Vicki was born in Dennison, TX on February 21, 1963 to Donald Sr. and Nettie (Kissinger) Putman and passed away at her home in Dexter on November 9, 2018, surrounded by family and friends. After graduating she received her BSN in nursing from NMJC and was employed as a school nurse. She enjoyed traveling, camping, scrapbooking and rearranging furniture. One of her favorite things was getting a Sonic Route 44 diet coke and enjoying the grandkids. Vicki had a passion for helping others and helping make good memories for them. She was the epitome of a loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She loved the Lord and was a member of Tabernacle Baptist Church in Roswell. Bible studies and just being a servant of God were important to her as a Christian. She married James Ragland on May 15, 2010 in Lovington and they joined their two families and became one. She will be greatly missed by all who loved her.
