Vickey touched the lives of countless numbers of people in her community through many aspects of life. She inspired students with her teaching at Arapahoe Community College for 30 years. Music was a priority for Vickey from family songs to playing the violin in several orchestras, and in her later years she sang in several choirs. She also expressed herself through art, poetry, and story writing. She loved gardening and had a green thumb. Vickey loved nature and volunteered as a naturalist at several state parks and was instrumental in the beginnings of Roxborough State Park. She was also a part of NEcroSearch to use her botany skills to assist in the location of clandestine graves and related evidence. Most importantly she took the time to be a friend and listen to anyone who needed help. She will be deeply missed by the community in which she touched.
