Vickie Enkoff

I was heartbroken last week to hear of the passing of Vickie Enkoff. I never had the pleasure of meeting her in person, but I did meet her lovely and talented daughters in Vancouver several years ago.

Vickie was, without doubt, a wonderful person. She encouraged many of us in so many ways. Although she suffered from debilitating illnesses, you would not have known that unless she told you. Vickie accomplished so much and interacted with so many other artists in the online communities, you never knew where she would pop up!

It was Vickie who pressed my rubber stamp line for years (okay, Jennifer, it was probably you doing the physical work! Thanks!) and really encouraged me to continue. It was Vickie who placed the first order when I set up my PayPal shopping cart and needed someone to test drive it.

I will miss hearing her "voice" online. We've lost one of this world's lovely people.

It was my honour to have been able to know her.
