The thing I remember most about Vickie is her smile. I remember being dropped off at the house and her opening the door smiling. I always felt welcome at the Guffey house!

I am so sorry that Vickie has left us so soon. I remember our girls were best buddies and we were always dropping off or picking them up from each other’s house. Vickie was always so sweet and welcoming. I always knew they were safe at your house. Vickie, you will be missed and loved by many. I know you are at peace. I pray that God,s peace and love consoles the family.❤️🙏🏻🌼 Glenda Ross

Tuesday afternoon
I'm just beginning to see
Now I'm on my way
It doesn't matter to me
Chasing the clouds away
Something calls to me
The trees are drawing me near
I've got to find out why
Those gentle voices I hear
Explain it all with a sigh
I'm looking at myself reflections of my mind
It's just the kind of day to leave myself behind
So gently swaying through the fairyland of love
If you'll just come with me you'll see the beauty of
Tuesday afternoon
Tuesday afternoon
Tuesday afternoon
Moody Blues

Vickie will be greatly missed.

This is a great loss. Vicki was like a sister to me. She always had an open ear and was a compassionate listener. She loved John and she was a good Mom who loved her children. There were times when I would get a call in the middle of the night with water running from the kid’s shenanigans. She was a great support to me when my Mom died and she was grieving the loss of her father. I will remember her kindness, her love of family, flowers, birds and the fur babies. Rest In Peace, friend.

the memory I have is when I was 15 and bookie was 13 we she and her mother came and visited us in Phoenix Arizona and we went with my dad and my sister and we and my mother waited in the car while we went tube surfing or you're in a big giant inner tube and you go down to Verde River and there was this halfway point where you can either go right or you could go left and if you went left you'd probably end up dead so but I had kind of forgotten that so I'm following my dad who went down the left side my sister was behind me and Vicky was in front of me all of a sudden I come on this little come upon this little island just a piece of dirt with some trees on it and there's Vicky standing there her hands are shaking and she's waving me down so I fell off of my inner tube and swam to her got caught on a real moldy old rock that had real slick stuff on it and I started to pray and about that time a young man walked up by this time I was sitting on the rock and Vicky was just she was terrified and I the guy walked out there over the rocks took my hand and and put me on my little island with Vicky so we got back into an inner tube and let me tell you a funny side note on this story Vicky thought that guy was the answer to my prayers might have been an angel cuz he came out of nowhere and he was not he was very calm he didn't you know he just got and then for some reason he got us an inner tube so we started to go back down the river on the calm side but Vicky was still so shaken she said no let's just get off here and I said yeah but we've got it made now so she convinced me to get off to see my dad and my sister were at the end of the river which was just right ahead of where me and Vicky decide to get off and so I don't know why we thought we had to carry that inner tube I guess we thought we had to give it back to get our money back it's all of a sudden we come upon these people and we started screaming there's people here there's people here and we ran right into my mo

Growing up, my mom was my very best friend. We did everything together and I told her everything. In high school some kids would skip school to sneak away to friends houses. I skipped school to hang out with my mom. She knew they gave us too many sick days so I used a few of them to have a fun day with just the two of us. We would watch game shows, have lunch, laugh and walk the mall . I’ll always remember and miss her laugh especially when they turned into uncontrollable giggle fits.

Vickie was lovely and I always enjoyed visiting with her. My girls were always excited to go places with her when they visited, and specifically enjoyed meeting up with her and John for Johnnies on their visits to Oklahoma. We were glad to know her. Sending our love and condolences to John, Sheila, Shawn, Brian, and Craig.

Aunt Vickie will be missed dearly. One of my last memories of her was when she and Uncle John were visiting my family in San Francisco. She was holding my first born son and her face was lit with contentment. Any time I think of her she is always smiling.
