Carole Anne (Scarborough) LaMont passed away on August 28, 2019, surrounded by her children, as well as Byron Doherty and Father Oliver Doyle, her very special friends. She was born on July, 27, 1938, in Billings, Montana, where she was raised with a large extended family.
A funeral liturgy will be held on September 4, 2019, at 11:00 p.m. at St. Ann's Cathedral.
Her loving husband, James preceded her in death. They were soul mates and had a marriage that was meant to be. Their home was filled with love, and open to all.
Family meant more to our mom than anything else there was. She thought nothing of calling any of her children, regardless if they were in a meeting, out of town, or involved in something critical at the moment, to insist they took her call to help with what she needed. Carole loved hosting family gatherings, and the more family she was surrounded by, the happier she was. Although, when it came to winding down, she made sure we were aware that she was the Matriarch of the family, and we would all leave when she was ready for us to.
Carole had many hobbies. Her children remember her Sweet Adeline’s years vividly, and can sing many of her songs to this day. She loved using her artistic talent whether it was painting, crocheting, embroidering or sewing her children’s outfits that she “believed” to be stylish. She blessed them with wonderful things such as party pants, or patchwork pants, which the nuns at their school thought were “wonderful”. Her treasured hobby was spending time with her grandchildren.
Carole had a close family growing up. She loved to talk about her father, who passed away very young. She was his cherished daughter. Carole and her mother, who passed away in 2006, were great coffee buddies. Her brother Paul (Bud) who also predeceased her left her with great memories that she loved to share. He had a special way of wording things, which turned many heads. Then there was her brother Roger, who she fondly referred to as her “baby brother”.
