Obituary - Vickie L. Smith

Vickie Lynn Smith, 64, of Licking, Mo., passed away on August 7, 2020, after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Vickie was born on March 21, 1956, in Houston, Mo., to Victor and Elma Fern (Priddy) Jarrett. She had a sister, Betty, and a brother, Johnny.

Vickie was united in marriage to James Smith on February 14, 1976. They were married for 44 years and raised two wonderful children, Carrie, and James, Jr.

Vickie is survived by her husband, Jim; daughter, Carrie Sullins and husband BJ of Virginia; son, James, Jr. of Rolla; grandchildren, Ethan, Kylie, Kinsey and Cordelia; and sister, Betty and husband John of Illinois.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Vic and Fern; and brother, Johnny.

Vickie was a loving person that never knew a stranger. She enjoyed tending to her flowers in her front yard, going to yard sales, flea markets and thrift stores. She often gave most of her purchases away to friends and family; she always seemed to know who needed the treasures she had found. Vickie loved all animals but had a special place in her heart for her beloved Dobermans. Vickie also had a fondness for Camaros, so much so that she would not drive any other car. Vickie was also a tremendous KISS fan. Her home was full of KISS memorabilia.

A memorial service will be held Friday, August 14, 2020, at 10 a.m. at Fox Funeral Home, 128 S. Main St., Licking, MO. Online condolences may be left at Arrangements entrusted to Fox Funeral Home.
