Our wonderful mom, grandma, great-grandma, sister and friend, Margaret A. Fendrick, passed away peacefully on July 12, 2015 in Billings, MT. She joined her husband of 64 years, Frank, in their “forever home”, she was surrounded by her immediate and TenderNest families. Margaret was born September 17, 1928 in South Heart, ND, one of fifteen children to Mr. & Mrs. Frank Kudrna. She attended South Heart School, and worked at Winkie’s Ice Cream Parlor, before marrying Frank Fendrick on June 27, 1949. Two years later they, and their new daughter Sharon, moved to Billings where they have resided ever since. During her life in Billings, Grandma “Frank” invested countless hours into the lives of family and friends. In 35 years, she rarely missed a sporting event in which her grandkids, and later great-grandkids, participated. During any given visit, all the grandkids could count on a great meal or sweet treat from her. Margaret enjoyed camping, spectating at sporting events, yard work, keeping things clean, going for walks, visiting on the patio, “old time” music and dancing with friends at the Moose and Eagles Lodges. She was a lifetime member of St. Pius X Parish. Margaret was a beautiful person from start to finish; she will be dearly missed by all. Survivors include her daughter Sharon (Dave) Halligan, granddaughter Jayme (Mike) Wilson, three grandsons; Chris Halligan, Joe (Tonya) Halligan, Pat (Amanda) Halligan, seven great
grandchildren; Logan Wilson, Dylan, Jacob, Connor, Hailey, Tyler and Kinley Halligan. Four brothers; Don (Millie) Kudrna, Ray (Shirley) Kudrna, Wayne (Rosalie) Kudrna, Bob (Jeanette). Four sisters; Dorothy Ficek, Eleanor Badinger, Darlene (Bob) Betchner and Delores (Darrold) Raab; two sisters in law, Josephine Kudrna and Mabel Kudrna. She also leaves behind numerous nieces, and
nephews. We are all grateful to the wonderful staff at TenderNest and Riverstone Hospice for
helping to make her final days on this earth more comfortable and meaningful. Visitation and vigil will be held at 7:00 PM Monday, July 27, 2015 at Cremation & Funeral Gallery. A Funeral Mass will take place at 11:00 AM, Tuesday, July 28, 2015 at St. Pius X Parish.
