Dear Dodds Family. This online tribute by Tamara De La Vega only scratches the surface of what kind of person she was to her friends and community, and how much we will miss her. Though incomparable to your family’s loss so many share, in part, your grief. It is my hope you will find a feeling of support in this.Again, my deepest sympathies, Col http://doppleronline.ca/huntsville/farewell-vicki-dodds-you-will-be-missed/

Mr. Dodds and family, I am so very shocked and saddened to hear that Mrs. Vicki Dodds has passed from this life, yet I am so grateful for the times I had with her. As a former student of St. Dominic Catholic Secondary School, I had the honour of having some wonderful conversations with Vicki, and in more recent years, chatting with her after Mass. I am grateful to God for blessing us with Vicki and her dedication in working closely with our Catholic education and with her work outside of school, including literature and the arts.
On behalf of my family, I would like to offer my most heartfelt condolences, and please be assured that she and you will be remembered in my prayers.
May Our dearest Lady, Mary sing the soul of Vicki to the bosom of Christ Jesus, there to remain in eternal peace. +

I have many kind and loving thoughts of having met Vicki Dodds. St Marys School in Huntsville at Book Fairs Vicki was always suggesting great books for my three children. They still have many of them today 28 years later. Vicki was a very kind person who seemed to know how to comfort those struggling during difficult times with just a touch of her hand.

You all are in our thoughts and prayer’s.
God Bless, Bob and Pat and family.
I am so very sorry to learn of Vicki’s passing. I worked with her at the Queensville Public Library many years ago in the 80’s. We became good friends during our working relationship and then lost touch. How very sad to hear this news. She was a lovely lady. My sincere condolences to her entire family.
I read that you had gone to be with your Dad Vicki but I still cannot believe it. We had so many great times at Beverley and later Downsview and you were so very happy when you and Ted became a couple. We have not seen each other for years but spent many hours talking on the phone and I was glad to have been there for you in the tough times. You are a vibrant special person to so many. You will be so missed by so many. Love you my “KB”” always. “
I had the honor of meeting Vicki when I accompanie the residents of New Leaf to Vicki and Ted’s cottage/home on Lake of Bays on several “getaways””. Her empathy

We were shocked and saddened to hear about Vicki. She recently attended a cousins reunion in Toronto. It was wonderful to see her and Ted and hear about their plans. It is a loss for all of us and we send our deepest sympathy to Ted, the four sons and their families. She will be missed.
My deepest heartfelt condolences to your family. Vicki was a very bright light in my life and I will miss her beyond what words can express. She was an incredibly special person with a seemingly unlimited capacity to give, nurture, support, and encourage. We tackled many a project together and I can account that their successes would not have been accomplished without her. She has left a great impression on my life. It am privileged to hold such great memories of her.
