Victoria Halstead

Victoria Platt Halstead, 68, passed away at her home in Richland, Washington on Friday May 3, 2024, in the arms of her husband Steve and surrounded by the dogs she loved. 

Vickey was born in Richland, Washington on January 21, 1956, and other than the four years she attended Washington State University has lived in the Tri-Cities all her life.  After graduating from WSU, Vickey worked on the Hanford Site starting as a Reactor Operations Technician with Westinghouse Hanford at the Fast Flux Test Facility, where she met her future husband, and ending as an Operational Specialist/Plant Engineer with Fluor Hanford. 

As a little girl, Vickey was a fearless snow skier who was determined not to be out done by the boys.  That determination followed her into the horse show arenas then on into the dog show rings.  Vickey bred and showed AKC championship dogs; Salukis, Chinese Cresteds and Portuguese Podengo Pequenos, traveling throughout the Pacific Northwest for shows.  She was a long-time member and supporter of both the Richland Kennel Club and the Puget Sound Saluki Club, helping whenever needed.  Vickey volunteered at Kadlec Hospital with her Caviler King Charles Spaniel, Gabby, as part of the Pet Therapy Program and was loved by all.   In her spare time, Vickey made her own beaded jewelry and wall art and absolutely adored anything to do with teddy bears, bunnies, or dragons. 

Vickey is survived by her husband of 43 years, Steve Halstead, sister Terra Buxton, niece Cirith Anderson and nephew Carl Anderson. 

Vickey was preceded in death by her father Allison Platt and mother Marinel Platt.

  • Vickey was one of the most positive people I’ve ever known. We shared a love for our horses and dogs,
    were classmates, even roommates at WSU. She was so close to her parents, especially her dear mother, and adored her sister. It’s so hard to believe she is no longer here. My condolences to her husband, family, and friends.
