Christine Ann Sigg, 66, of Crook CO, passed Thursday, July 15, 2021 at Swedish Medical Center in Denver, CO.
Christine was born on September 27, 1954 in Scottsbluff, NE to Harvey and Mary Heilbrun. She attended grade school Scottsbluff until the family moved to Potter, NE in 1965 where Chris attended school, graduating in 1972. During high school Chris worked at the Buffalo Bend Restaurant and A & W Drive-In in Sidney.
Following graduation she moved to Sidney, NE for a brief time before deciding to try her hand at the big city. In 1973 she moved to Denver, CO where she met and fell in love with her future husband, Mike Sigg. The two met at a bar called Lucky’s in Cherry Creek, where she went with friends. They were married on November 23rd, 1974. He was the light of her life for 46 years.
Chris attended massage therapy school and became a licensed therapist. She has magic hands and a desire to help people. She was always willing to help anyone who needed a “tune up” or one of her herbal remedies to feel better. Even after she retired, she still gave massages at her home to close friends and family – she couldn’t say no to helping anyone feel better.
Chris and Mike loved to explore new places. One of their vacations included a trip to Devil’s Gorge in Montana and Devil’s Tower in WY. When passing through the town of Moorcraft, WY the two spotted a “For Sale” sign on a local business and knew it was meant for them. They purchased the business and built their new home where they lived for 15 years. Chris ran the store where she also took appointments for her massage business.
In 2015 the couple decided to retire. They sold the store and moved to Crook, CO to be closer to family.
One of Chris and Mike’s favorite pastimes was fishing. If the weather allowed and the fish were biting you could find them out on the Jumbo Reservoir, near their home, catching their limit.
Chris is survived by her loving husband Mike of Crook, CO; brothers. Rod (Luella) of Franklin, NE, Doug (Angie) of Moscow, ID; Sisters: Cindy (Ben) of Sidney, Diane of Sidney, and Cathy (Jim) of Sidney. Brothers-in-law: Steve of Broomfield, CO, Jeff (Joyce) of Kechi, KS, Darren (Kristy) of Aurora, CO, Brian (Jamie) of Parker, CO; sisters-in-law: Shelley (Kyle) Hubbard of Broomfield, CO, and Lisa (Keith) Lange of Henderson, CO; and numerous nieces and nephews.
