They shared 69 years together before Arthur's passing Aug. 23, 2014. A communicant of St. Mark Church, Mrs. Vuillemot especially enjoyed her role as a homemaker, mother, grandmother and taking care of her family.

If someone was sick, they could expect her home made soup guaranteed to make one feel better. An avid and skilled knitter, "Evie" always welcomed a new baby into the family by knitting Booties and Baby Blankets. She was also a member of the Catholic Daughters of the Americas.
