Edwina Amyotte Obituary

Edwina Kay Amyotte, 77, of Lodge Grass, Montana, went home to be with her Lord Jesus on December 17, 2023 while at Sheridan Memorial Hospital.  She was born to Edwin Toineeta and Joy Yellowtail on September 3, 1946 in Billings, Montana.  Her Apsaalooké Indian name, Úuttachia, “White Weasel”, was given to her before her birth. She was a child of the Greasy Mouth clan and a member of the Night Hawk Society. From the time that Edwina was a young girl, she loved traditional dancing and spent many of her young years participating.

She was raised in the Lodge Grass area along with her siblings, and graduated from Lodge Grass High School in May of 1964.

Edwina married Raymond Pisano in 1964 and from this union Tony and Tammy were born. They were later divorced. In June of 1975, she received an Associate of Arts and a Bachelor of Science and Education degree from Eastern Montana College.  In 2005-2006 she was nominated for the 10th Annual Edition of Who’s Who Among American Teachers.  She taught for approximately 25 years and had to medically retire.    

Edwina married Stephen Amyotte on July 24th, 1975 in Sheridan, Wyoming, and together raised their children, Tony, Tammy, and Julee and Mary Amyotte.  They were married for 48 years and lived at the family home in Lodge Grass, MT.

She was a faithful member of the Wyola Pentecostal Church for many years.  She enjoyed reading her Bible, and loved going to church, sitting in her front yard drinking coffee, listening to gospel music, reading her novels, spending the day in Family Dollar, taking drives, and especially spending time with her grandchildren.
