Thelma Beyl

On January 24, 2023, after playing pinochle with family and friends Thelma Beyl, age 78, collapsed in the parking lot of the Haugo Center. She passed away later that evening at Rosebud Health Care Center.

Thelma was born on December 9, 1944, in Buffalo, Wyoming to Don and Irene Cornelius Deitchler. She was the third of six children. The family moved to Slaughterhouse Creek south of Forsyth, Montana when Thelma was in elementary school. Mom liked to share the family shenanigans including a story about her brother shooting her mother in the forehead with a bb gun and another how Grandpa Don conned the kids into pulling weeds by miraculously finding chiclets under every weed he pulled.
