Vanice’s family would like to extend their sincere thank you to Pastor Niles, the Hilbert/Potter First Responders and the EMT’s from Brillion and Chilton. God bless you all!
My sincere condolences to the Wunrow Family.
Your mother will be greatly missed and we are sorry for your loss.
Vance was a special person, an amazing women and an inspiration to everyone. She was the type of person who inspired integrity in those around her; she encouraged others to be the best they could be. That's reflected in all her children’s lives. She holds a special place in everyone’s heart who knew of her and I can't help but smile on the inside when I think about the legacy she is leaving behind. She taught a lot to her children and her children's children. Think about all the generations that have been and will be blessed by the life she lived. I am comfortable knowing that Vance is now with her beloved Harland.
Our Lord and Savior has called home another great servant and saint.
I'm grateful for being able to get to know Vance, and I'm comforted in the knowledge that there are other people who felt and remember her amazing influence.
