Vickie L. Goldapske

Vickie L. Goldapske, 59, of Van Dyne, died Wednesday March 27, 2024, with her family by her side. She was born in Fond du Lac on March 5, 1965, to Junior and Germaine (Kubelt) Patt. On April 1, 1989, Vickie married Ronald Goldapske at Covenant United Methodist Church (UMC) in Fond du Lac.

Vickie was involved in her community whether as a life-time member of the Van Dyne Sportsman Club, Kiwanis, or coaching basketball. She currently served on three boards: NFDL School District Board (as clerk), Covenant UMC, and Sturgeon for Tomorrow. Vickie had a part in the WI Chiropractic Association (WCA) and was one of the founders of the Chiropractic Society of WI (CSW). She started Goldapske Chiropractic in 1993, founded Dynamic Chiropractic & Wellness in 2001 and Wellness Way Affiliate in 2015. She cared greatly about her patients and touched many lives. Beyond her extensive years serving the community, she had a love for the outdoors. Vickie participated in fishing tournaments, speared many sturgeon and was an avid hunter. She shot trap and was top gun for women 25 years in a row. She and her husband won several husband-and-wife team of the year awards and championships from Midwest Walleye Series (MWS) and Master Walley Circuit (MWC). In doing so, they made many friends across the country. Vickie also loved walking her property to take in wildlife, tending to her flowers and garden, canning from it and enjoyed decorating for the seasons. She enjoyed archery, basketball, golf, and playing cribbage with Karen and Jon. Vickie was very involved with her son’s sports activities. She assisted with the basketball youth program as well as helped coach the North Fond du Lac girls. She was proud to have been a part of the coaching team when they made it to state. As a favorite activity each year, Vickie and her family travelled to Mount Morris to shoot archery golf. And, beyond her many other hobbies, she loved playing her grand piano.
