Vida Irene Christensen was born December 21, 1940 to Isaac and Irene Goertzen in Madrid, Nebraska. She went to be with the Lord on September 27, 2019 at the age of 78 in Napa, California.
She was survived by her two siblings, Marcella (Arman) and Charles (Gloria); her three sons, Kevin (Tonya), James (Paula) and Eric; grandchildren, Nicole, Kraig, Shane, Troy, Jessica, Hannah, Alyssa, McKenna and Mattison. Vida also had many others who were welcomed into her home and life as adopted sons, daughters, nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Vi loved her family, her church, reading, cooking, tending to her rose gardens, nursing and Elvis Presley. Above all she loved her sweetheart Paul. Their love was an example for all that witnessed it. Her heart ached to be with him.
Vi lived a generous life. She always had a smile, a laugh, a hug, a warm plate of food or even a kick in the butt, whichever you might need. There were no strangers in her life, only people that she hadn’t loved yet.
She was proceeded in death by her parents, Issac and Irene; husband, Paul; brothers, Alwin and David; sister, Deloris and granddaughter Amanda.
A Memorial Service will be held at Grace Evangelical Free Church of Kelseyville on October 12, 2019 at 1:00 PM.
