Julie’s Tree

In honor of Julie Halverson, Master Gardeners would like to plant a memorial tree in a Billings city park. If you wish to donate to this cause, please make your check payable to City of Billings. Once all funds are collected for the tree and plaque, we will submit the checks to the city to make the purchase. Checks can be mailed to Merita Murdock, 649 Brookwood Dr., Billings, MT 59101-7050. Please mark on the memo area “Julie’s Tree”.

If you have additional questions, feel free to call Merita at 690-3754 or Corry Mordeaux at 545-7166.


I just wanted to let everyone know that I have secured enough funds to purchase a memorial tree and plaque for Julie Halverson.

The family has decided the tree will be placed in Lillis Park and we plan to have a dedication sometime during early July when the family will be gathered in the Billings area.

I will pass along the final plans when they are arranged.

Thank you,

Merita Murdock
