Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Bev Rogers, the Toole County patient who was diagnosed with COVID-19 last week. Bev died at Northern Rockies Medical Center on Saturday March 28, 2020. She was the second Montana resident to die from the virus. Her obituary will appear in this week’s issue.
A third Montanan from Madison County also died on Saturday evening. The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases was at 161 as of 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 29.
Bev’s family would like to thank everyone who provided her with such wonderful and compassionate care. Bev’s family shared their appreciation with the following statement:
Thank you to the staff at the Heritage Center. When she was living at your facility, she would mention you each by name and brag about how well you cared for her. You had concern for her until the end.
Also, to the staff at the Northern Rockies Medical Center, you fearlessly cared for our mom in the face of this horrible illness. We appreciate all that you did. You went above and beyond.
We cannot express enough appreciation to Dr. Clary. He and his staff at the clinic were always there for her as she has had several health challenges over the years, yet always felt confident in and enjoyed her doctor.
Thank you Dr. Clary for giving your all trying to save Mom. You worked hands on and tirelessly for her while she was in the hospital. Our community is so blessed to have a physician like you.
Thank you again and God bless all of you.
