McNulty, Viola Margaret “Vi” Devine Mrs. – Obituary

Viola Margaret “Vi” Devine McNulty, 96, died Aug. 8, 2005, at the Siuslaw Care Center in Florence. A private family graveside service was held in honor of Viola on Aug. 18 at Eagle Valley Cemetery in Richland. A rosary and Mass for the repose of the soul of Viola were offered at the St. Therese Catholic Church in Halfway. Vi Devine was born on Nov. 13, 1908, in Oklahoma to Herbert and Ida Cecilia Stroud Devine. At birth Vi weighed less than three pounds. Stories passed down from family indicate that her tiny head would fit in a teacup and all of her would fit in a shoebox. Vi’s petite physical stature would follow throughout her life; however, being small never proved to hold her back. Vi was raised in Kansas City, where she attended Catholic schools throughout her childhood. Kansas was her metaphysical birthplace as family and friends are aware she would rarely fess up to being born in Oklahoma. Vi graduated from high school in Kansas and later met her future husband at a Kansas dance hall. She married her lifelong dancing partner, Walter McNulty, on Nov. 12, 1927. They were later the proud parents of two daughters, Nora and Margaret. Vi led a very colorful life and pursued many interests. Her work-life included: waitressing at an affluent boarding house; inspecting airplane wings at San Diego’s Consolidated...
