Mary Lou Dimich, 78, passed away of natural causes at St. Vincent’s Health Care Center on February 5, 2006. She was the daughter of William and Lettie Graham and was one of three children.
Born June 17, 1927 in Pensacola Florida she and her family moved back to Fromberg in 1929. While growing up in Fromberg she worked on the ranch. At this time her life-long love of horses began. Mary Lou graduated as the valedictorian from Fromberg High School and went on to attend 2 years at MSU Bozeman. In 1952 she married Mike “Mitch” Dimich Jr. of Billings. She was a member of the Elk’s and the Moose Clubs. She enjoyed golf, fishing, bowling, and the outdoors. She loved to ride and show horses in parades. One of her great loves was to travel with Mitch and for them spend time at the condo in Tucson. Never a person to mince words, she will be remembered fondly and will be missed by friends and family.
She was preceded in death by her parents and her husband Mike in 1990. She is survived by “her boys” Mike, Mark, and Mitch and Julie Dimich of Billings. Her 3 grandchildren Marcy of Billings, Amy of Las Vegas, and Craig of Billings: Her sister Carol Morrison of Billings: Her brother Bill Graham of Las Vegas: Her Aunt Blanche Engebretson of Billings: and her brother-in-law William Dimich and family of Billings.
