Victoria Hermus (1954 – 2015)
Victoria “Vicki” E. Hermus, Age 61 of Kimberly, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Monday, September 7th, after a courageous battle with a rare illness (Wegener's Disease). Vicki was born in Appleton, Wisconsin on June 8th, 1954. She grew up in Kimberly and graduated from Kimberly High School in 1972. Vicki spent the majority of her life raising her children and caring for the children of others.
Vicki loved her family more than anything in the world. The greatest gift she gave to everyone was her unconditional love and support. There was never a time you walked away from her without knowing you were truly loved and cared for. Anyone who was lucky enough to know her will always remember her for her generosity and kindness.
Vicki was an amazing cook and she loved to travel with her husband. They especially enjoyed their many trips to Hawaii.
