Vicki was born on July 31, 1938 to Talmadge "Crip" Cole and Orilla Mae Aldridge Cole in Wichita, KS. She was raised in California before returning to Wichita, KS during her teenage years. Vicki married Maurice D. Meador in 1955 in Wichita, KS, then moved to Braman in 1969. Their marriage flourished with the addition of three children. In 1982, Maurice passed away. In 1985, while out to go dancing, Vicki met Gene Smith from Shidler. Their feelings for each other were keen and strong, as their medical backgrounds and razor sharp wit drew them towards each other. They were married in 1985 and have celebrated 33 years of marriage. Vicki worked as a respiratory technician for the Blackwell Hospital and later the Ponca City Hospital, taking great care of her patients, getting to know them well before they were treated. Ever the giver, Vicki went to great lengths to look after others, especially her family, and was exceedingly proud of her grandchildren. Always a lady, classy, independent, loving, as well as being a diligent worker were attributes Vicki exemplified. While she was always interested in helping others, Vicki was also quick to speak her mind and let others know exactly how she felt about things. She will be missed greatly by those who knew and loved her.

Survivors include her adoring husband Gene of Shidler, children: Dean Meador and wife Sandy of Ponca City, Cristy Reneau and husband Ivan of Braman, OK,, Tammy Brantley of Blackwell, Kelly Smith-Troutman of Blackwell, and James Boyd Smith and wife Susy of Blackwell, OK; grandchildren: Neal and Denise Head, Kasie Head, Jayme and Kyle Wolfe, Justin and Anne Head, Jennifer and Tony Hamilton, Brad and Lauren Meador, Deana and Ryan Reid, Chip and Jordan Meador, Mary Beth and Jason Hunt, Kelly and Tim Singleton, Samantha Hallman, Lance and Brittany Hallman, Andrea any Heath Thompkins, Tyler and Krista Smith, Taylor Smith, Samantha Smith, Tanner Smith, Sarah Smith, Cady Smith, Marcus and Cheyanne Kincaid, Dustin and Autumn Kincaid, Cole Brantley

Vicki was preceded in death by her parents, husband Maurice, brother Sam Cole, daughter Kim Head, son in law Travis Holmes, as well as her great grandsons Larric Preston Wolfe and Michael Dean Meador.
