LIVE! A Tribute to Vicki Reneé Carroll, October 31, 1953 - July 12, 2019
LIVE! Life-long advice and the final instruction given to friends & family in the last words of Vicki Carroll.
An entrepreneur, a faithful friend, and a persistent contributor to the community, Vicki loved helping others and making people feel truly special. Perhaps you bought a jar of honey or experienced her unsolicited generosity.
Vicki taught us that if you don’t know an answer, you go & figure it out. “Explore” “What did you learn?”
Vicki always said that when things don’t go your way, it’s an opportunity to make a memory. She believed laughter can help us survive anything. There are many perspectives to be explored to hear and appreciate the story. Vicki believed anything is possible when we first love ourselves, have the courage to explore the unknown, and love others unconditionally.
Through her selflessness in helping others and truly enjoying every moment, Vicki LIVED. In her last words, she continued to give by reiterating the advice she actively embraced every day. LIVE! And we take solace in knowing that she is beginning a new and glorious journey to learn and explore in the house of the Lord with her loving parents, Stella and Chester Proffitt.
Vicki is survived by countless friends and family who love her & will continue to treasure her memory. Devoted husband of 39 years, Randy Carroll; sister, Kim Lehmenkuler; children, Scott (Angela) Mason & Rebecca Smith; grandchildren, Tyler Mason, Randi Carroll, & Bryce Smith; niece, Kelly (Jim) Lawrence & children, Courtney & Leah; many cousins including, Pam Smith, Rob Wilson & family, June Bernet & family, & the Cochran family, & many more. And of course, each of you who honor her memory & parting words to “LIVE!”
