Victor – Barbara Alice Langeslag, 81, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on April 16, 2022 at St. Patrick’s Hospital surrounded by her family. She was born January 6, 1941 in Shelbyville, IN. to Chester and Wrethal Lancaster. She graduated from Shelby County High School in 1959. She married Lew Wilkinson on September 4, 1959. From that union they had three children Lisa, Janet (stillborn) and Lyle. The family moved to Montana in February 1973. Several years later she and Lew divorced. Barbara had a lifelong career in banking. She retired three different times from Farmers State Bank after 20+ years. She loved working there so much – she kept coming back! Everyone teased her that she just liked the retirement parties! On January 17, 1991 Barbara married an awesome and loving helpmate Thomas Langeslag. The epitaph they have picked for their headstone at Victor Cemetery sums up their 30+ years together: We Laughed, We Loved, We Lived, Because of Jesus – We still Live. Barbara was preceded in death by her parents, her brother and sister-in-law Earl and Marilyn Lancaster, daughter Janet (stillborn), grandson Cody Wilkinson, several aunts, uncles and cousins. Survivors include her husband Thomas of Victor, MT, daughter Lisa (Charlie) Roberts of Victor, MT, son Lyle (Annetta) Wilkinson of Lake Mary Ronan, MT, Stepdaughter Terri Senske and stepson Scott (Ann) Lang of Chanhassen, MN, grandchildren Levi (Lisa) Wilkinson, Corie (KT) King, Tyler Wilkinson, Leland and Jennifer Fisher, Gabrielle (Dakota) Milligan, Madison and Trevor Lang and Jack Senske. She was also blessed with two great grandchildren Landon and Paislee Wilkinson. Barbara enjoyed being a wife and mother but her greatest joy was becoming a grandmother – so much so that to many of you she was known as “Grandma Barb.” Mom shared with us that her greatest joys were the following in the order stated: Faith, Family, Friends, Adventures and her Life overall. This is evident to everyone who knew her and can be seen and felt throughout their home. Mom loved and knew how to have fun! She was active and dedicated to her Lord and church family throughout her life. She was a blessing and encouragement to so many. We have witnessed this from so many of you who have reached out to us during this difficult time. Thank you and God bless you. Services will be held on Monday April 25, 2022 at 3:00 at Community Baptist Church in Stevensville, MT with a reception following in the Fellowship Hall. Condolences and memories may be shared with the family at www.whitesittfuneralhome.com.
