Thelma Leona Martin Jungers passed away on April 30, 2013.  She was born to Caroline and Edward Martin on January 26, 1938 at Vanada, Mont. Her family moved to Florence when she was two years old.  Thelma attended Florence-Carlton School, where she met and later married Dick Jungers.  They were married for 55 years. They moved to Missoula where they had five children before moving to Ronan, which became their true home.  They loved the area and the people.  They bought the Pheasant Lounge and after 15 years they added a steak and burger menu, where Thelma did all the catering.  After 29 years, they retired. Thelma was a Boy Scout leader, Brownie leader and ran Sunday School at the Ronan Catholic Church.  She worked at the Ronan School Lunch Program for approximately six years.  She was thrilled whenever a child would recognize and hug her because they knew her from school. Dick and Thelma spent their time attending Griz games and wrestling matches.  Thelma was very family oriented.  Her favorite times were when all her children were home.  She loved the holidays.  She had a great sense of humor and an infectious laugh.  You would never come to her home that there wasn’t a jar full of homemade cookies.  She was easy to please, the littlest things made her happy.  She was a genuine good person with a gentle soul.  She never had a bad word to say about anyone.  She was quite classy. Thelma loved her home and flowers.  She loved tinkering.  She talked a lot about her grandchildren and was tickled when someone commented “I know your grandchildren are perfect!” She was preceded in death by: her parents, Caroline and Edward Martin; her sister, Alice Thoft; her son, Richard Jungers; and her husband, Dick Jungers. She is survived by: her daughters, Terry (Jungers) and Mike Wagner of Rapid City, S.D., Sandy Jungers of Crabtree, Ore., and Laurie (Jungers) and Ron Morgan of Missoula; son, Mike and Aow Jungers of Lacy, Wash.; and a grandson that they raised, Shawn and Raylene Jungers of Pablo; 10 grandchildren, and 14 great-grandchildren who will truly miss her. A visitation will start on Sunday evening at 4 p.m. at Foster Funeral Home Chapel in St. Ignatius, with Mass being celebrated at 2 p.m. Monday in the St. Ignatius Catholic Mission in St. Ignatius.  Burial is planned for 4:30 p.m. Monday in the Ronan Cemeteries, where she will be laid to rest by her husband Dick.
