Vicki L. Schmit of Davenport ND, 59, a caring and proud mother, passed away from Adenocarcinoma on January 16th. She left this world last Saturday afternoon, surrounded by many of her family members at the downtown Fargo Stanford Hospital.
Vicki Lee Vchulek was born on March 1, 1956 in Breckenridge Minn., to Charles and Loretta Vchulek. She started work in the medical field as a Candy Striper at the St. John’s Hospital while she attended Shanley High School. She joined the Air National Guard shortly after high school, which is where she gained her experience handling medical records. She worked in medical records for multiple medical facilities in Fargo for over 30 years. Vicki met Pat Schmit on his 27th birthday in 1985, and they married on August 22nd in 1987. She spent time working for RGIS during the final years of her life, where she made many friends while traveling for her job.
When she was not working, Vicki would try to spend as much time with her husband and four daughters as possible. She enjoyed outdoor activities with them, such as fishing on the Sheyenne with Pat and their dog Spike, spending time by the lake with her daughters, and babysitting her sisters while they shopped. Vicki was a member of St. Maurice’s Catholic Church, where she taught religious education classes for several years.
