Vi was born on February 18, 1928 in Regina, SK. Her greatest loves were spending time with her family and friends, playing cards, music and traveling, including parasailing in Thailand. Her many interests included gardening, sewing, quilting and baking. She enjoyed participating in sports such as curling and softball in her younger years and then watching the Blue Jays and curling on TV in her later years. She never missed a hockey game of Ron and Ed's and this interest carried on to her grandchildren. Many evenings were spent working on crossword puzzles and watching Wheel of Fortune. Last week she celebrated a major milestone of her 27th anniversary of a kidney transplant.
A Memorial Service for Vi will be held on Saturday, November 10, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. from Creelman United Church, Creelman, SK with Rev. Ann White, officiating. Interment to follow at Golden Gates Cemetery, Creelman, SK.
