Print Obituary   Home Page All Obituaries


Missoula – Rexine “Dean” nee Montgomery Hennies died suddenly Wednesday, 14 June 2017 of a massive stroke in Missoula, Montana. She was born 10 July 1950 and was 66 years young. Her family attributes her death to the Veterans Administration’s policy of delay and deny after her body was weakened by lack of proper and timely receipt of medicines and referrals to doctors. Mrs. Hennies was born in San Francisco, California to Venice nee Gordon and Gilbert Montgomery and graduated from Hamilton High school in Hamilton, Montana in 1968. She joined the Air Force in 1969 and after serving her country for four years in Virginia and Alaska returned to Montana to work at the University of Montana in Missoula. Although Rexine did not pursue a degree she did take many courses at the U of M that satisfied a wide ranging curiosity. She did sport parachute jumping while in the Air Force and met her husband John “Nuts” Michael Hennies on a motorcycle ride to Sturgis Week in South Dakota. They were married on 10 August 1991 on top of Homestake Pass at Homestake Lake, Montana with an impressive number of motorcycling friends mixed with relatives of the happy couple to celebrate the occasion. Rexine Hennies did not have children. She is survived by her husband John Hennies of Missoula, sisters, Mitzi Van Asdlan of Alaska, Nola Notman of Oregon and brother Burt Montgomery of Idaho. No service will be held but a party in Rexine’s memory will be announced at a later date.

Hey John,

I'm so sorry to hear of Rexine's death. It's never easy to deal with a loved one's death, especially if it's unexpected. But she'll always be riding with you.

Rex was an original with a dry sense of humor and coy smile; I looked forward to seeing her daily on my runs to the University computer department where she gave confidence that she and her team had everything under control. (With computers? ;0) I last visited with her at a UM Retiree's luncheon, and will miss just knowing she's not with us. Keep the good memories alive.

So sorry to hear about Rex. She was one of a kind. Please accept my condolences, and may she rest in peace until she and Nuts meet again.

Was saddened to read of Rexie's passing. I enjoyed seeing her at the clinic. She was quiet but one could get a smile from her every so often. Take care of yourself and God bless. Nurse Jan (retired) VA
