  5. It was an honor to know Vicki. We worked together for nearly 17 years and she set an excellent example everyday. She was a role model and friend. I miss her tremendously and the light she carried around her. Thank you sharing kindness always.

  6. My deepest sympathy for the loss of Vicky , Wonderful Mother much loved by her special family and extended family and friends , A very special woman!…

  7. I am so grateful to have met Vicki, she radiated light, love and warmth. I have never not seen her with a smile not on her face. She always made me feel welcomed, loved and apart of her family. I have the most amazing memories with her and the barone family. Vicki, you will be missed, you are loved and I send my deepest condolences to your family.

  8. Growing up with Vicki she was always the “little sister” because Randy and I were best friends. Sadly they moved to Colorado and we only got to see each other every 4-5 years.
    Seems suddenly we were all grown up and married with children of our own. Vicki was a shining star. She flourished in all she did. Her work never kept her from being an amazing mother. She and Steve raised 2 beautiful and accomplished children. When Steve died it hit everyone hard. Knowing their love I did not think she would love again. On a visit there (she was always the most gracious hostess) we met a man she had met. His name was Michael. (I think he burned the steaks we had for dinner that night lol). We would have “girl” conversations of should I or not. I laughingly told her not. I’m so glad she found love again after her great loss. She was an amazing woman and friend/cousin. Her illness came as such a shock. She will always be that vivacious redhead with such a lust for life to me. I will miss you Vicki and look to the stars to see you still shining bright!

  9. All my Love to Vicki and her family.
    She was a warm, familiar, and inviting face to myself through the years…..she will be dearly missed.
    God Bless.

    With Love,

    J.R. Bautista

  10. So sorry for you loss. Vicki was such a nice person. I always appreciated how she treated people. My thoughts are with her family.

  11. Every single time we met at a NIBA conference Vicki found a way to both enliven our conversation and add to my knowledge on some subject or other. What an extraordinary, talented and compassionate woman- sorely to be missed.

  12. I had known Vicki for about 25 years through NIBA and always considered her to be a friend, mentor and just s gentle soul. We celebrated her marriage, her happiness and how she felt her future was in place. I will miss her quiet determination and laughter.

  13. Life is about the Journey and the experiences of the flesh with no set destination … her light will always live forward and her memory and her legacy will stay with all of us who were privileged enough to have known her… she always carried a smile and a stranger was just a friend she had not met yet.. always made a point to say hello. I extend my sincere condolences to those she left behind. Know that she is not gone just transitioned to her next challenge.. we all live forever!!

  14. Thoughts and prayers to all. Such a kind supportive lady for me while i was dawn’s coach. She will be missed

  15. Our thoughts and prayers for a charming soccer and basketball companion during our kids many competitions. Bless her and all those who hold her close.

  16. I had the pleasure and privilege of working with Vicki in various capacities for twenty years. I can’t think of a more competent, fair and balanced executive and colleague in my 35 years of professional life. More importantly was the value she placed on her family and the community, which we often discussed late in the day. You are dearly missed Vicki, may God Bless you and your entire family.

  17. To Dawn and family there are not words to express our sadness. Dawn as one of your coaches your mom was always willing to help out if needed. Joe had the opportunity to work with her on a board that they both served on and we both want to extend our condolences. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time.

  18. My condolences to Vicki’s family and friends. Although she is no longer among us, her legacy, compassion and love can be seen by all in her family and friends. I hope that we can all emulate Vicki’s qualities, as she made the world a better place.

  19. My deepest sympathies to Vicki’s family. I am a neighbor and was also a friend of Vicki’s on the Lone Tree Golf League. Her passion, enthusiasm and zest for life was contagious and it was always a treat to be paired up with her on the golf course. She spoke proudly and lovingly of her wonderful family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  20. I am going to miss Vicki so much as her step sister even though I live out of state and we often had sporadic communications she was dear to my heart and most I will miss her graciousness and humor.

  21. Vicki was a Board member of JAB Broadband and I always appreciated her support of the management team. She was always very professional, gracious and respectful. I will hold her family in my thoughts and prayers.

  22. Dear Michael,

    Sorry for your loss. Vicki is now watching over you in heaven. May God bless you and your family through this hard time.

    Sending you lots of love and prayer.


  23. Joy Rope April 19,2019 6:00am can’t sleep

    It was such a joy growing up with the few memories I had of my Colorado cousins before theymoved from Texas. Then us going to visit in Colorado many times, and Vicki always such an awesome hostess making sure Gary and I, or whoever was there, were having a fabulous time.
    I’m the oldest cousin of the 4 daughters but I’ve always looked up to Vicki. She was always so calm, soft spoken, smart, talented, athletic(look at all the sports she plays) hospitable (how does someone get people to take there shoes off in both their homes?!),pretty (always smiling…..I was there about three weeks ago, and the gorgeous lady knew she was dying but she was smiling and talking to me)!! She actually had me believing she was gonna live. One thing we all know is she’s in a better place now and not in any pain!! She’s one of our beautiful ANGELS!

  24. What wonderful tributes have been written about this beautiful soul. I, too, only knew Vicki as a soccer and basketball “mom.” She was always as everything described before, and more! I also had the pleasure of knowing Steve and meeting Michael at one of our “Thanksgiving basketball reunion get togethers” at the Myers’ home.

    I consider myself blessed to have known this beautiful, caring, loving woman, and her beautiful daughters Dawn and Chandler. May the “wonderfulness” of Vicki live on in them.

    I hope it helps to know others care and share in your sorrow. Vicki will be undeniably missed.

    My love and sympathy,

  25. Vicki was kind, intelligent and loving! Her family meant the world to her! I will truly miss the laughter and tears we have shared together the passed 20 years ! My thoughts and prayers are with the family!

  26. Dear Michael,

    I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your beautiful wife. Please know that I am thinking of you and that you and your family are in my prayers. My deepest condolences.

    -Cindy Sayers
