Victoria R. “Vicki” Hammen, age 72, of Little Chute, passed away peacefully with her loving husband at her side on Friday, January 4, 2019. She was born on December 7, 1946, daughter of the late Robert and Mildred (Pennings) Jansen. On June 14, 1969, Vicki married the love of her life, her one true love and her best friend, Bruce Hammen. Together they have celebrated 49 years of marriage.

After graduating from St. John High School, Vicki worked at the Bank of Little Chute, Reynebeau Clothing and finished her career with the Outagamie-Waupaca Library Systems (O.W.L.S.). She enjoyed traveling, music (especially oldies), dancing and was an avid reader. She was also a lifelong member of St. John Nepomucene Catholic Church in Little Chute.

Vicki had a smile that could light up a whole room. She was extremely positive, always looking for the best in situations. Vicki was always having a good time and making everyone’s lives around her better. Her accomplishment that made her the most proud was her family. She absolutely adored her children and grandchildren. They brought her an immeasurable amount of joy.
