Obituary

Vickie Jean Duncan, of Hewitt, left this world peacefully on Thursday, September 8, at the age of 65. Visitation will be Sunday, September 11, at 2 p.m., followed by a 3 p.m. service at Grace Gardens Funeral Home. 

Vickie will be remembered as someone who always made time for family and friends. She loved to make meals and desserts for others, and had a reputation as an excellent baker. She always remembered everyone’s favorite things and often gave thoughtful gifts. She wanted to help everyone to grow a collection like her own notorious CocaCola room.

Vickie was never wealthy, but she knew it was important to give what she could, even if it was just her time. She spent countless hours at nursing homes visiting with people she knew and others that would become new friends.

She loved children, especially her grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Even as her health deteriorated, she made the effort to send care packages and gifts. The people at the shipping store knew her by name.

As a member of the Church of Christ, Vickie always made time for church and those in her community. If the doors were open, she was there. She lived her life knowing that her time on earth was a temporary rest stop on her way to meet the Lord.

If you knew her, you knew Vickie was feisty, independent and resilient. She fought her way back after a cardiac arrest in 2006, and she fought through cancer despite an increasing number of ailments. Her spirit fights on.

Vickie is preceded in death by her father, Stephen Roger Griffith. She is survived by her mother, Emma Jean Griffith, daughter Haley Blount Taitano, son Luke and wife Nikki Blount and her grandchildren Naomi, Edie and Shepherd. She is also survived by three brothers and their wives: Mark and Teresia Griffith, Kevin and Michele Griffith and Kyle and Jennifer Griffith.
