Billie Rae Spitzer

“Gramma Billie”

Billie Rae Hull was born September 22, 1943 in Billings Montana to Loretta Hull and Leo Weber.

Billie grew up in Joliet, Montana where she graduated from High School and later married her high school sweetheart Jim Spitzer from Edgar, Montana.  They were married April 25, 1962. After Dad joined the air force and was stationed in Reno Nevada, Mom joined him and this is where they started their family.  Mom went to work dealing Black Jack at Harold’s Club.

In 1971 Dad and Mom moved back to Billings and this is where mom started her career in the freight industry.  Working as a clerk at Salt Creek she left her mark and was later hired with Yellow Freight Company where she was operations manager until she retired.  Billie was a true leader in a dominate male industry.

Dad and mom moved to Rockvale in 1976 to be closer to their parents and raise their 3 children.  This is where we all called home.

When not working mom enjoyed attending her children’s and grandchildren’s sporting events and various activities. Her family and grandchildren were her life.  You would also find her watching the “Packers” during the Football season.  But what she enjoyed most when we were all growing up was fishing. Yes, Fishing.  I am sure most of you are thinking, Billie fishing?  Those who knew her would not have guessed but fishing was her thing…..

She also enjoyed “Bingo” and her trips with Dad to various Casino’s and cherished her times with Nancy.

We would like to express both our joy in the gift that her life was to us and the pain that her passing brings.  In sharing the joy and the pain together may we lessen the pain and remember more clearly the joy.

Mom you will forever be in our hearts and thank you for a lifetime of memories.

Billie Rae Spitzer is survived by her husband Jim Spitzer, daughter Sherri Hansen, daughter Becky Harmala, and son Jim (Darci) Spitzer, 9 grandchildren, 10 Great Grandchildren, brother George (Debbie) Hull.

She was preceded in death by her mother Loretta Hull, father Leo Weber, Uncle Ralph and Aunt Vivian and her loving granddaughter Jacqui Lynne Harmala.

Per her request, there will only be a private family service.
