Vi was an avid birder, who traveled the world to observe and document her favorite animals. She was blessed with not just a green thumb, but a golden one, as she was known for the beauty and bounty of the flowers that she grew. A faith based woman, Vi was frequently seen at church praying and offering prayers to everyone. She also wrote many cards and letters to people she never knew, but knowing a kind word might just be what they needed. To know her was to love her.
