Date: Thursday 15th June 2023
Vicky's Funeral Service will be held at All Saints Church, Clayton Le Moors followed by committal at Accrington Crematorium.
On 26th May 2023, peacefully at her home, Vicky, aged 47 years of Helmshore. The dearly beloved daughter of Jill and Franco, step daughter of David and loving sister of Tim and Jane.
Vicky loved helping people and this was apparent with her support work at Inspire, East Lancashire. She would never simply walk past a homeless person, instead she would always stop to give what she had and have a friendly chat. Vicky was warm, selfless and hilarious to be around, she loved life and mostly loved all the people she met which is why she had a lot of loyal friends. She would light up a room in seconds with her positive energy and would make everyone smile. As a child Vicky was happy, cheeky, a little Miss bossy boots and would get up to no good with her siblings. Her intelligence was evident as she attended University, gained a well earned Degree and a Masters Degree. Vicky was very spiritual, believing that ‘spirit is eternal’ and material things just don’t matter at all.
She had a Canary called George and he loved her to bits, she would let him fly freely around her home and he was like her little shadow. She loved all animals and would regularly talk to a goat on her way to work, just like Doctor Dolittle.
Vicky will be sadly missed by all her friends, family, pets and anyone or animal that has crossed her path.

Thinking of you all at this very sad time. Vicky will always been in our hearts, she was a great girl and friend.
I was so sorry to hear of Vicky’s passing. I only found out yesterday, otherwise I would have come to pay my respects. I was Vicky’s manager when she worked at Inspire East Lancs and it was pleasure and privilege to work alongside her. It was a special thing to see her using her own experiences to help others find their way in life. If Vicky had a fault, it was that she did *too* much, and I’d have to rein her in from trying to fix the whole world. Her ability to see the good in people was unsurpassed and her work was not a job but a vocation. We’d not spoken for a while but I know she had great plans for her future. I’m so very sorry these were cut short; Vicky deserved a long and happy life. The sort of life she wanted for others. I’ll miss her, but will always smile when I think of her.
