Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Vicky Sue Shrader passed from this life to the next on September 12, 2018, after a brave battle with COPD and cancer. She was celebrated into heaven, surrounded by family and her beloved dog at her side.
Vicky was born March 31, 1946 in Winfield, Kansas to Donald Roy and Margie Earline (Miller) Naden. She spent most of her childhood in Newton, Kansas, where she graduated from high school. Following high school, she moved to Emporia, Kansas where she met and married her one true love, Charles Alton Eakins. They were blessed with three children.
Vicky and Charlie later moved to Salina, Kansas where Vicky worked and retired from the Saline County Sherriff’s Department. She enjoyed spending time with her family, especially gathered around the table with food she prepared in love. She liked to read and work daily crossword puzzles. And she considered every dog her friend.
Vicky will be greatly missed by her children, Jennifer (Craig) Ostrander, Charles “Tony” (Shakira) Eakins, and Erin (Doug) Stein; her grandchildren, Hannah and Hans Ostrander, Elisha, Nicholas, Gabe (Scott), Alex, Charlee and Allie Eakins, and Reagan and Zachary Stein; her sisters, Donna (Doyle) Orrell, Jackie (Glen) Rumsey, and Jenny (Patrick) Buss; and many nieces and nephews.
A private celebration of Vicky’s life will be held at a later date.
The family would like to express their deepest gratitude for the nursing and pastoral staff at Serenity Care Hospice for their loving and tender care of their dear mother.
