Victoria "Vickie" Lynn Williams Haskins, 60, of Hinesville, passed away Saturday, Feb. 8, 2014, at Hospice Savannah with family by her side.
Vickie was born in Ludowici on Nov. 22, 1953, to the late Wendell and Sybil Williams. Vickie graduated with an Associate's in Science degree from Northern Virginia Community College. After graduation, she took a position at Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), where she was awarded commendation for her work.
She then continued her studies, majoring in early childhood development. This gave grounding as an educator to youngsters. She was employed as an educator at the time she fell ill.
Vickie had the gentlest and kindest spirit, which was magnified by her faith in God. She had accepted the Lord Jesus into her life as a teenager. Her faith became the anchor for her life.
Vickie loved children. She loved animals and birds. Vickie was giving and compassionate. She had a beautiful voice and used this gift in choir at church. Vickie had many passions; her children (Eric and Kimberly), her family, nature and God.
As great as her love for children and family, her greatest love was that for God and His Son, Jesus. Vickie was filled with the Holy Spirit. Even in difficult times, she never forgot that her strength came from God. This was especially reflected in the gracefulness in how she handled her illness.
Vickie made a difference in the world. With each child she loved and encouraged, with her family with her friends. Among all her contributions, Vickie would say it was her children, Eric and Kimberly. She loved them with a love that only a mother could.
Vickie had great faith, hope and love. Her greatest gift was that of love. Vickie will be greatly missed by all of those who knew and loved her.
Survivors are her son, Eric D' Hamel Haskins of Charleston; daughter, Kimberly Elizabeth Haskins of Charleston; sisters, Linda Collingsworth of Hinesville, Janice (Ron) Farrer of Midway and Brenda D'Angelo of Hinesville; brother, Larry Williams of Jesup; former husband, Dr. Curtis D. Haskins of Charleston; and many nieces and nephews who loved "Aunt Vickie" dearly.
