Mary Louise Vigil Toland 67, of Gillette passed away on Wednesday June 29, 2022, with her daughters and grandchildren by her side. Mary was born and raised in Gillette, Wyoming to Joe and Darlene (Stickney) Vigil on Friday August 13, 1954, making Friday the 13th one of her favorite days. She met and fell in love with Jeffrey Toland marrying him on November 21, 1980, and together they welcomed three daughters before divorcing in October 1991. Mary had such a contagious smile and kind heart making her many lifelong friends. She was a compassionate person with a strong soul and a fighter till the very end. She was the kind of woman that would do anything to make sure her girls were taken care of even working two jobs at times. She spent many years working at the Goings Hotel and Lobby Bar before working at a few other motels in town and eventually retiring to babysit her grandchildren full-time. Mary had a lot of hobbies some of which include crocheting Afghan Blankets and gifting them to family and friends, spending countless evenings downtown playing bingo with her mother and sister, painting ceramics, reading romance books.. especially the Christmas ones, and she really loved how new books smelled, watching some of her favorite tv shows and movies like The Golden Girls, Monk, Bewitched, SpongeBob, The Twilight Saga, and all the Hallmark Christmas movies. But some of her most favorite things to do were spending time with her family especially her daughters and grandchildren. Watching them grow and succeed in life made her happy. She always looked forward to her Sunday afternoon visits from her brother Dave and his wife Mary Lou, he always came bearing stories and lots of laughs up until his passing in December. Mary is survived by her daughters Jennifer, Jessica, Sarah, and Julie Toland, grandchildren Alexander, Jordi, Alizabeth, Theodore, Jamie, Selena, and Gloria Toland, and Xavier and Marcela Nieto, brother James (Elise) Vigil, sister Mary Lou Vigil, six nephews, three nieces, ten great nieces and nephews, and numerous cousins. She was preceded in death by her parents Joe and Darlene Vigil, brother David Vigil Sr., and sister Cynthia Loveday. The family would like to extend a special Thank You to Nurse Laurie at Campbell County Health for always going above and beyond for our Mama and to Nancy at St. Matthews Catholic Church for her endless prayers and compassion. In lieu of flowers contributions can be made in Mary’s name to Gillette Memorial Chapel 210 West 5th Street, Gillette, WY 82716. Condolences may also be expressed at www.gillettememorialchapel.com
