In Memorium: Vicki McQuagge 1950-2011

A long time ago, in a land where we were all much younger, there were four women who met at Parents without Partners. We immediately became fast friends, and partyied, danced and played together with our sons (the four of us had 8 boys between us). As we aged, we drifted apart, but still stayed in touch. Two years ago, we lost the first Musketeer (we fancied ourselves the Four Musketeers!) Kathleen Woodward. This week we lost the second, Vicki McQuagge.
I looked and the only pictures that I have of Vicki are from a 1984 PwP photo album. Since this was pre-digital, the scan quality sucks, but the Vicki-ness comes through. Vicki always had a joke to tell and a smile on her face!

Vicki McQuagge was my cousin. She could always make you laugh and had a great personality. She is our angel, gone too soon but not forgotten. God Bless you all.
Love, Cathy Chesser

I met Vicki in 1983 and we had a party one night. Vicki would tell a joke and that would remind David of another joke, ad infinitum. The next day my jaws and my stomach muscles were SORE from laughing so much. She was unique.
