Vicki Lynn Powell: A pillar of the community and a celebration of life


We are sad to announce the death of our dearest Vicki “Micki” Lynn Powell, who passed away in Denver, CO on Friday, December 23, 2022.  She died of complications following a brief stay at the ICU for a short-term illness.  Vicki was born on September 2, 1961, in Brighton, CO, after which her family moved to Boulder County.  Vicki spent her entire life in the Lafayette/Louisville community.  She graduated from Centaurus High School in 1979 and was an NCAA Division I Track and Field athlete at Utah State.  Vicki was a dedicated and impactful high school counselor at Brighton High School for 21 years and a highly decorated track and field coach for 30 years.  She was recognized as the Boulder County Track and Field Honorary Coach of the year in 2022.

Vicki was a positive person who saved lives and cared deeply about people.  She loved animals, angels, coaching, her home on Baseline Road, game nights, watching movies, the Denver Broncos, scratch tickets, and spending time with friends.  She was a funny and trusted confidant as well as a guiding light to all.  Vicki was preceded in death by her grandmother Myra Anderson; her mother Ilene Powell; and her brother Philip Powell.  She is survived by her niece and nephews, Billie Rae, Danny, and Cody Powell; a close circle of friends whom she cherished like sisters; and her two beloved cats, Smokey, and Baby J, who have been adopted into a new loving home.
