She also worked for Southwest Youth Village, where she had a heart for everyone there and loved her job. Vickie was a huge sports fan and loved the Cardinals, Colts, IU, and the Lincoln Alice’s. She was very thoughtful, loved life and the people she was around to the fullest. Vickie’s unwavering devotion and dedication to her family and friends were second to none.
