Victoria L. Anderson, 56, passed away Sunday, January 26, 2020, at her home surrounded by her family.

She was born on June 15, 1963, in Mildenhall Air Force Base, England. She was raised in Sumter, SC by her parents; Robert and Sylvia (Johnson) Shorts, with her four siblings. Vicki enlisted into U.S. Navy soon after her graduation from high school. She met John while attending Navy Hospital Corps School in Great Lakes, Illinois and was married on April 30, 1982. Honorably discharged, she remained faithful to her country by serving 18 additional years as, what she would call “the toughest job in the Navy”, a Military wife. Finally settling down in Kenosha in 1992.

Vicki's faith in Jesus Christ was vital in her daily walk in this world. The Christian values, which she held firmly to the last, guided her every thought and desire. She was active in her church, Missio Dei Fellowship, serving in various capacities for over 25 years. She also took part in a women’s ministry called Bible Study Fellowship; faithfully studying the Bible, seeking ways to share what she believed and teaching children for over 20 years. The overarching constant throughout her life, the source that truly ordered each area of her life, was Jesus Christ.

Survivors include her husband of 37 years, John; her children, Joshua (Kristi) Anderson of Lombard, IL, and Christine (Daniel) Ballewske of Kenosha, WI: siblings, Annie Shorts, Patty (Larry) Langley, and Mickey (Alice) Shorts; grandchildren, Titus, AnnaBelle, Eleanor, Nadine, Theo, and Sam; and many nieces and nephews and a very special mother-in-law, Nancy J. Anderson.

In addition to her parents, Vicki was preceded in death by a brother, Bruce Shorts; a sister, Bobbie Shorts; and grandchild, Gabriel.

Visitation will be held from 9:00 a.m-11:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 1, 2020, at Proko Funeral Home. Funeral Services, with full military honors, will commence at 11:00 a.m. Interment will be private at Sunset Ridge Memorial Park, Kenosha, WI. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to a family memorial.

I am so sorry to hear of Vicky's passing. She was in my BSF class and had brought me so much encouragement with her faith. For the short time I knew her, she always brought a smile to my heart. I saw her at the beginning of this year and just smiled seeing how wonderful she looked. It is heartbreaking to lose her, but I know she is being held now in God's arms and for that I am so happy for her and excited to meet her again. Rest in Peace Vicky. Thank you for all you brought to my life in the short time God brought us together here on earth.

God bless Vicki......she was such a sweetheart!
Her dad and my mom were brother and sister. So, growing up our family always made it a point to visit Vicki’s family at least once a year, either going to S.C. or her family coming to Ohio. We always had a good time and although our lives took different paths when we got older, her, serving our country and me marrying and moving to Fla. we were able to stay connected through social media and able to share our lives.
When Vicki became sick 2 yrs ago I knew that no matter where her cancer journey took her she would be ok because of her faith in Christ. When she went into remission I was so happy for her. Then when I got the news that the cancer was back, I prayed she’d come through it again, but I thought, if she didn’t, I knew her life and future was secure in Christ. And as God would have it, He had other plans this time and although none of us were ready to let her go I knew she was ready. She certainly taught a lot of us how to live out our faith in Christ in the face of unbeatable odds and now.....she has lite up Heaven with her magnificent smile and I will look forward to the day when I’ll see her again.....but until then...
God Speed You Ol Honey ....Rest In Heavenly Peace.....We Love You And Will Miss You!!
❤️Your cousin Rhonda,Fred and family
