Our mother, Beverly Jean Comstock, passed away Dec. 22, 2021. She was born in Malta, Mont., on June 23, 1943, to Denver and Myrtle Hould. Bev graduated from Malta High School in 1961. She attended Columbus School of Nursing and received her BSN from Montana State University. Bev married Patrick Comstock on Sept. 14, 1968. Bev and Pat were blessed with two children, Ian and Shawna.
The role of mother and grandmother was Bev’s greatest accomplishment. Faith and family were the center of her life. Bev was a lifelong devout Catholic with a strong devotion to the Rosary. Bev was a strong woman, yet she lived every day with compassion, empathy and unconditional love. Her life was an example of grace, dignity and kindness. She was an amazing listener and friend, and her gentle loving spirit will be missed by so many.
