We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Baker Funeral Home
No more hardships, no more pain – only peace and joy forever.
Kylee “Bug” Marie Vickers, age 21, a resident of Central, LA passed away on July 2, 2022, after a life-long battle with Muscular Dystrophy. Her heart and love for Santa and firemen were bigger than her disease. In her short life, Kylee never stopped smiling and taught so many people what love is all about. With her contagious smile and precious giggle, she brought joy to all those she met.
God only gives special children to special mothers - and her mom was the best. Kylee is survived by her mother, Patricia Soileau (Law); father, Michael “Mikie” Vickers, Jr.; stepfather, Josh Law; brother, Chance Vickers; and sisters, Alexa Law, Brenna Law, Skyler Vickers, and Erin Vickers. She is also survived by her maternal grandparents, Craig and Bridget Daigle Soileau; paternal grandparents, Susie Smith Vickers, and Margaret and Alan Law; maternal great-grandparents, Joseph and Pearl Daigle and James and Loretta Soileau; paternal great-grandmother, Louise Smith; and a large host of aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Kylee is preceded in death by her maternal great-grandmother, Lois St. Cyr Soileau; her favorite great uncle, Wayne “Dude” Landry; and her paternal grandfather, Michael Vickers, Sr.
Pallbearers will be Timothy “Doobie” Soileau, Adam Landry, Matt Daigle, Alex Oubre, Chance Vickers and Josh Law and honorary pallbearer Gavin Landry.
