Laura A Macik
July 4, 1935 - May 21, 2023

Place of Birth: Alexander, North Dakota
Residence: Billings, Montana
Age: 87

It is with great sadness that the family of Laura McIntyre Macik announces her passing on Sunday, May 21st, 2023. She went home to be with her husband Ray surrounded by her loving family six weeks and two days shy of turning 88.

Laura was born July 4th, 1935, to Fred and Alice (Hayward) McIntyre in Alexander, ND at Dr Roger’s house. She grew up in western North Dakota.

She met the love of her life, Ray Macik and they married September 26th, 1952. They farmed and ranched in the Squaw Gap community where they raised wheat, oats, barley, cattle and 3 children: Nyla, Steve and LaRae. Laura not only made a home for her family; she gave them an upbringing they will always cherish.
In the spring of 1980, they moved to Billings, MT where she enjoyed gardening, especially her beautiful roses. Yellow roses were her favorite. She was an avid crafter and enjoyed going to craft shows to sell homemade wares under the name Laura’s Creations. Eventually she partnered with a friend to open Main Street Crafters in Billings Heights. She earned enough to take Ray to Hawaii in February 2002 for their 50th Wedding Anniversary. She was so proud of that! They also traveled extensively with family and friends.

In her later years she became an avid reader, from magazines to books that occupied most of her time. Laura enjoyed westerns and anything about John Wayne. Her go-to bedtime snack was ice cream, strawberry being her top choice. She loved all the kids in the family, but the running joke was “her boys” were definitely her favorite.

She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and she will be greatly missed by everyone.

Laura is survived by her sister-in-law, Verna (Rodney) Wolf of Killdeer, ND; her three children, Nyla Macik of Billings, MT, Steve Macik and Diane Emly of Sidney, MT, and LaRae (Duane) Neprud of Billings, MT; Seven grandchildren Dyron, Mandy, Carol, Truman, Stephanie, Steven and Kacey; nine great grandchildren Chloe, Diego, Weston, Mia, Dyra, Leana, Danielle, Wyatt, and Walker; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

I have such fond memories of the Macik family! Riding horses, milking cows, deer hunting, 2-way radios, etc, etc as kids & all the way through my adult life I've stayed somewhat connected to these dear friends of my parents, Harry & Mavis. Laura was in the hospital when I got married so we went to see her in our wedding clothes! WE visited Laura in Billings for delightful visits before covid. One time we took her homemade hot chocolate mix at Christmas. Ray's funeral was a an awesome celebration of his life & we are looking forward to saying good bye to Laura and seeing the family. With our heartfelt sympathy, C'Dale (Jenner McBride) Jore & Phil
