Vicki Lynn Sisko, 71, of Miles City Mt.
June 20,1952 – November 13,2023
With profound sadness and a deep sense of loss, we announce the passing of Vicki Sisko, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt and friend, who left this world peacefully on November 13,2023 at the age of 71.
Born on June 20,1952 in Victorville California, Vicki was known for loving God and her family deeply, for her love of gospel music and anything from Daniel O’Day. She was also known for never backing down from anything she strongly believed in.
Vicki grew up a “military brat” which meant moving around a lot. Some of the places she got to live were Africa, Japan, Colorado and Oregon. It was while being in Japan that she had her first “run in” with her future husband when he knocked her down at the roller rink. She wouldn’t discover it was him until a few years later in Oregon, when she became friends with Cliff’s sister and was officially introduced. Once they had the opportunity to compare life stories, they quickly uncovered their previous connection.
Vicki and Cliff were married on July 18,1967 and were blessed with 56 years of marriage led by God as they faced life’s challenges and triumphs. Her love for Cliff and her family was unquestionable.
UP until her health would no longer allow it, Vicki dedicated her life to serving the Lord and her community. She was an active member of the Baptist church, where she led bible studies, arranged the song service, housed people in need, ran errands for shut ins, gave financially where she could, and offered words of encouragement whenever possible. Her faith was her guiding light, and she did her best to share her faith with as many as she could. Even when she was no longer able to get out of the house much, she found a way to offer spiritual encouragement to others by reaching out through text messages.
Vicki believed wholeheartedly in the power of prayer and the grace of salvation through Jesus Christ. Her legacy of faith, hope, and love will continue to live on in those she touched. She is greatly loved and will be temporarily missed… for we will see her again.
She is survived by her husband Clifford Frank Sisko Sr. Her children Mike Sisko (Carolynn Sisko), Carol Melton (Rob Melton), Joe Sisko (Faith Sisko) and Stephanie Whaley (Shane Whaley). Her Grandchildren Tyler, Chance, Bryce, Mason, Justin, Samantha (Tyler), Quincy, Aaron (Layne), Kylee (Lynn), Mary, Kelly, Brianna, and Kaiden. Her great grandchildren Roman, Luke, Ariel, Rhett, Maggie and Crew.
She was preceded in death by her parents Lorene and Bernard Keffer. Her brothers Frank and Tony Keffer and her sister Gloria Bigham. Her children Clifford Frank Sisko Jr. and Lorene Holtz, and her great grandchild Byron Melton.
A private family burial will take place at Eastern Montana State Veteran’s Cemetery. A memorial service will be planned at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations to help the family with medical bills would be exceedingly appreciated.
