With great sadness, the family of Sue Vickers announced her passing from this life on Saturday, November 4th after an extended illness.
Sue was a native of Manchester, born August 27, 1951. She graduated from Manchester Central High School and earned a BS degree in Mathematics from Middle Tennessee State University. After living in Washington, DC, St. Petersburg. FL, and Southern California for most of her adult life, she retired in 2015 to the farm where she grew up. She attended World Outreach Church in Murfreesboro.
Her work life included careers in computer programming and consulting, software and technical services sales, real estate sales, and property management. She was always eager to learn more about the world, experience new adventures, and develop new skills.
She had a determined and independent spirit, and excelled in her multiple careers, often competing in male dominated professions.
While in California she began hosting international students. Over the years she provided a temporary home to over 100 students from more than 30 countries, including many who became lifelong friends.
She had a great curiosity, and loved traveling the world, but also felt a deep attachment to the Manchester farm where she grew up.
Sue loved cooking, especially all kinds of international foods. She was an avid gardener, and enjoyed being the family’s unofficial historian.
Sue was preceded in death by parents Marvin Vickers and Bessie Bell Vickers, sister Ilene Vickers Serino, and nephew Randy Cochran.
Survived by brothers Jack Vickers, Larry Vickers, and Frank Vickers, and sister Reba Vickers Cochran, nieces Kim Cochran Pecorino, Kelli Cochran Millraney, Jennifer Vickers Carden, Caroline Vickers Hannah, Dawn Serino Goddard, Erin Vickers Price, and Amy Vickers Jordan, nephews Jeff Vickers, Chris Vickers, and Andy Vickers, and a large family of in-laws, great nieces and nephews, and cousins.
Funeral services will be Thursday, November 9th at 1:00 pm at Coffee County Funeral Home in Manchester, with visitation beginning at 11:00. In lieu of flowers, the family has suggested donations can be made to Alive Hospice of Murfreesboro.
