Vicki Margo Wright, 75 of Washington, Indiana passed away, into her heavenly home on February 12, 2022 at her home, surrounded by her family. She was born on November 2, 1946 in Elnora, Indiana to James and Pauline (Myers) Brown. She graduated from Elnora High School in 1964 and Vincennes University in 1966.
Vicki initially worked as a secretary and telephone operator in Vincennes, Indiana. She then worked at NWSC Crane, where she served as secretary to the base commander and later in human resources. In 1993, she continued her career at Ft. Irwin, CA, Ft. Belvoir, VA and later with Vicki M. Wright and Associates based in Washington.
Vicki became a Christian as a teenager and a member of the Elnora Christian Church. Later in life, she attended and became a member of First Baptist Church in Barstow, CA, Emmanuel Baptist Church in Alexandria, VA and finally New Hope Christian Church in Washington. It was Vicki’s earnest desire for her children and grandchildren, in whom she took great pride and joy, to each develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
One of Vicki’s hobbies was her love for the history of Mt. Vernon, VA, and she spent several years role-playing Martha Washington there. She also loved stimulating the economy by antiquing and adorning her home with many of her treasured finds. Vicki also loved to travel to visit family and friends, watching her grandchildren’s sporting events and musical activities, spending quality time with her family and friends, and giving sacrificially of herself to help others.
Vicki loved participating in various local clubs and organizations. She was a 50-year member of Eastern Star and also enjoyed the companionship of the April Debs Homemaker’s Club, Garden Club, Red Hats and Book Club.
Vicki was preceded in death by her parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and her beloved lazy cat, Charlie.
