Connie Mae Whitten

 

Connie Mae Whitten, 58, passed away peacefully in her home with her loving family beside her on Wednesday, Nov. 9, 2016.

She was diagnosed in 2009 with pancreatic cancer and was in remission for six years. In 2015, she was told her cancer was back and had spread. She knew she had limited time, so she spent her days with her family, loving them and making memories.

She was born on June 27, 1958, to Walter and Darlene Murch. She attended school in Nashua until she graduated in 1976.

She married her one true love, Elmer Whitten, better known as "Red," on March 29, 1986. This is when they started the dance of their lives. They raised four amazing children, Michael, April, Krystal and James Andrew "Andy." She loved every minute of her life with Red and their kids. Then came the grandkids. They were blessed with seven perfect angels, Ashtyn, Blaine, Cade, Davyn, Keigan, Kambryn and Mason. Grandma Connie spent many hours watching school programs, sporting events and loving and cherishing every moment with them. She would light up whenever talking about her kids and grandkids.


She was a giving, caring and loving person. She would always tell her sisters, "Our kids have three moms - we all love them and we will always be there for them."

She was a loving sister and always took care of all of them. Starting with beating up any boys that ever picked on her brother, Dave, to putting up with her two baby sisters always getting into her things and telling all her secrets.

She lived the dance of life right up to her final day and left us with memories of love, laughter and smiles.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Red Whitten.

Survivors include her parents, Walt and Darlene Murch of Nashua; a son, Michael Myrick and his wife, Erin, and their four kids, Ashtyn, Blaine, Cade and Davyn Myrick of Glasgow; a daughter, April Block and her husband, Jesse, and their two kids, Keigan Skolrud and Kambryn Block of Nashua; a daughter Krystal Cahill and her husband, Bryan, and their son, Mason, of Killeen, Texas, and son James Andrew Whitten of Billings; a brother, Dave Murch of Billings; two sisters, Lori Kolstad of Glasgow and Peggy Lauckner of Nashua; and numerous nieces and nephews, whom she loved as her own.

She will be missed by all and loved forever. We will look to the stars at night and know that she is there smiling down at us, sending us love until we see her again.

Services were held on Saturday, Nov. 12, at 10 a.m. at the Bell Mortuary in Glasgow, followed by a luncheon at the Sunnyside Country Club. Bell Mortuary was in charge of arrangements and condolences may be made at bellmortuarymontana.com.
