PHYLLIS WAS BORN IN GREAT FALLS, MT — Phyllis M. Halmes went home to Jesus on May 5, 2020. She is dancing and singing praises to our Father in heaven alongside the love of her life, Eugene M. Halmes, who preceded her to their eternal home in 2007.

Phyllis was born in Great Falls, MT, to Judy and Harry Landgren on June 27, 1931. They, along with her beloved sister, Barb [Landgren] Osborne, have also gone home to Jesus. Her eldest daughter, Susan [Halmes] Jacobs, made that journey as well in May of 2015.

During our growing up years on the ranch between Belt and Highwood, our parents took in and helped make a difference in the lives of quite a few “foster” sons and one “foster” daughter. Some were wards of the state, but most were not. We counted 22 over the years! Mom and Dad took in kids who needed a little extra love. When they sold the ranch at Belt and bought the one at White Sulphur Springs, they continued taking in boys there. Some became my forever brothers and permanent members of our family.
