Yvonne, passed away peacefully on Thursday, April 20, 2017. She was born on June 8, 1939 to Rex and Margaret Blackorby in Great Falls, MT. She grew up and attended school in Great Falls, MT. She graduated from Great Falls High School in 1957. She and her husband, Bob raised their children in Great Falls, MT and eventually in Billings, MT.

To know her was to love her. She always had the most welcoming smile. She enjoyed working in the yard, taking pictures, horse racing, playing cards and most of all she was an avid football fan (Washington Redskins and Oakland Raiders). She loved family gatherings – during this time there was much laughter. The most important thing to her was FAMILY! The greatest blessing during her life was her children. She gave the best hugs. She will be deeply missed and as she would say, “love you bunches”.

Gail was preceded in death by her parents, siblings, Aunt & Uncle & her husband and son.

She is survived by her daughter Angie Wells (Kenny) of Parshall, ND; daughter-in-law, Heather Elison; grandchildren: Jessica (Sean), Jake, Jenna, Kenny Jr., Desiree (Tevinn), Mariah and Dane; and great-grandchildren: Vaughn, Corbin and Skylar; also, nieces, nephew and a very good friend, Sandy Anderson.
