God saw she was getting tired and a cure was not to be. So he put his arms around her and whispered, "Come with Me." With tearful eyes we watched her suffer and saw her fade away. Although we loved her dearly, we could not make her stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best.
This memorial website was created to remember our dearest Vicky Lee Slaughter who was born in Parkersburg, WV on October 2, 1950 and passed away on September 5, 2007. You will live forever in our memories and hearts.
Vicky left her earthly body behind on Wednesday, September 5, 2007,at City Hospital in Martinsburg, West Virginia. She was the daughter of Robert Troy and the late, Rita Grueser Troy.

Vicky is buried at Heavner Cemetery in Buckhannon, WV, though her true self, which lives on, is likely dancing, walking on a beach, looking with pride over her beloved children and grandchildren or catching up with her mother, grandparents or other loved ones.
