Vicki Fujii Matsumori (born December 15, 1950) was the second counselor to Cheryl C. Lant in the general presidency of the Primary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) from 2005 to 2010.[1]

Vicki Fujii was born in Murray, Utah. Her parents were not members of the LDS Church, but they sent her to a local LDS congregation as a child. When she was eight years old, Matsumori was baptized a member of the church. Later, when she was in high school, her parents also became members of the church. In 1973, she married James Matsumori in the Salt Lake Temple. They are the parents of three children. Matsumori obtained a degree in journalism and English from the University of Utah in 1973.

At the April 2005 general conference, Matsumori was accepted by the church as the second counselor of Cheryl C. Lant in the general presidency of the Primary. Prior to her call to the general presidency, Matsumori was a member of the general Primary board for five years and was a frequent contributor to the Friend magazine. She was released at the April 2010 General Conference.[1] From 2010 to 2013, Matsumori served with her husband in Washington D.C., while he was a mission president for the LDS Church.

In the summer of 2014, the Matsumoris were called to begin service in November as president and matron of the Jordan River Utah Temple. Due to health issues they were unable to serve, with a new president and matron named in August 2014.[2][3] James Matsumori died on December 8, 2015.[4]
