Violet Wotus Exline died peacefully at her home at Hidden Lakes Golf Course with her devoted husband of 63 years by her side on Wednesday, November 7, 2018.  Vi was born May 28, 1935 in Crabtree, the 9th of 10 children of the late Joseph A Wotus and Agnes Kustvan Wotus. In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by four brothers, Stanley, John, Andrew and Frank Wotus; and three sisters, Jean Tetorka, Emily Beltz and Alice Stula. She is survived by her husband, Walter L. Exline, Jr.; brother, Joe Wotus of Feeding Hills, MA; sister, Jane Wotus Ranier and husband Ron of Jeannette; a special nephew Ronald Ranier and wife, Amy and children, Maggie and Ben of Murrysville;  and numerous other nieces and nephews.  Walt and Vi were high school sweethearts and graduated together from Greensburg High School in 1953.  They were married at St.  Bartholomew Catholic Church in Crabtree in 1956.  During high school Vi worked as a secretary/clerk at the Greensburg YMCA.  For 13 years she worked at Westmoreland County Municipal Authority as a customer service representative.  She also served as the Secretary for the Water Company Union.  Vi also worked as a customer service representative for Massachusetts Power and Light Company and the Arkansas/Oklahoma Power Co. in Ft.
