With great sorrow, the family of Sarah Victoria “Vicky” Anderson (Fults) announces her passing, at the age of 75, on Sunday, Oct. 1, 2017 at the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre in Thunder Bay, On.
Vicky was born on March 11, 1942 to Bert and Mabel Fults (Moore) of Miscampbell where she attended school and spent most of her childhood with her siblings on the family farm.
She was the youngest daughter and older sister of one brother of 12 siblings in total.
As a young adult, Vicky worked at various tourist camps and loved to share her many stories of these adventures.
She always loved children and spent a lot of time with her many nieces and nephews, and formed bonds that lasted throughout her life. She also was known as “Grandma Vicky” to many over the years.
She had a very kind and generous heart, a humorous nature, and her laughter was contagious.
She was a proud member of the Salvation Army Church for 38 years—a dedication was held in her honour by the church in 2014. But her passion was her family and friends, and especially her grandchildren. She never missed a Christmas concert, sporting event, graduation, or celebration in their honour.
Vicky loved playing cards, TV Bingo, painting, and her scratch-off tickets. She just recently had moved into Green Manor, where she quickly made new friends and enjoyed spending her time in the common room every day.
She was predeceased by her parents, Bert Visard and Mabel Rose Fults (Moore); brothers, Joseph Fults, Hubert Fults, and David Fults; and sisters, Effie Fults, Amy Nicholson, Luella Schottle, and Bonnie Pederson.
She is survived by her daughter, Geraldine, and son, Morris Anderson; two grandsons, Jory Anderson and Brennen Anderson; and granddaughter, Bryanna Dustin.
She also is survived by her sisters, Ether “Lucy” Fults, Jessie Bodnarchuck, and Betty Kuitunen; and brother, Don (Sharon) Fults.
A service will be held Thursday, Oct. 12, 2017 at 2 p.m. at the Royal Canadian Legion in Fort Frances, Ont., with Pastor Ryan MacDonald officiating.
The honourary pallbearers will be her grandchildren and her nieces and nephews, and the families of her dearly-departed friends, Mary Hubert and Mary Garon, as well as all her new-found friends from Rose and Green Manor.
A luncheon will follow the service at the Royal Canadian Legion.
Interment will take place at the Devlin Cemetery at a later date
