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 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.
