Rena (Minnie) Quick

April 3, 1936 — March 18, 2024

Newcastle, Wyoming

Rena (Minnie) was born in the rock house at the Borgialli ranch to Joe and Lorena (Weaver) Borgialli, about 15 miles south of Newcastle, in the Clareton area. She attended the Borgialli School, except for one year at the Lone Tree School, through the 7th grade. Then, she rode the school bus to Newcastle through her high school years. She graduated with the class of 1954.

Minnie’s favorite things to do as a child were riding horses and dancing. Every weekend the whole family would attend a dance somewhere in the county. She had a lot of fun with her family growing up. All ranch chores were done as a family and her parents helped start the Sage Brush Maids and Wranglers 4-H clubs, when she was 10 years old. She belonged to this club until graduating high school. Throughout high school, Minnie worked at Hested’s Department Store as well.

Minnie married Bobby Quick on March 24, 1954, as he was being shipped to Germany with the Army. While Bobby was overseas, she went to work at Mountain Bell Telephone and Telegraph Company as a telephone operator. When Bob returned from the Army, they lived and worked at the MW ranch. Bob started his own construction business, in which they worked for 15 years. Then Minnie went to work for the Wyoming Refining Company for 19 years, retiring in 1999.

Minnie was a 4-H leader for over 20 years. She taught leathercraft for 4-H and for community education. She was a chapter parent for FHA and a Brownie Scout leader. She taught Sunday school and was a secretary at the Methodist Church. Minnie was also a past member of Beta Sigma Phi and a past member of Phythion Sisters Lodge.

Minnie is preceded in death by her husband of 68 years, Bob Quick, parents Joe and Lorena Borgialli, brothers: Charles, George, Jim, Roy and Clarence Borgialli, and sister Joanne Day.
