She leaves behind a daughter: Melody Harris; son: Tim Havrish; grandchildren: Kelli, Hailey, Amelia and Andrew: along with several nieces, nephews and cousins.
Vicki was a former member of Kiwanis in Stamford. She sometimes wore crazy costumes to raise money for different charitable events, the Ninja Turtle was her favorite. Vicki had several business endeavors; she was very hard working and wasn’t afraid of the failure. She would get back up dust herself off and keep going. Her passion and purpose for life made her an unconventional mother, that loved her children and grandchildren. The Thanksgiving holiday was her favorite time of year, her family would gather around the table, tell stories, and remember the good times. That is how she would like to be remembered, to leave behind the sorrow and have a celebration of life. Family and friends will be contacted when arrangements are made for that celebration.
“Mom we will miss you! Love you more”
