Betty Frank, age 92, passed away peacefully on February 3, 2020. She was born January 22, 1928 in Laurel, MT and lived in Laurel her entire life. She graduated from Laurel High in 1946, and married Raymond Frank, a guy who grew up a block away, on September 10, 1955. They built a home together and raised son Todd and daughter Robin (Ken) Herman.

Betty was a homemaker whose greatest joys were her children, granddaughters Marki (Trevor) Kirschenmann and Rylie (Cole) Olson, and grandsons Hank and Max Frank. Perhaps the brightest sparkle in her eye occurred when she was blessed with great granddaughter Oaklyn.

Betty was a tireless and sacrificing worker who enjoyed helping others. She was a very talented baker and loved to share her delicious confections. Above all she loved the Lord and cherished the hymns she grew up with.

She was preceded in death by her husband and sisters Mary Besel and Augusta Cowley. She is survived by her children, grandchildren and her sister Georgia Helterbran.

The family would like to sincerely thank the amazing women who provided her wonderful care for the past 3 years. Their unwavering attention and genuine compassion were an overwhelming factor in mom’s health and happiness.

Visitation held on Friday, February 7, 2020 from 9-10:00 a.m. at Smith Funeral Chapel in Laurel. Funeral services will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, February 7, 2020 at Smith Funeral Chapel in Laurel. Interment follows at the Laurel Cemetery.

Even though we didn't spend the time we should have when Aunt Betty went into assisted living, we always tried to visit her at her home when we came to Laurel. She has always been in our thoughts and prayers. She is now rejoicing in the reunion in heaven with Uncle Ray and singing the hymns she so much enjoyed. God Bless the family and take comfort in knowing she is in a better place. Steve and Merna Winters
