She is survived by her loving husband, David, her two children, Jessica Zeeck and Jacob Quane, and her six beautiful grandchildren, Tyler (12), Ellyn (8), Claire (7), Owen (6), Charley (5) and Annabelle (2). She was born on April 15, 1957, in Woburn, Massachusetts, to her parents Joseph and Irene Polywacz.  Eventually she and her family moved to Round Lake Beach where she met David.  The two of them got married on July 22, 1978. She began working as a nurse and they settled in Wonder Lake to raise their family. Eventually Dave and Vickie moved to Batavia to raise their family, which has been their home for 31 years.

Vickie was an ICU nurse at Mercy Hospital in Aurora for 25 years.

She also volunteered at Michealsen Health Center in Batavia and at the St. Vincent DePaul Déjà vu Thrift Store in Geneva. Vickie was also an avid runner, often seen running through town or on the Fox River Trail. She has completed multiple marathons and dozens of half marathons.

Vickie was a devout Catholic and an active member at Holy Cross Catholic Church in Batavia.

Guest Book

  • Janeen Christensen I met Vickie when she volunteered with Holy Cross' Enriching Lives Ministry, helping me every Thursday with garbage, medication, and other household chores. She went out of her way to help me, even staying the night if needed. I can feel the loss of this truly kind, generous and compassionate soul, the difference in the world which held her for a time, and from which she has gone to be with God the Father. The world feels different without her loving soul, and I look forward to seeing her again, if I should be so blessed. Good Bye for now, loving friend.
  • Cheryl My heart goes out to the family! When the dreaded news of the loss of a loved one is received after a battle with an illness it is extremely difficult. On one hand we may long to be with them, but on the other hand we hate to see them suffer. God knows the pain we experience when we lose our dear loved ones. He even views death as an enemy! (1 Corinthians 15:26) God will soon eliminate this enemy, and no one will have to deal with the pain it brings. May this hope bring the family comfort during this difficult time.
