The Widow Snustad (Vivian)

Mrs. Gilmer Gilmerson (Mavis)
In her 50’s, she is an able-bodied farm wife. Mavis is extremely good-natured, and often tries to dispel any tension in the kitchen by changing the subject or telling a joke. She knows the lineage of every family in town, and is always willing to pitch in and fix someone’s tractor, peel a potato, or scrub the lutefisk pot. She believes hard work is good for the soul. The lowest of the voices – Low – A flat below middle C. High - D, a major 9th above middle C
