Vickie worked for many years as a receptionist for Dean Health Services and had retired from Mercyhealth Health System’s Human Resources Dept. due to ill health. She was a very devoted and loving wife, Mom, and Grandma, and her family meant everything to her! She enjoyed traveling with Richard. She loved camping and loved her trips to the family cabin in Hayward. Vickie loved fishing and sitting around a nice campfire. She’ll be missed for the wonderful desserts she was known for making, especially her Mississippi Mud Pie! Vickie was also a football fan and was a very avid fan of her Green Bay Packers!
