Obituary for Vicki Lynn Matts

Vicki Lynn Matts, age 63, of Indian River, formerly of Onaway, died at home on Tuesday October 23, 2018. Born in Fairbanks, Alaska on March 17, 1955, Vicki was the daughter of Myron “Mike” and Betty (Parrot) Matts. She resided in Indian River and Onaway most of her life, working as a waitress at Paula’s Café and Wilson’s Restaurant, as well as working for Inland Lakes Community Schools as a receptionist. In 2006 Vicki married Donald “Bud” LaBeau in a ceremony held on the beach at Burt Lake. Bud preceded her in death that same year.

Vicki enjoyed going to Bingo, solving word search and crossword puzzles, and reading. She was quite creative with plastic canvas crafts and enjoyed latch-hooking as well. She loved music, especially Elvis, and had a wonderful sense of humor. An excellent cook, she loved to have her family over for dinner. Loving and caring, Vicki was a great mom and loved her children and grandchildren beyond measure.

Surviving Vicki are her four children, Scott (Sabrina) Thompson of Indian River, Nicole (Ray) Stiles of Onaway, Christina Businger (Ron LaBrecque) of Indian River, and Nathan (Krissi) Thompson of Afton; 11 grandchildren; and three great grandchildren. Vicki also leaves her brothers, Michael (Susan) Matts of Colorado, Danny Matts of Kalkaska, and Chris (Lisa) Matts of Gaylord.

Vicki was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Bud LaBeau; former husband, Billy Thompson; and her brother, Ronnie Matts.

Visitation will be at the Chagnon Funeral Home in Onaway on Monday October 29, 2018 from 11:00 AM until the time of the funeral service beginning at 1:00 PM. Vicki’s final resting place will be in Indian River at the Shrine Cemetery.
