Our beloved mother, sister, niece, cousin and friend passed on Saturday evening.
She was born in Fort Belknap, and she grew up in Malta and went to school at Saint Mary’s. She moved to Billings in 1965 with her family, where she resided until 1985, living for a couple of years in Thermopolis, Wyo. She then moved back to Billings. She worked for many years as a valued employee of Eagle Cliff Manor, where she was beloved by staff and residents alike. She enjoyed country music, listening to Lonny Bell, playing cards, going for cruises in a car. She was a woman of strong love and friendship for family and friends. She loved unconditionally and never judged. Her kind and loving soul will be heavily missed by her family.
She was preceded in death by her father, James C. Doney; her mother, Lorraine E. Daniels; her brothers, Craig, Warren, Arnold, Terry; and her sister, Tina. She is survived by her children, Tammy King (husband Keith); son Martin Doney (wife Nancie); her daughter, Crystal Willson (husband Dan); daughter Tiffany Swakcerd (husband Preston); brothers Gary, Stewart and Glen Doney; uncle Dan Daniels; aunts Shirley Reynolds, Gladys Olfen; many cousins, 19 grandchildren; and one great-grandchild. May God rest her soul!
