Connita Linn Harlow


Connita Linn Harlow, 56, of Belgrade, Mont., went to join her Savior, Jesus Christ, on April 20, 2021, after a lengthy battle with pulmonary hypertension.

Connita was born on March 6, 1965 to Larry and Gerry Hawkins in Mexico. It is there that she met her lifelong partner and husband, Charlie. They were married on June 27, 1987 and soon relocated to Montana, where their family expanded with the birth of three wonderful children.

Connita’s faith and family were two of the most important things in her life and she was the best mother, wife, sister, and daughter that anyone could ask for. Connita loved the outdoors and always enjoyed family outings, either camping or floating the local rivers. In her younger years, Connita was also quite a hunter and fisherman. Anyone who stopped by her home quickly noticed her flair for holiday decorating. Connita was also an exceptional cook, as anyone who got to enjoy her cuisine could attest.

Survivors include her parents, Larry and Gerry Hawkins of Bozeman, Mont.; husband, Charlie of Belgrade, Mont.; two sons, Matthew of Bozeman Mont. and Brandyn of Belgrade, Mont.; daughter, Hannah, stationed at Fort Belvoir, Va.; brother, Brent and his wife Candy and family of Churchill, Mont.; four sisters-in-law and numerous nieces and nephews.

Connita was preceded in death by both her paternal and maternal grandparents.

Memorial services will be held on Friday, April 30, at 11 a.m., Springhill Presbyterian Church-Legacy Location, Belgrade
