Villa was a faithful member of Centralia’s Church of Christ. She was grateful to be a homemaker and to make a comfortable place to land for her family. She loved to work with her hands, keeping them busy with sewing and crocheting. She was a whizz at word puzzles and liked to relax while doing them. Villa was a sweet soul who would do anything for anybody and she will be deeply missed.
