Vicki Lee (Upton) Sweet, 71, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family at her home in Superior on Sunday, October 11, 2020. She was born June 6, 1949 in Lincoln, NE to Bill and Iva Mae Upton.
They moved to Superior, NE in 1951. Vicki grew up in Superior with her sister Pam and close to her cousins Stephanie, Rick, Julie and Jeff Alexander.

She was involved (although not always willingly) in piano lessons, square dancing, triple trio, class plays and various other school activities.
She graduated Superior High School in 1967 and received her Bachelor of Science in Education with an endorsement in Elementary education and Special Education from the University of Nebraska Lincoln in 1971. She moved to Beemer, NE to begin her teaching career. Vicki spent a couple years at Fremont teaching special education and then shortly after that moved to Superior, NE where she continued her teaching career for Superior Public Schools for the next 40 years.
Vicki met her husband Harold Sweet while she lived in Fremont. She moved to Superior shortly after they met. Together they had 3 daughters and 1 son. Vicki was a member of PEO, Mothers Club, the bell choir at the Superior United Methodist Church and a few Bridge Clubs.
She retired from teaching in May of 2013 and devoted her time to her family. Her favorite thing to do was watch her 9 grandkids grow and play. They were her pride and joy and would do everything and anything for them.
