Condolence & Memory Journal


I had the honor and pleasure to work with Vickie for nine years before she retired. I loved everything about her: her can-do spirit, her honesty, laughter, non-nonsense attitude, and genuine care for all human beings. I learned so much from Vickie about purchasing, negotiating and getting stuff done. May she be blessed forever and may all the heavenly angels take amazing care of her like she took care us.

I worked with Vickie for over ten years. She was the genuine article, much loved a respected by all. She loved the Lord Jesus and I loved that about her. I have no doubt she is with Him now and having the time of her life. God bless you Vickie. I love you and thank you for your kindness to me.

Vickie had an amazing way of humbling you with her no-nonsense attitude while also feeling completely supported and cared for. I now believe this was the love of Christ working through her. Working with her at the college from so early on has left many memories, and her retirement, battle with cancer and death has also left a tremendous loss. I know she is sitting next to Jesus in Heaven helping him prepare a place for us.intil then, friend.

We have Vickie to thank for every ADA chair and every ADA raised desk on the NVC campus. Vickie got them for us many years ago. She was such an inspiration and cared about everyone. I have no doubt that God has big plans for Vickie...always has! Sharon Dresser, NVC Disability Services

Vickie was a wonderful person who could put a smile on any ones face! There was a time when our two families did everything together and had so much fun! Our kids grew up together, our dogs had puppies together and we laughed and cried together. We shared a lot of adventures together, some good and some not so good but we made memories with every one. We will miss this sweet lady!

Dear Vickie, to the GREATEST Boss and even better friend. NVC has never been the same for me since you retired! You are loved, appreciated, and will be sorely missed. You have and will always be a blessing to our family. God Speed and I know..."Nuff said!"

I was so sadden when I heard from Leslie that Vickie had passed. She and I have known each other for some 21 years...when I arrived at Northwest Vista College. Loved her tremendously and I have missed her since her retirement. Many times I would talk to her sidekick Leslie and our conversation would always begin, "Les, have you seen Vickie lately? How is she doing? Tell her hello for me." Vickie would share her stories about her and Ronnie in the military and on their ranch. She was one hell of a worker...watching Vickie all day, by the time I returned home I was physically exhausted. She had all kinds of energy and NVC certainly did not lose money on her. Once she brought me a jar of her canned figs...God those were the best...brought me back to my childhood days. Both Vickie and I grew up in the country and she never lost track of her roots and that is what I admired most about her. I have missed you since your retirement Vickie and do me a favor...slow down a little, you cannot be tiring God out like you did me. Love you.
