Vi was a huge-hearted, deep-loving, dependable, and strong-willed woman who was devoted to all those whom were in contact with her. She was the rock and foundation that shaped and held her family together. As a wife she modeled loyalty, support, and dedication to 65 years of marriage. Her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren were the apple of her eye. Vi was a passionate and excellent cook! She had a very green thumb, loved animals, was crafty, and loved to vacation with her family, especially camping. She was a bilingual secretary for Pasadena ISD. Vi will be greatly missed by all those who survived her, but her legacy will live on through all the lives she touched.
