As dawn was breaking the morning of April 28, 2021 Dorothy Hocevar Tebeau was called home by our heavenly Father.
To plant a memorial tree in honor of Dorothy Mary Tebeau, please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
Born in Tracy, Montana on July 21, 1924 to Joseph and Frances Hocevar, she was the third of five children. Dorothy lived in Tracy and attended school in Sand Coulee until the 4th grade, when the Hocevar family moved to Great Falls where she finished school.
During the war years she worked at Malmstrom Air Base, following that she worked at the Great Falls Tribune where she met her husband, Frank Tebeau Jr. They were married October 2, 1945. To this union two sons were born Frank III and Joseph. Many wonderful years were spent taking summer vacations, often times the four Tebeaus going on the road trips with matching hats. Those trips brought lifelong memories to Frank and Joe.
After a marriage that lasted 48 years Frank Jr. passed away and Dorothy moved to Billings, to be close to Joe and his wife, Vangie. Joe and Vangie lovingly took care of Dorothy after first moving to Sage Tower and then her transition to St. John’s where she was taken care of by the wonderful staff as well.
Dorothy was predeceased by her husband, Frank Jr.; son Frank III; brother Frank Louie Hocevar; sister Frances Belot Drwyer; and twin great grandsons Ryan and Aiden Smith.
She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Joe and Vangie Tebeau; daughter-in-law Donna Tebeau; brother Joe (Mary) Hocevar; sister Elsie Leavitt; 5 grandchildren; 17 greatgrandchildren; and 3 great greatgrandchildren.
