I knew Vi from the Davenport YMCA. She was very active in recent years and taught us younger ones a lesson -- keep yourself fit. A sweet woman, she will be missed. Kathy LaFrenz, Davenport

I was honored to call Viola a friend. My husband and I were neighbors with her at assisted living. She was a gentle, kind person who was always had a smile when you talked with her. She loved to talk about her family. Viola was very proud of them. I haven't seen her since covid started but I have missed


Vi was an awesome woman.
