Georgia Ann (Ehlang) Flattum
February 26, 2020
Georgia Ann (Ehlang) Flattum was born December 28th, 1933 in Chinook, MT. to Ole and Agnes Ehlang. She was born a twin to brother George (Sam) Ehlang and grew up in a large, happy family.
Georgia Ann attended school in Chinook and graduated from Chinook High School in 1951. After graduation, she worked for the USDA-ASCS for many years before transferring to Bozeman in 1958. Shortly after her move, she met her late husband, J. Russell Flattum, and the two married in 1959. They would go on to have three children: Gary Sherry, and Dale.
Throughout her marriage, Georgia Ann worked as a secretary and a volunteer at Irving School in Bozeman. Additionally, she managed a second job at Haynes Real Estate for many years before finally retiring. In her free time, Georgia Ann was known for her volunteer work with the church and quilting for Lutheran World Relief.
She truly lived her life to the fullest—always baking, sewing, quilting, smiling, laughing, loving, and telling the best stories about her life to her grandchildren. She had the uncanny and extraordinary ability to always make people welcome in her home, and she was always making an impact through the church and her homelife. She touched the lives of many, and she will be deeply missed.
Georgia Ann is preceded in life by her sweetheart and husband, J. Russell Flattum; parents, Ole and Agnes Ehlang; sisters Dorothy Ross, Eileen Hivter, and Eunice Lott; brothers Carl King and George (Sam) Ehlang.
Georgia Ann is survived by children gary and Marcia in Ohio, Sherry and Steve in California, and Dale and Amy Jo in Minnesota; sister Janet of Missoula, MT.; brother Leonard (Swede) in Billings, MT.; sister-in-law Jane Ehlang in Helena, MT.; her dear friend Ellen, and grandchildren Katrina, Tessa, Johnathan, Eli and Sadie.
