Vie Carlson Laid to Rest

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- A Rockford legend was laid to rest today.

Dozens of friends and family members gather to remember Vie Carlson. Chances are you probably saw her around town, knitting at the Riverhawks games or playing piano at Anderson Gardens.

If you haven't heard of Vie, you probably know two of her sons. Cheap trick drummer, Bun E Carlos and former Riverhawks owner Kurt Carlson. Carlson died late last month of pancreatic cancer at the age of 87.
