Vicki Gail Erickson Noland
3/11/1955 - 7/26/2022

Vicki Gail Erickson Noland, formerly of Cash and lately of Rockwall, passed away peacefully on the evening of July 26, 2022 with beloved and devoted family at her side.  Vicki was born March 11, 1955 in Greenville, TX to W.E. ďBoĒ and Wanda (Thompson) Quattlebaum, both of whom preceded her in death along with her first husband of over 35 years, Gary Erickson, who passed in 2009.  Vicki was also preceded in death by her second husband, Daniel Noland.

Growing up in Quinlan and experiencing true small town life, Vickiís friendliness and unique personality ensured her to have many friendships, several of which began in the 1st grade and  continued until her passing. At a young age, Vicki trusted in the Lord and joined the First Baptist Church of Quinlan where she remained a member for over 50 years.    Upon meeting Vicki, folks were hard pressed to say what they noticed first: her bright, intelligent and beautiful blue eyes or her shining smile as she welcomed you to a long visit filled with funny conversations and witty observations! She had a definite way of making you know exactly where she stood on a subject while, at the same time, making sure that you felt special and appreciated. Vicki was definitely a people person and she worked as a food server for many years where her special brand of humor kept customers asking for her every time they came to the restaurant.   Later, she worked at Quinlan ISD and Raytheon where, again, Vicki made sure that her responsibilities were carried out fully and completely, all the while helping her colleagues and other co-workers be the best they could be. The occupation she loved the absolute most was being a devoted (and always fun!) wife, mom and, later, beloved Nana to the treasures of her life, her three grandsons, each of whom she fiercely loved.  While being a devoted Nana was the pinnacle of her life, Vicki will always be known for loving her family with unquestionable loyalty throughout her life.  A beautiful woman who, when she entered the room, was always the life of a party, Vicki will be greatly missed and always cherished.

She is survived by her son, Jason Erickson and wife, Elizabeth, of Allen; grandsons: Wyatt, Cade and Jack Erickson of Allen; father, Charlie Thompson of Quinlan; sister, Sharon Royal and husband, Donald, of Union Valley; brother, Charles Thompson and wife, Shari of Rockwall; nieces and nephews: Justin Royal and wife Jessica, Chris Royal, Jamie Royal, Connor Thompson and Rayce Thompson as well as many other extended family and a host of friends.

Special thanks to Ultimate Plus Hospice for exceptionally gentle and loving care of Vicki; specifically, Lucretia Lara, Fortune Ubani and Rachel Beggs.  Also, thanks to her wonderful friend and companion aide, Stephanie Sedina of SeniorHelpers, all of whom made Vickiís life brighter and filled with love.

A celebration of Vickiís life will be at 2:00pm, Monday, Aug. 1, 2022 at Coker-Mathews Funeral Chapel.  A private interment will be at Dallas/Ft. Worth National Cemetery where she will be laid to rest with Gary. For those wishing, contributions in honor of Vickiís brave battle with Parkinsonís Disease can be made to the Michael J. Fox Foundation at www.michaeljfox.org
