 2017 at the age of 83.

She was born in Baker, ND as the only child to Olaf and Gunda Johnson. She loved growing up in Baker and talked of it often. Growing up she had the undying attention of 6 uncles who thought the world of her. She earned a teaching degree from Minot State College and later taught school in a one room school house. A chance meeting at a dance in Minot, ND with Ed Heisler led to a 23-year marriage beginning in 1953. During that time, they lived in Havre and moved to Billings in 1968. They were married until his untimely death in 1976. This union led to three children that she loved dearly.

Through good fortune in 1977 she met Richard Lehmann and they were married in 1979 for the next 37 years until her death. This expanded the family by the addition of Rich’s three sons and two daughters. During that time, they traveled, enjoyed a trip to Alaska and went on a cruise with friends. But more than anything they enjoyed spending time with each other no matter what they were doing.

In addition to teaching she also worked in the cafeteria at Will James Middle school for several years which she enjoyed.

Unfortunately, her cancer returned three years ago. Since that time, she has fought a long, hard, courageous battle with the disease. She had an uncanny ability to bounce back from many setbacks during this time. Rich has been faithful, steadfast and extremely compassionate standing by her side through the cancer fight taking the best care of her.

Marlys is survived by her husband Rich, daughter Danette Johannsen(Duane), sons Curtis Heisler(Donna) and Vern Heisler(Linda)and step children, Ira Lehmann, Knute Lehmann, Paul Lehmann, Peggy Petersen, and Penny Lehmann. Marlys is also survived by her grandchildren: Cole Johannsen, Casey Heisler, Josh Johansen (Sarah), Eric Johansen, Stephanie Petersen, John Lehmann and Spencer Lehmann. And her great grandchildren Donovan Abrahams and Aria Johansen.

A special thank you goes to Dr. David Christianson and the staff at the Frontier Cancer Center for their treatment, care and compassion. They gave Marlys the gift of more time. The family would also like to thank Compassus Hospice Care for their assistance.

In lieu of flowers, the family would ask that any monetary donations be made to the Frontier Cancer Center in Billings, Montana or the charity of your choice.

There will be a visitation from 5:30 – 7:30 pm, Thursday, September 7 and a funeral at 10:30 am, Friday, September 8. Both at Smith West Chapel located at 304 34th Street West, Billings, MT 59102. Condolences may be shared online at
