First, let me express my sympathy for your loss. Then, I have a question. I grew up just south of Salem, Indiana, and my father's best childhood friend was Arthur Voyles. His wife was Vivian (Venable) Voyles, and we called them Uncle Arthur" and "Aunt Vivian." When I saw those names in Mr. Venable's obituary, and the location, I could only wonder if they could be the same people. My "Uncle Arthur" also worked for the Highway Dept. off and on, making another connection.
Again, please accept my sympathy for your loss.
