Imogene "Vicky" Vickery Obituary

Imogene, “Vicky” Vickery, 94 of Wilmore, KY went home to be with her Lord on Tuesday, June 4, 2024.


Vicky was born May 8,1930 in Bethesda, Wayne Co., KY. She received her teaching certificate from Eastern Kentucky University. Her teaching career began in Pensacola FL., but she returned to Lexington 2 years later and taught at Athens Elementary and then transferred to Tates Creek Elementary until retirement. Vicky inspired her third graders to do their best and letting them know nothing was out of their reach.


Vicky’s heart was full of joy and one could hear her singing in the hallways of Tates Creek Elementary or walking with the Turfland Mall Walkers. She was a member of Gardenside Christian Church, a 50 year member of the Transylvania Chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution, and an Emeritus of the Lexington Singers. Vicky served Meals on Wheels and worked at Wolf Wiles Department Store during the summers.


Being an avid supporter of University of KY basketball and football, one could spot her in the crowd dressed in her blue and white and carrying pom poms. She never met a piece of chocolate that she didn’t like


She will be remembered for her laughter, kindness, quick sense of humor, and generosity. She loved her family and friends who loved her in return.


She was preceded in death by her parents, Issac Vickery and Ala Shearer; siblings Harold Vickery, Bob Vickery, Vivian Todd, and Nephew Paul Vickery. She is survived by nieces Jane (Mike) Brown, Becky (Davd) Keller, Linda (Jeff) Semler; nephews Dan (Kathy) Vickery, and Jerry (Rosie) Vickery.


Visitation will be Friday 14, 2024 at 1:00pm with a memorial service following at 2:00pm at Milward Funeral Home, 1509 Trent Blvd., Lexington, KY. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her honor to the Tates Creek Elementary Library, 1113 Centre Pky., Lexington, KY 40507 or Bluegrass Care Navigators, 1733 Harrodsburg Rd., Lexington, KY 40504.
