Vickie Lynn relocated to Cookeville, Tennessee, in the 1990s. She worked in the home health industry as a caregiver for many years.  Her kind heart and love for others served well during her time as a caregiver.

Vickie was known for her loving spirit and kind smile.  She made everyone feel welcomed and quickly made friends with anyone she talked to.  One of Vickie’s biggest joys in life was when the family joined together for special events such as birthdays, weddings, and holidays.  Her family was the light of her life and primary interest.  She will be missed dearly.

Vickie’s son would like to extend a special thank you to those that lent a helping hand and supported her throughout the years. Her kind spirit will always be remembered by those that loved her.

In addition to her father, David L. Shillings, she was preceded in death by grandparents, Garfield and Alta Hedgecoth, Harrison and Ethel Shillings; dear friend, Mary H. Burgess; and six uncles and aunts.
