She was a loving and devoted mother who enjoyed spending quality time with her family any chance she could get. She had such a big heart and touched so many people with her love and generosity.  When her children were growing up, their home was known as a welcome place where all the kids would love to come and hang out and was fondly referred to as the “Kool -Aid House”.  She greatly appreciated nature’s beauty and loved gardening with Dale as well.  Together they have transformed many outdoor spaces into stunning works of art.  Vickie will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
