One of the fondest memories we have of Vicki was Dec 15, 2018, the Christmas Dinner at Golden Coral. With failing health, the Annual Family Christmas Dinner, always hosted by John and Vicki, just got to be too much for her to do. When asked if we could get together at a restaurant just to have a few hours of fun and relaxation, she readily agreed. Though we only had one year of what was to become a tradition, the memories we made will last forever and we will cherish in our heart. Betty

At a young age, I became a big brother. As siblings do, we fought, we made up, loved each other for a short time, and fought again. Before long, it became a tradition that spanned the space of many years. But, nobody else better attack us. We became a team, especially after the birth of our little brother, Billy Joe. So, with sadness today, little sister Vicki, Little Billie Joe and I must say not goodbye, but so long. I know, just as we hate to see the team separate, so did you. But, we know that God called you to be an Angel in His Heavenly Choir. And someday soon we will join you, not to fight, love , fight, but to Rejoice, Rejoice, Rejoice. Whether it be a day, month, year, or beyond, it will be soon, compared to Eternity we will be together. Reunite with Dad, and someday we will all be a family together in Heaven. Don’t worry about Mom, just as you were part of our team, we will teach her what you taught us. She will be a Rose between two thorns, and we will guard her against evil. Love u, my sister. Big brother, Barry

John and Schuyler, I send my prayers to the Father for the loss of your wife and mother, Vicki. I have so many wonderful memories of our time at Carlisle High School and my visits home when I was in the Navy. I will always remember Vicki’s sweet smile and laughter. She was my Best Friend and will live in my heart forever. I am here whenever you need a listening friend to comfort you.

Love Always and Forever,

At all the dinners at the church, Vicki would bring the best desserts. She took pride in her desserts and she would gladly share her recipes.

Her smile, the way she sometimes found things funny and laughed will be remembered and missed.
