Andrew “Andy” Marcus Lamb, 17, died Dec. 31, 2014, in Wolf Point.
He was born Feb. 10, 1997. He was in his senior year at Poplar High School and the captain of his school wrestling team.
He was born in Wolf Point, but lived in numerous places. His childhood was spent mostly in Oklahoma among part of his family that is located there. He also spent time in Utah, Wyoming, Arizona and several places in Montana. He loved people and made friends easily everywhere he went and continued many of those friendships even after he and his father moved on.
He was a good athlete and strong in sports. He especially loved wrestling and officially started during the seventh grade, but was continually wrestling with his father, Ray Lamb, from a very young age. His favorite pastime was wrestling with his dad and just generally picking on him. He loved animals and always had to have them anywhere that he was living.
He was a good-hearted person. He was loyal to the people he loved. He was kind, but never backed down from a fight. He enjoyed spending time with his nieces and nephews and sharing things on the internet that he found hilarious.  
He had hopes and dream for the future. He looked forward to graduating high school and thought about going to college, as long as it involved a wrestling scholarship. At one point in time, he even wanted to go on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, in which he attended church regularly.  
He leaves behind many people that loved him.  Among these people are:  his father, Raymond Lamb; his mother, Beverly Jackson Lamb; sisters, Natasha Serawop-Schindler, Kaja Anderson, Rosemary
Kohal, Amber Lamb, Rhiana Christianson and Lulu Daniels.
Funeral services were held Monday, Jan. 5, at the Wolf Point Community Hall in Wolf Point.  Interment was at the Oswego Presbyterian Cemetery in Oswego. Clayton Stevenson Memorial Chapel was entrusted with arrangements.

Alice Viola Cahill Berner, born to farm and ranch in northern McCone County, Mont., Dec. 10, 1927, passed peacefully at home Dec. 21, 2014.
This daughter of Bud and Hazel Cahill rode horse solo across badlands and prairie to Sunnyside, the same school her mother and kids later attended. Her roots to the land were deep. Summers were filled with brandings, trail rides, rodeos, fairs, harvests, feasts, canning and plenty of out-of-state family. A good life.
Known for her optimism, this organizer, designer and dance teacher was a progressive activist: Farmers Union, 4-H, Democratic Party, AERO, organic farming. She designed houses, made huge wedding cakes, enjoyed quilting, antiques and scrapbooking.
Alice loved the land, farming and ranching, and her family. She raised four children, Jerry, Bonnie, Colleen and Allan; and enjoyed six grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
May we dance together again.

John Walter Timm

1.8.15.OBIT-John Timm Picture


John Walter Timm, 66, of Culbertson died Dec. 29, 2014.
He was born Feb. 10, 1948, in Billings to Roy and Lucille (Frost) Timm. The oldest of three children, he spent most of his childhood between North Dakota and various parts of Montana before finally settling with the family in Culbertson in the early ‘60s.  
He graduated from Culbertson High School in 1966. After high school, he enlisted in the Air Force.  He went on one tour in Viet Nam, then was honorably discharged from the military. When he returned home, he started working alongside his father, Roy, in the trucking industry. Not long after, John, Roy and Lucille created J&R Transportation. He dedicated his career to the success of the family business.
In 1970, he married Susan Herness and soon had two children, Stefanie and Jeremy. It wasn’t until a few years later that he ultimately met and married Linda (Hodges) Timm. It was evident that they were made for one another, between their affinity for goofy t-shirts, crazy jokes and silly movies  
When speaking of his family, his passion and pride was evident to all.  He had more friends than most could ever comprehend. He truly never met a stranger.
He was nearly a permanent fixture at the Roose-velt Memorial Nursing Home, visiting both Linda and Lucille multiple times a day. Some people may have viewed what he did as an obligation, but he absolutely loved being there for his family.
He is survived by his wife, Linda of Culbertson; his mother, Lucille; his children, Stefanie Timm of  Culbertson and Jeremy Timm of Billings; four granddaughters; and sisters Ginny Bjorge and Sandy  Lamb.
Cremation will take place. His memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, Jan. 9, at Trinity Lutheran Church in Culbertson. Pastor Gretchen Wagner will officiate. Military honors will be accorded after the memorial service. Friends may call at the church one hour prior to services on Friday, Jan. 9.

Ronald “Ronnie” Ricker Jr., 52, “Wakandhi Duta,” “Red Lightning” died Dec. 28, 2014, at the Billings Clinic.
He was born to Marion Shields and Ronald “Jiggs” Ricker Sr. April 24, 1962. As the oldest, he was known as the protective big brother.
In 1987, he found his true calling in life as he became a father to his son Griffin. He spent Griffin’s childhood teaching him his favorite pastimes of fishing, hunting, baseball, building model toys, playing video games and watching action movies. He never hesitated to take Griffin anywhere with him. Later, he took in and loved his stepchildren Rhea and Jaylen as his own. Always with them was his oldest grandson Kaniel.
One of the most influential experiences of his life was his position at the Fort Peck Tribes Juvenile Detention Center. He took great pride in his position and care for the youth who walked through the door. He understood them as he recognized much of himself in them. He also made important connections with those he worked with and the guards on staff.
He was a simple man who knew the best thing he had to offer was his love and his time. He had a compassionate heart that left a lasting impression on many people and with the many dogs that he took in throughout his life. He had a strong work ethic no matter what his job title was and he made sure to make meaningful connections with the people with whom he worked. His infectious smile and humor was also a staple characteristic.
He was preceded in death by his brother, Randy Ricker.
He is survived by his father, Ronald “Jiggs” Ricker Sr; children, Griffin Ricker, Rhea Ricker and Jaylen Country; three grandchildren; sisters, Betty Ricker and Angela Ricker; brothers, Brian Riley of Portland, Ore., Jeff Ricker of Cheyenne, Wyo., Albert Ricker of Portland, Johnny Ricker of Austin, Texas, Paul Ricker of Portland, Dakota Christian and Cherokee Christian; and grandmother, Berle Jordison of Assiniboia, Sask., Canada.
