Mary Emma Dargan passed gently to her heavenly home on Aug. 1, 2019. She was at home with loved ones. Her strong faith and belief in God assured her that her place in heaven was secure.

Born Sept. 4, 1928, in San Diego, California, Mary spent her early years in Seattle, Washington. She raised her four children, Linda Hughes, Judy Ricketts, Stephen Mihalovich and Mary M. Dargan in Tacoma, Washington. She then lived in Milton, Washington, until moving to Montana to live with her daughter Mary, four years ago.

Mary was a hard worker, working outside the home her entire adult life. She was a proud member of the Aerospace Machinist Union Local 751 and retired after 16 years with Boeing as a machinist in 1986.

Mary’s greatest loves were the ocean, her Mount Rainier, fishing and clam digging. Above those, she loved her family; her four children, 13 grandchildren, 23 great-grandchildren and nine great-great-grandchildren. She also loved her nieces and nephews. She was a great friend to her many longtime friends; she cherished each of the as they did her. She loved flowers, birds, sunsets, butterflies and all of us will miss her greatly.

The service will be held at Christ’s Bible Church, 319 S. 5th St., Hamilton MT, on Tuesday, Aug. 6, 2019, at 11 a.m.
