OBITUARY

Vickie Lynn Leet

January 3, 1949June 15, 2020

Vickie Leet, beloved daughter, wife, mother, and nana passed away unexpectedly on June 15, 2020 in Fresno at the age of 71. She was born in San Francisco on January 3, 1949 to Victor and Lynn Clemo. She moved to Fresno as a teenager and graduated from McLane High School in 1967. Vickie worked as a teller, first at Bank of America, and later as one of the founding tellers at Bank of Fresno. Vickie married Don Leet, professor of Economics at Fresno State, on January 25, 1975. Together they reared their three children: Sara, Megan, and Andrew. As her children grew, Vickie found time to work in the local entertainment industry as a performer and ambassador at Roger Rocka's Dinner Theater. She also sang in the local chapter of Sweet Adelines, and worked as the head of the music library for the Fresno Unified School District. Vickie was active in many community organizations, including Fig Garden Woman's Club where she served on the Board and was elected President. After her retirement, she enjoyed cruising and traveling with her husband to exotic places like Hawaii, the Panama Canal, and Russia. But her favorite activity, by far, was spending time with her family.

Vickie was preceded in death by her mother, Lynn Clemo. She is survived by her husband, Don; her father, Victor Clemo and his wife, Kathy; her daughter Sara Sitton with her partner, Derrick Cox; her younger daughter, Megan Logan with her husband, Vincent; and her son Andrew Leet with his wife, Sarah; as well as step-sister Shirley MacKenzie and her husband, Phil. Vickie's ten grandchildren, her "Little Cherubs," are part of her legacy. In birth order they are: Conner Sitton, David Sitton, Nicholas Logan, Nathan Logan, Jack Sitton, Benjamin Leet, William Leet, Paisley Logan, Evelyn Leet, and Rose Leet.

Due to COVID-19 guidelines, a small graveside service for family will be held on June 30 at Belmont Memorial Park. A Celebration of Life for all to attend will be announced and held at a later date. As she often said to us: "We love you to the moon and back..."

Vickie, Was a dear friend her heart and sense of humor made her a joy to be with. She was very generous and down to earth. We worked together in the costume shop at Good Company Players for years and remained good friends when she retired. She and Don met up with My Husband Michael and I when we were on our honeymoon in Paris I treasure those memories along with so many others. She leaves behind a great legacy of a beautiful family, I am deeply sorry for your loss, I loved her very much and I share your pain. RIP sweet friend.

Gary and I are so sad to hear this. We enjoyed meeting the entire family on our trip to Costa Rica and then years later, reconnecting in Washington, DC. She was a beautiful person inside and out, and will be missed by everyone.

Don,

Our prayers are with you and your family. I'm sure you have many great memories of your life with Vickie. I remember our days at Central Catholic in Pittsburgh so many years ago.

It is sad and startling to see that this special lady has left us.

My memories of Vickie are a result of one of many connections that were made at Our Lady of Victory School. She and I, along with many parents, volunteered at the school in several capacities. As a result, we had arranged to watch one another’s children on alternating weeks. This allowed us to spend time at the school with our older school age children.

She was a lovely person and I am thankful to have shared a friendship with her. I was in awe of her talents, her singing and sewing skills.

To her family, please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers as you move through this difficult time.

May she rest in heavenly peace.

Most sincerely,

Laura

We at Good Company Players will miss Vickie’s ready laugh and constant smile. We will miss the joy she found in music, dance, and theatre. We will miss her support and enthusiasm and bright presence. We will miss her friendship terribly. We are grateful to have known her and worked with her and laughed with her. We are so grateful that she shared her family with us. Blessings on You all.

Vickie Leet was a MOM to many of us who attended Bullard Talent. She volunteered countless hours as a chaperon, field trip driver, and snack mom. We students always wanted to be in her cool Van when we had various performances around town and even out of town!
When we became teenagers we saw her at Rogar Rockas often either as a mom, ambassador, or performer. She never made us kids feel unwelcome in her home or in her presence. She had so much energy and loved life to the fullest. She could relate to anybody and always had a smile on her face.
Megan, I am so glad to have had the chance to know your fun, joyful, talented, loving mom. I have nothing but wonderful memories of her. She leaves behind the best family, who amplify her vivacious spirit. Please give my love to the whole family.
Love,
Carah Loforti

Although I only had the pleasure of meeting this woman a handful of times over the years, I always knew she loved her family with all her heart and that her smile lit up the room. I'm so sorry for your loss, I cannot imagine how difficult this is. Hold on to all the beautiful memories.
