I grew up with her and her brothers and sister. She was a special person. Her whole family was more like part of my family. Rest in peace you will always be in my heart.

I enjoyed meeting Vicki at HOTPACS when my husband and I joined in 2007, right after we moved to Waco. Her independence was certainly set the standard for the rest of us. She was always ready with a smile and an encouraging word for all who met her. And she really did love playing 42 on game day. Such a talented and beautiful lady.

Aunt Dorothy, Kim, Delaney and all my cousins, I’m so sorry . Prayers for comfort and peace.
She was a wonderful Lady , as you already know.
Vicki was an Angel here on earth, so loving and kind. She was a true inspiration.
She loved to laugh and have fun. I’ll treasure all the family get togethers, either the reunions where we played volleyball, yard darts, horseshoes or just talked. Those were the fun times.
I’ll miss our visits, listening to her play her guitar, the talks and laughs those will be treasured forever.
I’m so happy that she’s healed and is singing in Heaven, never to feel pain again .
💗Fly High - You’ve earned your wings 💗

I want to extend my deepest condolences to the family of Vicki. I first met Vicki three years ago when my dad came to be a resident where she was at. She was always so happy and pleasant even in times when she was feeling poorly. My dad sat at the table for meals with Vicki and she was always so helpful and kind. I didn't realize she was such a great musician till I heard her play her flute! She was a lovely lady inside and out. May the memories of your loved one sustain you during this time of grief. May God grant her eternal rest and perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul through the mercy of God rest in peace.

I am heart broken to hear my friend has passed. Because of the virus we have not been able to go see her but I thought of her many times and prayed she was doing OK. I know in my heart that she is finally at peace. We will miss her laughter, her smile, and her wit. GOD be with Vicki's family members at this terrible time of sorrow. Dorothy you are in our Prayers and I know you have not just lost your daughter but your best friend. Kimberly and Delaney you have a lost a piece of your hearts but know that she is still with you and watching over you just as she did in life. May GOD be with you all and know that we all care and are praying for you all.

To Kim, Delany and Dorothy my thoughts and prayers are with you. It was such a joy to be able to care for Vicki over the last 6 years. Vicki never met a stranger and was a friend to all. To Kim, Delany and Dorothy my thoughts and prayers are with you. Vicki and I had many conversations over the years. Will think about her every time I eat a taquito from Whataburger or when I eat Bluebell ice cream. The day she left was a hard day, but getting her angel wings on Independence day was fitting for her. RIP Vicki!! We will truly miss you.

VickyLynn or Victoria as I would call her ;) I absolutely adored Vicky. She was the most compassionate and kind person I’ve had the pleasure of taking care of. She set such an amazing example for others. Despite her health failing her she never lost her faith! She was a tough lady and she fought the good fight. She was a good friend to those around her and always had a listening ear. I will forever cherish our moments we had together. I know she is up there singing and playing the flute for her fellow WVM friends such as Oscar and Bill and MANY, many others. I am sad for selfish reasons, because I will miss her here but I am also overjoyed for her because I know she is dancing and living her BEST life with Jesus. All of the staff here at Westview Manor love you so much Vicky. You will forever hold a special place in our hearts and in this facility!

Vicki was a very special woman. She shared a constant smile and had a fabulous laugh that was contagious to others. She was married to our Dad for 14 years and was a heart warming step mother to all of us children. Our family was filled with treasured times, laughter, and memories until an unfortunate tragedy happened in our family. Kim was a sweetheart and loved her Momma so much, and she shared her willingly with all of us. Vicki was a wonderful Granny Vicki to our children during their young years. I’m forever grateful for those memories. May God bless all of Vicki’s sweet family. Vicki is at rest now and was undoubtedly welcomed by Heaven’s angels for the beautiful impact of love she gave to so many while she was on this earth. Love Always, Linda, Doug, Josh, Jason & Jessica
