On October 22, 1955, she married Joe L Viney at the Brethren Church in Flora and they spent 61 years together working the ground, raising a family and taking care of each other.

    Dear Sandi,
    When I read your Moms name in today’s paper, it made my heart ache. I’m so sorry for your loss. It doesn’t matter how old we are, this I believe is one of the hardest goodbyes we experience, for now. We’re praying for the comfort and strength you’ll need in the days to come. Thinking about you and your family, my friend. Love, Debbie Adams

    We were so saddened at the passing of your mom. We knew her and Joe from the Pizza King Flora. They would come in and visit when we owned it. When we saw them in restaurants and out and about, she was so kind and always had a good word. She left the world leaving behind a loving legacy. Prayers for Joe and all of your family.
