STACY FRANCIS LICKERT WINOOSKI - Stacy Francis Lickert (nee' Campion) passed away peacefully on Wednesday, Sept. 18, 2013, after a long battle with a chronic illness. Stacy's family and friends were with her during her passing. Stacy was born in Perth Amboy, N.J., but spent most of her childhood growing up in Winooski. She attended St. Francis Xavier School in Winooski, then Rice Memorial High School in South Burlington, and graduated from the University of Vermont with a Bachelor's degree in nursing. Stacy's professional career in nursing spanned many years, and in several states, including Vermont, South Carolina, and Florida. Her focus was primarily as a labor and delivery nurse. Her passions included music, art, traveling, and animals (particularly horses), but the source of her greatest joy in life, and her greatest love, was her daughter, Jordon Alexa. Stacy is survived by her daughter, Jordon, of St. Albans; her mother, Nan Spence, of Winooski; her brother, Chris Campion, of Essex Junction; her stepbrother, Bill Spence, his wife, Michelle Spence, and their children, all of St. Albans; her longtime partner and friend, Jimmy Mitchell; her Aunt Mary and Uncle Joe Salinard; cousins, David Salinard and Kristy (Salinard) Aichroth; her cousins, Pam Lewey, Pat Lewey, Bobby Lewey, and Todd Lewey; her great-uncle, Dick Lewey; and cousins, William "Bim" Cleland, Roxanne (Cleland) Walczak, and Carole (Cleland) Everett. Stacy was predeceased by her father, Thomas F. Campion; and by her stepfather, Donald Spence. A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 22, 2013, at the LaVigne Funeral Home, 132 Main St., Winooski. A reception at the Winooski VFW
will immediately follow, located at 6 Maple St., Winooski. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations be made to the Humane Society of Chittenden County, 142 Kindness Court, South Burlington, VT 05403.
