Obituary for Mary Elizabeth Heine
Mary Elizabeth Heine passed away on the family ranch east of Roundup in
the home of Marc and Rose Emily Blum early on April 20, 2017. Mary was
born to Henry Herman "Harry" Hochmuth and Emily Henkle Hochmuth on July 2,
1925, at their farm house near Harrisonville, Missouri, just south of
Kansas City. The family moved to Montana between Mary's Junior and Senior year in
high school. Harry and Emily had purchased the ranch east of Roundup but
it was under lease so they moved west of Broadview to work on the Studebacher farm/ranch until their ranch became available. Mary graduated as Valedictorian at Broadview
High School and went on get her B.S. in Elementary Education with a minor
in Art at Eastern Montana College. While at EMC, Mary also played her
violin in the college orchestra. Upon graduation, Mary taught 2nd grade in
Billings, Roundup, and Laurel. In June of 1957, Mary married Ruben Henry
Heine of Billings, Montana. They later divorced and Mary moved to the
family ranch east of Roundup to raise her daughter Rose Emily Heine. With
her brother Joseph Hochmuth, she took care of her parents in their old age
and inherited half of the ranch for her good deeds. Mary loved God, bird
watching, collecting rocks, sheep, chickens, baby calves, music, painting
in oil, watercolor, and sketching, and teaching children. Mary loved
history and was a Charter and Life Member of the Musselshell Valley
Historical Museum in Roundup.
Mary was preceded in death by her parents, her former husband Ruben, her
brothers Joseph, Henry, and John, and a sister Mary Katherine who
passed away at an early age. Mary is survived by her daughter Rose Emily
Blum and son in law Marc Blum, and by numerous nieces and nephews whom she
lovely dearly. The family would like to thank Compassus/Rocky Montain Hospice for
helping keep Mary as comfortable as possible in her last days and also
thank the Pelan family for being such wonderful friends and neighbors. Cremation has
taken place and a memorial service is being planned later in the Spring.
Please send all memorials to the Musselshell Valley Historical Museum.
