Obituary

Frances M. Huff, 93, passed away peacefully Monday, June 29, 2020, at St. John’s United with three of her daughters by her side. She was born February 18, 1927, on the family farm between Laurel and Park City to Mike and Susie Beslanowitch. She attended Trewin School and graduated from Park City High School. After attending college in Billings, she became a teacher and taught school for several years in East Helena.
She met James Huff at the Billings Fair, and they married June 14, 1951, in Laurel. Frances was a stay-at-home mom, and they had 5 children: Pam, Chris, Dan, Eileen and Susan. She sewed clothes for her children and as a 4-H Leader for many years taught the girls to sew also. Her faith was very important to her and she was active in St. Anthony’s Catholic Church her entire life. She played the organ and piano for daily Mass for many years until 6 years ago.
After Jim’s death in 1982, she took over the Huff’s Antique Shows at the Metra for 20 years. She traveled around the U.S., Europe, Australia and New Zealand on many bus tours with friends. Since Jim was a Veteran, she had been active in the Ladies Auxiliary of Veteran of Foreign Wars for many years and held many offices.
Until recently she was very active in the Laurel Senior Citizen’s Center as a volunteer and enjoyed bingo and playing pinochle with her friends there. Over the years, her hobbies included bowling, crocheting and playing pinochle. She was always ready for a game of pinochle and recently played cards outside at St. John’s on Tuesday afternoons with Pam, Chris, and Susan carrying on a tradition of Tuesday afternoon pinochle with friends which started over 50 years ago.
Frances was preceded in death by her husband Jim, parents Mike and Susie Beslanowitch, a brother Woodrow Beslanowitch, sisters Margaret Hayes & Betty Martin, and son-in-law Lynn Lowery. She is survived by her children: Pam (Gary) Waddell of Laurel, Chris (Bill) Lohrenz of Laurel, Dan Huff of Billings, Eileen Lowery of Kalispell and Susan (Kevin) Gontarek of Billings, 16 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
A Rosary and Vigil will be held at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Laurel at 6:00 pm on Sunday, July 5th. The Memorial Mass will be held on Monday, July 6th at 10:00 am with a Luncheon following. Private Family Burial will be later that day.
Memorials suggested to St. Anthony Catholic Church, Laurel Senior Citizen’s Center or a charity of your choice.
