I will have to start off with, what a sweet lady! I can remember as a child her and Aunt sister coming to visit my grandparents. My grandfather was her brother and they would all sit around telling old stories from their childhood. They were all interesting stories but the one that sticks out in my mind is one about Aunt Vashti as a child. They were made to work as a children very hard and my grandfather liked to get her going by telling a story of Vashti having these "fainting spells" when it was chore time. He would pick at her saying that she did this on purpose to get out of working. Of course we would all chuckle. You will be missed!

My deepest sympathy to her family and friends who truly loved her so much. Ty was quite a woman! Although small in stature, Ty was large in knowledge, giving spirit, and her abundant love! I am grateful for the years I got to know and love her, she was always so sweet and kind to me! Heaven has gained quite an angel! ❤️
