Vickie Lynn (Buchecker) Kell

NEW WATERFORD — Vickie Lynn (Buchecker) Kell, 63, of New Waterford, passed away peacefully on Sunday, May 12, 2019 at Hospice House with her soulmate at her side.

She was born September 1, 1955 in Salem, Ohio a daughter of Velma J. (Dunn) Buchecker and the late John R. Buchecker.

Vickie worked at 4wd Hardware in Columbiana, for more than 20 years and she loved her work family dearly.

She enjoyed vacations to the lake, searching for beach glass, taking the same picture hundreds of times at Niagara Falls, and reading romance novels, but her greatest love was always her family.

Vickie is survived by her loving husband, Larry; their two daughters, Stacie and Mark McCurdy of New Waterford and Erin and Justin Pflueger of Freeport, Pa. She was also blessed with nine incredible grandchildren who were her whole world, Blaine, Kaiden, Chase, Evan, Lane, Jake, Reece, JJ, and Elizabeth. She is also survived by her mother, Velma Buchecker and step-father, Otto Sallaz of New Waterford; two sisters, Debbie (Bob) Shell and Teresa (Gary) Gidley and a brother Ron (Vicki) Buchecker, and all of her nieces and nephews.

At Vickie’s request, there will be no services. Memorial donations can be made in her name to Hospice of the Valley, 9803 Sharrott Road, Poland, OH 44514
