If you've been following Montana Bones' story, you know we are full of Montana history.  Our leather tooling inspiration, Jim Carrig (87) had an amazing mom. Her great-grandson's wife, Dana Holzer, had the sweet pleasure of meeting Maxine in her 90's.  She was sharp and had a self-deprecating humor that put me at ease.

Historian Ellen Baumler wrote about Maxine's early days at the Deaconess in the North Helena Valley.  Find her interesting article at:
