Victoria 'Vicky' Ann Trebesch passed away Sept. 25 at her daughter's home from complications of cancer.

Her life of 76 years began in Wisconsin where she was the first-born to Joseph and Margery. She was soon joined in the family by her brother, Don. Her family lived in Wisconsin in her earlier years where her father worked, attended the University of Wisconsin and later taught high school Spanish, which also included a teaching job in Panama for a time.
Upon returning from Panama, Vicky and family moved back to Wisconsin. Her sister, Sandy, was welcomed to their family during that time.
After her parents' divorce, her mom remarried Wes', a Master Sgt. in the military, and the family moved to Spain where Wes was a training instructor. While in Spain, the family welcomed Vicky's youngest brother, Mark.
After Spain, Vicky and family moved to Oregon where Wes was stationed. She attended and graduated from high school in Oregon. Upon graduating she set out in the world on her own and landed her first job in California where she worked as an operator and eventually a supervisor for a telephone company.
She moved from California to Colorado and married her first husband there and they later moved back to northern Montana. Vicky's first child was born there, a daughter, Jean. She lost little Jean at 8-weeks to SIDS.
After Montana, they moved back to Colorado and Vicky worked again for the telephone company. After she divorced, Vicky moved to Montana where she started working at Safeway. It was at this time she met her husband of the last 47 years, Carl.
Vicky and Carl were married and shortly afterward started farming. They were blessed with twin sons, Matthew and Tyson. Three years later the family welcomed their new sister, Tessa. Vicky lost her grown son Tyson in a tragic farm accident. Vicky and Carl remained in their farm home until they moved to eastern Montana for work opportunities there. They both found good jobs there and bought their current home. Vicky's touch made this their new home where they enjoyed a farm style life in the city with their gardening and farm home habits from years before.
Vicky's kind personality, sense of humor, and determination made this new house the home that it is today. She became known for her kind rapport with not only people, but with animals of any genre. Flowers were her specialty, not to mention her photography and cooking abilities. She is present always in our minds and will be dearly missed by her family and all those who crossed paths with her.
