VIKKI TAKKI: In Memoriam
Vikki was one of the very earliest members of the Polish Society of Cape Cod and the Islands. She served as president in 2002-2003 and was always on top of all that was happening in the various multicultural groups on the cape. She represented us with the International Night Gala for many years . She could reach back in time and tell how things were done at any given meeting. And her presence was always noted as she wore her Polish costume with great ease and pride. She is survived by three sons , Larry, Andrew and Richard and two grandchildren , Brendan and Colman Burns-Takki and a sister, Francis Fortin and several nieces and nephews. May she rest in peace, a grand daughter of Polonia.
