Vickie’s niece Jessica and nephew Matthew were the loves of her life and were like two of her own. She would take them to story time at the library. She would be Matthew’s den leader and Jessica’s Girl Scout leader and cookie mom. She attended all of Matthew’s ball games and Jessica’s cheerleading. She was their room mother where she would read stories to the class and bake cookies. She would go and get professional photos taken of the three of them. No one knows the joys they brought to her heart. They were her whole life. Other favorite moments included coloring Easter eggs and decorating the Christmas tree.
Many young people and even a few older ones call her “Aunt Vickie”. She has many lifelong friends that she cherished: Linda Broughton, Terri Boehringer, Gloria Miller Green, Barbara Beaty Daffner, Kim Van-Tine, Lisa Romie, Rose Sampson and Terri Beyer.
Vickie enjoyed writing letters to friends, sending greeting cards for every occasion, reading and writing poems. Two of her poems were published from a contest she entered because she came in 1st and 2nd place. They were published by Eber and Wein Publishing Co. in NY, NY. Her favorite authors were Helen Steiner Rice and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. During her Senior year she drew a picture of the album “Stairway to Heaven” with the old man carrying a lantern as this was her favorite song.
Vickie’s interests included watching Real Police Stories, Forensic Files, Dateline, 20/20, Unsolved Mysteries, 60 Minutes and America’s Most Wanted. She liked playing games like Words with Friends, Scrabble, Solitaire games, coloring, word searches, Second Look, Sudoku, Monopoly, Sorry, and as a child, Candyland. Vickie enjoyed taking pictures, sipping on iced tea and decaffeinated Diet Pepsi, 70’s and gospel music and while being married to Tim Moseley, you learn to like Blue Grass!
Vickie collected Cherish Teddies, Angels, statues of Jesus, snowbunnies and snowbabies. She has owned and loved as if they were her “kids”, 6 dogs: Bandit, a German Shepherd/Irish Setter; Smokey, a Siberian Husky/Wolfe; Harley, a Golden Retriever/Chocolate Lab and those that were still with her: Jewel, a German Shepherd/Boxer, Jackson, a Jack Russell and Simba, an Australian Cattle Dog. She was an avid animal lover and has given to 7 charities and has always wanted a chimpanzee.
Vickie worked full time over the years at Holiday Inn, City Transfer and Storage Company, Chmiels Market, and Heartland of Piqua Nursing home. She sold Avon, worked at West Central Juvenile Detention Center and Troy Dairy Barn where she worked with her best friend Marjorie Bondurant Fraley who preceded her in death in 2008.
She was a member of Cornerstone Baptist Church where she was proud to do the card ministry. Most of all and most important, Vickie loved our Dear Lord Jesus Christ and believed he died on the cross to save us from sin. She was baptized January 10, 1969. Vickie asked that you join one of Cornerstone’s services and receive one of the greatest blessings of all.
