Ah Vi, may you rest in peace and may you continue to watch over our CTK Community. Vi was a vital asset to CTK. She was equally loved and feared. One would see her green Saturn appear in the parking lot and folks either scattered or acknowledged her. She was a small woman with a big intimadation factor over many, why I am uncertain.

Dear loving family of Vi Murphy,
Vi was such a life force. I adored her spirit. My mother, Lucile Mattingly also adored her and they were parteners in crime. Christ the King has lost one of the" Best" and she will be greatly missed. Heaven has gained an "awesome super" angel. My mother and Ed and all those gone before her will be thrilled to welcome her home.
God is smiling this day.
All my love and sympathy,
Patti Kepler

I will miss Vi dearly. I loved seeing her at CTK, or at the produce stand. She always had a story, well wishes, and a smile. I hope I can age as gracefully, purposefully, and happily as she did. She was a great inspiration to me.

During the 50's our family shared the Broadmoor neighborhood with Vin and Vi. Our mom always had kind things to say about them, even the many years after we moved into the City. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.

Dear Peggy & Jack, sorry to hear of Vi's passing, I remember her in Broadmoor, like it was yesterday. She sold us our first home in Broadmoor. She will be missed.
Our prayers and thoughts are with you at this sad time.
