Vickie Revonda (Shuck) Kirk
15 January, 1960 – 23 April, 2021
Vickie Revonda Kirk (Shuck)
Born Jan. 15th, 1960, daughter to Bobby Shuck and Eva McKinney (Akers). Survived by her husband Danny, 3 sons, Christopher, Shawn, Andy, 3 sisters Wanda, Becky, and Kimberly, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.
Vickie's early life was surrounded by memories of her brother (Tommy Shuck) and other family and friends. Racing, driving vehicles off cliffs, building her cabin in the woods, and as a small girl walking to church where she learned about her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Many memories and many stories (if you would like to know some, just ask her grandchildren). It was not long until Danny came into her life, that first time tossing a pizza on top of her car, the man she would marry, have children with, and build a life with over the next 43 years. Fast forward many years you will see Vickie raising her kids and spending time with her husband. She worked for a short time at the Post Office in Shady Spring WV while her kids where in school, something to do to pass time when she was not at home planting flowers, cleaning, cooking, and helping Danny to build the family business "Kirk Work". Vickie was always a petite lady usually always under 100lbs, she faced bone diseases such as fibromyalgia, degenerative disk disease and others. The cold winters in West Virginia caused her great pain and discomfort. Having family in North Carolina and warmer weather the family moved to Lenoir. Vickie worked as a seamstress for many years until her hands just could not handle sewing any more. She retired. After this Vickie found her greatest passion in this life (other than her Grandchildren of course) The Bus Ministry. Vickie's body ached and had severe pain, until that first Saturday when she went out to visit kids and ask them to get on a bus and come to Church. Her pain vanished, and she worked the bus route (always pain free on those Saturday Visitations!) for close to 15 years! On an average Sunday she would bring 40+ kids and on a high Sunday over 100! Seeing many lives changed Vickie loved the bus ministry. She taught a Sunday school class and helped in the Junior Church. Her true passion was helping kids.
From her son Shawn Kirk - Mama, I will forever miss you. You have always been my rock and you have boosted me up in every one of my low points. You were always a call away when I needed you the most. As I sit here, I just cannot fathom not being able to call you and talk about why I hurt so bad. We would sit and talk about the pain until it would shrink into a distant memory. As soon as we say our loving goodbye's, I instantly feel like I am three years old again, in your arms, and with a great big warm hug, all would instantly be better.... You will forever be missed. I will always love you mom.
From her son Andy Kirk - People have always told me that I "took after" my mom. My first memories all place me being with her. When she needed to run to the store, I went, when she needed gas, I was there, no school, I was at the post office with her, even when she had to go out of state to for a family emergency and dad could not go, I went. My dad always took care of us, the provider, always working but dad always made time for us come the weekends. On Saturdays I have many memories of being in the woods on an ATV my mom driving and me riding with her. My dad and brother on other ATVs leading the way. Or us being on the boat and in the water, always spending time together but I was always with my mom. That one time when we were on a float in the ocean and we both woke up several hundred feet off the coast, yes, I was with my mom then too. Many loving years passed, and I always stuck by her side. My closest friends always called my mom, mom that is just how she was, she was like their mom as well. Eventually I started my own family, and up until the time my kids started school, my wife, my kids, and I always ate dinner with my mom and dad. We did not have much at the beginning of our marriage and my mom made it a point to make sure we were all well taken care of, she never asked for anything in return. Every vacation that we would plan, we planned them with my mom we took her and Dad everywhere we went. My mom loved warm weather, she loved being at the beach and I did all I could to get her there as often as possible. I just wanted to spend time with Mom & Dad, and my kids could not stand to be apart from them. My mom was a saved Christian, leading as many kids to Christ as she possibly could. I know my mom went home to be with her Lord, she opened the doors to her mansion and took a shouting fit! I miss my mom, but I have great peace knowing I will see her again soon.
A memorial service will be held at 3:00 pm on Thursday, April 29, 2021 at the Shinning Light Baptist Church in Valdese.
Kirksey Funeral Home of Morganton has the honor of serving the family.

I always looked forward to being with Vicki and Danny when they came to the beach. We had many wonderful times together. Vicki always had a smile on her face even if she was in pain.
You immediately knew she loved God and her family.
She always talked about her bus ministry. Even her car was witness for God.
I will miss her deeply but I know I will see her in Heaven.
She will always be in my thoughts.
Prayers for Danny and the family.
