Gerry Harris and Vickie (Harris) Cranmer

Vickie was a wife, mother, grandmother, sister, daughter... she is loved and missed by her family. This is one of the hardest things I’ve done... telling Vick’s story. She was the mother of 3 boys, grandmother of 4 grandsons, and 1 granddaughter. She left behind 7 brothers and sisters and parents. These words written come from the family. We love and miss you forever. We pray God will take her into His kingdom and not hold this against her for she is a God-loving person, child of God.

Vickie was a good caregiver, she had the most beautiful smile anyone ever saw. She loved flowers and plants, and loved to read. She was generous to others. She was a very loving sister, she was always a good time when you were around her. She is missed very much!

Vickie was a very hard worker, holding down 2 jobs a lot of the time to make ends meet for the family. Her husband was in the navy and often gone.

Vickie was not only a sister, she was a best friend, and confidant. Everyone went to her to tell her their problems. She was a secret keeper... she would not tell anyone what you told her. She was a good neighbor, wife and mother. She loved her children very much and always did what was best for them. She was a very loving faithful wife. Here grand-children were her crown of glory. She was always proud of them no matter what they accomplished. She always built you up-never knocked you down. She was our star until she couldn’t be any longer.

Vickie endured unfaithfulness, drunkenness and abandonment. She held it together for 34 years. She couldn’t take on our burdens any longer, she was getting weaker and we didn’t notice. Her marriage was falling apart. She wasn’t strong enough to hold it together. She was older now, tired and sick and didn’t have the strength to go on. Vickie ended her life abruptly without warning on April 22, 2015 by a self-inflicted gun-shot wound. There is not a day that goes by that we don’t miss her!
