Viola was a highly regarded founding member of the Ontario Finnish Resthome Association. She will be remembered for her fundraising, hosting events and bringing peace and level headedness to meetings. This was close to her heart.
Viola loved to be surrounded by family. She was happy to have everyone gather together over a hot meal, especially her grandchildren. She enjoyed spending her summer at her cottage with the “Haviland Gang”. She was a special friend and neighbour to Shirley and Dave Bertelsen.
