Kortni Kathryn South

Kortni Kathryn South of Jordan, MT passed away May 29, 2017 in a tragic vehicle accident. 

Kortni was born December 28, 2001 in Miles City, MT to Kent and Chevell (Ryan) South. Kortni, also known as Tootie or Bugs, attended school in Jordan. She would have been a sophomore this fall at GCDHS. 

One of her accomplishments was becoming quite an athlete. She joked about not knowing where she got this skill, as no one in her immediate family was very athletic! She enjoyed playing volleyball and was a very aggressive basketball player. 

Kortni enjoyed her school years making many friends and spending time with them and their families. Summers were spent at the pool and the family cabin at Hell Creek swimming, boating, skiing, tubing, and fishing. Kortni faced her world head on and her dream was to become a RN. She just recently started taking CNA classes. 

She was a beautiful kind person with an infectious smile and sense of humor. Everyone fell in love with her. Heaven now has a special angel.

Kortni is survived by her parents, Kent and Chevell South, sister Samantha South, brother Jake South, grandparents Kenneth and Kathy South and Tom and Shelley Ryan, great-grandmother Freda Stinebaugh, great-grandfather Ralph Clark, aunt Kristy (Nathan) Saylor and family, Uncle Kevin (Tonya) South and family, Uncle Kenneth Ryan and family as well as numerous other great aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Kortni was preceded in death by her great-grandparents; Joey and Margret South, Kay Clark, Roy Stinebaugh, and George and Joyce Ryan.

We will never forget the moment your heart stopped and ours kept beating!
