Sarah Charlotte Alma Bryant
October 11, 2017
Sarah Charlotte Alma (Emanuelson) Bryant, 95, beloved mother and grandmother, passed away on Thursday, Oct. 5, 2017, in Glasgow, Mont.
She was born Sept. 28, 1922, to Swedish immigrants Henning and Ada Emanuelson, the youngest of six children. She was born on the family homestead 16 miles east of Malta. She attended school in the small railroad town of Bowdoin, Mont. When that school closed, she finished her schooling in Saco, where she made many friends. While attending school, she made her living as a telephone operator to pay for her room and board. As a young teen, she was thrown from a horse, leaving her with lifelong pain.
While in Saco, she met Harold Y. Bryant. They married in April of 1942, and had two children, Charlotte Marie in 1944 and Thomas Harold in 1943.
She and Harold spent most of their lives in Fort Peck. She worked at J.C. Penney in Glasgow, and when Harold retired from the Army Corps of Engineers, they moved to Great Falls, where she continued working for J.C. Penney. When she retired, she had worked for J.C. Penney for about 35 years.
After Harold passed away, she moved back to Ft. Peck until 2011, when she moved into Valley View Nursing Home.
She will be remembered most for her awesome chocolate chip cookies, the beautiful flowers she grew and her love of Christmas. She will forever be in our hearts until we meet again.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Harold; four brothers, Gus, Carl, Verner and Harold Emanuelson and his wife, Margaret; and one sister, Dorothy Scheffelmaer.
Survivors include two children Tom Bryant and his wife, Irene, and Charlotte Unger and her husband, Larry; a nephew, Charles Emanuelson and his wife, Ranelle, five grandchildren, Kevin, Darryn and his wife, Carol, Kyle Bryant and his wife, Cindy, Christa Wagner and her husband, Bill, David Unger and Christine Wright; seven great-grandchildren, Spencer, Dane, Henley, Maddox and Murphy Bryant and Sarah and Brendan Wagner.
A visitation was held on Tuesday, Oct. 10, from 5-7 p.m. and funeral services were held Wednesday, Oct. 11, at 1 p.m. all at the Bell Mortuary in Glasgow, followed by burial at the Highland Cemetery.
