Kristi Lynn Gutke was born to Orion Samuel and Naomi Ruth Cooley Wilcock on January 8, 1962 in Pocatello, Bannock, Idaho. Kristi was the youngest child of the family. Her siblings are Ricky Lee Wilcock, Tamara Ruth Wilcock, and Peggy Sue Wilcock.
She was raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. Her famiy most of the time always lived close to her Grandma Marybah Harriet Harmon Wilcock. I believe because her father was so very close to her grandma.
Kristi went to West High School in Salt LKe City Utah. She always worked as a waitress. She also worked in Grandma Wilcocks hamburger shop. She had 3 children, Joseph Dean Gutke, Jeremiah Scott Gutke and her daughter Felici Ruth Gutke. She married and later divorced her husband Scott Gutke.
Later in life, her and her parents moved to San Diego, California and while there she went to college to become a paralegal. When her family moved back to Utah after awhile she moved in with her daughter Felicia. She remained with Felicia the rest of her life. Kristi has 5 grandchildren only 4 living, Hazel Dean Gutke, Samuel Gutke, Shaelyn Gutke, Shylah Gutke and Sophia Gutke. She loved her grandchildren with all her heart and soul. She took care of her 3 youngest grandchildren while their mother worked.
Kristi had many health problems and towards the end of her life her liver basically poisened her mind. I cant think what its called. She was hospitalized and then her body started shutting down and Kristi returned home to her Heavenly Father on July 22, 2023.
Kristi is proceded in death by her Parents, her brother Ricky Lee Wilcock, her sister Tamara Ruth Wilcock, a grandson, Samuel Gutke and her paternal and maternal grandparents, Edward and Marybah Harriet Harmon Wilcock and Ernest and Catherine Lenore Coyle Cooley.
