Vicki Becker passed away peacefully on January 2, 2024 while at home surrounded by her loving family. After a brief yet heroic battle with cancer, she was called home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ at the age of 71.
Born on June 26, 1952, in Detroit, Michigan, to the late Victor and Betty (Tousignant) Wroblewski, Vicki was the third daughter in a family of five girls.
With her artistic flair and creativity, Vicki had the ability to bring beauty and harmony into every aspect of her life. Whether it was through her drawings, home decor, or floral arrangements, she had a knack for creating stunning visuals that reflected her vibrant personality. In her retired years, Vicki cherished her time spent enjoying the “lake life” on the shores of Houghton Lake, Michigan, creating treasured memories with her loved ones.
On November 13, 1982, Vicki married William D. Becker in a heartfelt ceremony in Columbia, South Carolina, surrounded by their closest family and friends. As a military wife, Vicki faced the challenges of frequent separations from her husband with strength and courage. She lovingly managed their home and raised their son, Zachary, during Bill’s deployments overseas. Bill deeply appreciated her unwavering support and dedication to her family.
Vicki’s professional career as an accountant spanned over two decades, primarily at Fluor Corporation in Greenville, South Carolina. During this time, she developed lifelong friendships with many of her co-workers. Throughout her career, Vicki demonstrated resilience and adaptability, always embracing new challenges with grace and determination.
Vicki’s love for travel knew no bounds. Exploring the world alongside Bill, she fearlessly embarked on countless adventures, creating cherished memories around the globe. Her appreciation for music shone through in her eclectic preferences, embracing everything from The Beatles, Rolling Stones, and Motown to a variety of jazz compositions.
True to her compassionate nature, Vicki dedicated her time to helping those in need. She volunteered with Meals on Wheels in Greenville County, expressing her deep concern for food insecurity in her community. Her selflessness and generosity touched the lives of many, leaving an indelible mark of kindness on all she encountered.
Above all, Vicki’s greatest joy in life was her granddaughter, Kennedy. As a devoted and adoring Grandma, she showered Kennedy with boundless love, creating a bond that will forever live on in her heart. Vicki’s infectious enthusiasm and imaginative spirit made her a cherished companion and playmate, creating lasting memories for her granddaughter.
