Obituary – Chase Ferguson

The heavens exploded with riotous joy and laughter at the homecoming of our beloved mom and friend, Chase Ferguson, 80, on Monday, June 19, 2017, at 6:30 a.m. at Cabinet Peaks Medical Center in Libby.  We who remain, struggle to contend with the sudden and unrelenting void, but push past the pain, knowing with utmost confidence and peace that we will peer into those shimmering, love-filled eyes again.

To her, but a moment. To us, what will seem a very long time.

Those left behind include her loving son and daughter-in-law, Damon and Lizz Ellis of Felton, Calif.; granddaughter Jessica Ellis of Felton, Calif.; her daughter of the heart, Annette Galioto, of Troy;  and brothers and sisters galore, who, like ministering angels, brought much joy into her life: Diane and Steve, Mike and Jana, Sherry and Paul, Pastors Charlie and Judith Ellen, Damon and family, Robert and Sara, Sharon, Linda and Delbert, Karen, John, Eric, Annette, and the list goes on!

Come and celebrate her life with us at the Bridge of Hope Fellowship at 2425 MT Hwy 37on July 8, 2017, at 1p.m. The church is located approximately two and a half miles north of Libby.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Pets for Life, an organization Chase loved and heartily supported.

Please, bring happy memories to share and stay for an informal reception, following the service.
