ROUNDUP — Christie Winkler Robertson passed away unexpectedly on May 29, 2011.
She was born on Aug. 15, 1953, to Leonard and Joan Winkler, and is preceded in death by her loving mother.
A beloved daughter, wife, mother and grandmother, and a wonderful sister and friend, Christie was generous and loving. Her absence will leave a void in the lives of those who loved her.
Christie spent her life working with children, and enjoyed her roles as substitute teacher and teacher's aide, but nothing compared to her role as Nana to grandson Briyer. She would always share the stories of how he reminded her to appreciate the simple things in life every day.
Christie is survived by her husband, Jerry, of 36 years; daughter Amanda and grandson Briyer of Roundup; and daughter Jill of Tucson, Ariz. Also her father Leonard Winkler; sisters Mary (Charlie) Thompson and Elizabeth (Tom) Mulflur; brothers Matt (Jacque), Fred and Kenny (Dorothea); many nieces, nephews, brothers- and sisters-in-law; and a wonderful mother-in-law and friend, Grandma Ardy Robertson.
A memorial service celebrating her life will be held Thursday, June 2, at 1 p.m., at the Zion Lutheran Church.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests a donation to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America or a charity of your choice, and that you please consider becoming an organ donor.
