June 14, 2017
With her family at her side, Frances Faye (Tribby) Dopp, 81, of St. Marie, Mont., passed away Thursday, June 8, 2017, at St. Vincent Hospital in Billings, Mont.
There will be a private family graveside service in Dodson.
She was born Feb. 27, 1936, to Lloyd and Mary (Lemp) Tribby in Dodson. She attended Dodson Public School and graduated at the age of 16.
On March 20, 1954, she married Dale A. Dopp of Wagner, Mont. They had two children, a daughter, Janet, and a son, Lloyd. She held various jobs, but stopped working to care for her husband until his death in 1988.
She was a member of First Lutheran in Glasgow. She was a well-loved and respected mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother. Even after her battles with heart complications, cancer, shingles and a stroke, she never ceased to amaze us with her courage and optimism. She was an avid reader, but her real claim to fame in the family was her apple pie and banana bread.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Lloyd and Mary (Lemp) Tribby; her husband, Dale Dopp; one sister, Vi Hoover; and two brothers, George and Pete Tribby.
Survivors include one daughter, Janet Garrison of St. Marie; one son, Lloyd Dopp and his wife, Dana, of Helena; two sisters, June Cornell of Malta and Shirley Fewer of Glasgow; one brother, Jim Tribby and his wife, Sally, of Glasgow; a sister-in-law, Shirley Tribby of Malta; four grandchildren, Justin Dopp and his wife, Dena, of Minot, N.D., Lisa George and her husband, Alex, of Edmonds, Wash., Sarah Morales of Opheim, and Bethany Schatzke and her husband, Matt, of Billings; six great-grandchildren, Jay Dopp and his wife, Allie, of Plentywood, Michele Filipek and her husband, Ethan, of Minot, N.D., Alexa and Ashlyn Dopp of Minot, Elijah George of Edmonds, Wash., and Keleigh Morales of Opheim; five great-great-grandchildren, Aiden, Elly and Briggs Dopp of Plentywood, and Brinley and Carter Filipek of Minot.
The family wishes to extend their thanks to sister-in-law Sally Tribby as well as Julia and Kim Martens, who were significant in making her last year truly special.
