E. Ward Mendenhall, age 99, passed away on Monday, February 17, 2020 at Polson Health & Rehab. He was born on March 16, 1920 in a rural setting near Wolf Point, Montana the son of Elbert Henry and Anna (Ward) Mendenhall.

He attended grade school at McCone County Public School and graduated from Ray North Dakota High School in 1939. He was inducted into the U.S. Army Air Corps in September 1943 in Stockton, CA as a mechanic and was discharged in September 1945 and worked as an aircraft mechanic for some time.

Ward was involved in construction in the oil fields in North Dakota, operating heavy equipment building location pads and roads. He also worked on the Libby Dam construction in the early 1970’s.

In 1963, he married Mary Evonick. They had met in Plentywood, MT. They had over 56 years together.
Ward always lent a hand to friends and neighbors. He always greeted someone with a smile and a firm handshake and an invitation to “come back for sure”. He was always a true gentleman.

He and Mary arrived in the Mission Valley in the early 1970’s. He and Mary resided outside of Ronan since 1973 and they enjoyed their retirement years with some travel and making sure that the landscaping in their yard was always in tip top shape.

Cremation has taken place and no services are planned at this time.

We were neighbors of Ward and Mary for many years. Our kids have known them since they were born. We would visit almost weekly and there was always a crystal candy dish on the table that the kids got to choose a piece of candy from it. I never saw Ward without a smile on his face, and he and Mary always made us feel at home. My thoughts are with you, Mary.
