One thought on “Vielka Holness”
I’m Vielka’s surviving spouse, and stumbled across this website today. She would love being remembered in this way. She was active in a number of LGBTQ and other civil rights organizations and causes over the years. Thank you for this tribute, and for this website. Judy Keenan
