OBITUARY

Brigitte "Kitty" Vick

February 15, 1944November 30, 2019

I am pieces of all the places I have been, the friends I have made, and the people I have loved. I’ve been stitched together by Bingo games and nickel slots, laughter and tears, naps, Jeopardy, late night conversations, music and dancing, the mercy of Jesus, and the smell of coffee. Kitty was born in Liboch, Czeck Republic, during WWII. Raised Catholic, she completed first communion and confirmation. In 1964, she immigrated to the United States, and in 1968 became a naturalized citizen. In 1971, Kitty met and married Carl L. Vick, a United States Army soldier. Until he retired in the early 80’s, his military career took them back and forth between parts of Germany and parts of the United States. Fighting through and overcoming a variety of health issues through-out her life, Kitty learned to persevere. Mostly smiling and looking out for those around her, she will be fondly remembered and missed. She was one tough cookie.

Survived by: Son: Michael Weikert, wife: Barbara Weikert, granddaughter: Vera Weikert. Michael was adopted and lovingly raised by Franz and Rosa Weikert, Kitty’s parents. Daughter: Mary Vick Dowty, husband: Chris Dowty, grandson: Jason Dowty. Son: Carl L. Vick Jr., grand-dogs: Thelma & Louise. Siblings: Adolph Weikert, Ingrid Weikert Redlich and Friedrich Weikert. Many others to include: brother and sister-in-laws, cousins, nieces, nephews, friends, loved ones, and care givers, angels who became like family.

Preceded in death by: Infant son, Terry; husband SFC. Carl L. Vick Sr.; parents: Franz Weikert and Rosa Schweda Weikert; sister: Anneliese Dwyer and brother: Peter Weikert and many friends waiting to welcome her home.

John 14:1-3 1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Before mom’s passing, we spoke of her heavenly mansion being full of puppies! In lieu of flowers, please donate to your local animal shelter.

"My aunt Kitty" The bingo Queen. I first saw Kitty in Fort Huachuca Arizona where my brother Carl was stationed. I remember seeing Kitty across the way with Carl thinking well he has finally found a good-looking gal. That thought has carried on until this day Kitty was a good-looking gal indeed in heart and spirit she will be fondly remembered and missed. Farewell Kitty a heavenly Host of angels will escort you into heaven where we will join you someday. Big hugs lots of love Uncle David Vick.

Aunt Kitty was a strong & beautiful spirit who brought smiles to all, especially the kids in the neighborhood with her candy jar, from me & my little brother to all of my children. My mom being her best friend for the majority of my younger teenage years through adulthood, I have decades of memories I will cherish of my dear Aunt Kitty.

My Aunt Kitty loved her little parakeet birds, small dogs and children. She also loved her Twinkies and Macaroni & Cheese. She was the Bingo Queen of any town she lived in. That was my Aunt Kitty to me. She was a beautiful soul that always loved and like to laugh. She will always have her stamp of memories on my heart.
Love,
Charleen Vick- Manitta & Family in Australia.

There will be a small, private memorial for mom at Solaris, the nursing home she’s lived at for ten years. Within a few weeks, she’ll be buried at Bushnell Veteran’s cemetery with dad. We appreciate your thoughts, prayers and support at this difficult time.
