Julie “Nan” Tash

Julie “Nan” Tash


Julie “Nan” (Turney) Tash passed away doing what she loved: serving others while working cattle in the Big Hole Valley.

John 14:12 Let not your heart be troubled; believe in GOD believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.

Julie came into the world on June 16, 1958, in Philipsburg. She was born to Jack and Yuvanne Turney—giving them the best Father’s Day present a couple could ask for.

Shortly thereafter, the family moved to the Big Hole Valley, and later onto the Ruby Valley.

Ranch life instilled in her: a great work ethic; good humor; “developing character and making work fun;” a dedication to our community; and, an unconditional love and solid faith in GOD—all of which will be passed onto many generations to come.

In 1976, Julie graduated from Sheridan High. She then decided it was time to further her studies at Pillsbury Baptist College in Minnesota.

A short time later, she met Guy Lalicker while attending Western. Out of this marriage, three great daughters were born.

Years later, Julie remarried and started a new chapter in her life with her soul-mate, Billy Tash. They were a perfect match for each other. While we all agree that her life was cut way too short, these were some of the happiest of times for Julie.

Julie is preceded in death by: her father, Jack Turney; brothers Bobby and Jaydee Turney; and many cherished aunts and uncles.

She is survived by: her husband, Billy Tash; children Angie (Jeff) Himmelberg, Lyndsey Lalicker, Tanya Lalicker and Noah Bronner, Aaron (Kami) Tash, Kyle (Jayme) Tash and Kacee-Jo (Dallas) Mock; Julie’s first husband, Guy Lalicker; grandkids Cache Lalicker-Hartkopf, Kaiser and Sienna Himmelberg, Tess and Taytum Tash, Adrijana Bronner, Brooks and Daxton Mock, and Ladeley Tash; mother Yuvanne Turney; siblings Cheri Burke, Vicki (Matt) Woods, Jackie (Mark) Peterson, Doug Wilson; sister-in-laws Jenny Turney and Carol Rossen; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Psalm 143:8 Let me hear Thy loving-kindness in the morning; For I trust in Thee; Teach me the way in which I should walk: For to Thee I lift up my soul.

Celebration of Life services were held Monday at Mountain View Baptist Church in Twin Bridges.
