Dec. 8, 1954 - March 18, 2020
Vickie Mae Bellon, age 65, of Anaconda, MT, passed away Wednesday, March 18, 2020, unexpectedly but surrounded by family.
Vickie was born on December 8, 1954, to Charles and Virginia Wright. She was the youngest in the family of four children. She was the baby sister to three older brothers.
She attended Anaconda Senior High where she met Luther – he quickly stole her heart. They were inseparable for over 50 years and had recently celebrated their 48th wedding anniversary.
Together they welcomed their daughter, Carla. Vickie took pride in making school treats and hand making all of Carla’s Halloween costumes.
Prior to her retirement, she is most notably remembered for waitressing at the Embassy and the Copper Bowl. She loved her customers as much as they loved her. Many customers could be found staying for hours after a meal to enjoy coffee and conversation with Vickie.
Vickie’s passion was always for her family and her home. When you stopped over for a visit you were always greeted with a smile, a cup of coffee and her opinion. You left knowing you always had a friend in Vickie and valued her honesty.
Vickie was preceded in death by her parents, Charles and Virginia Wright. The love of her life, Luther, passed away earlier this month. Although their bond was separated for a very short time, they have now been reunited.
Vicki is survived by her daughter, Carla (George) Strutzel; grandson, Aric Strutzel; brothers, Charles (Bob) Wright, Jeff (Joanne) Wright, David (Jeanne) Wright; numerous family and countless friends.
At Vickie’s request, no services will be held. Please visit www.buttefuneralhome.com to offer the family a condolence or to share a memory of Vickie.
