She also volunteered with the Pink Ladies at Columbus Hospital, Great Falls Central Mothers Club, and Ladies of Charity. She was an active lifelong member of the Catholic Church and rarely missed a service over her lifetime.

Rick, Glorine and family,
What a beautiful and gracious lady. I knew Mrs. Eastman several years ago and then had the pleasure of chatting with her at my place of work a few years back. She never changed. Still the wonderful person she has always been. It was a pleasure to have met this beautiful lady.
Rest in peace..
Sue
