Vicki Marie Busch-Stoddard
March 4, 1951 - May 22, 2014
On May 22, 2014, after a long and brave fight with breast cancer, Vicki Marie Busch-Stoddard went home. Her body failed when her spirit never did. We lost the matriarch and soul of our family. For those who knew her, knew she put her family and friends before herself. She was proudest of her family, especially her Grandson Brennin who she loved watching grow up and rarely missed one of his soccer games. She was a dedicated employee of the State of Oregon for 25 years and made many lifelong friends.
She was a recovering catholic and a proud hippy to the end. Vicki was preceeded in death by her parents Victor and Letha Busch, her brothers James and Richard Busch, Sr. Those she left to carry on within her spirit and love are her daughter Jessica Stoddard-Kirsch, her grandson Brennin Kirsch, her Niece Beverly Chapin, her Great-Nephews Tanner and Garrett Chapin, her nephew Richard Busch Jr. and his daughters. Also her boyfriend of 16 years James Taylor and his sons Aaron Taylor, Daniel Taylor, along with his children Malikai, Gavin and Zoey, his daughter Andrea Taylor and her son Kyler Walton. We will be holding a private celebration of life for Vicki in Salem, Oregon on June 7, 2014
