Violet Alice Thomsen
March 28, 1939 – September 4, 2018
It is with great sadness we say goodbye to our dear Mom, Amma, Long Amma, Aunty and friend, Violet Thomsen, at the Arborg Hospital, at the age of 79 years.
Mom is survived by her daughter Margo (Brian); son Todd (Cynthia); daughter-in-law Laurie; grandchildren Matthew, Brent, Mark, Malorie, Nathan, Drew, Brooke and great-grandson Emmet. She also leaves to mourn her sister Barb Halyk; sister-in-law Sylvia Renaud; sister-in-law Rose Kleb; brother-in-law Buck Kleb, and numerous nieces and nephews who were proud to call her Aunty. Mom was predeceased by her husband Marus; sons Dwayne and Marlowe; granddaughters Jessica Dawn and Jamie Lynn.
Violet was born and raised in Riverton, MB, she was married for 51 years prior to Dad’s passing. Mom was generous and giving to her family, she loved having them to visit and spoiled her grandchildren to no end. More recently having her great-grandson Emmet come to visit brought her such happiness. Prior to becoming ill Mom was an avid gardener she loved her flowers and would spend hours in her gardens. She enjoyed watching her grandsons play hockey and granddaughters volleyball. Mom had a full life she was able to travel, was blessed with many friends, and will be remembered for her wicked sense of humor. We will always cherish our memories of Mom, she will be missed greatly. A special thank you to all of the staff at the Arborg Personal Care Home, it was comforting to know she was well cared for.
As per Mom’s wishes a private interment will take place at a later date.
Flowers are gratefully declined and donations may be made to Riverton- Hnausa Lutheran Church.
We will love and miss you always.
