Ada Marie Homewood, a longtime Frannie resident who was a volunteer librarian and 4-H leader, died Thursday, Aug. 16, 2007. She was 86.

Services were held Monday, Aug. 20, at the Methodist Church in Deaver. Burial followed in Deaver Cemetery.

Ada Marie was born Oct. 10, 1920, at the family home in Quartz, Mont. She was the last of nine children.

Ada married David K. Bement in April 1938. They had three children. She was widowed in 1945.

She married Harvey Homewood on Nov. 14, 1952, and moved to the family farm near Frannie. Harvey’s failing health forced the couple to sell the farm and move into town in March 1975.

Ada Marie Homewood enjoyed the birthday club, knitting, making patchwork quilts, gardening and canning. She enjoyed the fair, and won numerous blue ribbons with her needle work and canned foods.

“Her family would like people to remember her when she was living at home and feeling well,” family members said. “She will be missed by many.”

Survivors are her children David Bement of Texas and Marie Spohn of Oregon; special friends Delbert and Pat Johnson of Frannie; seven grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her siblings, two husbands, son Larry Bement and one granddaughter.
