Obituary for Betty Lou Killham

Betty Lou (Brannigan) Killham, born January 28, 1932 to Alice (Hickey) and Daniel Brannigan, passed away peacefully at the age of 87 on June 20, 2019 in Bozeman, MT.  As a young girl, she spent her school years in Great Falls, enjoying every summer at the Hickey Ranch in Moore, MT.    

After working as a teacher near Denton, Betty married Lloyd J. “Joe” Killham on June 12, 1954.  They went on to have five children.  Joe and Betty lived most of their lives in Eastern Montana, running and owning lumber yards including Midland Lumber in Circle, MT.  They loved spending as much time as possible at Fort Peck Lake, later being lucky enough to welcome grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and countless friends to build memories at their true happy place.  Betty loved the simpler things in life, like enjoying a cold Oly or sitting in a comfortable chair and watching the world go by.    

She was preceded in death by her parents, Alice, Daniel, and Morris Lindsey; husband, Joe; daughter, Kathleen; son, Mark; and grandson, Ryan.  She is survived by her sister, Colleen Bryant and family; son, Thomas (Sheryl) and their children, Lindsey and Erica; son, Shane (Susan) and their children, Kristen and Sarah; son, Daniel (Trudi) and their children, Wendee, Christa, Zac, Austin, and Ashley; and nine great-grandchildren.  

Services will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, June 29 at Creel Funeral Home in Lewistown, MT with interment at Mount Calvary Cemetery.  Following the services, there will be a reception at Brooks Market.  

Arrangements are under the care of Creel Funeral Home.  Betty’s family and friends can share memories and condolences at
