The heart-breaking news that Vicki Thomas has passed away reached the Steelers community on Monday evening.
As many of you know Vic, wife of former Steelers fan favourite Mark Thomas, had been suffering with Breast Cancer.
Many of you donated last year to “Prevent Breast Cancer” when a group from the club had their heads shaved – more of you donated for the Simmsey and Friends walk from Sheffield to Manchester, a walk that Mark participated in.
The Steelers group of Mark’s time was a special group, a tightly knitted band of players and their wives. The Thomas, Hewitt, Legue, Phillips, Munn, Dagenais, Finnerty, Lehman and Sarich’s of this world.
Mark and Vicki were at the forefront of all that happened in that time. Vicki was one of the most popular people ever associated with this club.
The Steelers have Mark and Vicki in their DNA, the Steelers family are truly saddened by this wonderful ladies’ loss. As a club and as a fan base we will be there for Mark and his family.
Mark and Vicki have two special young sons, Bailey and Harley, our sincere and deepest condolences go out to them all.
