Hi again everyone!
This is way long overdo, and I apologize for not doing it sooner. Its hard to believe Vee has been gone almost 4 years. She passed away suddenly in 2005 leaving many friends she's made over the years on the PADUTCH-LIFE Mailing List on Rootsweb. She was the admin of that list from its start in February of 1998 to right up to the very end of her very full life in October of 2005.
She would often share with us stories of her daily life including her past achievements down to her struggles of failing health.
She entered the Navy as a WAVE and retired a Chief Petty Officer.
She had a unique ability of reaching across cyberspace to become a friend and "aunt" to many. We would always gather around her Virtual Kitchen Table to enjoy her company on the list.
She will TRULY be missed and the list has never been the same without her.
Rest in Peace, Vee.
