She and her husband Robert dedicated much of their time to Ravens of Elijah (Kingsland, GA) and Gateway to Life Food Ministry (Hilliard, FL). She truly enjoyed serving her community and helping those in need. Vickie was a faithful servant of God and gladly shared her love for Christ with all she knew. She will be remembered for her sweet and kind heart who always put others first. She met the love of her life when she was just thirteen years old and they were happily married for 55 years. Vickie dearly loved her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and was always eager to show off the latest photos of her loves. She is survived by her loving husband, Robert L.
