Clara Dschaak

8.13.15.obit-Clara Dschaak

Clara Ann Dschaak, 83,  died on Tuesday, Aug. 4, 2015, at the Billings Clinic in Billings.
She was born Aug. 17, 1931, in Martin, N.D., to Leo and Katie (Feldman) Duda. She moved with her family to Fairview and that is where she met and married Edwin “Eddie” Dschaak.
They made Fairview their home for all of the 60 years of their marriage. Together, they raised seven children. She worked as a homemaker as well as a babysitter for 28 years. She lovingly cared for many children out of their home. Over the years, she enjoyed watching so many of her babysitting kids grow up to adulthood and become parents themselves. It always made her so happy when they would bring their babies by the house for a formal introduction to the special snuggles that only she could give.
She was a dedicated member of St. Catherine’s Catholic Church in Fairview. She served the church in many capacities but her favorite and most notable position was “Gravy Maker” at the annual fall dinner.
Her hobbies included crocheting, embroidery, gardening and watching the hummingbirds buzz around the many feeders that she and Eddie had hanging in their yard. She also loved spending time with family and attending their grandchildren and great-grandchildren’s birthday parties, concerts, graduations and weddings.
In May 2014, she moved to the Faith Lutheran Home in Wolf Point, where she quickly won over the hearts of the staff as well as her fellow residents with her sparkly personality. Her laugh and smile were very infectious. It was at Faith Home that she became a fierce competitor at BINGO and maintained a very busy social calendar. Her children thoroughly enjoyed hearing about all of her Bible study, yoga, craft, music and social hour adventures. She adored the staff that cared for her as well as the many friends that she made during her time as a resident.
She is survived by: five of her seven children, Shirley Thomson of Rapid City, S.D., Eldon Dschaak of Wolf Point, Doug Dschaak of Fairview, Edwina Hurley of Fairview, Kristi  Kimble of Eau Claire, Wis.;  two sisters, Betty Seader of Quincy, Wash., and Marge Deming of Fairview; two brothers, Don Duda of Missoula and Dennis Duda of Fairview; 17 grandchildren; and 22 great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Eddie; son, David; daughter, Jayne; and grandson, Jordan.
Mass of the Christian Burial was held Monday, Aug. 10, at the St. Catherine’s Catholic Church in Fairview. Interment was in the Fairview Cemetery in Fairview, N.D.

Brenda Isakson Cook


Brenda Diane Isakson Cook, 44, died Aug. 2, 2015,  in Glasgow.
She was born on July 4, 1971, in Glasgow to Clifford and Dianna (Hallock) Isakson and was the third of three children. She graduated from Glasgow High School.
She married Scott A. Cook in 1990 and they had four children. They were married for 14 years.
First and foremost, she loved her children. She loved finding pennies on the ground — she would always say they were pennies from her children in Heaven. She loved Pictionary, Pinochle, demolition derbies, rodeos, barrel racing and team roping. She was a thrill seeker who loved boating and four wheeling. She was a very talented decorator and her favorite color was red. All who knew her will know that red was very important to her.
She worked at the VA Clinic for 11 years and was employed by the State of Montana the last eight.
She is survived by her children, Scott Michael Cook and TiAnna Mikal Cook, both of Glasgow; parents, Cliff and Dianna Isakson of Glasgow; siblings, Randy Isakson and Wes Isakson, both of Glasgow; and special friend, Ryan Lambert of Wolf Point. Niece Heather Dulaney lived with Scott and Brenda for several years and was loved as one of their own.
Preceding her in death were her daughter, Hanna Diane; and her son, Ty Alan.
Funeral services were Friday, Aug. 7, at the Assembly of God Church in Glasgow. Burial will be private and will be done at a later date.

Alfred Kaschube

8.6.15.obit Kaschube

A Funeral Mass will be held for Alfred H. Kaschube on Wednesday, Aug. 5, 2015, at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Plentywood at 11 a.m. Father Patrick Zabrocki will be the officiant.  A public Vigil will be held at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 4, at Fulkerson
Memorial Chapel in Plentywood. Al died in Billings, Mont., on Aug. 1.
He was born Feb. 18, 1925, near Culbertson, Mont., a son of Edward and Elizabeth (Luft) Kaschube.  He had nine brothers and sisters: Christine, Molly, Dorothy, Bertha, Minna, Erna, David, Harold and Otto.
Al grew up on the family farm, north of Brockton and he developed not just a love of the land, but also of music. He married Norma Edam in 1950 and two children came to this union: Leo in 1957 and Corrine in 1962. They were later divorced.
He loved farming and ranching, being a 4-H leader, participating in  school activities, was a Roosevelt County Commissioner for 18 years, served on several state boards and always through it all, there was music. Al was a member of a three-piece dance band called the Moonlight Ramblers with Gene Enghusen and Cecil Garneau.  They performed in Canada, North Dakota and all over northeastern Montana. There was always a stage and microphone calling Al’s name. Whether he played guitar, accordion, fiddle or keyboard.
In 1991, he married Myrna Michels Bedwell. His family increased as he enjoyed her children, Jim and Angie, and her family.  They made their home in Sheridan County until his death.
It is ironic and somehow fitting that on the occasion of a “blue moon” Al rejoined his fellow musicians and many family members and  friends and is making music once again.
He is survived by his wife, Myrna, of the family home; his son, Leo Kaschube (Geneva) of Columbus; daughter, Corrine (Lorin) Kveseth of Wolf Point; step-son, Jim (Jill) Bedwell of Plentywood; sister, Christine Dick of Greeley, Colo.; and brother, Otto of Kaschube of north Brockton. Also surviving are grandchildren, Chris Kveseth, Justice Rodgers, Rick (Sarah) Bedwell, Tim and Jamie Bedwell; and many beloved nieces and nephews and friends.
He is preceded in death by his parents; brothers, David and Harold; sisters, Molly, Dorothy, Bertha, Minna and Erna; and a step-daughter, Angie Beck.
