Mabel (Reddick) Feldhusen

 

Mabel (Reddick) Feldhusen, age 79, passed away peacefully with her family by her side on Monday, Oct. 10, 2016.

She was the sixth child born to Harry and Florence (Wagner) Reddick in Opheim, Mont., on April 22, 1937. When she was 13 years old, the family moved to Glasgow.

In 1953, she met Frank Feldhusen from Dallas, Texas, when he was working on a surveying crew in Glasgow. They married on July 24, 1954, and shortly thereafter moved to Casper, Wyo., where they started their family. Frank started work as a draftsman, and in 1958 they moved to Dallas, where they had three more children. Frank became a geologic specialist for Atlantic Richfield and was transferred to Denver, Colo., in 1968, where they continued to raise their children; Mabel was a homemaker. In 1990, Frank retired and they came back to where it all began, and purchased a home at St. Marie. They were married 37 years when Frank passed away in 1991.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Frank; her parents, Harry and Florence Reddick; four brothers, Robert, Roy, Jerry and John; one sister, Mary; one sister-in-law, Carol; one niece; and seven nephews, including Alvie Hallock, whom she loved as her own son, along with "Nickel Bill Wade."


Survivors include four children, Julie Steward and her husband, Joel, of Longview, Wash., Marie Parks and her husband, J.C., of Littleton, Colo., Richard Feldhusen of Portland, Ore., and Karl Feldhusen of Denver; four grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; three siblings, Ed Reddick and Della Hallock of Glasgow, and Donnie Reddick and his wife, Lynda, from Bozeman; two sisters-in-law, Nina Reddick of Nashua, and Eileen Reddick of Miles City; numerous nieces and nephews; her companion of over 20 years, Jake Crounse of St. Marie; and her faithful four-legged companion, Hermie.

She loved her beer, enjoyed playing cards including Pitch and Poker, gambling in Deadwood, Irish Whiskey, her slot machine in "Nickel Bills," and of course her family and friends that are too numerous to name here.

A viewing was held from 6-8 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 13, with family receiving friends at Bell Mortuary. Services took place Friday, Oct. 14, at 11 a.m. at Bell Mortuary in Glasgow, followed by a luncheon at the Glasgow VFW.

Bell Mortuary was in charge of arrangements. Condolences may be left at bellmortuarymontana.com.
