Vickie was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints attending in Tuscola and Mattoon. Vickie held many offices within her church, some of which included, Temple Worker, Seminary Teacher, Young Women Camp Director, and Stake Young Women President.
She was a Girl Scout leader in Arcola for over 20 years and she was also the Arcola Band Booster President for several years.
Vickie drove a school bus for the Arcola School District for many years and also worked as a secretary for Schilling Funeral Home, First Mid- Illinois Bank, and Ramshaw Real Estate.
Spending time with her family was by far her favorite thing to do. Her children have fond memories of baking chocolate chip cookies, making jam, and creating her beautiful holiday gingerbread houses. When grandchildren came along they instantly became the object of her affection and attention; she thought each of her grandchildren was extra-special.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Boy Scout Troop 88 of Arcola or the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge St. Louis.
