Vi took 9 years of piano and really enjoyed playing. She also enjoyed playing cards, bingo and visiting with family.

In later years she played a lot of crib and was hard to beat. She was in Killam Continuing Care for over 13 years. She became good friends and loved to tease and joke around with the staff. She loved doing puzzles while she lived there.
