Obituary for May Margrethe Hansine Lotoft
On April 30, 2017, life ended 4 days from her 102nd birthday at the Pioneer Medical Center in Big Timber.
May was born May 4, 1915 in a log cabin near Absarokee MT to recent immigrants from Bornholm Denmark, Andrew and Marie Larsen.
After graduating from high school in Absarokee she graduated from the Nursing program at Bozeman in 1939 and spent a year of post graduate training in obstetrics at Baylor University in Texas.
In 1943 she enlisted in the Army as a nurse and spent time at Camp White and in the Bushnell Hospital in Brigham City, Utah. She worked OB and in the amputee ward for soldiers injured overseas.
When the war was over she returned to work in Columbus, MT and married Wilbur Williams in 1948. They lived in Melville and Big Timber and she worked at the Sweet Grass Community Hospital.
She was widowed in 1972. In 1979 she married Mikal Lotoft and was widowed again in 1994.
Her pride and joy were her children Jane and John, her grandchildren and her farm and garden along the Boulder River east of Big Timber.
May was preceded in death by her parents, her brother Ed Larsen and her husbands, Wilbur and Mikal. Surviving are her children John (Betty) Williams with grandchildren Eric, Burl and Marsha and Jane (Einar) Stene with grandchildren John and Elisa.
