Vicky was born Sept. 27, 1955, to George and Mary Gress. She was raised and educated in New Salem. She graduated from New Salem High in 1975. On June 14, 1975, she married her high school sweetheart, Conrad Pfleger. God blessed them with four children and seven grandchildren. She stayed at home to raise her children and then worked as a print operator for 25 years at The Finder, United Printing and Montana Dakota Utilities.
Vicky especially enjoyed spending time with all her family including her sisters, brothers, nieces and nephews. She loved country music, singing, dancing, cooking, playing cards, gardening, weekend getaways, riding motorcycle, watching her son play hockey and watching her grandkids play hockey, compete in rodeos, sing and perform. Vicky was very caring and opened her home and her heart to many special family members and friends who lived with her and Conrad through the years. She had a beautiful smile, a playful sense of humor and a joyful spirit. She will be deeply missed by all of her family and friends.
Vicky is preceded in death by her son, Shawn; her parents, George and Mary Gress; her sisters, Tilly Tibke, Jeanette Nagel, Linda Tibke, Donna Hagel and her brother, Wayne Gress.
She is survived by her husband, Conrad; three daughters and sons-in-law, Beverly (Monte) Unrath, Jamie (Cody) Fleck, and Chryseis (Chris) Tokach; seven grandchildren, Ethan Anthony, Allison Irene, Dalton Ray, Mikayla Lynn, Brady Kelly, Taylor Victoria, and Emma Mae; three sisters, Eleanore Gappert, Rita Reynolds, Helen Schafer; and two brothers Geno Gress and Bill Gress.
Conrad and family want to thank Dakota Home Care and CHI St. Alexius Hospice Care for their dedicated care that allowed Vicky to stay comfortable in her home.
Vicky and family take comfort in God’s promise, “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23.
