  1. Aunt Vi was my aunt, the eldest sister of my mother, Virginia Kutzler.

    When my father died June 1, 1964, she and her husband Clessen were there for me.

    She provided badly needed family income as she shared sewing for Stoehr Dry Cleaners with my mother.

    And she became my de facto mother when my real mother died, in 2006.

    She knew her own heart, and she was always a matriarch to the family.

    I love my Aunt Vi. I hope she is resting in peace.

  2. Aunt Viola was a wonderful giving lady in the truest sense of the word. She always acted in kindness with a generous heart. I know she is missed and that she is returned home.

    With Loving Memories,
    Gloria (granddaughter to Charles & Nellie Scoles via Sharon)

  3. Viola was a long time friend of our family in Pueblo. We will miss her very much. With deepest sympathy. Gladys and Paul Naumann

  4. Iwas a Centennial classmate of 1938 and I extend my heartfelt sympathy to the family.She made our class reunions special.

  5. I worked for your Grandmother for 7 or 8 years at Stoehr Cleaners.At first I thought she was a Marine Corp drill sergeant and then I got to know her.She had her opinion, but I loved her.She taught me so much, she knew alot about sewing and all projects. If I needed help I’d call her for the answer. Since my job at the state and her finally retiring I am sorry to say my last visit was before Christmas last year.Guess her card prompted me to call her, now I’m missing her card to remind me to call her. I hope she had a peaceful death. I would like to what happened. As a friend of her’s I can tell you, she loved her husband,her son and you grandkids and greatgrandsons.It seems like I know you all since she would share all your lives/happenings. With this I pay my sympathy to all of you. To Vi,I’m glad you came into my life and I will miss you old friend. Hope my husband doesn’t make a different rank cuz I’ll have to sew the stripes on.
