Vernon and he survives in Patoka.

Vicky was a proud alumni of Patoka High School Class of 1969 where she made lifetime friendships. She was a woman who “wore many hats” and there wasn’t anything she couldn’t do. Vicky was a loyal employee of World Color Press in Salem. She owned and operated her own restaurant, Vic’s Place in Patoka. She was a voice of encouragement to the students at Bronson School in Centralia while working as a cook, and bus aid. Vicky also shared her compassionate heart and gift of taking care of others while being a home health caregiver for grateful clients, helping them to stay in the comfort of their home. She was known to many as the psychic from Patoka.


Vicky was a forty-three year member of Alcoholics Anonymous and never hesitated to share her story to uplift anyone struggling with addiction. She was a member of the Women of the Moose. She never met a stranger, having a warm smile and a kind word for everyone she met. Vicky was a true treasure hunter, going to yard sales and thrift stores in search of a good cookbook. She had a lifelong love of cooking, sharing her delicious meals with family and friends, and customers that frequented her restaurant. Vicky grew beautiful vegetable gardens and made sure to can their fresh flavors to be savored through all seasons. She was especially famous for her tasty sun pickles that everyone looked forward to each canning season. Vicky took every opportunity to bring joy, comfort, and peace to anyone she could, always putting others needs before her own. Vicky was a treasure to her family, friends, and community and she definitely left a mark of generosity, compassion, kindness, and love.
