Vickie Manolis passed away on December 16, 2020, one week shy of her 99th birthday. She was lovingly called “Thea” by three generations of family, as well as friends and extended family. Cherished aunt of Laurie (Joe) Dakis, Elaine (late Angelo) Buscaglia, William (Cathy) Tarant, Doreen (Brad) DeSent, Christine (James) Trammel, Deb (late Bill Corliss), Maria Carter and Robert (Allison) Kirby. Devoted grand-aunt of Steffanie Dakis Danby, George Dakis, Nick (Alexandria) Tarant, Diana (Gavin) Schmidt, Allison (Alvaro) Lima, Kristin (Kyle) Ryan, Ashley Kirby, Carrie (Matt) Moody, Tom Lizarraga, Michael Lizarraga, Ryan Kirby and Jordan (Tanji) Corliss. Dear great grand-aunt of Kaylee, Jack, Alexa, Joey, Chase, Logan, Cora, Grace, Zoe, Tyler, Attikus, Gianna, William, Reece, Alex and Eleni. Predeceased by her parents William and Dorothy Manolis; and by her siblings and their spouses: Julie (Nick) Tarant, Tom (Carrie) Manolis and Patricia (Richard) Kirby.
Vickie was the beloved center of the family, remembering every birthday and taking great delight in welcoming each new little one. She was the first to offer help or support when anyone needed it. A woman of strong faith, Vickie often volunteered at church until mobility issues in her later years made it difficult. An avid reader, she mastered using the computer for email, Facebook and games in her late 90s (with some family tech support!)
