Gillette

Linda Carol Werbelow, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and educator passed away peacefully on May 25, 2023 at The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center. She was surrounded by her family and loved ones who will cherish her memory forever. Linda was born on May 20, 1950 in Cordell, Oklahoma to Albert and Helen McGrath, sister to Jim and Jerry McGrath, and Maryann Dremel.

Linda dedicated most of her life to teaching. She started her career as a teacher at Ralph Witters Elementary in Thermopololis, WY from 1972-1975 before continuing her calling at various elementary schools such as East Side, Meadowlark, and Wagonwheel Schools in the Campbell County School District. Her love for teaching did not stop there; she became the School District Elementary Math Facilitator from 2000 to 2010 before retiring that same year.

Aside from teaching young minds, Linda also had a lifelong passion for crafting. She found peace in quilting, beading and jewelry making as well as origami. Many knew Linda as an outstanding artist who always brought joy to those around her with her beautiful handmade creations. She belonged to several groups devoted to quilting, beading, and jewelry-making in town which allowed her to share her love for these arts with others.

Linda was a remarkable woman who left behind countless people whose lives she touched just by being herself. A loving wife to John Werbelow; devoted mother to Liana [Doug] Scribner, Selina [Pete] Rodriguez, and Joshua Werbelow; and a doting grandmother to Travis, Samuel, Lucas, Max, and Charlie. Linda also leaves behind a loving sister, Maryann Dremel.

A Memorial Service to celebrate Linda's life will be held at Trinity Lutheran Church located at 1001 E 9th St., Gillette, Wyoming on June 2, 2023. The ceremony will begin at 2:00 PM.

Linda Carol Werbelow will be deeply missed by those who knew her.

May she rest peacefully knowing that those whose lives she touched on earth shall carry on with the same virtues that made Linda an exceptional human being.
