Dear Carol and all of Vi’s family and close friends
Please know you are thought of at this time of great loss💕
Vi was such a kind friendly lady , and a tireless volunteer
I recall the many years she took time out of her mornings
and fed residents breakfast at Heritage House
And all her volunteer time with the Happy Gang bringing
pleasant stimulation and music to the Seniors various dwellings
in the town of Stettler
Treasure the happy times 💝
Sincere Condolences
Lyle and Betty Jean Goodkey

Saddened to hear of Vi's passing. She was a valued long term friend!for over 30 plus years. I will miss her bluntness, her sense of humour, her off the cuff comments, her love for those in her life, her deep sense of loss, and love, and her phone calls, regular, and just checking in. She was one of those friends, who just knew how you were feeling. She could be hard as nails or soft as a furry puppy, and used both. I admired her later community service, feeding the older, and the Happy Gang, the meals at the Club. My heartfelt sorrow to Carol, and all her relations..save a space for me eh! Sorry I did not get there earlier, so glad we spoke on phone..Later Vi.

To Carol and all of Vi's family and friends. My sincere sympathy to you all, I remember Vi for her dedication to her volunteering both at Heritage House and the Happy Gang It seemed easy for her to take the time to feed the residents or take them for walks in their wheelchairs.
Treasure your memories,

Ismay Seyer

Hi, so sorry to read about Vi's passing. She was always at Points West when we played music there. A true person who helped anyone in need, and especially when Vi was there to help our mother Helen, when mom needed a hand.
So long Vi

Lane & the Damberger family
