SOUTHERN, Violet October 31, 1918 to June 9, 2014 It is with great sadness we announce the death of our beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother. Vi Southern passed away peacefully on June 9th 2014 in Victoria, she was 95. Vi and Ron (predeceased in 1991) emigrated from England to Victoria in 1957 with their children, Dave and Pam. They enjoyed a good life in their adopted country. Vi gave back to her community through her many volunteer activities, she set an excellent example for her children. Her great passion was photography, she had a marvelous eye for composition. She will be greatly missed by Dave, Pam (Doug), Vashti, Brendan (Clare), Nahanni, Evan (Amy) and Lexi. We were all blessed by her love, support and generosity. There will be a family celebration of her life. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Vi's name to the Alzheimer Society or a charity of your choice.
