It is with great sadness that the family of Carrie Dawson Boe announces her passing after a brief but strong battle of cancer, on Nov. 20, 2017, at the age of 61. She passed away at her home in Columbus, Mont., surrounded by her family.
Carrie was born in Laurel, Mont., on March 28, 1956, to Keith Dawson and Mildred (Mickey) Dalhstrom Dawson. She recently celebrated her 40th wedding anniversary with her husband Tim Boe. They got married on Sept. 2, 1977, in Laurel, Mont. Shortly after their marriage Tim and Carrie moved to Missoula, Mont. They lived here for 37 years. Here, Carrie became a Pediatric Dental Assistant for Dr. Nordstrom’s office for 25 years. She loved the work she did, and the kids she worked with. In 2015, they moved to Columbus, Mont., and built their dream home for their retirement. She worked at the Stillwater County News at the time of her death.
Carrie is survived by her husband, Tim Boe, and her children, Kyle, Kendal and Sam (son-in-law); her sister Jamie Powell and her husband Scott. Carrie will also be forever remembered by her in-laws, nieces, nephews and extended family and dear friends. Carrie was preceded in death by Tim and Carrie’s first son, Scott, and her parents.
A small gravesite memorial will be held on Saturday, Dec. 2, 2017, at 1 p.m. at Sunset Memorial in Billings, Mont. Here she will be laid to rest with her mother.
