In The Beatitudes, Matthew chapter 5, Jesus said “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God”. Vicky lived her life as a peacemaker, whether serving our country as a Contracting Professional, in her family life as mom, sister, daughter, wife and to her friends... Vicky accomplished great things in her life that few fully understood but it is her spirit of peacemaker that brings her the greatest reward now for she is truly a child of God! ❤️Dixie
