Vi Jansky, a very special person has been called on and has left a tremendous void in North Riverside. Vi could be tough when necessary, but with her pure heart and spirit, she just cared about other people and how to make their lives happier through recreation.

You could laugh and tease Vi and she would do the same to you. Be serious, teary-eyed and hug her, and she’d do the same. Working with people daily, especially seniors, could be trying, but she did a tremendous job.

I have known Vi for 10 years and I salute and thank her for helping to make all of our lives a little better. If more people cared like her, the world would be, without doubt, a better place. Don’t ever forget good people.
