Vicky Lynn Hults, 58, of Ottumwa, died December 9th, 2017, at her home in Ottumwa Iowa, following a prolonged illness. As per Vicky's wishes her body will be cremated and no funeral services will be performed. Her remains will be scattered by her family in a private observation, also at a later date.
Vicky was born October 26, 1959 to Walter Glenn and Lavina (Micki) Deevers in Ottumwa, graduated from Eddyville High School in 1978. She was united into marriage to Gary Allen Hults where two children were born unto this union; a son Lawrence the Second of Ottumwa, and a daughter Latosca of Colorado. Although the marriage later dissolved they remained the closest of friends.
Vicky began her adult working life as a graphic artist for Edwards Publications in Knoxville managing as many as five different newspapers and special sections simultaneously. During her remaining years she enjoyed working where she was often found to "serve the underserved" always going the extra mile to meet her client's needs. She especially loved working with the youth, and concluded her career working with both the Iowa State University Extension Service, and with a local domestic violence shelter. She never forgot a name or face and will be missed by many. As her illness progressed and she was forced to leave the workforce, she loved to spend time out-of-doors, following the Iowa HAWKEYES football team, reading and writing, listening to the blues and just being around all types of people.
She is survived by her mother; Lavina Deevers of Ottumwa; a son, Lawrence of Ottumwa; a daughter, Latosca Hults; a grand-daughter, Victoria Jones and grandson, Devin Jones all of Colorado; her brother; Stuart Deevers also of Colorado, and a sister, Dorinda (Harold) Woods; niece, Bethany Woods and nephew, Dylan Woods all of Indiana.
She was preceded in death by her fraternal and maternal grandparents, her father and a sister, Roxanna Marie Hicks.
Her family and friends will gather in remembrance of her life at a time later to be determined.
In lieu of flowers, a memorial has been established to the family in care of Lawrence Hults II.
