As a young woman, she moved to Pacifica, California to begin a career as a book keeper, working for Lee Swan Company for 25 years. She met her husband Mel through her friend Pat where they started a great relationship resulting in a happy marriage that lasted over 40 years, until Mel’s death in 2015. While she had no children of her own, Mel had three sons that she was a great stepmother to. After retiring, Vicky loved spending time in her garden. She also had a great love of travel, particularly taking cruises all over the world. In addition to her travels, Vicky expressed her creative side through ceramics and special holiday crafts which her family still enjoys today. She will always be remembered as loving, sweet and kindhearted.
