Obituary for Violet Antoniuk (Fischer)

It is with great sadness that we share the loss of our dear mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, sister, and aunt. Violet leaves to mourn her daughters, Cheryl Lewis (Robert) and Laurie Blaney (Reg) as well as her beloved granddaughters, Carrie Lewis, Kristi Lewis, Jillian Frankson (Ryan) and Paige Blaney (Kyle Brown). She is survived by two sisters, Alice Heinrich and Anne Durr, and many nieces and nephews. Violet was predeceased by her husband of sixty years, Donald, as well as six brothers and two sisters.
Violet was a remarkable person who was truly a modern woman. She grew up in tough times on a farm near Golden Prairie and later moved to Medicine Hat to attend secondary school. Vi was an excellent student and excelled in her studies and sports. Lack of funds did not permit the fulfillment of her dream of becoming a teacher. Instead, after marriage, Vi worked full time as a bookkeeper for various dairies while raising two daughters to become independent women. She instilled in them a hard work ethic and a love of learning; with her support always a constant, both became teachers. An excellent cook, Vi made home-cooked meals and baked pies that were the envy of the town of Redcliff. She hosted family and friends for every holiday occasion. Her house was always meticulous as were her large vegetable gardens and flower beds. She like to read mysteries and watch curling and hockey and to play cards; she travelled extensively while good health permitted. Violet was a very sociable person who loved to chat. Parties, music, and dancing filled Saturday nights. She and her sisters, all with beautiful voices, sang like angels, harmonizing as their brothers played musical instruments. For the last three years, her favourite evenings at the Wellington were spent listening to old time bands that played for the residents. When her granddaughters were born, Vi’s heart blossomed with her love for them and continued to grow as they did. She cuddled and coddled them from cradle to grown young ladies. Their best memories include visits to grandpa’s and grandma’s house. A private celebration of Violet’s life will be held at al later date. Donations in Violet’s name may be made to the charity of your choice. Condolences may be sent to subject heading Violet Antoniuk.
