Colleen Ann Kittleson
January 11, 2023
Colleen Ann (Fargo) Kittleson, age 65, of Glasgow, Mont., passed away Wednesday, Jan. 4, 2023, at St. Vincent's Hospital in Billings, Mont.
Colleen was born June 6, 1957, in Glasgow, the daughter of John and Rhoda (Lentz) Fargo. Colleen graduated high school in 1975. She married Rocky Kittleson on Sept. 11, 1976, and they started their family shortly thereafter with Dusty and Travis and then after a 10-year gap Myles and Katie came along to complete the family.
Colleen worked at Eugene's Pizza all through high school. In her adult life she spent some time working at JC Penny's and Joe's Meat Shop, but her true calling was being a Mother and a Grandmother.
Colleen was known for being a dedicated wife and mom. She was involved in 4-H often being a leader from the point of Dusty starting to Katie finishing many years later. She followed her kids to all of their events, whether that was to all of the different sporting games and tournaments, chaperoning each and every school field trip or to the Metra for State Wrestling while having a two-month old and a two-year old on each hip.
The love she had for her family was multiplied when she started having grandchildren and she loved nothing more than having the opportunity to babysit and help raise the older two, Ty and Kohl; she looked forward to seeing Max when he came to visit from Minnesota and loved seeing Grace, John and Joseph for church every Sunday.
She enjoyed being a part of the many different clubs including: being an AAU Wrestling Club mom, a Gold'n Girl Investment Club lady, as well as being part of many Bible Study groups through the years.
She was preceded in death by her parents, John and Rhoda Fargo; sister Jacque Fargo; mother-in-law Blanche Kittleson and father-in-law Dorval Kittleson.
Colleen is survived by her husband, Rocky; sons Dusty Kittleson (Buffy), Travis (Marcie) Kittleson, Myles (Faith) Kittleson, all of Glasgow; daughter Katie (Cody) Esmay, of Mound, Minn.; Melissa Kittleson, of Glasgow; grandchildren Ty Kittleson, Kohl Kittleson, Grace Kittleson, John Kittleson, Joseph Kittleson and Maximus Esmay; brothers Doug (Jill) Fargo, Rod (Shannon) Fargo and Arnie (Britt) Fargo; numerous aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews.
Family received friends from 4 to 6 p.m., Sunday, Jan. 8, at Bell Mortuary, Glasgow.
Funeral services were 11 a.m., Monday, Jan. 9, at the Glasgow Evangelical Church with Pastor Tom Fauth officiating. Burial followed at Highland Cemetery with a luncheon at the Evangelical Church.
