Victoria Lee Sayle passed away at home November 1 as peacefully as she lived. Her beautiful smile and kind spirit left this earth for the heavens above much too early.

Vicki loved the beach, their second home on St. George Island and growing flowers. A talented artist and interior decorator, she always left beauty in her wake.

She was born March 8, 1949 to Charles R. Pickering and Irene Dillon Pickering, who preceded her in death. She graduated from St. Cecilia and attended the University of Tennessee.

The Funeral Mass will be held at 10 am, Weds., Nov. 7, at Christ the King Catholic Church on 3001 Belmont Blvd., followed by a celebration gathering at the Sayle’s home. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in her memory to Alzheimer’s Disease Research

A bright light has left us . Heaven has gained an angel. Vicky's sister, Laura was my classmate and friend from grade school through high school. Vicky was behind us. She was always so much fun. Always putting a smile on everyone's face around her. A ray of sunshine where ever she was. During the last couple of years Laura brought her to The Crow's Nest to visit, have a beer or two and a bite to eat. These times will remain in my heart forever more. I wouldn't take anything for them. Thank you Laura for making these visits happen. Thank you Vicky for your sweet soul and radiant smile. When I look up to the heavens at night your star will shine the brightest.
