Reverend Robert Weishoff, 83

Reverend Robert Weishoff, 83, was born August 23, 1935 to Harvey and Vera Weishoff in Black Creek, Wisconsin.  Robert graduated from Seymore High School and went on to Wartburg College, Waverly, Iowa, attending for four years.  He then spent the next four years at Wartburg Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa.

Robert was united in marriage to Lois Kilgore in Pasadena, California in 1960 and was also ordained that same year in Irvington, Nebraska.  He served the Irvington congregation until 1966. He then accepted a call to San Gabriel, California. In 1967 he was called to Elk Grove, California and served there until 1980 when he was called to Lodi, California for the next 10 years.  In 1990 he was called to serve churches in Montana; Trinity in Stanford, Our Savior in Denton and First Lutheran Church, Fort Benton, Montana. His tri-parish then became service to Stanford, Denton and St. Paul in Lewistown, Montana where he faithfully ministered God’s word until his passing on October 20, 2018.  

His love of nature brought him to the great outdoors as an avid hunter and fisherman.  He took pride in taking his family and friends out to “catch a brookie” or enjoy a hunt together.  He was always up for a good Ole and Lena joke and a smile was never far from his face. His commitment to sharing God’s love was evident in all that he did.  He truly was a Shepherd to the people he served.

Robert is survived by his wife, Lois; sons, Mark (Laura), Matthew (Kim), Jonathan (Randee) and daughter, Christine (David); 8 grandchildren; 6 great-grandchildren; and his sister, Marilyn Chizzo.

Viewing will be at Creel Funeral Home on Thursday, October 25, 2018, 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.  Memorial Service will be held at St Paul Lutheran Church in Lewistown, MT on Friday, October 26, 2018 at 11a.m.  Lunch will follow at the church and interment will be at Stanford Cemetery following lunch. In lieu of flowers, please make memorial donations to Lutheran Seminary in Ethiopia (Stinnett mission), c/o St. Paul Lutheran Church, 125 C St., Lewistown, MT 59457.

Evalynn “Lynn” Meri McCann, 53

Evalynn “Lynn” Meri (Haworth) McCann, 53, passed away October 14, 2018.  Lynn was born in Great Falls, MT to Beverly and Dick Haworth on October 18, 1964.  She attended school and graduated from Belt, MT.

Lynn married Timothy McCann in 1981 and they had two daughters: Thea and Sydnie.  Lynn loved making crown royal quilts for her family and was very good at crafts and party ideas.  She enjoyed spending time with her grandchild and great-grandchild; though through the years she was “mom” to many kids.

Lynn was stubborn but always very generous and would do anything for anyone.  She always did the best she could to be a great mom and would never ask for anything in return.  

Lynn moved to Lewistown in 1988 and worked many jobs, usually cooking or bartending.  She was an exceptional cook. Lynn spent many years with Dave “Grandpa Dave” Newell and later several years with Billy Shaver.

Lynn is preceded in death by her daughter, Sydnie; and brother, Dean.  She is survived by her mother, Beverly Hunt; father, Dick Haworth; daughter Thea (Eddie); grandson, Christopher; great-granddaughter, Delilah; and many nieces and nephews.

Lynn was loved by many due to her openness and warmth.

A celebration of Lynn’s life will be held on Saturday, November 3, 2018, 2:00 p.m. at the Moose Lodge in Lewistown.  Cremation has taken place. Memorial donations are requested to TORCH in Lewistown or to Lynn’s family, c/o Thea, and can be left at Creel Funeral Home.
