Sorry to report that Joan Hurdle, a former legislator and longtime community activist in Billings, has died. She was 81 and suffering from abdominal cancer.
Her obituary contains this quotation from her: “The whole purpose of life is to learn how to make the world a better place, to have justice and democracy, to have everyone fed and housed, to have every child a wanted, educated and loved child, to have things, especially our planet, be truly beautiful.”
That says it better than I could. I hate losing her.
