Born in Burford on St. Patrick's Day 1914, Violet played softball on the championship baseball team 'The Bluebirds' in 1930. In 1936, she graduated from McMaster University, the only female in the Math and Physics department. She would later teach at McMaster for 9 years but spent most of her career as a High School teacher. Violet carried herself with grace and dignity, but never shied away from showing her playful side. A teacher at heart, she shared her wisdom with others without pretense, and eagerly sought to expand her own knowledge daily. Her love of beauty and life touched everyone who knew her, and her energy and love will live on. The family thanks the 'Angels' of Hampton Terrace for their tender, loving care; their compassion for Violet will never be forgotten. Thanks, Violet, for your love and inspiration.
