Victoria Dahack Dugan was born April 9, 1916 in Eagle Point, to Ernest and Grace Dahack. In 1920, her parents founded the family business, the Oasis, on the edge of town; it was originally a gas station and barber shop, and later, a dance hall. Vickie graduated from Eagle Point High School in the 1930's, and went on to manage the sewing department at Mann's Department Store in Medford. After World War II, Vickie's brother, Ed Dahack, opened a tavern and later converted their parents' dance hall to a bar called Ed's Oasis. Vickie became a bartender for Ed and tended bar until her retirement. Vickie married Timothy R. Dugan in the early '50's, who predeceased her in 1964; they had no children. In the 1980's, Vickie performed hundreds of times with a comedic hillbilly band called the Household Cuties, which surprised everyone who knew her to be quiet and shy. But Vickie's great talent and love was gardening. Her back yard was a true "Oasis" of lush plants, flowers and delicate wind chimes, enjoyed by many friends and family. In addition to her husband, Vickie was predeceased by her parents, and her sister, Ernestine Dahack Henshaw. She is survived by her brother, Edgar Dahack.
