Maurice Edwin Styger passed away on Monday, January 18th, in Billings, MT. He was born on December 8, 1921 to Maurice Carl and Elizabeth Brazel Styger, in Ballantine, MT, on the family farm. He was the youngest of six children. He had four sisters and one brother.

Maurice went to school in Ballantine and graduated from Ballantine High School. He worked on the family farm in Ballantine until his father passed away in January 1959.

He met Sarah Mae Schneidmiller in 1946 and they were married on September 12, 1947 at the Congregational Church in Billings, MT. After they were married, they moved to the family farm and lived there until 1954, when they moved to Billings. He worked for the railroad, sugar beet plant, and Midland Distributing, as well as helping on the farm until 1959. After that he worked as a mechanic at East Parkway, West Parkway, and then started with Sears in the automotive department until he moved over to the Sears store as a maintenance tech. He worked there until he retired in 1986.

After retirement he and Sarah volunteered at the Chamber of Commerce, Pompey’s Pillar, and did Meals on Wheels for 5 years. He also drove vehicles for an auction house for quite a while. Then he volunteered at the Billings Clinic and pushed patients around in wheelchairs to their appointments until he was 90.

His hobbies were bowling, in which he bowled on a league until he was in his 90’s. He also learned to bake and made the best cookies, especially snickerdoodles, and made a chocolate cake that won a ribbon at the Seniors Center.

Maurice and Sarah have two children, a daughter Maureen Styger born on August 17, 1949 and a son, Maurice (Maury) Styger III born on December 16, 1954.

Maurice was the last surviving charter member of Parkhill Church, known as Second Assembly of God Church in the beginning. It started in a little house on the north side of Billings.

Maurice is survived by a daughter, Maureen (Walter) Bartel, a son Maurice (Maury) Styger III, two granddaughters, Cherie (Eric) Robbins, Candace (Aaron) Hartman, a grandson Curtis (Joy) Bartel, eighteen great grandchildren and four great great grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents, four sisters, and one brother.
