Vicki A Barnard-Wilkins of Longmont, Colorado was born to Ray Barnard and Eleanor Stuchel-Barnard in 1957. She went to Heaven on July 3, 2018. She fought a long hard battle with cancer. She worked for the US Postal Service most of her life and retired to be close to family in Colorado. She inspired many co-workers, friends, and family along the way with her toughness, optimism, and grace. Vicki loved the mountains, spending time with her family and her dogs DeDe and Punkin. She is very musical and has the voice of an angel.
She is survived by three sons Jacob Hogrefe of Loveland CO, Joshua Hogrefe and wife Carrie of Firth NE, Gabriel Hogrefe and fiancé Nicole Soos of Loveland CO, and partner/caretaker John Sherwood of Longmont, CO. She was blessed with many grandchildren: Aston, Avery, Shelbi, Hailey, Jenna, LillyAnn, Isaac, Olivia, Mattison, Jasper, Marissa, and Atreyu. Her siblings are Diana Jones (Doug) of Portland OR, David Barnard (Deb) of Boise, Doug Barnard (Joy) of Molalla OR, Jeff Barnard (Kim) of Lincoln NE, Steve Barnard of Lincoln NE, and Duane “Snick” Glover of Portland OR.
By her request, we celebrated her life with family and her many friends as she entered Hospice care.
