Violet Holowinski

February 14, 1923 — February 2, 2022

February 14, 1923 ~ February 2, 2022

On a cold crispy morning, our beautiful mother Violet slipped away in the comfort of her home, surrounded by the love of her family, just the way she wanted it. Mom was two weeks shy of her 99th birthday.

She will be lovingly remembered by her son George (Gisele), her daughter Wendy (Robert), her ten grands, Dan (Sarah), Vincent (Dana), Jordan (Kay), Amber (Darren), Holly (Victor), Troy, Shayla (Daniel), Shawn (Connie), Carena (Jay), and Kyle, her precious great grands, Justyn, Cameron, Emily, Maria, Sierra, Evan, Malakai, Caspian, Charlie, Violet, Paisley, Nash, Rhett, Wyatt and baby coming in March. Mom is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews whom she loved very much.

Mom was predeceased by her beloved husband George, her daughters Carol and Sherry, her son-in-law Bob, her parents George and Beatrice, her siblings Ron (Evelyn), Raymond (Ruby), Clement (Vi), and Triss, her partner Larry Francis who was a wonderful companion for her and nieces Noreen Rowland, Valerie Holowinski, Barbara Brown, and Patricia Stefaniuk.

Mom was born in St Ouens, MB into a loving family many of whom came over from England. She was a loving, kind-hearted mother, nana and great nana not only to us, but with her welcoming and warm caring nature easily made others feel part of the family. She touched the hearts of many who often also considered her a second mom, a nana or a special friend. She always showed concern for others, putting their needs first. She was a great cook and baker, especially her homemade bread and doughnuts. No one could leave her place hungry. Even at 98, she amazed us with her tremendous memory.

Mom was always appreciative and felt blessed to have family helping her in her aging years and especially for the tender care she received this past month from family members and her fabulous homecare workers, which enabled her to stay in her home.  To Barb, Treasure, Doug, Sheri, Janice, Heather and many others, know that mom was always grateful for all you did for her, even though she could get a bit feisty and stubborn at times. Thank you!

Mom, you will be dearly missed and never forgotten!
