Memories Timeline


  1. Wahpeton North Dakota
    I worked for Vicky many many years ago at a small Pizza Restaurant (The Pizza Express) that she and Gene owned in Breckenridge, Minnesota
    . While it saddens me to hear of her passing seeing her obituary did bring back some very special memories. We were all so very young and the kids were also all so very young. Times were tough back then but yet, somehow, they now seem so much less complicated.
    Thank You, Vicky, for rekindling some not yet forgotten memories.
    Blessed be the memory of Viky Williams Sieben. Rest Well.

    My deepest sympathy to Jack & Ginger, & all of Vicky’s friends and family.
    I feel honored to have known Vicky and work with her in the short time that we had. She had amazing strength and a boldness about her that I envied.
    I learned valuable lessons about life from her experiences that she shared with me during our visits. The one that really sticks out is that life truly is short and to make the most of each and every day and to laugh and smile even through the toughest times. I feel blessed to have known Vicky.
