Vicki Lee Stewart, 72, passed away at the Urbandale Health Care Center in Urbandale, Iowa, on June 11, 2022.

Vicki was born on August 24, 1949, in St. Joseph. Missouri, to William (Bill) and Lucille Pottorff. The family moved from Missouri to Iowa in 1956. Bill's work took the family to Leon, Corning, and then to Creston where they settled in Cromwell, a small community four miles outside of Creston.

Vicki graduated from Creston High School in 1967. After graduation Vicki took courses at Southwestern Community College in Creston, but soon turned to full-time work as an operator with the telephone company. Working with the telephone company Vicki moved to Ames and, eventually, to Des Moines. Vicki became a union steward and took pride in helping her fellow employees through her service.

Always outgoing, Vicki enjoyed live music and socializing with friends. Her interests came together when she managed Lil' Eva's, a bar in Perry, Iowa, for time in the early1980's.

After Vicki retired from the telephone company she worked at several part-time jobs. She especially enjoyed working as a proofreader for Parker Reporting, a court reporting service.

For many years Vicki was a member of Celebration Church in Des Moines, led by Pastors Randy and Betty Waterman. She often gave rides to others who attended the church. She sang in the choir and participated in the drama team who performed in skits and plays before the congregation.

Vicki was preceded in death by her father, Bill, her mother, Lucille, her stepmother, Genevieve, and her stepsister, Deanna Fry. She is survived by her sister, Julie Pottorff of Des Moines, her stepbrother, Marlin Carman of Perry, her maternal aunt, Shirley Punzo of St. Joseph, Missouri, and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
