Obituary for Harry Melvin Jabs

Harry Melvin Jabs was born June 16, 1933 to Adolf and Mary Fleglar Jabs in Lodge Grass MT. Harry graduated from Hardin 


High in 1951, attended Montana State College, and served in the US Army.


Harry passed at the age of 90 February 12, 2024 at home.


Harry was preceded in death by his parents, son Melvin, sister Ruth Muhlbeier, brothers Robert (infant) and Edwin Jabs, and grandchildren Anthony Olsen and Valerie Olsen.


After marrying in 1958 they lived in St Xavier MT. Shortly afterwards, in December of 1960, they ventured out and found the ranch land in Melville MT that became their home for 64 years, where they made their living and raised their family.


March 22 would have been their 66th wedding anniversary so they were able to spend it together.


The couple leave behind 4 surviving children: Gayle (Vernon) Grimsrud of Helena MT, Glenda Olsen of Colorado Springs, CO, Brenda Boeckel of Thornton, CO. and Tim Jabs of Spokane, WA., 8 grandchildren, 3 great grandchildren, and Harry’s surviving brothers and sisters.


Graveside service for June and Harry will be at 2:30pm at Mountain View Cemetery where they will be put to rest next to son Melvin. Service will include military honors for Harry. A gathering will be held afterwards at the American Legion Club.
