Vicki Diane (Knowles) Sheets, 54, of Great Falls, loving mom, devoted wife and cherished daughter, died of metastatic breast cancer Tuesday, April 23, at her home.
The Guest Book is expired.
A celebration of her life is 2 p.m. Monday at Hillcrest Lawn Memorial Chapel. Schnider Funeral Home is handling arrangements.
Vicki was born Oct. 14, 1958, in Great Falls and graduated from Great Falls High School. She was a medical receptionist for Don Blevins, DDS, before working for Plentywood Optometry. Vicki was employed at Family Chiropractic for Dr. Marvin Harris and Dr. Pam Blanchard. Most recently, she worked for Advanced Neurology for Dr. Dietrich and Dr. Henning. Up until the very end, Vicki found great joy and fulfillment in her work and touched all she came in contact with.
Vicki married the love of her life, Charles Sheets, in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, on Sept 27, 1985.
On April 13, 1989, Vicki gave birth to her second great love, Ali Jo. Ali was the light of her life and in her daughter, a piece of Vicki will always live on.
Vicki loved her friends "the Shopping Sisters;" and was the president of the "S" Club. Vicki was the ultimate scrapbooker and photographer and could write the perfect thank you note. Vicki loved chocolate, spring flowers and receiving sapphires from her dad's loving hands. She could host the perfect party, throw the grandest family gathering and could cook Paula Deen under the table. No holiday will ever be the same without our sweet hostess.
Family was Vicki's most prized possession. She leaves behind her husband, Charles Sheets; daughter Ali Jo Sheets; her parents, Bruce and Jean Knowles; and one fuzzy grandchild - all of Great Falls. Her heart was big enough to embrace countless brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and beloved friends.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents, aunts, uncles, and special friend Fred Schultz, who was there to greet our dear Vic with a comforting embrace and a warm smile. Maybe even share a piece of chocolate with her.
Memorials are suggested to the Special Olympic Hornets, P.O. Box 3507, Great Falls, MT 59403; or a
