Born in Haverhill on October 10, 1956, she was one of ten children of the late George N. Yeo and the late Ruth P. (MacDonald) Yeo Brackett, and was a graduate of Pentucket Regional High School in West Newbury. Vicki, as she was loving known, worked as a bookkeeper.
She was an avid NASCAR and stock car racing fan, loved rabbits, always had a black dog, her latest was Sadie, and especially adored her two granddaughters - they were everything to her.

She was predeceased by two brothers, James L. Yeo, and George B. Yeo, and a sister, Ruth "Sandra" Huston.
Vicki will be remembered for her kindness, understanding, sincere devotion to family, love of life, and above all else her selflessness, always putting the needs of others before her own needs.
