Vicki Selje Edwards, age 59, of Darlington, died on Monday, Oct. 12, 2009, at her home with her loving family by her side. Vicki died of a glioblastoma brain tumor. She was born on Feb. 17, 1950, in Dodgeville to Robert and Maxine (Douglas) Ruf. She attended Darlington Elementary School and graduated from high school in Huron, S.D., in the class of 1968. Following high school, she attended MATC for fashion. Through the years, Vicki was an insurance agent for Rural Insurance in Pardeeville and owned "It's You," a women's boutique in Portage. She was the mother of two children, Chad and Buffy. After her husband, Jim Selje, died in a car accident in 1998, she moved to Madison to be closer to her children. On Oct. 13, 2001, Vicki married Ed Edwards. She and Ed moved to Darlington in 2006, where Vicki enjoyed spending time with old classmates and friends, and Ed continued to teach at Darlington High School. Vicki will be remembered for her strong business sense, her love and dedication to family, and her gift for creating a beautiful and loving home. She was a member of Immanuel United Church of Christ in Darlington and of the Farm Bureau. Survivors include her husband, Ed; her daughter, Buffy (Jason) Paul of Point Roberts, Wash.; her son, Chad (Kathleen) Selje of Hudson; her stepson, Brian Edwards of Milwaukee; five grandchildren; her father, Robert Ruf, originally from Darlington and now at Autumn Winds Assisted Living in Cambridge; and many other relatives and close friends. Vicki was preceded in death by her mother, Maxine Ruf, in 2005; and her first husband, Jim Selje, in 1998. Funeral Services was held at First Baptist Church, Darlington, with Pastor Kathleen Rinear of Immanuel United Church of Christ officiating. The family would like to thank the community of Darlington. Vicki often said she was so grateful to be living in a place like Darlington while she was sick. She felt loved and supported by friends, classmates, business owners, teachers and students. The family is also grateful for the medical attention she received from Dr. Lozier at St. Mary's in Madison, and Dr. Joon Uhm and Sue Steinmentz at Mayo Clinic.
