Vickie was the brightest personality I knew at UCLA. Even after college she was vibrant and fun. Despite our vast differences, we shared lengthy conversations, mostly reminiscent of the past. We had fun walking around Irvine Spectrum and enjoying lunch somewhere around her work while she was in Southern California right after college. She dropped a visit to Chicago to see the sights; the above picture is from our stroll around downtown. I will always remember the joy she brought to my life.
She will be missed.
Email from her husband:
It is with great regret and sadness that I write to inform you of Vickie's passing on December 9, 2011. I am consoled by the fact that she passed peacefully with her family at her side, and that she is no longer suffering from the cancer that she fought so bravely for the past year and a half.
May her soul rest in peace.
