Reader Input: The visionary that was Vi

-A +A

Re: Viola Eddy, Harwell, Clay, Wrigley (“Viola Wrigley was a Downtown, Old Town Auburn business builder,” Journal, Dec. 27).
Vi was a visionary who saw things as they could be and did something about it. When she partnered with Clay they brought Old Town to life. Then Vi started to purchase old buildings and make them beautiful and new. Did you know that she was also a mother to Ray and Gary, grandmother to Wes and Steve, great-grandmother to Bryan, Emily, Courtney and Spencer, and great-great-grandmother to Trent and Tanner?
It wouldn’t surprise me if she is looking for something to improve in Heaven.
