Vicki Anderson, 63, Loveland, Colo.: July 3, 1957 – Nov. 30, 2020

LOVELAND, Colo. – Vicki Anderson, 63, of Loveland, Colo., passed away at her home Nov. 30, 2020. She was surrounded by her loved ones and as the sun rose, she left us.

Vicki is survived by her husband, Dick Anderson, of 41 years; three sons, Mark, Kirk and Alex Anderson; three grandsons, Andy, Otto and Kaylor; her parents, Jim and Ellen Wischropp; three siblings, Kevin (Peggy) Wischropp, Becky (Bob) Brown and Melody (David) Brecheisen; her father and mother-in-law, Carl and Bonnie Anderson; and many nieces and nephews.

Vicki grew up in Lyndon, Kan., graduating from Lyndon High School in 1975. She moved to Colorado to join her husband after college. She lived the last 30 years of her life on their beautiful property next to Buckhorn Creek outside of Loveland. Her home was filled with music, good food and lots of love.

She graduated with a BS from Kansas State University, where she met her husband. She had Wildcat pride throughout her life and followed K-State Basketball and Football with enthusiasm.

Vicki was a master seamstress and craftswoman, who never met a sewing pattern she couldn’t master. She was always quick to sit down at her sewing machine or grab a glue gun and create everything from clothing to custom home decorations. She often crocheted blankets for friends’ newborn babies.

She loved to ride tandem bicycles, completing the Bike Across Kansas Ride six times with her husband and sons. She loved bluegrass and folk music and spent many September days at the Walnut Valley Music Festival, in Winfield, Kan.

Vicki enjoyed clog dancing, Zumba classes, and camping in the outdoors. She loved to camp at Hermit Park with her family, and in later years she treasured the RV trips out west to visit her sons and grandchildren in California.

Faith was a pillar of Vicki’s life. She taught Sunday school at Mountain View Presbyterian, was a member of Crossroads Church, in Loveland, and completed several Bible study fellowship sessions in Fort Collins.

After their sons were raised, Vicki began a successful career in electronics manufacturing. She worked in manufacturing procurement and office management.

Vicki was in treatment for ocular melanoma, a rare cancer, for two years. The cancer quickly spread, and she had the foresight to help plan for her family’s future without her. She will be remembered for her grace, positive attitude, and loving, generous heart.

A celebration of Vicki’s life will be 1-6 p.m. Wednesday, June 23, at Southwind Shelter House at Pomona State Park, Vassar, Kan.; friends and family are all welcome. A celebration of life will be held at her home in Loveland at a later date. See www.viegutfuneralhome.com.
