Obituary of Vicki Diana Ricker
Vicki Diana Ricker, 70, wife of Kenneth D. Stringer, passed away Wednesday, June 23, 2021, at Tidelands Georgetown Memorial Hospital.
Born on July 29, 1950, in Joplin, MO, she was a daughter of the late Lonnie Steele and the late Beverly Allen Steele. Mrs. Ricker was a member of Ringel Heights Baptist Church and the Sonshine Sunday school class. She had a great love for helping others, and spent countless hours ministering to children she would never meet through Operation Christmas Child. As an adventurer and motorcycle enthusiast, she found friendship and fellowship as a member of the Swamp Fox Fellowship Riders, where she served as secretary. Mrs. Ricker was a crafty individual that loved every holiday season, and had decorations for each of them. Along with her love for helping others, motorcycles and holidays, she enjoyed cooking, traveling, playing on the computer and most of all spending time with her family. Mrs. Ricker was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and sister, and her contagious smile and laughter will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
Survivors include her husband of Andrews; two daughters, Tammy Ricker-Jackway of Dorchester and Christy Fleming (Michael) of Oakland, NJ; one step daughter, Kennetha Timms of Williamston; one step son, Kenneth L. Stringer (Karla) of Anderson; five grandchildren, Heather Ricker, Morgan Fleming, Jessica Shoope, Ayden Fleming and Kenny Jackway; one step grandchild, Ashley Craig; one great granddaughter, Aubrey Ricker; two step great grandchildren, Livi Jane Craig and Bowen Craig; two sisters, Cherry Sofge (Ron) of Reno, NV and Robin Lobello (Chuck) of Avondale, AZ; one brother, Ronnie Steele of CA; and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her first husband, Derwood Ricker; two brothers, Steven Steele and Larry Steele; and a son in law, Ken Jackway.
