She was happily married to the love of her life, Ogbueshi Eng. Ofili Agili and they enjoyed the most loving union, which was a model of devotion and selflessness. Her children, Chuka, Ifeoma and Rotimi were her pride and joy. She dedicated her entire life to the happiness and nurture of her entire family. Grandma’s love and protection knew no bounds, she was physically present for the birth of each and every single one of her grandchildren and spent every available moment doting over Oluwafuntan (Akachukwu), Oluwafikunayomi (Chukwuzamepele) and Oluwafifemayomi (Chiweta) Finnih.

Vickie was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunty, friend, and model child of The Almighty. She was a virtuous woman who had a perpetual smile etched on her face to welcome; a regal gait and tone to govern; and the most selfless heart to love. Throughout her life, she exuded the majesty of one who understood her celestial calling ought to be manifested amongst mere mortals on earth – and that she did wholesomely. She lived a godly, vibrant, charitable, life – impacting family, friends and strangers with her warmth, love and generosity. Her love and passion for The Almighty ensured a lifetime of dedicated service to all. May her beautiful soul rest in perfect peace. Amen.
