On Friday, Feb. 8, 2019, our mother, sister, grandmother and friend, Ardine Catherine (Snyder) Grayson, 88, passed away peacefully.
Her final resting place will be at Highland Cemetery in Glasgow, Mont., at a later date.
She was born a twin on July 18, 1932, in Glasgow, to Arden Marshal and Mary Teresa Snyder. Her mother passed away three weeks after their birth. The girls were raised by their grandparents in Glasgow because their father worked for the Anaconda Mining Company in Argentina.
Ardine married Lyle B. Grayson on July 30, 1950, in Glasgow, later divorcing after many years of marriage. They welcomed two children into their marriage: Richard (Mary) Grayson, of Embarrass, Minn., and Kathryn Grayson Tuttle, of Billings, Mont.
She was preceded in death by both parents; her grandmother, Almina L. Snyder; and grandfather Enos J. Snyder.
She is survived by both children; two granddaughters, April Kenaston, of Billings, and Robyn (James) Lottes, of Charleston, S.C .; one grandson, Nolan (Amie) Snyder, of Thornton, Colo .; two great-grandsons, Devin and Nathan Kenaston, of Billings; two great-granddaughters, Nova Lottes, of Charleston, and Samantha Snyder, of Thornton; one great-great-granddaughter, Teagan Kenaston, of Billings; twin sister Nadine Jakanoski, of Glasgow; and several nieces and nephews.
Viewing was from 2 to 6 p.m., Friday, Feb. 15, at Michelotti-Sawyers Mortuary, 1001 Alderson Ave., Billings, followed by cremation. Services were at 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 16, at Michelotti-Sawyers.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Alzheimer's Association – Montana or the activities department at Bella Terra Nursing Home.
