About Vicky

Vicky was born in Stockton-On-Tees, Cleveland on the 21st September 1979 to Deborah and Anthony Glass. She was the younger sister of Claire, who was one year older.

 

When Vicky was six years old, Deborah remarried to Colin Goodall and Vicky lived with them throughout her childhood.  She also had an older step sister Cheryl and younger brother Thomas. 

Vicky went to Blakeston Secondary School in Stockton-on-Tees and had a keen interest in sports and running. She worked hard throughout her education and achieved 5 GSCE's, before securing a job at the Sweet and Savoury factory in Teesside.

 

Between the ages of 13-18 Vicky’s main hobby and real passion in life was playing in the Kiora Hall Jazz Band. She loved being a part of the band and travelling with them, and was always so proud to perform and entertain the crowds.

 

In her younger years, some may have considered Vicky quiet and somewhat timid, however around close family and friends she was described as very bubbly, with a heart of gold and such a caring personality.

Vicky was a big Michael Jackson fan and loved listening to his music. Her favourite pet was a wild rescue cat called Sooty, who she tamed and cared for. Her passion for animals and music extended to her love for the musical ‘Cats’, which she would watch at every given opportunity.

 

Vicky looked young for her age. As she grew older so did her confidence, and she often enjoyed socialising.

 

Vicky will always be much loved by her family and friends. She will be forever missed by all of those fortunate enough to have met her. 

 

Although no longer here, Vicky is still is a daughter, a sister, a niece, an auntie and a granddaughter whose grandparents outlived her.
