On October 22, 2022, Edith Victoria Brito Standage was called home after fighting cancer and many other health challenges throughout her life. Vickie was born March 23, 1942 in Talca, Chile to Agueda de las Mercedes Gutierrez and Erasmo Segundo Brito. After moving to the United States, she married Melvyn Richard Standage on May 5, 1966 in the Mesa Arizona Temple. Richard and Vickie were blessed with seven children, 28 grandchildren, and 5 great-grandchildren.
Throughout her life, Vickie’s faithfulness and compassion were evident to all who knew her. In addition to many Church callings, she and Richard loved their time serving a mission in the Central America Area Public Affairs mission. Vickie had a gift for seeing those who needed her love and care. She had endless love to give to others. Many have considered her a second mom in their lives. Her main focus, however, was always her own children: John (Anna); Richard (Gayle); Paul (Tammy); Tina (John) Bushman; Julie (James) Turner; Jeff (Tracy); and Laurie (Brian) Amos. After 56 years of marriage, her devoted husband, Richard, whom she lovingly called Skip, will dearly miss the love of his life. She will also be missed by her four sisters Hilda, Lucy, Rosa, and Gloria, and many other family members and friends.
