A resident of Spokane since 1968, Vi previously attended schools in Wisconsin and Salem Oregon and worked as a teachers aid in Corvallis, Oregon, before the family moved to Spokane. She volunteered her help and talents to several Dist. 81 elementary schools over the years. She was devoted to her family, and they to her. She was the cornerstone of this family and will be sorely missed. There will be no formal services at this time, perhaps a memorial picnic this summer.
