Mathes McClaflin. Vickie loved spending time in her garden, raising her chickens,
working in her flower beds and tending to her beloved sunflowers. When she
wasn’t outside, she was inside watching The Golden Girls, or going on late night
shopping sprees with her daughters. She was a very loving wife, mother,
grandmother, and friend. She would light up a room with her laughter and
kindness. Vickie always took care of everyone around her, no matter if it was
family, a friend, or a stranger. She was the bond that held her family together.
She will be dearly missed. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death
by her granddaughter, Madison Christy (Pumpkin), and brother, Bob McClaflin.
She is survived by her loving husband, Walter Nelson, daughters, Shaunna Christy

Nelson (Shooting Star), Savanna Duron (Nanners), and Teegan Nelson (Ears), and
many more family and friends.
