Vicki worked hard all her life, starting with a tour in the US Marine Corp, followed by 37 years with Mountain Bell, retiring for the first time from Quest. Vicki was a strong union member rising to the Presidency of the Communications Workers of America, a post she held for several years. She operated Vicki’s Donuts in Albuquerque’s South Valley for several years. Afterwards, she worked for Southwest Airlines for 20 years, and again, led the local International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers union as President before finally retiring. Her life was a testament for how she loved her family, friends and her work.
