Vickie was quiet and shy, but very outspoken when needed. She loved to cook at home for her family and at church. She was known for her delicious cabbage, chicken salad and spaghetti. Vickie joined Works for Christ Christian Center and served faithfully under the leadership of Drs. Lewis and Alice Hooker. She loved her “Queen A”, Dr. Alice Hooker whom she made herself available to cook anytime her pastor needed her. Vickie believed in the Lord and loved Him with all her heart. She was never ashamed to give Him praise. Even in her last days singing, clapping, waving her hands; giving God the Praise was a part of her daily devotion.
