Vicki Stephens, age 66, peacefully passed away February 11, 2020 in her home surrounded by her loved ones. She is leaving behind her best friend and husband, Ronnie Stephens. She was preceded in death by her parents Doris and Dr. G.W. Willingham as well as her brother Mark Willingham.

She is also survived by her three children Michael and wife MJ Stephens, Angela and husband Andres Lalinde, Eric and wife Kari Stephens, her six grandchildren, three great grandchildren, many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Vicki had a huge heart which was evident in her over thirty years of passion for teaching children in the public and private school communities. Her journey ranged from Garrison, Nacogdoches, Rapid Advancement Program, Broaddus, and her favorite stop, Martinsville. Vicki’s greatest joys and major part of her life was watching her children excel in sports, grow into successful adults and succeed in life.
Vicki can best be described as an intelligent, kind, giving, free-spirited, and selfless woman who was an amazing daughter, sister, wife, mother, and friend.
The family would like to give a special thanks to Lexington Place Nursing Home, Choice Hospice, A Pineywoods Home Health Care, and all the doctors, nurses and caregivers who tended to Vicki during this very difficult time.
A Celebration of Life service will be held at 2:00 p.m. Monday, February 17, 2020, at McKnight Cemetery in Cushing officiated by Pastor Billy Bledsoe.
