Vicki Lynn Zastrow, 69 of Columbia Falls, passed away on June 13, 2024. She was born July 29, 1954, in Merrill, Wisconsin, to the late William Zastrow and Florence Duginski Zastrow.

Vicki enlisted in the U.S. Army from January 1973 to August 1974 during the Vietnam War as a central office switchboard operator. Vicki was many things to many people, a mother, a daughter, a sister and a friend. Vicki was a kind soul who loved fervently. Her family was everything to her. Vicki’s love enveloped everyone she came into contact with, and her light shines through the ones she touched. We are deeply saddened by her untimely passing, but we take comfort in knowing she is no longer suffering.

She leaves behind a loving family, including her six children, Nathaniel Green, Amanda (Jason) Nelson, Sophia Zastrow, Alan Zastrow, Lisa (Josiah) Swanson, and Troy Zastrow; her nine grandchildren, Tyla, Ava, Orion, Julian, Jayden, Tayvia, Wyatt, Ben and Nora; her sister, Katie (Dave) Morrison; her brothers, Glen (Jum) Zastrow and David (Shannon) Zastrow.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Florence Duginski Zastrow; father, William Zastrow; sisters, Gail Zastrow and Teresa Zastrow; and nephew, Benjamin Zastrow. 

Vicki will be honored at 11 a.m. on July 5, at St. Richard’s Catholic Church 1210 Ninth St. Columbia Falls. A picnic will immediately follow from 12-5 p.m. at Marantette Park Pavilion, 233 13th St. E., Columbia Falls.

A veteran’s honorary burial will be held in Merrill, Wisconsin, on Friday, July 12, at St. Francis Xavier, 49 Topaz St., Merrill, WI 54452.
