Victoria A. Tyler

God came by on Sunday night and whispered in her ear and she accepted the call. She left this life from Adena Hospital in Chillicothe, Ohio on January 29, 2023.

Vickie was born and reared in Portsmouth, Ohio. She graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1980. She attended The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. She became gainfully employed with Rosemount School for Girls, United Methodist Children’s Home, and finally the State Department of Youth Services. She retired from DYS due to health reasons of which she had 25 years of service. After retirement she worked part-time as an assistant teacher for Catholic Social Services. It was obvious she wanted and did work with troubled youth. She was a hard worker and very compassionate to her fellow man. She would do anything for anybody. She had a heart of gold.

Vickie was baptized April 17, 1972 In Portsmouth, Ohio by the late Bishop Q.L. Wilson at the Greater Emmanuel Church. She sang in the youth choir, the Sunbeams. She lead the song “I Don’t Know About You, but I’m Somebody.” That song was a testament to her life.

She was preceded in death by her parents; Dorothy A (Cobb) and Roscoe Tyler Sr., lifelong companion; William Samuels Jr., and special nephew; Julian Kennedy.
