Vickie Vaughn Patranella stepped from this earth into the arms of Jesus Feb. 27 at 11 p.m.

Vickie was born Dec. 22, 1951 and grew up in Bryan, where she attended Stephen F. Austin High School.

There she met Anthony Patranella and on June 17, 1972, Anthony married his high school sweetheart. In 2014 Vickie retired from Katy ISD after 30 plus years of service. Her father, C.T. Vaughn, and her mother, Virginia Vaughn Saunders, preceded Vickie in death.

She leaves behind her husband of 49 years, Anthony Patranella; children Steven Patranella and his wife Katie, her daughter Pamela Perrone and her fiancé James Conner, five beautiful grandchildren, Megan, Lauren, Paige, Jaxson, and Kristen.

Her brother John Vaughn and his wife Pat, along with many nieces and nephews, also survive her.

How does one describe the amazing human being that was Vickie Patranella?

She was unassuming, yet filled the room without being aware she was doing so.

Vickie needed no recognition, but was happy to be with the people she loved. Always the peacemaker, Vickie gently interjected her words of wisdom into a situation to bring peace. “Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called son’s of God” - Matthew 5:9.

God’s Word says laugh ter is good medicine, and Vickie was indeed good medicine. How completely blessed are those loved by Vickie! She demonstrated unconditional love in everything she did, such an amazing gift. Vickie’s absolute greatest joy in this life was giving to her children and grandchildren. May they always feel her heart surrounding them in love.

Service will be Sunday, Mar. 6 at 1 p.m. at Hiller Funeral Home, 2301 E 29th Street in Bryan.

Viewing Saturday, Mar. 5 from 5 – 8 p.m. at the funeral home.

Burial will follow in Bryan Cemetery.
