Lolo  -  Theresa Engelhard Savelkoul, age 83, passed away peacefully in her home in Lolo, Montana on September 3, 2020. She was born on September 21, 1936 in Foxholm, North Dakota to Isidor and Alice Engelhard. She married Jack Savelkoul November 4, 1954 in Minot, North Dakota. Theresa was a matriarch. A kind and gentle soul, and mother to many. She raised six children, 11 grandchildren (Deidre Savelkoul, Brittany Spiers, Ali Wittich, Aaron Porch, Nicquel Klaudt, Brandy Charette, Courtney Thiel, Desirae Savelkoul, Madison Wittich, Ryan Porch, Andrea Porch and seven great grandchildren. She was the sweet, even-natured mother to a family full of large personalities. Her four daughters describe her with words like “tough, strong, Wonder Woman”; while her grandchildren would best describe her with sentiments of “giving, thoughtful, understanding, gentle, warm and always smiling” – which together best describes the evolution of her feminine kindness, strength and beauty. Theresa had deep faith in God, and was a regular churchgoer. Her life was a living example of Bible verse, Ephesians 4:32 – “and be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.” Theresa is survived by her husband Jack, her four daughters Cindy (Ed) Sidwell, Sherri (Roger) Porch, Candace (Art) Wittich, Shelley (Bruce) Porch and one sister Rita Engelhard. She is proceeded in death by her two sons Steve Savelkoul and John Savelkoul, grandson Aaron Porch, son-in-law Ed Sidwell, brother Elmer Engelhard, sisters Marian Engelhard and Darlene Richter. She will be smiling down on all her family and friends from heaven and will be deeply missed by all. Theresa’s family will celebrate her life on Sunday, September 13, 2020, 20860 Jones Road, Florence, MT 59833. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that each person who knew and loved Theresa do one small act of kindness for someone else in her honor.
