All who knew her loved Vicki and she was known for her love of life, her laughter and the kindness that she shared with everyone she came in contact with. Vicki grew up in Big Spring, Texas where, in 1972, she met her husband and fell in love; they were married for more than 40 years and their love will continue until they meet again. Vicki was a missionary with her husband and their family. They traveled throughout Texas and Mexico and spread God’s word during the '80s. She spent the better part of her adult life working as an Office Manager for State Farm Insurance in Big Spring, Albuquerque and Colorado Springs where she met many customers that now call her friend.
