Vicki was living with cancer; however it did not define her, or defeat her. Her courage, grace, and determination inspired us all. Vicki is a kindhearted soul who treated everyone like they were family. Her family and friends were everything to her. Her spirit will never leave us.
Vicki had a zest for life and she loved outdoor activities such as volleyball, skiing, kayaking and cycling. She loved the beach, body surfing and boogie boarding.She especially loved hiking with her dogs. She was an avid gardener, enjoying with her husband all the beautiful flowers that would appear throughout the seasons.
Vicki adopted 4 beautiful, sweet, large dogs: Maggie, Clyde, Gabriel and Mae. She was a loving Mommy to them, and thanks to Vicki they all lived very pampered and long lives.
Besides her husband Ron, she is survived by her dog Mae. She also leaves her Mother-in-law Rose Marie “Cookie” McLellan, Stepson Timothy McLellan, Stepdaughter Bailey Seeger and her husband Cory Seeger, and Granddaughter Summer Rose Seeger (all of Plainville).
Vicki also leaves behind to share her memories her siblings, Rita (Eykelhoff) Dempsey and her husband Michael, her brother Richard Eykelhoff and his wife Joanie, and numerous nieces, nephews, and great-nieces and nephews. She was the favorite, fun aunt to them all, and she has left them with many priceless memories. She is also survived by several aunts, uncles and cousins.
There are no calling hours. A celebration of Vicki’s life will be held in the spring with the date to be determined.
