Vida Mae Krough, daughter of Joseph and Olive (Fox) Bramley, was born Dec. 24, 1922 in Arion. She received her education in Dow City.

In 1943 Vida was united in marriage to Carroll H. Kimmick. Vida was employed at Crow Drug for a few years before her marriage to Fay Melvin Zeigler in Feb. 1945. She then helped on the farm and cared for her family. They were blessed with a son and a daughter.

Vida was a member of the First United Methodist Church and church circle, Freedom Township Women's Club, Birthday Club and the Palo Alto County Hospital Auxiliary.

After Fay's death, Vida later married Earnest J. Krough in Mar. 1976. Vida loved playing Bingo several times a week and also playing cards with her friends.

She enjoyed planting and tending her flower gardens and thoroughly loved decorating her home for the holidays. She looked forward to Halloween and giving the kids candy. Each year she kept track of how many children she had come to her home.

Vida was able to live in her own home until July 2016 when she moved to the Emmetsburg Care Center.
