Karma N. Vickrey, age 46, of Quincy, went to be with the Lord on Saturday, July 20, 2019, at 7:27 pm in Salem Township Hospital in Salem, IL.
Karma was born August 28, 1973 in Quincy, Illinois, the daughter of Charles Vickrey and Shelly Hultz.
Karma had been employed for ten years by Knapheide Manufacturing. Recently she was working for Aggro Termite and Pest Control. In her spare time, Karma enjoyed hiking, swimming, camping, and going for walks. Music was also a big part of her life. She was a giver with one of the biggest hearts, who always shared whatever she had. She will always be remembered by her family as being the best comedian. Karma cared for every single person that entered into her life.
Karma attended Faith Assembly of God.
Survivors include: her daughter, Emily Schild of Quincy; her father, Charles Vickrey of Salem, IL; her mother, Shelly (Christopher) Hultz of Quincy, IL; her stepchildren, Zane Goehl and Morgan Fleer; her step-brother, Mitchell Provow; two step sisters: Chinü and Brin Hultz; her paternal grandfather, Ronnie Seals; and maternal grandmother, Phyllis Graham, all of Quincy.
Karma was preceded in death by her paternal grandmother; her maternal grandparents; her great grandmother, Reba Simmons; and two uncles, Kerry and Cory Seals.
"She is the brightest star on the darkest night because she understands how it feels to be lost. She is the mountain that offers support and shelter because she understands what it means to be a survivor. But she also is the ocean, pulling her waves back into herself as she rests between breaths, and she hopes that the world understands that even the sun must set to be able to rise."
Services: a celebration of Karma's life will be held at a later date.
Memorials: Quincy Humane Society or to Emily Schild

Karma was a joy to be around. She made me laugh everytime I saw her. I can see her walking down the Quincy Mall making her bicycle horn sound effect. My heart aches when I think about what this world lost by her passing. Rest In Peace angel Karma
Shelly and family, you are in my prayers
Shelly and Family,
My words cannot express the heartfelt pain I am feeling for all of you. What a beautiful and loving daughter Karma was. I had the pleasure of visiting with her many times when she would be on her walks. We shared stories and she shared a picture of the arrowhead she had found in the creek. She was so proud of that. My prayers are with you during this difficult time and if there is anything I can do for you, please let me know. RIP Karma.
My heart is broken for you. I am at a loss for words. She was a such a wonderful person. Her smile and laugh were contageous. I love you Momma Shel. Please know I am praying for all of you. Phyllis, I love you. We all know Reba is holding her beautiful girl and they are safe in Gods arms..though that doesn't ease the pain..praise God she is home and we will see her again.
Shelly, so sorry for your loss. I remember Karma as a beautiful little girl shopping with her mom and grandma. May God grant you comfort and peace during your time of loss and sorrow.
Shelly Phyllis and family. My heart is breaking for you. Just know that you are all in my prayers. Please call if I can do anything for you. Love you all so much
