Vicki loved Jesus and her favorite scripture was Psalms 34:4. She persevered through many struggles and rededicated her life to Jesus in 2001. She had a huge heart, full of love and joy, and was always helping family & friends, and strangers, however possible. She was so loved by her entire extended family, who will miss her easy laughter, beautiful smile and frequent hugs. Her vibrant and generous personality will be greatly missed.
She will be inurned at Longview Memorial Park and Cemetery in Longview, WA.
