A devoted wife, mother and homemaker, Vickie was an excellent cook and enjoyed preparing meals for her family. She took pride in taking care of her husband, children and home throughout the years. She was adamant that her children get dressed on Sunday’s to attend church and be Saved. It brought great joy to her to spend time with her grandchildren. She loved watching QVC and having the latest kitchen gadgets. Her collection of makeup, jewelry, perfume and nail polish was anything but short; as you could always find with her nails painted, hair fixed and jewelry on. To no surprise, she was a master at Snapchat and Facebook, which kept her informed on her children, grandchildren and world news. She openly shared her cooking recipes and taught family members how to make tamales. After the death of her husband, she was gifted a dog, named Gidget, who became her best friend and companion.
