I was so shocked and saddened to learn of Vicki's passing. She and I had been friends since jr high days and had once been housemates with another friend in the late 70s. She had always loved my guitar music and had once choreographed a dance to one of the songs from my Dayspring guitar album, for herself and two young girls, which they performed on the front lawn of Love Library. I saw her for the last time in March of 2018, when she came to see me play guitar at a Bodhi Imports event, where bought a cd copy of the Dayspring album, to replace her old wornout cassette copy, she had bought way back in the early 80s. She was always a good friend and always a joy to see. Her passing breaks my heart. She was a Light in our midst that will always be missed, but will never be forgotten by those whose lives she touched. Safe Journey Home, dear friend.

Who could not be warmed by that smile?  We've lost a beautiful classmate and a kind, kind woman. It was a rare delight to see Bequita at reunions and to reconnect with her in the last few years.  We send our heartfelt condolences to family and friends.

Vicki's passing is such a loss for the class of '71. Her bright smile and joyous attitude will be in our heats and minds forever.

Vicky was open and loving in Highschool,  making it fun to see her in the halls and activities.  Tho we weren't close friends those days we were friends none the less because of her inclusive and welcoming personality.  Years later as I would continue to run into her at Open Harvest we made it a point to get together once in a while for a snack, drink and visit at the coffee shop next door.  I enjoyed getting to know her better in our 50's and later appreciated her positive attitude and humor thru much of her last struggle.  She continued to care and be interested in others and have a good word to say of everyone.   Joyous passage friend,  you are missed and remembered with love.

Vicki is a force to be reckoned with: fun, loving, open, willing and knew how to be present; a gift indeed. Like all good class of '71ers, Vicki would hang out and related with everyone/all cliches. Her smile and laughter were contagious. I caught up with her a couple of years ago while moving my brother Jim from SD, Ca to LKN. She was in the midst of chemo. I picked her up for a "treatment" and stayed in the room leaving with the attending Nurses. It was intimate and a human-moment I will remember fondly. We kept in touch for a bit and I followed her postings. I have great admiration for her Spirit and tenacity. Until we meet again, Happy Trails my friend. Grateful, Linda Yost

I don’t think I had seen Vicki since we graduated from LSE, until I saw her at Doug Kern’s service.  We sat with Jeff Schneider and had several other HS pals nearby.  We talked about Doug and what he had gone through. She shared with me the health  battle she was fighting. Although, I didn’t see her again, other than on FB, she never appeared to lose her optimism and her beautiful smile! Cheers to a life well-lived, my friend!💐

I truly hope that Vicki realized how loved she was by so many.  We, too frequently, live in the now and forget how we affected people in so many ways by our good deeds, gestures or even with a smile.

I met Vicki in first grade and we remained friends ever since. We would get together sometimes when I visited family in Lincoln.  I spoke to her on the phone just a week before her passing. She brought joy and laughter to all who knew her. Memories of Vicki will make us smile. Be at peace...

RIP Vicki.   We were friends in school and on Facebook.   I will miss her warm smile and every year she sent me birthday wishes - - which I will surely miss.
