She was a member of Lighthouse Assembly of God in Marion. She loved her church family and her church very much. Vicki was a prayer warrior and constantly prayed over her family. Vicki was a fantastic housewife and loved to take care of children. In fact, being a day care provider was much more of a hobby than a job! She was a “bonus” grandma for the children she took care of. She also enjoyed going to rummage sales, playing bingo, camping, fishing, and singing for God. At Christmas time she enjoyed baking and passing out “goodie boxes”.
