Velda Noreen Loch

May 5, 1955 — January 7, 2024



Velda Noreen Loch, a beloved figure in Valier, Montana, passed away on January 7, 2024, leaving behind a legacy of dedicated service and cherished memories. Born on May 5, 1955, in Havre, Montana, she was the daughter of Bob and Donna Lund.

Velda's life was marked by her passion for gardening, finding solace and joy amidst her beloved plants, particularly her cherished monkey flowers. Her green thumb and love for nature were evident in the vibrant gardens she tended throughout her life.

Her commitment to her community was unparalleled. Velda served as the Mayor of Valier for several years, leaving an indelible mark on the town's progress and development. Her dedication extended beyond local governance; she played an integral role in the Port of Authority and the Valier Area Development Corporation, contributing significantly to the town's economic and infrastructural growth.

Velda was a loving mother to her son, Ian Loch, whom she leaves behind. She is preceded in death by her husband, Thomas "Poe" Loch, whose memory she cherished deeply, and her parents, Bob and Donna Lund.

Her warmth, leadership, and unwavering commitment to her community will be dearly missed by all whose lives she touched. Velda will be remembered not only for her civic contributions but also for her kindness, generosity, and the beauty she brought to the world through her passion for gardening. Her legacy will continue to flourish in the hearts of those who knew and admired her.
