Vicki Veronica Vola, 68, died peacefully on Saturday, March 29, 2014, in the Lincoln Park Care Center, where she received excellent and loving care for many years. The staff there was like a second family to her and are to be commended for their grace, diligence and compassion. A native of Belmar, Vicki received a BS in Biology from Chestnut Hill College and an MA in Teaching from Fairleigh Dickinson University. She taught Biology in NYC and Wall Twp., NJ and owned pet stores, including Pet Agree, Manahawkin NJ and The Parrot Place, Vinton VA. She was known for her hand raised exotic birds, and considered an expert in the field, at times raising over 100 babies at a time. Vicki was a free spirit who sold sailboats and sailed from NJ to Bermuda and other ports. She bred champion German Shepherds, Yorkshire and Australian Terriers.
Her parents, Chief Lawrence Vola and Grace Madonna Vola of Belmar NJ, predeceased her. She will be greatly missed by her siblings, Joyce, Linda and husband Charlie Sharp, Aiken SC, and Larry and wife Theresa of Howell; her nieces, Melanie Clinch, Gretchen Mc Grath, Pauline, Grace and Mary Vola, as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and maybe a few ex-husbands. There will be no public viewing. No service is planned as yet. Donations to the
or your local Animal Shelter may be made in Vicki's memory. Online condolences at www.codeymackeyfh.com.
