The Riverbend has lost one of its hardest working volunteers. Bobbi Vandalia passed away Monday evening, apparently of a massive heart attack. She was active in a number of causes, including the Christmas Dinner at College Avenue Presbyterian Church, and she was instrumental in establishing the AIDS Quilt project in Madison County.
Pastor Emeritus at the College Avenue Presbyterian Church, George Humbert, says she gave freely of her time and compassion.
Vandalia was 67 years old. Arrangements are being handled through Staten-Fine Funeral Home in Alton.
