    I am so sorry to here of your loss. Vi and my mother Jeannette Newell were avid bingo players, together they frequented many a bingo hall, enjoyed each others company, and often won “Big”. My mother has been gone for years, but I know Vi healed a special place in her heart. May she rest in peace, with deepest Sympathy Amy (Newell) Laurencio

    Vi + Charlie were our neighbors and I grew up with her as my, as she liked to call it, “adopted grandmother”. My brother and I would spend afternoons eating snacks and playing cards with her. It’s so sad to know she’s gone but I’m so grateful for the time I got to spend with her! She and Charlie were both incredibly kind to my family, and always welcomed us in their home, and Vi continued to have us over for visits right up to the year she passed. She is so very missed. Love you Vi!
