Aunt Vi was always a breathe of fresh air and someone whose antics made everyone laugh!!! I loved her dearly and wish I could be at her service... She was one of a kind!!!

Marvin and Flo Baker on Feb 13, 2018

We were so sorry to hear about Vi. We have been friends for over 60 years. She was always so good about sending us clippings from the Hawkey to keep us informed about Burlington. We extend our sympathy to Colleen and family. We have missed hearing from her. Flo and Marv Baker
