<div itemprop="description">Violet was born on February 26, 1926 and passed away on Saturday, January 21, 2017. <br><br>She was predeceased by her husband John; parents William and Polly; sisters Anne and Kelly; and brother Dale. <br><br>Violet is survived by her children Jim (Anne Marie), Cindy (Clem) and Roy (Theresa); seven grandchildren Leah (Tyler), Josh, Lindsay (Jaret), Jason, Matt, Jillian (Mike) and Sarah (Brandon); 13 great grandchildren; sisters Aggie and Kathy; and several nieces, nephews and countless special friends. <br><br>The last meal has been cooked. The dishes are put away and the house is tidy. Mom has left to join Dad. She’s left us. Moms aren’t supposed to leave their children. We are children whether we are 6 or 60 and now what every child never wants to see happen…has. Mom could be counted on in many ways. <br><br>She was always there and always responded to our needs and wants with love. She made sure no one was hungry, she was great at finding solutions and always had something in a drawer that would help. She would offer rides, or if you drove yourself, she would give you directions and call ahead to make sure that wherever you were going was open. She would always inquire on how things were going with genuine interest. She would never judge and the closest to disagreement she would voice was “how come you’re doing that?” leaving us unsure if she agreed or was simply curious. <br><br>Mom was constant in her love and reliable in her habits. We knew she would say yes to a family occasion, that she really wanted to attend concerts or anything her children/grandchildren/great grandchildren were involved with. <br><br>She would save newspaper clippings, she would prepare her television watching schedule, she would scratch her lottery tickets, play TV bingo and to live it up would go to the Vegas bingo halls. <br><br>Each of us has a special memory of how her predictability would have us feel safe and assured. The woman we counted on to be there is now gone. We are left with her legacy of love and caring. That’s what she did and thrived on…caring. <br><br>Her selfless actions through her life reminds us of a prayer. Mom lived that prayer. And the prayer goes like this:<br>Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,<br>where there is hatred, let us sow love;<br>where there is injury, pardon;<br>where there is despair, hope;<br>where there is darkness, light;<br>where there is sadness, joy;<br>O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;<br>to be understood as to understand;<br>to be loved as to love.<br>For it is in giving that we receive;<br>it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;<br>and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.<br><br>Our tribute to her is practicing the lessons she has taught us. Mom…you will be profoundly missed.<br><br>A FUNERAL SERVICE will be held at Regina Funeral Home and Cemetery, 4001 East Victoria Avenue, Regina, SK on. Thursday, January 26, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. <br><br>Donations in memory of Violet may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 1910 McIntyre Street, Regina, SK S4P 2R3. <br><br>Arrangements entrusted to Regina Funeral Home and Cemetery (306) 789-8850. <br></div>
