Patricia M. Susag, 71, of Scobey, died Tuesday, July 29, 2014, at the Daniels Memorial Hospital.
She was born Sept. 11, 1942, in Great Falls, to Jack and Christine (Mitchell) Gollehon, graduating from Great Falls High in 1960. She went to work for Sogaards Insurance right after graduation and ended her professional career by purchasing The Montana Abstract Company in Scobey where she was recognized for 25 years of dedicated and loyal service by Stewart Title Company when she retired in 2007.
She married Carl G. Susag Sept. 9, 1962, in Great Falls. The ensuing years lead them to various jobs in Great Falls, Helena and two trips to Everett, Wash., finally landing in Scobey in 1978, where Carl’s grandparents homesteaded in 1916.
She was a city girl through and through but came to love the life on the prairie and all the joys and sorrows of farming and ranching alongside her husband. They lived on the family farm until the summer of 2008, when they purchased a home in Scobey.
She is survived by her husband of 52 years, Carl; their daughter, Darcy Lund of Silverdale, Wash.; son, Scott Susag of Scobey; two grandsons; and brothers, Dan Gollehon of Miles City and Gordon Gollehon of Bozeman.
Funeral services were Aug. 4 at the Scobey Lutheran Church, with Pastors Paul Landraan and Charles Kelly officiating. Interment was at the family farm.
