Dolores L. Wentland


April 25, 2018

Dolores L. Wentland, age 71, of Glasgow, passed away Sunday, April 15, 2018, in Billings, Mont. Memorial services will be Thursday, April 26, at 1 p.m., at the Evangelical Church in Glasgow with a luncheon to follow. Burial will be in the Highland Cemetery.

She was born in Holyoke, Mass., on Oct. 24, 1946. She was later adopted by her loving parents, Amos and Charlotte (Frischkorn) Carrignan. She was raised in New Haven, Conn., and later moved to Stanford, Conn., where she attended high school.

The family spent many wonderful days at Candlewood Lake and Cape Cod. She and her cousins, John, Susan and Dick Hendrie, practically grew up on the beach.

She met the love of her life, Harold Wentland, at Jamestown College in North Dakota. They were married Sept. 18, 1966, in Bozeman, Mont. She knew that nursing was in her blood and pursued a nursing career.

She and Harold raised two wonderful children, Eric was born in 1970 and Nikki was born in 1972. After the children were in school, Dolores returned to nursing. She worked at Glendive Medical Center for 12 years. While living in Glendive, her mother moved in with the family.

When Charlotte suddenly needed kidney dialysis, Dolores took on that responsibility too. After the family moved to Glasgow, she worked at Valley View Nursing Home for over 24 years. In 2016, she suffered cardiac arrest and spent many months in Billings at Advanced Care and Aspen Meadows where she received excellent care. She returned home to Glasgow in December. Harold and Home Health Care provided loving support.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her son, Eric.

She is survived by her husband, Harold, of Glasgow; and one daughter, Nicole R. Peterson of Billings.
