She was a lifelong member of St. John's Parish, its Altar and Rosary Society and prepared meals for several of the priests over the years. She was also an American Legion Post #86 Women's Auxiliary member helping out at their pancake breakfasts and other charitable events. She loved bingo, nights of playing cards with friends and family, and spending time with her family; especially visits from her grandchildren whom she was very proud of. Friends and family were always made welcome in her home and never left hungry. Famous for her homemade pasta and gnocchi, Vi was also an exceptional baker preparing trays and trays of her beloved Italian cookies at Christmas time. Vi's humor, sharp wit and desire for fun made her a loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt and friend.
