Instead, about 200 showed up to honor her after veterans’ groups organized a social media campaign, since she had no known living relatives. Vine, a graduate of the University of California, served in the Navy from 1944 to 1946 in radio intelligence and spoke three languages, according to the obituary published by A. L. Bennett and Son Funeral Home.
