LaRhea Christopherson, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Sept. 16, 2012.

She was born on Dec. 23, 1934, in Miton, Utah, to Earl and Vivadell Davis, being the youngest of five children.

LaRhea had three kids by her first marriage, Bud Burt of Elko, Nev., Bob Bert (Janice) of Missoula and Gayla Cleveland (Russ) of Stevensville. On March 2, 1968, she married Harlan Christopherson, the love of her life and best friend. They had two children, Wanda Olsen (Randy) of Helena and Teresa McMurtrey (Bryan) of Helena.

LaRhea loved and cherished her 14 grandkids and nine great-grandkids and many surrogate grandkids she acquired along the way.

LaRhea was known to many as the head cook at the school, for her delicious cinnamon rolls and chili, as well as for her sewing and craft projects.

Cremation has taken place. No service is planned. In lieu of flowers, donations will be accepted by St. Peter’s Cancer Center in her memory. She was dearly loved and will be greatly missed.

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters. If you receive an error after submitting a comment, please contact us.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps:

    1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

    2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

    3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

    4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

    5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at editor@helenair.com. This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

    6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

    7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

    8. Your comment is in really poor taste.

    9. Don't write a novel. If your comment is longer than the article you're commenting on, you might want to cut it down a bit. Lengthy comments will likely be removed.
