Joel Tande, the son of Ludvig and L. Madelyn Tande, was born in Plentywood, Montana on July 6, 1950. He died
peacefully at his home on June 12, 2007. Joel grew up in Plentywood, graduated from Plentywood High School
in 1968, and attended the University of Montana in Missoula. He married and had two children, David Ludvig
and Amber Joelle. He worked for several years in Seattle, Washington and then later returned to Plentywood.
Joel started his own business, Tande Computing and Airtime, ISP. One of the things he liked most about being
in the computer business was that it gave him the opportunity of linking the challenges of today’s technology
with the needs of his customers.
Joel had a passion for aviation. He earned his pilot’s license and one of his greatest joys was sharing the
cockpit with his brother. Joel was also no stranger in the kitchen. His love for
cooking was only surpassed by his love for sharing what he cooked. There are many who can say they have
enjoyed some of Joel’s homemade bread, cheesecake, smoked turkey, salmon or prime rib.
Joel’s knowledge of the Lord’s saving grace was evident in his tender and kind demeanor. His ear was ready to listen, his heart was ready to love,
and his soul was ready to minister. Joel’s sense of humor was a divine gift.

brother, Ludvig Kris and his wife Judy Jo of Pensacola, FL; sisters, Lydia Tande, of Roundup, MT, Dr. Korinne Tande and her companion, Zoon

The youngest of 7 children of Hans and Borghilda (Halvorson) Skillingberg, Agnes Elizabeth was born
December 3, 1909 on the family farm east of Homestead. She grew up on the farm, graduated from Medicine
Lake High School when she was 16 years old, and then earned a teacher’s certificate from Minot State Teacher’
s College. Her first teaching job was at Richland, Montana; and later taught at Sidney, and Homestead,
Montana, before she started at the Hamley School, south of Outlook. It was there she met Bill Lee; they were
married at First Lutheran Church in Homestead June 15, 1947.
November 20, 2003. Agnes was Bill’s “right-hand man” on the farm, hauling grain and even doing some of the summer fallowing: and her attention
to detail was noted in that if she missed a weed, on the next round she would stop the tractor and pull it by hand! She continued teaching at Outlook
until she retired in 1983. She had a special gift for working with young kids, and especially loved reading to her kindergarten classes. An
accomplished cook and baker, she is remembered for her Norwegian specialty baked goods and lefse; and was never still even in idle moments,
she was still busy with her crocheting! For may years she was active in the Plentywood WELCA’s quilting group; she and Bill were active members
of Plentywood Lutheran Church, and, of course, Agnes taught Sunday school, too! In recent years, although Bill and Agnes remained members at
Plentywood Lutheran Church, they usually attended worship at Highland Church in Outlook.
Agnes is survived by her husband of 60 years, Bill, at Sheridan Memorial Nursing Home. Although she never had children of her own, her extended
family of nieces and nephews were like Bill and Agnes’ own children: in the years after the death of Agnes’ sister, Hilda, her daughters Lois and
Patty, grew especially close to her. Her nephews Larry and Harlan Skillingberg spent most summers with Agnes and Bill through their high school
and college years. Besides her parents, Agnes was preceded in death by her four brothers and two sisters. Fulkerson Funeral Home of
Plentywood has charge of arrangements.

Practical Nursing program at North Dakota State University in Williston with honors, then went on toward a R.N. degree at Montana State in
Bozeman. Before she was able to complete that program she began the struggle with bipolar disorder that consumed the rest of her life. The
disease took her career as a nurse, prevented her from continuing to participate in hunting and the shooting sports, and took her ability to play the
piano. But even though it forced her to struggle through some dark times, it could not fully conquer Kim’s zest for life, her passion for the family

All her life Kim cared for everyone else before her self; she was always upbeat, outgoing, and a born caregiver. Since she was a child, she assumed
responsibility for helping care for her grandparents and her mother during difficult times, and was always there when she was needed. She was

harvest seasons. Although she lived in Billings, Bozeman, Gillette, and most recently in Dickinson, ND where she worked at St. Luke’s Nursing
Home, “home” was always on the farm with Larry and Doreen. Kim loved swimming and at one time participated in a synchronized swimming team
in Gillette, and she enjoyed playing cards and games with older folks .... whether a group of farmers at home, or with the nursing home patients she
