Vicki Jo was born on September 10, 1962 in Nebraska City, NE; the daughter of Jack and Patricia Jo (Marion) Aufenkamp.  She grew up and attended school in Nebraska City where she graduated from Nebraska City High School with the Class of 1980.

She spent most of her life in food service. She was a longtime server at the Embers in Nebraska City and was an original member of the opening staff at the Lied Lodge, progressing to management in her career there.  She also worked as the food and beverage manager at Arbor Links Golf Course, and in her later years she operated a cleaning business.

In 1995, Vicki met Gary Denniston and the two spent close to 30 years together, marrying on March 13, 2020. She was a devoted grandmother and enjoyed spending time with her granddaughters.
