GOVERNOR JUDY AND HARRY MARTZ JOINED BY PHYLLIS AND U.S. SENATOR CONRAD BURNS.

Our mission is to provide you with the opportunity to

SHARE YOUR LIFE STORY

longtime friend Shirly Herrin, who in 2017 inducted Judy into the Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame, are all at the center of the fundraising effort to make the Martz statue a reality. While Gov. Steve Bullock signed Senate Bill 275 into law last year, allowing for the statue, the funds needed for its creation need to be raised privately. If a statue is not in place by October of 2024, the authorization expires.

for your family and friends to cherish forever!

That’s why the group, led by Dave Galt, a former transportation director and friend of Judy, is on a mission to get all $160,000plus raised to start the process of seeking an artist, creating a design and installing the statue on the Capitol grounds. So far, they’ve raised roughly $70,000 through a grassroots campaign of letter writing, social media outreach and personal requests, along with a website catered to the cause.

• Re-live the memories in your life with video.

Judy Martz died in Butte in October of 2017 after a nearly threeyear battle with pancreatic cancer. Those who knew her well say if she knew about this effort, she’d more than likely smile and shake her head.
