Viola Marriott

September 23, 1926 - March 8, 2015

Tribute

Viola passed away on Sunday, her favorite day of the week, March 8th at Oliver Hospital.

A Celebration of Life will take place at Park Drive Church, 6570 Park Drive, on Saturday, March 14, 2015 at 11 am. There will be a light lunch following. Interment at Bridesville Cemetery at 3 pm with a tea following at approximately 3:45 pm at the Bridesville Community Hall.

Viola was predeceased by her devoted husband, Horace in 2007 and is survived by 4 children, Ron, Joyce, Ivor & Anita, 5 grandchildren, 2 step-grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren, many nieces, nephews, brother Merle Hanson, and sister Helen DeWitte.

Viola was born in Red Deer Alberta where her family farmed. Due to her father's poor health she was required to work on the farm creating a life long aversion to farming. At age 18, she moved with her family to Sidley, BC beginning her life adventures including housekeeping and working in the bakery in Osoyoos. She attended Bible College in Victoria graduating from a 2 year program as Valedictorian.

Viola then returned to Bridesville, marrying Horace Marriott. They resided in Bridesville for over 60 years where they raised their 4 children, being heavily involved in church and community activities. She was ready to pray, preach or sing at any time. She was known far and wide for her cooking and award winning baking 'blessing many with her gift of hospitality. She sewed for both practical purposes as well as a hobby. Painting became her post retirement hobby.

 

When the drive down the hill became too much, Viola and Horace relocated to Oliver where their hospitality continued. Viola always greeted new people and took an interest in their lives. She tried to keep up with activities in the spheres of her family, neighbors, church family, missionaries, community and world events. She read widely, listened to news items and would share scriptural insights.

Viola loved people and people returned the love. She will be missed by many.

Special thanks to all those who provided care and kindness to our mother.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to Oliver Gleaners or Gideon's Bible Society.
