Aryss Andrette Teterud

Aryss Andrette Teterud: October 4, 1935 – April 18, 2022

Graveside service for Aryss Teterud will be held at 1:00 p.m., Friday, April 29, 2022 at Sunset Memorial Gardens, Billings, MT. Heaven gained an Angel on April 18, 2022. Aryss went home to the Lord and was met at Heaven’s gates by her loving family and friends. Aryss was born on October 4th, 1935, in Washington State. Shortly after birth, Aryss was brought home to her family farm in Montana. Here, Aryss enjoyed spending time outdoors with her family. She gathered eggs from the chicken coup with her mom and helped her dad bring the cows down to milk. Aryss truly loved to be out with all the animals, but she especially looked forward to spending time with her horse, William.  From the late 1940’s to 2015, Aryss lived in Billings, MT. Throughout these years, Aryss enjoyed a plethora of activities. One of her favorite things to do was attend “Growth Thru Art.” Aryss was the 1st full-time student going twice a week for over 30 years. She enjoyed showing her artwork at the annual fair, and riding in the parade with her fellow students. Aryss used sign language to help her communicate, and she had fun sharing her knowledge with her friends. Aryss was blessed to spend her later years at The Legacy in Gillette, WY. Her family LOVED having her close! Aryss enjoyed daily visits from her niece and loved when she could get outside for a stroll. Also, Bingo was a “must” for Aryss. She looked forward to playing weekly and couldn’t wait to shout “BINGO!” Aryss’ laugh could be heard from wing to wing, and she couldn’t go down a hallway without hearing a friendly hello. Aryss was a fun-loving character who had a heart full of joy. She never met anyone who wasn’t an immediate friend. With an infectious personality, she could put a smile on anyone’s face. With Aryss’ many health issues throughout her life, it made her strength in God a very beautiful and wondrous gift.  Aryss is survived by her niece, Deanna (Mike); nephew, Drew (Claudia- deceased); many great nieces and nephews; and many great-great nieces and nephews.

Visitation will take place from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., Thursday, April 28, 2022 at Gillette Memorial Chapel. Matthew Edward Becker passed away at his home on April 15, 2022. Matthew the beloved son of Dr. Garry and Christi Becker was born on April 28, 1981 joining a sister and brother. Matthew grew up in Gillette attending public school and Heritage Christian School. As a young child his inquisitive nature led to disassemble small kitchen appliances, such as microwaves, that had outlived their usefulness. Shortly after this began his life-long relationship with computers. He worked in various aspects of this field for the rest of his life. He set up many websites including one of the first websites for a local radio station. All the members of the family relied on him for maintaining and improving their electronic communication systems. His expertise will be hard to replace, plus we might have to pay for it now. Everyone who met Matthew instantly felt like they had known him a long time. Matthew was the best brother in the world to his siblings. During his childhood and adolescence Matthew was noted for his joking and gentle pranks; usually but not universally well received. When he walked into a room everyone always greeted him. He was the first to come up with a joke and he had everyone laughing.  Matthew’s greatest attribute was his endearing kindness. He was the greatest uncle and great-uncle. He was always willing to help anywhere needed, especially when it came to his niece, nephews, great-niece and great-nephews. He enjoyed hanging out with his family and going to BBQ’s, driving around, drawing, and watching movies. He was always a phone call away and would help anyone. In the last four to five years he had demonstrated remarkable ability to overcome many drug related issues but his perseverance and with God’s help he was even able to quit cigarettes in January 2021. He did however continue to battle his mental demons to the end. He will be greatly missed. To his family he was absolutely the best. He meant the world to his family. Matthew is preceded in death by his grandparents, mother and brother-in-law, Ray Warren. He is survived by his father, Garry Becker; stepmother, Rita; sister, Lara; brother, Michael (Darla); niece, Lisa (Travis) White; nephews, Michael and Conner Becker; great-nephews, Maddox White, Teegan White, Tanner Hutton, Jaxon Becker and Johnathan Gorman; and great-niece, Khloe White.
