Vickie Lynn Kirby Revoy
April 12, 1949 Ė May 23, 2012
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
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. Vickie
gave her own special and personal attention to the people she served,
whether in radio communication, accounting, tax preparation, Camp
Randall security for the Wisconsin Badgers or helping others in any way
she could. When Vickie wasnít highly absorbed in a Packers or Brewers
game, she loved to read.

Grief comes to us because we cared and a meaningful relationship as we
knew it has come to an end. We have loved and been loved. Consider how
much poorer our lives would be had this relationship never existed, in
the midst of our grief we can rejoice and give thanks for the life of
Vickie Lynn Kirby Revoy.
