Glenna Settle


Jan. 22, 2015

Glenna Louise Settle passed away Saturday evening in a local hospital.  Born January 29, 1925 in Tacoma, Washington, her mother, Dorothy Cady raise her on her own, living in Washington until she was 15.  She grew up spending summers on her grandfather’s ranch on Hood Canal in Washington.  She and her mother moved to Chula Vista, CA where she graduated from Sweetwater High School.  When she was 17 she met the love of her life, Fred Settle who was in the navy.  They married November 22, 1943 in Seattle, Washington while Fred was on leave and stayed married for 71 years.  Glenna was one day older than Fred and a running joke in the family was Fred would tell people he married an older woman. 

They soon had two daughters, Donna Lee and Jere Lynn.  Her family lived in Chula Vista for about 63 years where she was active in her community.  She started volunteering at the municipal pool where she taught swimming lessons.  After becoming a life guard she then became the manager of two pools and her daughter followed in her footsteps, also becoming a pool manager which she was very proud.  Glenna was also active in Beta Sigma Phi, a woman’s sorority.

Fred and Glenna spent many years traveling through Mexico in their motorhome, towing their dune buggy down to the tip of Baja, CA and as far as the Yucatan Peninsula and the pyramids.  They traveled through Canada and the southwestern United States.  They had a home in LaSalinas, Baja Ca, Mexico right on the beach where family and friends spent many weekends and summers.  Glenna and her family like to scuba dive, sail and travel.  In 2002 their granddaughter moved to Butte with her mother to go to nursing school.  Being a very close family, soon Fred and Glenna moved here to be with their new grandchildren, Fred and Rachel.  Soon Jere Lynn came so the entire family was here.  She loved the friendly people of Butte but never quite got accustomed to the cold and snow. 

Kevin Tuss, her son-in-law, gave a family prayer and blessing but no formal services are scheduled as per Glenna’s request.  She is survived by her husband Fred Westly Settle, daughters, Donna Lee and Jere Lynn, grandchildren, Fred and Rachel, son-in-law, Kevin Tuss.  She is preceded in death by her granddaughter, Pauline who died of kidney complications in 2013.    

 

John Robertson

Jan. 22, 2015

Longtime Butte resident John Robertson, age 94 passed away at Genesis – Butte Center.  John was born in Bozeman, Montana to Bulah and John Robertson.  He graduated from Gallatin County High School in 1938. 

 

Following high school John was a gandy-dancer for the Milwaukee Railroad in the Bozeman and Toston areas until he began school at Montana State College.  He joined the US Army in September of 1942 and served in the 8th Traffic Regulating Group in Northern France after landing on Omaha Beach D-Day +19 hours. He served in the Ardennes Counteroffensive, in major operations in the Rhineland region and elsewhere in Central Europe.  John received an American Theater Service Medal, and a European Theater – African – Middle Eastern Service Medal ending his service in November of 1945 as a Staff Sergeant. Upon his return from military service he went back to MSC and completed a B.S. in Chemical Engineering in 1947. While at MSC, he met his future wife Betty, a Great Falls native, and in 1947 they wed at the First Methodist Church in Great Falls.

 

His career with Montana Power spanned 37 years. He worked in Cut Bank from 1947 – 1956 as a meter inspector, gas field operator, assistant engineer, gas engineer, and finally field superintendent.  John moved his family (wife Betty, children Joe, Judy, Tom, and Carley) to Butte in 1957 and worked as a gas engineer in the general office operations department and in 1963 was promoted to senior engineer in charge of design.  He graduated from Harvard Graduate School’s Advanced Management Program in 1966 and was promoted to manager of the MPC Gas and Oil Department. In 1980 he transferred to Colstrip as Vice President of Energy Generation (wife Betty and daughter Jennifer joined him). Returning to Butte after John’s retirement in 1984, Betty and John traveled to Elderhostels, art classes, and to visit their children throughout the United States, as long as health permitted.

 

John touched many people’s lives and was respected by all - at work, at church, in the community, and by his family.  He was loved by many for his strength of character, commitment to friends and family, and willingness to stand up for what he believed was the right thing. He was a lifelong animal lover and especially enjoyed the company of his dogs and cats.  He was gentle and loving with animals just as he was gentle and loving with people’s hearts.  He had a way of making people feel good and important.  In the business world and in his daily life, he was a man of integrity. He lived a full and busy life. The world shares our loss of a true gentleman. “We miss him greatly,” says his family.

 

John was preceded in death by wife Betty, his parents, sister S. Jean Robertson, and son-in-law Terry Onslow. He is survived by children: John Robertson, Jr. (Kay) of Helena, Montana; Judith Onslow (Terry) of Girdwood, Alaska; Thomas Robertson (Kerianne) of Boerne, Texas; Carley Robertson of Havre, Montana; and Jennifer  Adkins (Amanda) of Cincinnati, Ohio; and grandchildren: Erin Pennings (Klark) of Anchorage, Alaska; Claire Robertson of Missoula, Montana; and Aidan Adkins of Cincinnati, Ohio; and great-grandson Emmett John Pennings of Anchorage, Alaska; as well as nieces and nephews in western Canada and the US.

 

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to the Mountain View Methodist Church (at 203 W. Quartz, Butte, MT 59701), or to Chelsea Bailey Butte Silver Bow Animal Shelter (at 699 Centennial Ave., Butte, MT 59701).

 

Memorial services will be on January 29, 2015 at Wayrynen-Richards Funeral Home, 1800 Florence Avenue, Butte, Montana. Visitation will be at 1pm followed by the service at 2pm, then a reception at the Wayrynen-Richards Community Center.
