She was the 2nd of four girls, Doris, Vi, Gloria, and Gayle. She at- tended elementary school at the Lincoln County country school and Hendricks High School, graduating in 1940 with honors. She married DeVere Stenberg, a test pilot for the US Air Force, in 1942 and traveled with him to California and Arizona during the war years. They were par- ents to two sons: Gary Dean Sten- berg born and died in 1943 and buried at Forest Lawn, CA and Curtis Lee Stenberg born in March 1945. DeVote was killed during a test flight and buried in Coleman, SD. She and her special needs son, Cur- tis, lived in Sioux Falls, SD follow- ing his death. Vi was one of the organizers of the 1 st special education classes in Sioux Falls with her son Curtis and three other students who came to school there with volunteer teachers (herself and the three other mothers) and a supervisor teacher at the time. She later married a high school sweetheart (King Thoelke) on Oc- tober 30, 1960. His two sons, Fred- erick and Dennis became a part of the family and they lived in White, South Dakota for three years. Their daughter Loft Lynn wag born Sep- tember 1961. They owned and op- erated The Farmer's Store in White, SD and moved to Cavalier, ND in 1963 where they purchased and operated Thoelke's Dept Store and Kings Shoe Castle until 1989. In Cavalier she was a part of a com- mittee that helped start the meals on wheels program. Vi was a holne- maker and loved hav- ing coffee time with her friends and preparing meals for the family gatherings at Christmas and the major holidays. She was skilled in sewing and crocheting, trav- eled extensively with King to most states in the United States, all the provinces of Canada except one and several oth- er countries on tours during their re- tirement years. In their retirement, they lived in Florida six months out of the year where she enjoyed the visits of her Florida daughter, Lori and grandchildren, Brianna and Gy- deon (Geddy), and more recently, Brianna's daughter, Lilleigh. She liked her rose garden, cook- ing, baking, playing cards with their friends and traveling, She is re- membered for her key lime pies, home-made baked beans, sweet rolls, foot massages and preparing for picnics at Icelandic State Park when family came to visit. She loved her son Curtis and made sure he came home to visit every month in White, SD and Cavalier, ND until illness made it no longer possible. He was able to visit her in Florida with the care of Friendship staff just last year. She made donations to the annual fundraisers at Friendship, Inc and re- ceived a mother of the year award from Friendship Inc. as a very sup- portive mom of a special needs in- dividual in North Dakota. After King's death in 2013, Vi moved to Florida to live with her daugh- ter, Lori. She re- ceived loving care at every moment, with Lori and grandson, Geddy and her care- giver, Sarah. Grand- daughter, Brianna took time .to stop and see her every week and made sure her little great- granddaughter, LiUeigh, got to know her great-gramma.
