Victoria Jean Ollerich, age 74 of Buffalo, MN passed away peacefully on September 27, 2019.

She was born on August 9, 1945 in Sioux Falls, SD to August and Gladys (Jenks) Ollerich. She spent her childhood growing up on the family farm and graduated from O’Gorman High School in 1963. She attended SDSU, where she met her future husband, Dennis Trisler and the two were joined in marriage in November of 1966. They were blessed with two children: Michael Keith and Michelle Lee. They made their home in Bloomington, MN.

In addition to being a devoted mother and grandmother, Vickie also had a career in the Real Estate and Mortgage business.

She was friendly, compassionate and a natural caretaker at heart. She cared deeply about other people’s well-being and expressed that every chance she could. Whether that was attending a concert, sporting event, celebrating a birthday/holiday, or to lend an ear/shoulder, or just to spend time together, Vickie was always there.

Vickie loved spending time tending to her flower gardens, hiking, traveling, sewing, and reading. Being in nature with her Creator and time spent with her family and friends filled her heart and soul.

Vickie is survived by her children, Michael Trisler and Michelle (Correy) Farniok; grandchildren, Mitchell Trisler, Joey, Andrew and Corrine Farniok; siblings, Bill (Kathie) Ollerich, Mary Ollerich, Jim (Edith) Ollerich, Mike Ollerich, Bob Ollerich; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. She will be dearly missed by all of her family and friends.

A Celebration of Life will be held Friday, October 4, 2019 at 3:00 PM with visitation beginning at 1:00 PM at The Peterson Chapel in Buffalo.
In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred.

    Michelle, Correy, & Family…
    I think you and Mike were standing at the front of the line when God passed out mothers. Vickie was a sensitive, caring and loving mom and grandma. We had numerous conversations about life, gardening, our youth, and grandchildren. She could not have been more proud of her family! If it had not been for Vickie, we wouldn’t have Michelle, Joey, Andrew, Corrine, and of course, Correy…the best neighbors ever!
    Many hugs to all of you! ❤️
    Skip & Mary

    When I think of your mom, I smile. She had the gift of hospitality; making me feel so individually cared about anytime I was in her presence. She was authentic, gentle, present in the moment and full of grace. She didn’t pass judgement and was so welcoming. God has gained a beautiful angel.
    Michelle, you fought fiercely for her during her illness—advocating with strength and displaying that same tenderness, grace and loyalty. You and your brother are her finest treasures and she left an amazing legacy! The loss of a matriarch of a family is so profound. You are on my mind and in my heart.
