Juanita was born in Bismarck, ND on March 8, 1929 to Gus and Arletta Weigum. She passed away on April 27, 2018. Her family moved to Klein, MT in 1936 and lived there for 12 years. She attended all of her schooling during this time.
She married Frank Brychta in 1954 and had 2 daughters, Suzanne and Diana. Frank passed in 1959.
Mom worked very hard to support her girls after Frank passed away. She worked at the Telephone Company, was a hairdresser for a time and a waitress at the Tastee Freez.
She met Darrell Brewer and they were married in 1965. To that union came Carol, along with Darrell’s
children, Danny and Darla.
Mom was a great homemaker but also loved bowling, golfing, motorcycling, cooking, playing cards, reading and babysitting grandchildren.
Mom and Dad split their time for 22 years between Arizona and Montana. Dad finally convinced Mom that his many motorcycles were fun and they enjoyed years of riding with friends. They were members of the Goldwing and Rainmakers motorcycle clubs in Billings and the Over the Hill Gang in Arizona. When Dad became ill and passed, the riding came to an end but Mom recently confided that she sure missed riding on that bike. She also stated that she especially loved their winters in Arizona and would have given anything to go back one more time.
Juanita is survived by her children; Suzanne (Keith) Larsen of Cody, WY, Diana (Marc) Crowley of Roundup, MT, Dan (Sheila) Brewer of Melstone, MT, Darla Brewer of Billings, MT and Carol (Sean) Lilleberg of Shepherd, MT, and her brother Bob (Ruth) Weigum and family of Great Falls, MT and many grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by Darrell, Gus and Arletta Weigum and her brothers- Jim and Ken.
According to her wishes, cremation has taken place and there will only be a private family memorial service with interment of her ashes in the family plot in the New Miner’s Cemetery.
Memorials may be made to Roundup Memorial Hospital or Riverstone Hospice.
Condolences may be expressed to the family at wierfuneralhome.com.
Mom, we will miss you dearly but hope you Rest in Peace with Dad by your side. We Love You.
