Obituary for Charlotte Mae Hewankorn


Charlotte Mae Hewankorn, age 67, of Polson, MT, passed away on Friday, January 13, 2017 at St. Joseph Hospital. She was born on June 12, 1949 in St. Ignatius, MT, to Charles & Alice Hewankorn. She grew up on the Flathead Indian Reservation and attended Ursuline Catholic School in St. Ignatius.

Charlotte completed her Cosmetology Degree and was an excellent beautician. She also was a very talented artist.

As she grew, she loved to travel about freely. She spent a lot of time in the Spokane area. She was even known to "hitch" a ride on the trains.

She was an extremely strong woman who truly cherished her family & loved ones. She was the person who would do anything to help someone out who needed it. Her wry sense of humor was completely unforgettable and her personality was larger than life.

She was a proud member of the Salish & Kootenai Tribes. She loved going to Pow Wows and playing Stick-game was one of her favorite things. Whenever you visited her, you could always count on hearing all different types of music playing on her "Boom box".

She will be so deeply missed by more people than can be mentioned; and she loved them all.

She is survived by her mother, Alice Hewankorn of Hot Springs, MT; her brother, Levi "Jerry" Hewankorn of Pablo, MT; her sister, Rosalie Roberson of Englewood, FL; and her daughters, Shannon Hewankorn of Polson, MT & Mary Sue Hewankorn of Spokane, WA; 11 grandchildren; 1 great grandchild & numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

She was preceded in death by her father, Charles Hewankorn; her brothers, Laverne & Leland "Jimi" Hewankorn; and her son, Don Collins III.

Traditional Wake Services will be held in Elmo, MT at the Elmo Hall beginning on Thursday, January 19, 2017; with Rosary at 7:00 PM. Mass will be held on Friday, January 20, 2017 at 10:00 am; with burial to follow at Dayton Cemetery.
