Vida was a member of the Everett Church of God, and retired from JC Penney. She read her Bible every day, until she was no longer able. In Vida’s life she couldn’t ever remember a time when she was angry with anyone. She was an excellent seamstress who made clothes for herself and her sister Gussie, she also knitted, crocheted, and made crafts with her daughter. She was still active at 85 years old pulling weeds in her garden, harvesting produce, and earlier in life grew her own African Violets. Most of all she loved her family, and grandchildren, and will be greatly missed.
