Serving Proudly As The Voice Of Valley County Since 1913

'Barb' Gail Sugg

Barbara "Barb" Gail Sugg was born Jan. 24, 1954, in St. Louis, Mo. She passed away on the evening of Friday, Sept. 30, 2022. Barb had a wonderful and fulfilling life, most of which was spent in Glasgow, Mont.

Services will be 10 a.m., Tuesday, Oct. 11, at Bell Mortuary, Glasgow, with Pastor Mark Pearson officiating with burial following at Highland Cemetery, Glasgow. Please join her family at the VFW at 11:30 a.m. following the service at Bell Mortuary.

She was an explorer of a variety of careers from working in computer part manufacturing to being a secretary for multiple companies. But there was a job with the seismic crew that brought her to Montana where she met the love of her life, Ernie. Barb and Ernie were foster parents, raising many kids who she loved deeply. She liked collecting bells. Her mother-in-law taught her how to make fry bread and bake fish.

She also enjoyed sewing, cooking, camping, thrift store shopping, canning, painting, and watching Western movies. She traveled to Australia to sing in a choir, played the piano and the dulcimer her father made, and sang with the church. Barb also loved reading not only the Bible, but also any book, whether that was a paper copy or a book on the Kindle, especially with her dogs, Cola and Boomer.

She could make anything from reupholstering furniture to sewing clothes and lots of hemming, patching, and fixing things. Recently she reminded us of a hunting story. Her husband recalled one time where she shot a deer through the antler flipped it over. The deer got up, took off and we came up on it again and she shot it through the heart with a 30/30 pump her father-in-law gave her.

She is also preceded in death by her parents, Johnnie and Lou Sherrill, and son, Joseph L J Sugg.

She is survived by her loving husband, Ernie; her daughter, Maria and Jeremy Aaberge; sister Shirley Sherrill; brothers Michael (Karen) and Steve Sherrill; many nieces and nephews and a grandchild.

The Lord was blessed with an amazing and thoughtful lady, loved by all who knew her.
