Vickie Lee Smith

Vickie Lee Smith

11/10/1952 — 2/2/2019

Vickie Lee Smith gained her angel wings Saturday, Feb. 2, 2019. Vickie was born Nov. 10, 1952, in Lewiston. Three months premature, she was one of the smallest babies in the country to survive.

Vickie’s small size and physical limitations proved to be small obstacles for her huge heart. At an early age, she attended the Idaho School for the Blind in Nampa, along with special education classes in Orofino.

Later in life, she attended adult learning classes at Lewis-Clark State College and for a time she operated a small snack shop called Vickie’s Munchie Haven in the Nez Perce County Courthouse. Her independent spirit and can-do attitude let her live a life that many never thought possible.

Vickie was preceded in death by her parents, Harvey and Burdena Smith; sister Marjean Russell; and nephew James Hussey. She is survived by her partner in life’s journey, Jay Thornley; Bill and Ellen Smith, Deb and Bruce Johnson, Butch and Teri Smith, Willie Russell; nephews Doug Russell and Tony Smith; and nieces Reva Monk, Dena Russell, Marie Liddiard, Danielle Hunt, Kim Kernin and Michelle Nick.

A celebration of life will take place in the spring.
