Obituary for Christine Gaetz (Saur)

Print
Christine Saur was born in Vanstel, Montana, on May 12, 1927, to Emilie Mittelstaedt and William Saur. She was raised in Marsh and passed away at her home in Billings on October 11, 2018.
She spent most of her life in Glendive, Missoula and Billings. Christine married Ervin Gaetz on June 6, 1948, and was a devoted wife for 65 years until Ervin’s death on October 31, 2013. They raised seven children, Arnold (Luann), Jean (Jim), Jeanette (John), Juliann (Tom), Judy (Scott), Alan (Wendy) and Jolene. She was proud of her 13 grandchildren, Arnie Jr., Brandi, Chad, Scott, Josh, Travis, Amber, Alysia, Shann, Shea, Rachel, Adam and Eli, and 13 great-grandchildren, Crystal, Amelia, Zachary, Jayden, Hayden, Shayla, Kaitlyn, Hannelorre, Luci, Dominiqe, Tristan, Taylee and Atreyu.
Christine worked at several different jobs throughout her life and was a devoted mother and homemaker. Her dedication in service to the Lord and Mt. Olive Lutheran Church (40 years) was manifested through evangelism, LWML, stewardship, choir and quilting.
Christine touched so many lives. She rests with her heavenly Father and other loved ones. Mom will be lovingly missed!
