Victoria (Vicki) Lynn Peterschick

It is with great sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved sister, aunt and friend, Victoria (Vicki) Lynn Peterschick, age 72, on Oct. 3, 2021, at Logan Health in Shelby, Mont. A Celebration of Life will be held at later date.

Vicki was born Feb. 12, 1949, in Helena, Mont., to Edward and Josephine Peterschick. Vicki grew up on the family farm and attended school in Oilmont, Mont., and then Sunburst, Mont., where she graduated from North Toole County High School. 

After continuing her education and graduating from secretarial college in Great Falls, Vicki went to work at First State Bank in Shelby, where she worked her way up to head bookkeeper. She also provided accounting services for Ron Lambrecht and Ben Taylor Inc. Vicki then embarked on a new career for Dr. Robert Stanchfield and Marias Healthcare where she worked until her retirement in 2019. 

Vicki loved music and singing and anyone who ever rode in a car with her was lucky enough to have heard her beautiful singing voice. 

She was also the go-to lady for decorated cakes in Toole County for decades. There wasn’t a cake design she wouldn’t tackle. After she retired from cake decorating, she continued to bake and cook wonderful treats for others. The clinic where she worked and KW Insurance employees were a few of the lucky recipients of her treats. KW always looked forward to her “Tuesday Treats.” 

Vicki loved working on craft projects, painting and teaching others her artistic gifts. She also loved her kitty cats, they were like her children. Vicki loved her family and loved spoiling all of us, but especially her nieces and nephews, and in recent years, her great-nieces and great-nephews. They all knew that no matter whose birthday it was, there would be a special little gift for all of them from Aunt Vicki. 

She is survived by her five sisters and three brothers-in-law, Candy Peterschick, Debra Peterschick, Elaine (Bill) Running, Lea Ann (Brad) Hacke and Mary (Rick) Christy; and her much-loved nephew and nieces (and great-nephews and great-nieces), Loren (Autumn) Running, Troy (Jenna) Running, Melissa (Tevin) Chilton, Bree and Barynt Chilton, Darcy (Fred) Fairhurst, Michael and Cheyenne Miller, Mandy (Josh) Hacke and Tara (Jesse) Hacke-Garcia. 

Vicki was preceded by her parents, Edward and Josephine Peterschick.

She will be lovingly remembered by all who knew her. Memorial donation suggestions are St. Jude or an animal shelter of your choice.
