She married Fred “Fritz” Dehnert of the Town of Milford, on August 19, 1939 at the Moravian Church in Lake Mills, Wisconsin. Later, they moved to Milwaukee where their 3 daughters were born. They left Milwaukee in 1942 and moved to Janesville, where Vi worked as a Customer Service Rep for the Electric Company. Later they moved to Kewaskum where she was a Customer Service Rep for the West Bend Company and Regal Ware, Inc. She was also, at one time, a Legal Secretary for a Lawyer in Hartford, Wisconsin.
In 1970 they retired and moved to Neillsville where they purchased and operated “Christie’s Bar” in Christie, Wisconsin until 1986.
Vi was a volunteer for “Lights Club” of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Neillsville. She was an avid crocheter of beautiful doilies which she donated to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield as a member of the Knitting and Crocheting Club. She was proud of her Norwegian heritage.
