This memorial website and poem below is dedicated to the loving memory of Vedna Elaine Lemley Girten.
Vedna Elaine Lemley Girten
She's our true hero, of that we are certain
She gave all throughout her life
Decreasing many others strife
She was daughter, sister, wife and mother
In these arenas she was like no other
As an officer in the Army, she was proud and brave
We still think often of the many lives she worked to save
Later, after two decades of raising her family
She returned to nursing where she was needed badly
As an RN her actions and deeds were priceless
Her care and concern were considered timeless
Her patients were always grateful
And her family forever thankful
For her selfless dedication
And her constant compassion
Eighty years after her birth
We continue to think about her worth
And just as her actions and words were maternal
Our respect and love for her will be forever more eternal
Vedna Elaine Lemley Girten was born 90 years ago today. She is deeply missed by her family and friends and we are creating this memorial website in her memory so honor all of her accomplishments and contributions. She will remain in our hearts forever.
