Vicki Lynn(Kemp) Romero, age 61 of Ft. Atkinson and formerly of Janesville joined her parents, Robert A. D. Kemp and Rose M. (Miller-Kemp) Vine in Heaven on Monday, December 17, 2018. Vicki was born in Janesville on September 20, 1957 with only one functioning kidney, creating health problems that finally ended in renal failure. With each new challenge that was thrown at her, she tackled them head on with wit and determination. Vicki was able to fulfill her greatest wish to become a mother and eventually at grandmother, each bringing her endless joy. Vicki’s favorite pastime was spending time with her grandchildren and her special companion, BamBam.
