Vickie’s love for music was reflected through her family and led her to do her life’s passion by leading her choir at Grandview. Vickie was a loving and faithful wife, a patient and gracious mother, a strong, beautiful daughter and an honest, joyous sister. We do not reflect on her suffering but remember her joyful smile and her amazing spirit. Your life was truly blessed just by knowing Vickie Sue. The songs Vickie sang so well on earth were just a rehearsal for God’s Heavenly Choir. You walk with Jesus now as we celebrate you home.
We love you,
Your Family
