Vicki graduated from Beardstown High School in the class of 1971. She attended Western Illinois University for one year and then married David and she followed him as he served in the US Navy for eight years. They then moved back to Beardstown and her husband bought and operated Beardstown True Value while she stayed home and raised their children. After the death of her husband, Vicki took over running the store and continued the same personal service that her husband started, and has continued for over 30 years.
Vicki was a member of First Christian Church of Beardstown, Beardstown Emblem Club #474, Beardstown Chamber of Commerce, and Beardstown Lion’s Club.

Creativity and design came natural to Vicki, but most of all she cherished her family and friends and was always willing to offer a helping hand.
