Carol S. Christensen, 82. Our wife, sister, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother left us January 23, 2024 for her Heavenly home. She was born in Billings, Montana on May 12, 1941, to Pearl and Frank DeVille. Carol was raised in Bearcreek, Montana. She attended primary education there, and then became a Belfry Bat in High School.
Carol loved her kids, grandkids and was thrilled to have the addition of great grandchildren! She was an avid reader. She loved making peanut butter rice crispy treats for her grandkids and banana bread for all. She truly enjoyed family get together whether it was at Flathead Lake or her visits to Bearcreek. Spending time with family was of great importance to Carol.
Carol married Gardy Van Soest and had two sons, Jeff and Deron Van Soest. Carol later married Dave Christensen and added his children to their family. The two families blended well.
Carol worked as a legal secretary in Billings and Bozeman for many years. She and Dave moved from Bozeman to Kalispell where she worked for a CPA and law firm several years, retiring twice from the law firm. She enjoyed traveling around to visit family and friends. She joined her sister Beverly on a once in a lifetime trip to Australia to visit their cousin. They also had several fun trips to Arizona to family. She & Dave were very involved in their church and loved their bible study group.
