Vickie Lane Ray, 68, of Madisonville, KY, passed away on Sunday May 21, 2023 at her residence.

She was born July 2, 1954 in Owensboro, KY to the late Bobby Alvey and Lavern Ford Alvey. She was also preceded in death by her husband, William C. Ray Jr.

Vickie took care of the Nursery at the church for over 47 years. She loved to decorate and read, but most of all loved her family and grandchildren. Shwe was the Cornerstone of this family. Her goal was to be the best Grammy in the whole world and she was to us.
