Teresa Granier, age 94, of Missoula, passed away of natural causes on Monday, September 28, 2020, at Grizzly Peak of Missoula.

Teresa was born on November 15, 1925, and raised in Walkerville “Butte” Montana. She attended St. Lawrence Grade School and Butte High. After high school, Teresa worked at a music store for six years and then at Miners Bank until 1968 when she married Ben Granier. Once married, they lived in Libby until moving to Missoula in 1971.

In 1976, Teresa joined St. Patrick’s Hospital Guild where she volunteered or worked as she referred to her volunteer position, one day a week for 29 years at the Surgery Waiting Area. Teresa loved volunteering and believed that the Guild enriched her life in many ways.

She also enjoyed spending time with family and friends, the symphony, gardening – especially caring for her roses, and baking. Every Christmas, Teresa baked all her favorite cookies and gave plates of them to for her friends.

Teresa was preceded in death by her husband, Ben Granier; father and mother, Batt and Hilda Romano, Brother Ed Romano and Sister Helen Sullivan. She is survived by her niece, Lynn Sullivan and many dear friends.

A special thanks to Harvest Health Care (Kaley, Shawn, Jessica and Misty) and Hospice of Missoula (Ama, Christine and Adam) for their loving care.

A family conducted memorial service will be at 11:00 a.m., on Tuesday, October 20, 2020, at St. John’s Catholic Church in Butte. Burial will follow at Holy Cross Cemetery in Butte with arrangements under the care of Garden City Funeral Home of Missoula.

I took this photo of Teresa's home when she was in the nursing home and gave her a copy. She never wanted to be there and always thought she'd come home one day. I can still see her in the breezeway watering her flower pots. I miss her every day since my living room window looks directly at her house as in this photo. She always had special treats for the kids and plates of cookies at Christmas. Just as Janna mentioned, she would always invite me in to sit at the kitchen table and she'd listen to me tell her about whatever was going on in my life at the time. She liked to catch up on what was happening with my children and grandchildren. When my brother Mike came to live with me he formed a special bond with her. He'd get her newspaper out of her box every morning and deliver it to her. She adored him, even tho she'd say "I hate that long hair he's grown!!" He was an old hippie that worked for years at the VA Hospital and always kept his hair short. Upon retiring he never cut it again and wore it in a ponytail. When Mike passed, Teresa and I would sit and reminisce about all the good times we had with him. My sweet man Chuck and I would visit her in the nursing home. She thought the world of him. In fact the last time we visited her she barely recognized me - but she certainly knew who Chuck was!! I can't say enough about the special person she was and how much I grew to love her. She will be missed.

I too lived in the neighborhood with Teresa, she and I spent countless hours on the phone usually late at night and I will forever remember all the stories she shared with me and the advice she gave me. It brings me a smile knowing she is with her loved ones. Rest In Peace my sweet friend. Love Charlene

Teresa was our neighbor for 41 years..she was like a member of our family..we had many many fun times together..including lots of July 4th celebrations and Thanksgiving meals. She was like a Mom to me and a Grandmother to our children. We will dearly miss her.

Growing up, I was sent over to Teresa’s to do tasks.. put out the trash, pick up apples, or help weed the garden, but inevitably, I would end up at her round kitchen table, with pushed aside newspapers and unopened mail, eating cookies and other sweets Teresa had made, and telling her all about my troubles and fun and just everything going on in my little childhood world. She would listen in her chair next to the patio door and nod her head and chuckle. Then when I finally stopped talking and realized it was probably time to go, we would say our goodbyes over and over, as I’m walking back home next door, getting further and further away, and at last, shouting, “Bye Teresa! Thank you!”
