Joni and family,
I have many fond memories of Virginia when I was young. She helped me get my first car loan! She was always so kind and friendly. After 40 years away from Maryville, I returned and ran into her shopping. We had a delightful chat about old times. I'm so blessed to have that last memory of her. She will be missed by so many. My deepest sympathy to the Summa family.
