March 01, 1934 ~ January 23, 2021

Vera Ida Coerper ( Vicky) Hampshire, born on 3,1,34 , Milwaukee Wisconsin, died unexpectedly Jan. 23, 2021. Vicky was a strikingly beautiful woman even into her eighties. She lost her father as a small child. Fom then on her brother, Milo, took on the dual role of father and brother of his “baby sister.”  He was there for her or the rest of his long life, for which she was eternally grateful.


Vicky greatly enjoyed her family. She had three daughters, Susan and Cindy Sleeman and Hope Hampshire, seven grandchildren, 10 great grand children and 1 GREAT great grandchild , all of whom she  she was very proud.


She had a wonderful life and many adventures . She fell in love with skiing and had a life long career in the ski business. In 1975 she purchased  an old sea captains home in Milbridge Maine were she spent her summers . For many years she ran a bed and breakfast. She was very involved with the Petit Manan Yacht Club and was  instrumental in  developing the junior sailing program. She also loved volunteering for the Schoodic Arts at Hammond Hall in Winter Harbor.


After she retired she spent some time Rving, and enjoyed volunteering at campgrounds.


Vicky was a very social person and loved a good time. She sparkled at parties. She had many dear, dear friends and will be greatly missed.


Vicky has sailed off into the sunset with a martini in one hand and a hot dog in the other  to be with those she loved who went before her.

Vicky was a beautiful, enlightened, fun loving lady who drew friends around her with her wit and vivacious personality. She was loved and will be missed.

what a wonderful write up. It catches the total essence of Vicky. She will be terribly missed for her kindness, compassion and most of all for her joy in life and the ability to create an atmosphere of fun and gladness. Ahoy Vicky! I just hope they have martinis up there.

To Vicky’s daughters and family, I write this message through tears of sadness knowing that I will not have another opportunity to share a glass of wine with Vicky (or her favored martini), her infectious laugh, and her joie de vivre in everything she did throughout her life. She lived a life of privilege but it did not define her. Vicky found the positive in every person she met and every experience she encountered. Everyone from an infant to the aged were enchanted with Vicky because she took a sincere interest in them. She so adored ‘her girls’ and her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She stayed up to date on what each of you were doing in your lives and was so incredibly proud of all of your accomplishments. Vicky loved snow skiing and sailing and made lifelong friends from her days in Sun Valley, Manhattan, Greenwich, Conn, S. FL and ME and she was always eager to introduce us to one another. Faith was so important to Vicky and she loved attending All Saints Episcopal Church w me when she wintered in S. FL. I take solace that she is now with her beloved parents and brother Milo and friends and my husband who came to love her as much as I did. Thank you Susan, Cindy, and Hope for sharing your extraordinary mother with us. She left an indelible mark on those privileged to meet her as I know she did on me. With love, Deb

Susie and Cindy,
Just found out about your mom’s passing. She was indeed a strikingly beautiful woman, something I was aware of even as a young kid back in those wonder years days of Chester, CT. It has been a long, long time but I remember her quite clearly and from the photo above would recognize her immediately if we passed in the street. The years did nothing to diminish her beauty. I am profoundly sorry for her passing and your loss. From what I recall she was a super cool mom. I hope you both find solace in a life although now over, well lived. Although not requested in her obit I’ve made a donation in her memory to the Schoodic Arts for All.
With sadness,
Dave Burr

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
