Violet BUSH

Bush; Violet Katerina

With much love and regret we announce the peaceful passing of Violet Katerina Bush (nee Enander) on Monday, November 17, 2014 in Chilliwack, BC at the grand age of 89. Vi was predeceased by her husband Major Lloyd Jack Bush, Queens Own Rifles, 2nd Battalion (ret.), her son Gregory, sisters Elsie, Marjorie, Betty and Hazel, and brother Bert. She is survived by her children Richard Bush and Kathryn Bush (Yvan Teasdale), grandchildren Katrina, Jacqueline, Adam, Christopher and Denis, great grandchildren Justin, Nicholas, Aiden and Sierra, and several nieces and nephews. Vi was a homemaker in the fullest sense of the word, an excellent baker and cook she dedicated herself to providing a loving home life for her family. Born October 18, 1925 in Roland, Manitoba, Vi was raised on the farm, and as a young woman worked in Winnipeg as a hired girl and at Harmon’s drugstore. Vi and Jack married in 1947. Her life experience then took her from country girl to the wife of a career army officer with all the moves, dress balls and parades that that entailed. While posted in Hemer, Germany, she camped all over Europe with her young family. She was an avid curler, golfer, loved playing and watching baseball and was an excellent stepper in her day. Vi was a loving, loyal, and a true lady of her generation. Family was of import to her and she always kept in touch with her 5 siblings and their families wherever life took her. Many thanks to the Fraser Health Authority Home Support and private workers who allowed Vi to stay in her own home. Remembrance services will take place in early summer 2015 in Winnipeg at a date to be announced. In lieu of flowers please donate to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Henderson’s Funeral Homes

& Crematorium in care of arrangements, 604-792-1344.
