Thelma Christine Kielland passed away on Sunday afternoon, June 29, 2008. She was born the fifth of seven children on November 20, 1918 at Alma Center, Wisconsin, to Norwegian immigrant dairy farmer Thomas Anderson and his first-generation Norwegian wife, Clara Hanson.

In 1937, Thelma married Ludwig Daniels at Black River Falls, Wisconsin and then they moved to Livingston Montana, where he worked as a brakeman/conductor for the Northern Pacific Railroad until his death in 1945.

Being a young mother, she worked many long hours as a waitress at the Park Hotel and later the Murray Hotel to support her three young children.

Thelma remarried twice while in Livingston, first to Max Carlson, who died of a stroke, and then to Robert Hansen, who died in an Automobile accident.

After moving to Billings to attend Billings Business college, she met a friend of years past, Alfred Kielland, whom she married in 1974. They shared many happy years together until his passing in 1995.

Upon graduation from business college, she worked at Saint Vincent Hospital in the insurance office until she retired.
