Vicky graduated from Yuba City High School in 1961 and married Tom Jernigan in December of 1962. The Jernigan family first came to Plumas County in the summer of 1976. Vicky loved Greenville and Plumas County. She was a mother to all that met her, especially in the 1970s and ’80s while her children attended Greenville High School.
The family is especially grateful to the entire staff of the Seneca Long Term Care facility who gave Vicky a new lease on life and cared for her as if she were their own mother. The family is also thankful for the involvement of the Smith family of Greenville in their unwavering support and friendship of Vicky.
