Mrs. Vickers was a very witty person with a wonderful sense of humor.

She enjoyed buying and selling antiques, mostly acquired from yard sales that she frequented each weekend.   She also had a passion for decorating, especially during the holiday season.  Christmas was her favorite time of the year to decorate the home.  She had an extensive doll collection that she had acquired over the years and often displayed her dolls at the library and local clubs, where she spoke to those in attendance about her collection.

She loved spending time with family, hosting family dinners, and long weekends at her house.  Later in life, she enjoyed spending time on her porch enjoying nature.

She is survived by her daughters, Cora (Ronnie) Smith, Valley; Gena Vickers Montalbano, Valley; five grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; numerous great-great grandchildren.
