Butte Weekly founder Holt dead at 76

Norlene Holt, a founder and former owner of the Butte Weekly, died in her sleep Dec. 19 at her home in Chehalis, WA. She was 76.

She was born Nov. 10, 1942, one of the seven children of Norma (Blodget) and Graham Holt.

Holt and her dear companion, veteran newspaperman Virgil Boehler, met in Sidney in the 1980s. Boehler and Holt were involved with several print publications in Montana. In 1993 they and one of his sons, the late Cole Boehler and his wife, formed Continental Publications Management, publishers of the Butte Weekly. Virgil died in a traffic accident in Livingston in December 2000.

Holt became publisher of the Weekly, with the late Rick Foote as editor. Her attitude was a publisher did not interfere with the news side, giving Foote total freedom to write what he wanted.

Holt Publishing Group issued the late John Astle's book, "Only in Butte: Stories Off the Hill," in 2004.

She loved Butte, often saying it is “the friendliest town I've ever been in." Norlene was a people person, one reason she liked ad sales, walking to Uptown businesses and driving to others all over town, talking to owners about their problems and challenges.

She served at least a couple of terms as president of the Uptown Association, the precursor of Mainstreet Uptown Butte. Appointed by Chief Executive Judy Jacobson, Norlene served several years on the Butte-Silver Bow Parking Commission.

Norlene loved being a mother to her kids and their friends. Her youngest daughter, Kelie Wurden, graduated from Butte High School. Kelie remembers "if any of my friends needed help, they knew they could count on Mom."

For Easter 2014, Norlene drove to Chehalis to be with her sons and daughters and her beloved grandchildren. En route home to Butte, she had a heart attack; her car left the road near Olympia, and she suffered serious injuries. Doctors called her survival "miraculous."

However, it did not surprise her friends who knew Norlene was one tough cookie.

She retired to her farm outside Chehalis where she has enjoyed being matriarch of her extended family, with camping and excursions to the beach being her favorite activities.

Robin and David Taylor bought the Butte Weekly in December 2014 and sold it two years later to its current owners Linda Anderson and her husband Robert.

A graveside service was conducted Dec. 28 in Chehalis. Send condolences to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Butte friends may donate to the World Museum of Mining, one of Norlene's favorite places, or to a charity of their choice
