Billings women find support as they retire: 'You can only clean house so much'
Chris Easton taught school in Billings for 27 years, and spent the next eight working full-time as education outreach coordinator for the Montana National Guard. When she retired in 2013, Easton found herself at loose ends. So much of what had occupied her time for so long was now behind her.
