Memorial Service Scheduled for Audrey Koltiska

A Life Celebration is scheduled for family and friends of Sheridan County Clerk Audrey Koltiska. The event will be held at the Historic Sheridan Inn from 3 to 6 pm Wednesday, March 31st.

Audrey Fay Koltiska was born April 30, 1948 in Sheridan to George and Lena Koltiska. She was raised on the family ranch on Cat Creek, east of Sheridan. She attended Holy Name School, Sheridan High School, Sheridan College, and Parks School of Business in Denver. She spent the last forty years serving the people of Sheridan County, the last twelve of which she was elected County Clerk.

She is survived by her son Tom Koltiska, sister Deb Adams and brothers Gary Koltiska and Robert Koltiska, along with numerous nephews, nieces and extended family.

Champion Ferries Funeral Home is handling the arrangements. In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent in Audrey's name to Ducks Unlimited:

My loving memories...

My first rememberence of Audrey was as a child in Kindergarten when I would go over to her house after school with TJ (latch-key kids that we were). Back in the good old days when you could do such a thing. I really looked up to TJ as a big brother then. I regret the sorrow he must be feeling in the wake of Audrey's passing. My heart goes out to you TJ.

My final memories of Audrey were as my next door neighbor on Linden Street. Her girls in the backyard running around. I hope somebody is going to look after them with as much care and love as Audrey had for them. Her hearding the "other pets" back to Rob's house. The unspoken mowing competition between her and my husband to keep the lawns looking nice. Don't tell him (sorry honey), but I think Audrey won!!

I no longer live in Sheridan and wish that I could be there today for her Celebration of Life to share these memories with the entire family - I miss all of you and my condolences to you all.
