Vickie also owned and operated a construction and excavating business. She returned to school to get her CNA license and served for over 10 years at the Hollidaysburg Veterans Home before retiring in 1987.
Vickie loved the Lord and attended Grace Baptist Church until illness kept her away. She enjoyed bowling, had a green thumb and was passionate about gardening and her flowers. She was an avid animal lover and loved all of God’s amazing creations. She enjoyed friends and conversation and truly loved life. She could talk to anyone and help to brighten their day. Her favorite saying was, “The Lord gave me an abundance of smiles and I’d like to share one with you.” She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
