Louise Anne (Standley) Falk, 71, was born December 17, 1945 in Great Falls, MT to Lester and Bertha Standley. She died on June 19, 2017 from complications following open heart surgery. Cremation has taken place at the Croxford Funeral Home. Services will be held at First United Methodist Church on Saturday, June 24th, at 11:00 a.m. with a luncheon to follow. She graduated as valedictorian from Cascade High School in 1963 and continued her education at Eastern Montana College in Billings. She graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in 1967 and went on to teach elementary education at Loy Elementary School in Great Falls. Later on she met Bob Falk while he was stationed at Malmstrom Air Force Base and they were married in June of 1968. Throughout their marriage they owned and operated Boston Heights Dairy which they purchased in 1980 from Del and Kay Peck. In 1998 the business expanded to include Sperry’s and they retired from their business in 2011.
Along with their three children, she and Bob cared for, supported, prayed for and cheered on eight grandchildren, twelve nieces and nephews, and hundreds of Sunday school students. She made it to every possible sporting event, graduation, wedding and celebration involving those she loved and cared for and found such great pleasure in visiting with everyone that she came into contact with. She had an enormous amount of faith in God and so much joy in life which she shared with all of those around her. She was an extraordinary baker and everyone fortunate enough to know her enjoyed her famous cinnamon rolls, along with all of the other glorious goodies she made with so much love.
She is predeceased by her husband, Bob Falk, parents Lester and Bertha Standley, parents-in-law Nick and Bertha Falk, sister Elaine Schuchard and her husband Don Schuchard, sisters Jan Albright, Paulette Linabary, and Becky Olsen, and brother-in-law Mike Webster. Survivors include daughter Kristi and Jerry Girres, Andrea and Josh Wood, and Michael and Jennifer Falk, and her grandchildren Mariah Messimer, Katie Messimer, Kesley Wood, Cameron Wood, Shane Girres, Brodie Falk, Emma Girres, and Taryn Falk.
