To the Vahle Family,
My sincerest condolences, on the passing of this gem of a woman.
From my Cub Scout den mother, to my opponent in euchre tournaments she touched my life.
Laughed with her recently at Sprouts, and have very fond memories of “Mrs Vahle”.
I don’t ever remember beating her in euchre, and I never called her Barb.

To the Vahle Family,
My sincere condolences on the passing of a gem of a woman. Mrs. Bailey was my Cub Scout den mother, my opponent in euchre tournaments, and someone who touched my life. Recently saw her at sprouts, and we were laughing within 30 seconds. I have very fond memories, I don’t remember ever beating her at euchre, and I never called her Barb. The way we grew up she was Mrs. Vahle.
