She married her college sweetheart and beloved husband, Scottie Doyle Pruett, on March 25th, 1972. Vicki worked as an elementary school teacher for 12 years for the Fort Worth ISD and Birdville ISD, where she was able to combine her passion for physical education and motivating children to succeed. In 1982, the Pruett’s moved to South Arlington where they built their family home and began competitive horseback riding through playdays and rodeos.
Vicki loved animals and had a special place in her heart for palomino horses and Australian Shepherds. She was a respected amateur and professional barrel racer and pole bender. Vicki was the biggest cheerleader for her family and for the competition in the barrel racing and pole bending community. She was adored for her kindness, positivity, charm, and light-hearted sense of humor. Vicki always had a smile on her face, and she was as beautiful on the inside as she was on the outside. Her enthusiasm, competitive spirit and love for life will be dearly missed.
She was preceded in death by her father, Robert Henninges. Survivors: She is survived by her mother, Patsy Lou Henninges, of Carlton, Texas, husband Scottie of 51 years, her daughter Summer Pruett, and son Ryan Pruett.
