Born on July 27, 1956, in Norfolk, Virginia, Vickie was the daughter of the late Frank and Melva Gillikin. Vickie grew up in the tight-knit community of Harkers Island, North Carolina, where she resided for most of her adult life. Known for her kind heart and gentle nature, she touched the lives of all who had the privilege of knowing her.
During her career, Vickie showcased her talent as a seamstress, working at Blue Bell and Creative Outlet. Later in life, Vickie transitioned her career and dedicated herself as a Dietary Aide at Snug Harbor Nursing Home as well as Pruitt Health in Sea Level. Her warm smile and caring nature provided comfort not only to the patients but also to their families.
Vickie was a woman of faith who loved the Lord with all her heart. She will be remembered for her genuine kindness, her infectious laughter, and her steady love for her family. Vickie was the sweetest woman you’d ever have met and will be deeply missed.
