A smile as bright as a rainbow and a heart as big as the sky! Vicki Jo (Carroll) Harvey was born on September 4, 1942 in Hinton, OK and passed away on April 14, 2017 surrounded by her family at her home south of Hydro. Vicki was born to Gordan Carroll and Tots (Powell) Carroll. Vicki was raised by Gordon and Juanita (Garrett) Carroll . Vicki said Juanita was one of the best things that happened in her life. Vicki grew up in the Hinton area and attended and graduated from Hinton High School in 1960. On June 16, 1961 she married her high school sweetheart Jerry Ray Harvey in Hinton, OK and made their home at Sickles. In 1966 they built a house on the homeplace south of Hydro where Jerry farmed and raised cattle and Vicki lovingly worked beside Jerry and cared for and raised their greatest treasures in their life, their sons Todd and Scott. She was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother and put her whole heart and soul into caring for her family! Everyone that knew Vicki loved her and she loved them too!
Vicki loved to bowl and continued until a couple of years ago. She loved to cook, attend the kids and grandkids school events and especially loved her little Pleasant Valley Baptist church and her family there. She was especially proud of the young people that grew up in the church and loved the music that they always sang or played. Their music always touched her heart! One of her greatest enjoyments was making homemade ice cream for her family but mostly she just loved to eat it but did not really like to share it much!!!!
