Vickie was a unique individual who lived her life on her own terms. She loved her family, friends, and music. She loved animals as testified by her 3 dogs and 5 cats, pet fish and turtles in the pond in the back yard, and numerous bird feeders and bird baths placed around the property. She always wanted a retired cow, but we could not find room for one in the house. She also loved and cared for numerous plants and flowers.
She will be missed by her extended family and friends. Life is short so live it well!!
Private memorial services will be held at a date to be determined.
