Vicki Leffler is truly the best mother and Meme her daughters know. She has been there for them since day one, and she is as selfless as they come.
Whether she is dancing with her grandkids or getting pooped on by them, or whether she is traveling with her daughters, Jessica and Jasmyn, those two could not imagine life without their amazing mother Vicki.
“She’s the funniest person I know and one of the only people who truly gets me,” Jessica said. “She goes above and beyond when planning gatherings, vacations, parties, et cetera. She is so ‘extra’ in the best way. She is always putting others first and is very reliable. She would do anything for anyone. She’s compassionate, hysterical, dependable, empathetic and truly a gift to our family. We would be lost without her.”
Vicki loves to make memories with her family and to have fun with them, but more importantly, she loves to be there for them and make sure they are living their best lives. Vicki cares so much about her daughters and grandchildren, and that love and care has never wavered.
What has also never wavered is Vicki’s love for travel. She enjoys going out and about and seeing new places, as traveling is in her DNA.
“She is a traveler! She’s constantly making plans to go on new adventures and is extremely outgoing,” Jessica said. “She is always down for an adventure!”
Whether her friends or family are involved or whether it is a solo trip, Vicki certainly enjoys experiencing new cultures.
She also has a knack for making every moment memorable. Her family is very close-knit, and that is all thanks to Vicki’s family-first mentality.
“Christmas mornings. Those are some of my favorite memories,” Jessica said. “She makes the best breakfast casseroles and gets all the fancy dishes out. We are together so much, so it’s hard to pick one favorite memory! My favorite trip was when she took me and my sister to Civana in Arizona for my 40th birthday. It was a dream vacation. I also loved when we went to Puerto Rico! Alaska and both of our Disney trips will always be my favorites too.”
Being on those trips with their mother made it all worthwhile for Jessica and Jasmyn.
On top of being a world traveler and a great mother and Meme, Vicki is also caring toward everyone else all around her. She is a retired VA nurse and a current travel nurse, showing compassion day in and day out on the job.
“I admire how loving and nonjudgmental she is,” Jessica said. “She accepts everyone with open arms and is an advocate for others. I love how compassionate she is and how free-spirited she is. She lights up the room wherever she goes. She makes everyone laugh!”
Her love for life is contagious and apparent.
“You’re truly a blessing to our family. Your dedication to us and your constant and unconditional love has given us so much strength. Thank you for fostering the relationship you have with your grandkids and for showing me and Sis the importance of being there for each other. Your love for travel and seeing the world is so inspiring. Every time I see the moon, I think of you and how truly blessed I am to have a mom like you. #Memegoals” – Jessica & Jasmyn
