Condolences to you all. I worked with Vi at BVH in the credit office. She was the best record keeper I have ever knew, never a file out of order. What I remember the most was the high heels she wore everyday even though she had to get on her knees to file. Her smile and her love of her family. May you be comforted in this time of grief by the Lord and Savior Jesus.

You all have my deepest sympathy.
I got to know both Violet and Darl as I was their "banker" prior to my retirement in 2013. I got to know both of them and thoroughly enjoyed my time with them. They always enjoyed talking and bragging about each of you.
They truly became my friends and both will be missed.

We are so very sad to hear of your loss. Your mom was one of the kindest, generous, most loyal people we know, as well as always looking like she stepped out of a beauty salon! (I always loved her shoes!) We will never forget the many wonderful things she did for my mom, and my husband will never forget her chocolate-covered rice crispy treats! You all are a beautiful testament to what a great mom she was. She will never be forgotten.
