After the death of Mrs. Anna Marie Johnson of Billings, Montana late in 1984, her family decided to build a chapel in her memory. Two stringent guidelines were given: the final product should be virtually maintenance free and the project must be completed in 75 calendar days. The contractor chose to build the exterior shell with cast-in-place white concrete buttresses and site-cast white concrete gables. The gables were stack cast on-site and lifted into place. Concrete work was completed when a white concrete cross was set in place atop the steeple and concrete sidewalks were built to encircle the chapel.
