Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

r Venice O. Westman celebrated her 99th birthday Nov. 26, 2016. She was born in Neola to Jesse and May Nielsen. She had one brother and three sisters, one who is still living and who she is very close to. She lived in Springville for 66 years before moving to the Abbington in Mapleton. She was a school lunch lady and did sewing alterations. She loves to crochet and laugh. She married Wilford “Bill” Westman after meeting him in Las Vegas at a roller skating rink. He passed away 25 years ago. Together they had three children: son David and Connie Rowan and daughters Judy and Gary Chrisman, and Donna and Alan Ellis. They have 11 grandchildren, 26 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild. Venice started collecting Baviarian Village pieces when her husband passed away and her collection has grown during the past 25 years. This year she chose to share it with all the Abbington staff and residents. Her children set it up and it took most of the day. It is beautiful to see, especially in the evening. Thank you, Venice, for sharing.
