Vicky Lynn Bowman Hall was born November 10, 1963, in Algona daughter of Virgil William and Irene (Laabs) Wolf. She grew up in Bancroft graduating from St. John's Catholic High School in 1982. She then attended Iowa Lakes Community College where she met Brian Bowman.
Vicky was married to Brian in 1983 and they lived in Fort Dodge. She was a cashier at Kwik Shop for many years. She was the neighborhood "mom" to everyone that lived in the neighborhood. She would cook for all the neighbors on a small grill outside on the front steps in the summer.
On July 27, 1999 she was married to Mike Hall in Jefferson, Iowa. They lived on an acreage north of Burt. Vicky worked at Cargo Express Convenience Store in Bancroft for many years until it burnt down. She then worked at the K&H Convenience Stores in Burt and Algona, and for the past several years she was assistant manager of Cross Roads Convenience Store in Algona.
Her major life interest was focused around her family. She would always cook large meals for get-togethers. She loved taking the kids to the pool and Smith Lake in the summer. It was important to her that everyone spent as much time together as possible when she wasn't working.
Her mothering style was very unique and unconventional. Her relationships with her children varied; but all felt a great closeness to her. She kept the family together through many struggles. She always made sure her children were taken care of, no matter the cost. She was an amazing mother and the 'rock' of the family who will be severely missed. She was one to whom everyone looked to for advice; and life will not be the same without her. Many people's lives were touched by Vicky and she was loved many.
Vicky L. Bowman Hall tragically died Monday, November 15, 2010, at Kossuth Regional Health Center, Algona, at the age of 47.
