Vicki Zoubek of Tobias, NE passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Tuesday September 12, 2023 at the age of 73. She was born on June 11, 1950 to Victor and Mildred Slepicka in Swanton, NE. She attended Swanton public school through the 8th grade then went on to attend Western high school where she was a standout volleyball player graduating in 1968. She was united in marriage to Jerome Zoubek on June 19, 1971. To this union Travis, Kim, Jerrod, and Corey were born. She spent her early years of marriage being a farm wife and taking care of her children.
After her husband’s passing in 1988 she was tasked with raising her children on her own. She faced many challenges along the way but somehow managed to always make it work. She was always a very hard working and caring person always putting everyone else before her. She worked in Fairbury, NE for many years and even purchased and ran a bar and grill in Tobias, NE for several years. She then continued as a cook at a cafe in Ohiowa, NE right up to the day she was finally hospitalized for her illness.
Vicki always loved spending time with family, especially her grandchildren. You could always see her at their sporting events or school programs. Her love for cooking was inherited from her mom Mildred. She loved cooking and you could always count her to provide delicious meals. She always made way more than needed and that was always evident when she showed up with enough food to feed 50 people and there was only 5 people eating. She loved baking kolaches and other Czech dishes. Her loving smile and always happy attitude is what everyone loved about her and will miss.
Vicki is preceded in death by her husband Jerome, her parents Victor and Mildred, her brother Franklin, her sister Charlene, and special friend Albert Shultz.
She is survived by her children Travis Zoubek, Kim Kotas and husband Bryan, Jerrod Zoubek and Wife Becky, and Corey Zoubek and wife Cori. Grandchildren Kaleb Kotas, Breanna Zoubek, Jonathan Zoubek, Ashlyn Zoubek, Kirstin Zoubek, and Kolin Zoubek. Sisters Susie and Dennis Francis, and Patsy and Gary Meyer.
