      April 22, 2010
      Mary Kukes passed away on Tuesday, April 20, 2010, at Eagle Cliff Manor Nursing Home in Billings. Mary had been a resident at Eagle Cliff since March 26, after falling and breaking her hip and shoulder, then falling again two weeks later in rehab and breaking her elbow. She had previously resided in Independent Living at West Park Village Senior Living in Billings since 2005, cooking and baking for herself and others.

      Mary was born on Aug. 1, 1912, in Billings to Henry and Marie Kukes. The family later moved to Sidney, where Mary grew up and attended Sidney Schools. At 18 years of age, Mary left Sidney and moved back to Billings. Mary worked at the Northern Hotel drug store for 22 years and hosted for the Skyline Club, the Vegas Club and various other food establishments. She also checked coats at the Northern Hotel for many years after retirement.

      Mary never married or had children. Family was her focus, and she spent her life helping family members canning, cooking, gardening, babysitting and assisting wherever she was needed.

      Mary was a perfectionist. Cleanliness and organization were her virtues. She was an amazing woman who cannot be replicated, was strong-willed and did not have a problem letting you know when she disagreed with an opinion or how a task was completed. Her way was the right way!

      Mary was preceded in death by her parents; six brothers, Henry, Andy, John, Jack, George and Bill; and three sisters, Lydia, Katie and Emma.

      Mary is survived by one sister, Liz Adler of Belgrade, and numerous special nieces and nephews.

      Graveside services and inurnment will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, May 1, at Sunset Memorial Gardens.

      Memorials may be sent to Family Service Inc. or Montana Rescue Mission in Billings.

      Arrangements are by Cremation & Funeral Gallery.

      Condolences may be sent online to www.cfgbillings.com.
