The Telegram (St. John’s) - - OBITUARIES -

Apr. 9, 1942 – Oct. 4, 2018

It is with great sad­ness, the fam­ily of Vi­o­let an­nounce she passed peace­fully away on Thurs­day, Oct. 4th, 2018, af­ter a brief ill­ness at the age of 76 years. Vi­o­let is lov­ingly re­mem­bered by her hus­band of al­most 58 years, Harold, as well as five chil­dren: Peter (Veron­ica), Deb­bie (Leo), Fred (Su­san), Rhonda and Boyd (Donna), as well as eight grand­chil­dren and three great-grand­chil­dren. Born April 9, 1942, Vi­o­let lived her early years on Bell Is­land and in Por­tu­gal Cove, with her par­ents and 12 sib­lings. She mar­ried the love of her life, Harold, in 1960 and moved to Kil­bride, where they worked, raised their chil­dren and were ac­tive with their large ex­tended fam­ily and mul­ti­tude of friends. Al­ways ready for an ad­ven­ture, Vi­o­let and Harold spent the sec­ond half of their lives in Trouty, Trin­ity Bay, New­found­land. There, Vi­o­let con­tin­ued her de­vo­tion to her fam­ily, in­clud­ing keep­ing contact with her many sib­lings who lived across Canada. Vi­o­let de­vel­oped a pas­sion for knit­ting in the last years of her life and was fondly do­nat­ing her work to the Janeway Chil­dren’s Health and Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Cen­tre in St. John’s. A spe­cial thank you to Dr. Mar­shall God­win, CCFP, FCFP, for his care, thought­ful­ness and sup­port to the very end, and for the dear friendship with him and his wife Glenda. The fam­ily sin­cerely thanks their fam­ily and friends who were ever present with their thoughts, prayers and as­sis­tance, and for the vis­its with Vi­o­let at home. We will miss Vi­o­let dearly and al­ways love and cher­ish her. May she rest in peace.
