Vicky lead a very wonderful and adventurous life. She was always a very giving and caring person who put family first. She could put together the best and most enjoyable family and friend gatherings no matter the occasion. Vicky was a friend to everyone she encountered, whether work related, or someone she just met. Her heart was full of love, laughter, and a wealth of generosity. She started a little saying a long time ago, and it still goes on until we see each other again, “I Love You to the Moon and Back”.
Vicky is proceeded in death by her parents, and her little sister Jackie Warr. She is survived by her husband Greg, brothers Bob (Sue) Gustin, and Glade Gustin, sisters Karen Cook, Diana (Mitch) Walk, Billie (Keith) Bell, son Shawn (Jen) Schwantes, daughters Joey Thomas, Jessica Ragsdale, and Heather (Kurt) Landmon, grandchildren (Ocia, Tatum, and Jayda Gillette, Garren Schwantes, Mason Landmon and Bodee Ragsdale.
