She was born on March 10, 1924, to Guillaume and Marie (Van Hamme) DeMessemaker on their homestead in Tampico, Mont., and raised there, along with her siblings.

In 1945, she married Irven Stohl of Nashua and they moved to Hungry Horse and raised two daughters, Cynthia "Cyndie" and Nancy. While their children were still young, they moved back to Nashua. They later divorced, and she remained in Nashua for many years before moving to Glasgow. She resided at Valley View Home for more than 11 years.

She loved puttering outside with flowers in her garden, and also enjoyed boating and catching the biggest fish. She worked on many crafts and delighted in playing cards, bingo and bridge with the ladies of her community. She took pride in having women come to her home where she offered perms and haircuts, and also worked for the Glasgow Credit Bureau and Glasgow Flower Shop where she created beautiful arrangements.

She was a member of the Garden Club and Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Nashua. She enjoyed telling the story about her father surviving his journey on the Titanic.

She was preceded in death by a brother, Bill, and sister-in-law, Joyce DeMessemaker; a sister, Rachael, and brother-in-law, Tom Pugh; a sister, Esther, and brother-in-law Bob Nelson; and nephews Donnie DeMessemaker and Thomas Pugh III.

Survivors include two daughters, Cyndie Sonsteng and her husband, Don, of Butte, and Nancy Ohlson and her husband, Sam, of Fort Peck; grandchildren, Gina Christie and her husband, John, Kathy McGrath and her husband, Mike, and Beth Salusso and her husband, Mark, all of Butte, Tracie Moats and her husband, Daryl, of Great Falls, Zac Ohlson of Glasgow and Greg Ohlson of Billings; great-grandchildren, Kyle Christie, Sidney Christie, Derek McGrath, Kole McGrath, Brooke McGrath, Franki Salusso, Berkli Salusso, Sawyer Salusso all of Butte, and Darby Moats of Great Falls; one great-great grandchild, Axton McGrath of Butte; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Her family takes comfort knowing she is at peace.
