Butler's Resident Spotlight
My name is Victoria Smith, I was born on November 29th, 1944 to Beatrice and Wilbur Young. We lived in Osceola MO. Memories of my childhood home include living on a farm, milking cows and enjoying my mother's potatoes and biscuits with gravy. I went to school in Osceola and enjoyed helping the teachers int he classroom before school started.
I got my first car when I was a just a teenager and went on a first date with Charlie Bean, who I ended up marrying. We made our first home in Osceola Mo and then moved to Kansas City. One of my fondest memories with Charlie was when we went dancing. Charlie and I had 3 children together.
I worked at the Kansas City Police Department as a police officer for many years. In my free time I enjoy coloring, drawing, painting, gardening and listening to music. I have learned as I have aged that it's important to be respectful of yourself and respect others. Smile and be friendly.
The best advice I can give to this generation would be , keep a good smile on your face, and be positive. The one thing I hope everyone knows about me is that you need to try to make the best of everything, keep having fun all the time and to keep smiling. ... See MoreSee Less
