Funeral will be live on the Solid Rock Church- Worthington Facebook page.

Viola “Vi” Bartholomaus, age 91, of Worthington, passed away on November 23, 2020, at the Sanford USD Medical Center in Sioux Falls, SD. She was born October 18, 1929, in Randall Valley, SD to Walter and Nettie (Pearson) Roos. Her family lived in South Dakota until the spring of 1937 when the family moved to the Portland Oregon area. After one year there, the family moved back to the midwest settling in Worthington, which was the area where her father was born and grew up.
She graduated from Worthington High School in 1947. She worked as a secretary at Rickbeils Hardware and Appliance Store for three years. She married William Bartholomaus on October 29, 1950, in Worthington, MN where they resided until her husband was transferred by Montgomery Ward to Montevideo, MN and one year later to Redwood Falls, MN. Viola and her husband raised all of their five children in Redwood Falls. While in Redwood Falls, she worked at the District Court at the Redwood County Courthouse as a clerk for 22 years.
Viola loved to sing in duets, trios and as a soloist for most of her life. One of Vi’s favorite hobbies was researching genealogy and sewing quilts for her grandchildren. She loved listening to Christian music and cherished going to lunch with her friends. She loved people and most of all she loved her Lord.
She is survived by her children, Cindy Doms, Keith (Shelly) Bartholomaus, Vicki (Galen) Meyers and Lori (Jeff) Westrum; 11 grandchildren; 27 great grandchildren and many nieces, nephews and special friends.
She is preceded in death by her husband, William; daughter and son in law, Debra and Tom Krull; her parents; sisters, Irene Carlson and Elvera Robbins; brother, Stanley Roos.
