Violet was an avid gardener. The best cook, she loved to cook each family member their favourite dish. Violet was a real social butterfly; she enjoyed working, in her retirement, for Super Draft, Heather’s Corner, Ed’s Prairie Treasures, Blizzard Junction and Cindy’s Confectionary.
Violet was a devoted member of St. Andrew’s Parish, from taking pies to the fall supper to crocheting edges on the altar cloths. She also enjoyed serving as Eucharistic minister.
Violet was always on the go in her community of Kenaston. She volunteered lots. Everyone knew her and her little dog, Pogo.
With all that said, most important to her was the love for all her family.
The Mass of Christian Burial was held Saturday, October 28, 2017 at the St. Andrew’s Catholic Church with Fr. Madonna-Godwin Aghedo O.P. officiating. Rite of committal was held at St. Andrew’s Cemetery.
Memorial donations in Violet’s memory can be made to St. Andrew’s Building Fund. Funeral arrangements entrusted to Hanson’s Funeral Home.
