Rosetta "Rusty" Lowry was born on July 19, 1940, Malta, MT, the daughter of Ludwig and Loretta Kuntz. She grew up and went to school in Harlem, MT. Rusty married Milton Lowry on June 7, 1958, in Chinook, MT. They lived in Sidney, MT then later moved to Belgrade, MT, where she raised her four children while selling Avon and Tupperware. They moved to Hogeland in 1986 where she worked at the post office and the North 40. Later when her kids were grown, Rusty lived in Havre, MT for a number of years before returning to Sidney, MT to be closer to her daughters. While in Havre, she spent most of her time volunteering at the Giveaway House; a place close to her heart. Rusty was a strong-willed woman with her own distinct opinion on everything. That accompanied by her delightful, often warped sense of humor made her fun to be around. Rusty was a passionate reader of romance novels, loved puzzles and playing word games. She adored calligraphy, bingo, and card and board games, also. She had a special place in her heart for her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Rusty never missed sending everyone a birthday and holiday greeting card.
