Born: July 17, 1914
Died: March 24, 2019
Longtime member, 104-year-old Vevette, died Sunday, March 24. Going to church every Sunday was something she had done since she was a young girl and it meant a lot to her. She was a faithful Sunday attender as well as other events when she was able.
Vevette was involved in UCUCC through Women’s Fellowship Circle, support of UCHA (University Congregational Housing Association), Superfluity in housewares years ago, and many other ways.
Vevette also was a big Husky fan and always knew how the teams were doing. She was a grateful and gracious person who will be missed by many.
Please hold Vevette’s family in your prayers.
