Vicki Marple Obituary

SALEM - Vicki Marple, 73, Passed away Sunday morning, October 22, 2023, at her home in Salem, Ohio, from an ongoing battle with an undetermined illness.

Vicki was born on June 2, 1950, in Decator, IN the daughter of Burl (Bud) and Ellafaye (Faye) (Ogg) Gibson, and came to the area as a child.

Vicki was a 1968 graduate of West Branch High School, frequently attending reunions, and worked at the Salem Area Visiting Nurse Association as a Visiting Home Health Aide, retiring in 2015 after more than 30 years of serving others.

She worked during the seventies and early eighties as a meat cutter at the A&P meat processing plant in Salem. Vicki was a CPR Instructor for 25 years, and she collected donations for the Cancer Society and Red Cross. She was the sole maintenance and cleaning custodian for the Salem Plaza since 1978; a 365 day per year job for 45 years.

Her tireless work ethic and attention to responsibilities were second to none and were passed on to her kids.

Her interests included sharing trivia questions, watching Christmas movies, making homemade fudge, listening to Rock & Roll (especially Elvis) and shopping for sales. She was a member of North Benton Presbyterian Church for many years. She thoroughly enjoyed being a mom, Grandma, and Nana; and will be dearly missed and memories cherished.

Vicki leaves two children, Michael Marple and his wife, Marcia of Houston, TX and Traci Hays and her husband, Tom of Salem; six grandchildren, Tracy (Ralph) Montgomery of TX, Jessica (Arthur) Waltersdorf of TX, Corey (Jayme) Mountz-Marple of NY, Tyler (Sierra Cannon) Brooks of Salem, Hanna Brooks of Salem and Tommy Hays of Salem; eight great-grandchildren with one on the way, as well as one brother, Steve Gibson and his wife, Jane of Canfield.

Vicki was preceded in death by her parents, Burl (Bud) and Ellafaye (Faye) Gibson.
