Vicki was born in Calgary, AB, on January 19, 1960. Vicki was the youngest of five, growing up just outside of Cochrane. Her Sanden roots were demonstrated through her pragmatic, and creative approach to life.


She married the love of her life, October 25, 1980. Together they built a home, a business, and a life of their own. As a mother, Vicki was supportive, loving, and selfless, known for her great cooking, and the best hugs. She was a proud grandmother, and humble hostess of many family get-togethers. She was generous with her time and talents; volunteering her artistic skills at her children’s schools, helping fundraise for their extra curricular activities, and supporting her sister-in-law (Linda) with care packages for Women in Need.


Vicki joined the Centreline Manufacturing team as office manager. She played a vital role in its success for the last sixteen years.


Vicki loved Lego, puzzles, art, and interior design. She enjoyed tropical vacations, selling her paintings, and laughs with family.


Vicki is survived by her husband, Richard, her four children Michelle (Jim), Andy, Katie (Garry), and Becky (Steve); As well as her four siblings Carol, Greg (Linda), Deb (Darrell), and Doug; and three grandchildren Jacub, Madison, and Armaan.
