Violet May Powell

Violet May Powell

March 14, 1935 – September 28, 2014

Violet was born and raised in Victoria BC. It was there that she met Edward who has now shared 57 years of marriage! Even though Violet completed nursing training in Victoria she decided to dedicate her life to her husband and their children: Patricia Powell, Lorraine Brown and Ted Powell.

Wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother (ggma), sister, aunt and friend; we will miss your love and affection, your nursing, your friendship, your wisdom, your strength, courage and steadfast faith, your artistry, your leadership and guidance, your hugs and kisses and so much more.

Violet is survived by her husband Edward, her children and their spouses: Patricia and Wanda, Lorraine and Ken, Ted and Sheila along with her brother and sister-in law: Ted and Fran, her grandchildren: Virginia, Eddy, April, Matt and Brianne, her great grandson: Cyprus and her nieces and nephew: Manda, Katrina, Aaron and Susan.

A service to honour Violet’s life and memory followed by a tea will be taking place on Saturday, October 4, 2014, 4pm at Courtenay Foursquare Church: 1640 Burgess Road, Courtenay, B.C.

In lieu of flowers our family gratefully requests cash donations to the soup and sandwich ministry of Courtenay Foursquare Church.
