Vicki (VanArtsdalen) Oliver



Vicki Oliver passed away on Tuesday, March 5, 2013, in the ever present comfort of her husband Jim. Vicki was born July 8, 1942, in San Jose, Calif., to Geary and Frances VanArtsdalen. On Dec. 6, 1958, she wed James T. Oliver and they were married 54 years.

Born to them in California were four sons: Geary (Lynette), Jim (Lavonne), Jon (Valerie) and Joe (Katrina). They made their home in many different areas of central coastal California before Vicki insisted on a change and they moved to Electric City in 1975.

She and Jim finished raising their sons in the coulee and then they were off to try new places, finally settling in Clarkston.

Wherever she was, she created a home you always wanted to come to, an impulsive plan you always wanted to be a part of (or at least hear about) and most of all a family you would be lucky to belong to.

Per her request, no services will be held but we will remember her as we live our lives and anyone who had the joy of hearing her laugh will never forget it.
