Vickie Lee (Petterson) Buback

Vickie Lee (Petterson) Buback, 64, Excelsior Springs, MO, passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by her loving children.

One of five siblings in a military family, she has been around the world. Vickie was an Air Force Veteran. She proudly served her country in Turkey and stateside for several years. She has been an advocate and avid supporter ever since.

Vickie received her LPN from MCC and completed her BSN, to go on and have a successful career as a Registered Nurse. This also brought her to Haiti to do mission work, for she believed helping others was God’s Plan.

Vickie was also quite the fashionista! She loved music, dancing, life and helping all she could. She was selfless and will be missed dearly!

Vickie is survived by her three children, Alicia (Jason), Amanda, and Andrew (Angel); her 12 grandchildren, Andrew (Sharon), Samantha, Rebecca, Hannah, Nicholas, Amelia, Johnn, Jayse, Hayven, Logan, Elijah, and Paizley; four great-grandchildren, Krystal, Lyla, Ezra, and Maddox; her siblings, Valarie (Jim), Venita (Jeff), Vivian (Bill), Hank (Marsha); and a multitude of nieces, nephews, and cousins.

In remembrance of Vickie please turn on Kool & The Gang “Celebration” and have a dance party in her honor.

A memorial visitation will be held Friday, June 9, 2023 from 1 to 2 p.m. at Bross & Spidle Funeral Home, Excelsior Springs, MO. Vickie was born in Phoenix, AZ, to Glenn Arthur and Nancy Jo (Cooke) Petterson.

In lieu of flowers please donate to your local Veterans or Community Assistance Programs.

Our Sincere Condolences

Peace be with you cousin, although I did not know you that well, I knew your parents and loved them very much. Your mom was my second mother when my own wasn’t and if you are anything like her than your presence will be missed.

Prayers, hugs and love to all of our cousins during this saddened time. Heaven has gained another good soul.
Deborah & George Lothes

It was a pleasure knowing you online even though I wish I could have met you in person we both have a military background and I know you were a strong woman and I definitely know you did the best you could to fight covid. You’re in a better place now no more pain no more suffering and I just wanted you to know you will be missed and prayers for your family.
