Viola loved to travel and did so extensively with Mervin in the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and since. Viola was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and mother-in-law. She will be missed terribly. Our family’s deep thanks goes to the capable, caring nurses and doctors in the Intensive Care Unit of the Misericordia Hospital. As Viola wanted, cremation has taken place and no funeral or memorial service will be held. Should anyone wish, donations in her name can be made to a charity of choice.
