Memorials: Directed to the family

Vicki Lynn Boettcher was born March 25, 1956, to Eugene and Viola (Hawkins) Boettcher. She was one of four children. Prior to her retirement, Vicki worked for Oriental Trading Company and Hy-Vee in Omaha. Vicki and Jerry "JD" Kelly started their lives together in Omaha, NE but have made Glenwood their home since 2007.

Vicki enjoyed working on jigsaw puzzles, word searches, crossword puzzles and knitting in her free time. It was a given that the kids and grandkids could always count on receiving handmade knitted gifts from Vicki. In her younger years she enjoyed dancing and going on cruises. Vicki was a hard worker. In addition to her full-time job and other activities, she spent countless hours working side by side with Jerry in JD's BBQ Food Trailer and traveling to many venues. Vicki also loved animals. At one point she and Jerry were caring for a small zoo. They had two cats, two dogs and a bird. Vicki always had room for one more pet!

Vicki is survived and lovingly remembered by her husband, Jerry "JD" Kelly of Glenwood, IA; step-children, Tammy (Jay) Urquhart of Cedar Rapids, IA and their children, Jeremy, Kristen and Kelsey; Amy (Dustin) Swagel of Red Oak, IA, and their children, Brenna Oakleaf (Dustin Crouse), Treighton Oakleaf, Reaghan Oakleaf, Gus Swagel and Madi Swagel; Doug (Katie) Kelly of Griswold, IA and their children, Evan, Erin and Miley; Kevin (Samantha) Kelly of Rollins, WY and their children, McKenzie and Macie; brother, Bill Boettcher of Omaha, NE; sister, Kay Allensworth of Omaha, NE; nephew and niece; other relatives and a host of many special friends.

Sorry I couldn’t be there today to say goodbye. I will always remember your wonderful smile and how special you made me feel when we saw each other. The last time we spoke we talked about sunsets, so I will look for your smile in the sunsets.

Vicki was generous, and trusting, in her younger days i we stayed close throughout her time on earth and we have lost a best friend, a great aunt, a wonderful sister, and a a caring daughter, and a true gem I will miss her and refuse to think of her last days, but the vicki i grew up with that somehow disappeared years ago RIP vick i will remember your story you think i had to know in the end forever in our hearts, and at peace at last
