Christopher John Wolbert

Christopher John Wolbert: January 19, 1968 — January 29, 2023

We regretfully announce the passing of our loving father, grandfather, brother; uncle and much more.

Christopher Wolbert, age 55, of Gillette, WY passed away on January 29, 2023 of heart related issues.. He is survived by his loving children, Alicia DeVine, Carissa (Eric) Melo, Elena (Colin) Blade, Austin Wolbert and grandchildren, Steven, Jetta, Vincent and Leila.

Christopher spent most of his life in Gillette, WY.  He loved nothing more than spending his time with his children and grandchildren.  Christopher loved visiting Deadwood when possible and going to dinner, with his best friend Art.  When he wasn’t spending his time with his family, he was doing his ‘Godly” duty of preparing food for the soup kitchen.  He had so much love for his work family.

Christopher was loved by everyone, because of his humour and his demeanour. He was always encouraging and thoughtful to those around him.  Christopher was very outspoken, beyond knowledgeable and most importantly, stubborn.  He was a fighter, he fought for what he believed was right and there was no convincing him otherwise. Christopher would often say “God will call me home, when he’s ready for me to play euchre with Mom and Dad.”

We will miss him more than words can say. In lieu of flowers a memorial has been established and donations can be made to The Council of Community Services/Soup Kitchen and memorials and condolences can be sent in care of Gillette Memorial Chapel 210 W. 5th St.  Gillette, WY  82716 Condolences may also be expressed at www.GilletteMemorialChapel.com

A Celebration of Life will be at a later date.

Vickie Lee Roesler

Vickie Lee Roesler: March 5, 1951 — January 30, 2023

Vickie Lee Roesler, 71, of Gillette, Wyoming, was welcomed into Heaven by her Lord and Savior on January 30, 2023.

Vickie was born on March 5, 1951 to Gottfried and Ella (Zimmerman) Verworn in Terry, Montana.  She was the 9th out of 10 children. Vickie attended school in Terry as well. Vickie met Larry Roesler, and the two moved to Gillette, Wyoming in 1968. They married March 22, 1969 and from this union four beautiful children were born. Vickie and Larry decided to separate after nearly 25 years of marriage.

As a dedicated worker, she was a part of the store set-up when her local Walmart opened, beginning December 1990 and she worked for the company for more than 25 years.

Vickie thoroughly loved life. She enjoyed crafting ceramics which she won the highest award for, bowling, square dancing, yard work, and taking care of others. Above all else, she enjoyed the precious time she got to spend with her family.

Vickie was a real spunky lady, and she always made things fun. She was very accepting of others, and her family says that they have been honored to call her “theirs”. She was the best Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt and friend, and she will be sorely missed.

Vickie is survived by her children Teri (Larry) McDaniel; Tracy (Heidi) Roesler; Trina (Gary) Mills; and Dustin Roesler; grandchildren, Tasha Roesler, Amanda, Ashley, Austin, and Cameron McDaniel, and Grant, Ella, and Katie Mills; four great-grandchildren, one sibling Nelda Reinschmidt, and several nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her parents Gottfried and Ella Verworn, 8 siblings, 2 nephews and countless aunts and uncles.

Services for Vickie will be arranged at a later date. Memorials and condolences may be sent in care of Gillette Memorial Chapel 210 West 5th Street, Gillette, WY 82716. Condolences may also be expressed at www.gillettememorialchapel.com
