Victoria Marguerite Woodward

She previously lived in South Carolina, where she spent many wonderful years, prior to moving to Florida. 

Vickie enjoyed gardening, reading, shopping, doing her nails and taking care of her children. She relished everything flowers, Disney, and gathering with her friends and family. Going to the beach and collecting seashells was a reverenced pastime and she truly cherished the season of Christmas.
