Helen Speelmon, a longtime resident of Miles City, died August 8 from complications of COVID-19. She was born in 1925 in Livingston to George and Margaret Boylan, one of six children. She attended Montana State College (now MSU), and taught Home Ec for many years.
Helen was a sassy, smart, resilient, and continually happy woman. She played bridge in college and continued to love the game and the many friends she made playing bridge. She loved her family and her home state of Montana. In her later years she had to move to Ohio to live with her daughter, but she always kept a bag packed, ready to return to her beloved Montana.
Helen was predeceased in 2016 by her husband, Sandy Speelmon, and is survived by her four daughters, Margaret (Tim) Cowley of Bloomfield, NY, Rosalie Kline of Dayton, OH, Linda (Ken) Briggs of Tucson, AZ, and Janet (Terry) Summer of Aiken SC, as well as her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We wish to gratefully acknowledge the tender care she received at Hospice of Dayton.
A graveside service is planned for Spring 2022. Donations in her memory may be made to Miles City Public Library or to Miles City Hospice
