Obituary: Rebecca Ann (Burger) Wilhelm
On Oct. 29, 2015, Rebecca Ann (Burger) Wilhelm lost her two year battle with cancer.
She was born in Kremmling at Kremmling Memorial Hospital on May 11, 1969.
Becky attended West Grand through graduation. She was active in Volley Ball, Cheer Leading, Art, and all other activities offered. She was an active member of 4-H and a member of the Rabbit club, Sewing, Cooking and a council member. Becky won many awards and attended state fair for cooking and sewing. After high school she attended Bel-Rea Veterinary Institute for Veterinary Science. She graduated as a licensed Veterinary Technician. Becky loved what she did and it afforded her many opportunities such as working with Dr. Kevin Fitzgerald. She also got to work with many clients and their pets including caring for Janet Elway’s Horses. She was promoted to Hospital Administrator, which after several years she gave up to go back to working directly with animals.
While living in Denver she attended many sporting events. She loved the Broncos and Avalanche and was really excited to take her Grandfather to his first and only Broncos game. There was nothing more important to her than family. After meeting Roger, her husband, they spent most of their time outdoors. When she was not working, you could usually find her fishing. They had fished most of the lakes, rivers and reservoirs in the state of Colorado, and traveled to many other places, including the Sea of Cortez where they fished for tuna. Becky and Roger also spent a great deal of time hunting. They hunted everything from ducks to elk. They loved every aspect of the hunt, from beginning to end, especially cooking together. They loved to take their ATVs and their hunting dogs, Doc and Cami, to explore Colorado. When asked how she liked dressing out an elk, she always said, “It’s not a problem, I just call Roger to take care of it”.
Becky is preceded in death by Grandparents Grant Sr. and Margaret, survived by her Husband Roger and his son Garrett, Mother Karen of Oregon, Father Grant Jr. of Kremmling, Brother Grant III (Susan) and their two children Shiloh and Reagan of Dolores. There will be a private memorial service on Saturday, Nov. 7, in Denver, attended by close friends and immediate family only.
