    Vi became a terrific friend during her time at SCC Elementary. We enjoyed many wonderful conversations. Many thanks to her and Vernon for turning me into a skilled gardener! Rest In Peace, Sweetheart!

    So sorry for your loss. I knew your mom and dad through my parents, Howard and Betty Hutton. We had such good times when the families would gather at the Hutton farm in Roberts. I also remember attending a wedding anniversary party for Vern and Viola.
    Viola was a lovely lady. May she rest in peace.
