May 27, 1951 - January 13, 2020

It's with great sadness and broken hearts our loving wife, mother, nanny, sister, sister-in-law, and good friend gained her "Angel Wings" on January 13, 2020.
She leaves behind her husband Dave; and their daughters, Melanie (Henry), and Tracy (Dallas); and her grandchildren, Donavon, Alyssa, Dallas Jr., and Kayden. As well as her three sisters, two brothers, sister and brothers-in-law and numerous nieces and nephews. Nanny had nicknames for her grandchildren: (Dono, Princess, Little D, and My Gift).
She was predeceased by her parents, two brothers, family members, and good friends.
Vicky was born on May 27,1951, in Hudson Bay, Saskatchewan and in her early years they moved to Winnipeg where she grew up in the North End. She met the love of her life Dave in high school and they were high school sweethearts and recently celebrated their 46th wedding anniversary. Vicky had a love for sewing, gardening, animals and baking. Known for her "butter tarts" every Christmas and loved baking with all her grandchildren. Nanny was their "Number One" fan cheering them on in all their sports.
We want to thank the nurses at the Health Sciences Centre (Micu/ICU) for all their love, compassion, and care over the last several weeks.
Donations in Vicky's memory can be made to Heart & Stroke Foundation of Manitoba or Winnipeg Humane Society.
Memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 18 at 6:00 p.m. at Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main St., Winnipeg, MB.
