Vickie Lynn Simmons, 65, of Owensboro, passed away Sunday, May 3, 2020, at her home after a long battle with lung cancer. She was born Nov. 28, 1954, in Owensboro, to the late Miles and Madgie Kirkendoll Simmons. Vickie started work as a nurse's assistant before retiring from working as a switchboard operator for 40-plus years at the hospital here in Owensboro. She had made many close friends there that she stayed in touch with after retirement. Vickie was a tomboy, she enjoyed playing softball and riding motorcycles for many years. She was always known to be a jokester and loved to laugh and cut up with everyone. Vickie's greatest passion though was her family and spending quality time with them.
