Vickie Lynn Kirby Revoy

April 12, 1949 Ė May 23, 2012

It is a time of profound sadness for those who knew her, and will miss Vickie Lynn Kirby Revoy, age 63, who succumbed to her lifelong health challenges Wednesday, May 23, 2012, after returning to her Whitewater home following months of hospitalization and treatments. Vickie, together with her husband Rick, made the decision to discontinue life sustaining dialysis and other medical treatments and return to her cozy home to peacefully reminisce and share her final days with her soul mate Rick, whom she married April 24, 1993, and their four feline friends, Velvet, Lacey, Silkie and Tigger.

Sometimes you just never know
of lifeís ebbs and flows Just when you think all is good You get news that no one should.
Now itís time to really fight
A battle with no end in sight
Iím determined that I will win
So let the war begin
If by chance I fight and lose
An outcome that none
would choose
Be assured I did my best And know I am at peaceful rest.

Vickie Lynn Kirby was born April 12, 1949, in Edgerton Hospital, the first-born daughter of the late Kenneth and Marion (Shaw) Kirby. Alter graduating from Edgerton High School in 1967, Vickie attended UW-Whitewater, where she studied communications and accounting.
