In memory of

Rosella Feller, age 76, of Helena

September 26, 1941 – November 30, 2017

Rosella Feller was born September 26, 1940 in Hardin, MT, to Steve and Veronica Feller.  She grew up in the family home and moved to Helena in 1975.  She lived at Parkside Manor until moving into Spring Meadow Resources group homes in 1979, where she resided until her death on November 30, 2017.

She received training at WestMont work services, 1976-1979, and Helena Industries, 1979-2000, when she retired to the Day Program at Spring Meadow Resources.

Rosella had a great sense of humor and loved to laugh and make others laugh by joking with them.  She had a big smile and charmed her way into our hearts.

She loved everyone, especially men.  She was one of the biggest flirts ever, frequently telling men, “You sure do look good!”  or “You sure do smell good!”

Her appearance was important to her so she loved getting dressed up, especially in red, having her hair done with ribbons and bows, and wearing her jewelry, some that she made herself.

She enjoyed life!  She would play Trouble for hours, beating most anyone who would play with her!  She loved music, animals, going into the community, socializing with others, chocolate, and Jesus.  She often called her favorite staff her “angel” and loved them dearly.

Rosella loved babies of all ages.  She loved to hold them when staff would bring them by and made trips to the hospital just to look through the window at the newborns.  Her best friend was her baby doll, Baby Lou.  She took good care of her and gave her lots of love through the years.

Rosella loved Christmas year-round.  She often said she felt “like a big Christmas present” and dressed as one on Halloween a couple of years.  This year she is spending Christmas with Jesus!  We know you will feel like a big Christmas present celebrating His birthday with Him, Rosella.  Merry Christmas Rosella!  We miss you!
