Viola Kerton

September 5, 1919 - May 16, 2011


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our sweet mother, Viola Kerton on May 16, 2011. Mom was born in Cumberland BC on September 5, 1919. She has gone to be with her husband of nearly 69 years, Gordon. She was a wonderful mother to her six children, Fran (Don) Hart, Judy Pederson, Fred, Pat (Sam) Salomi, Terry (Sandra), and Penny (Dan) Peters, and a loving grandmother to her many grand and great-grandchildren.
Mom overcame many obstacles in her lifetime, but always maintained her sense of humour and dignity. She made many dear friends over the years, both on Vancouver Island and in Powell River, and cherished them all. Some of her fondest memories were of years living in Rock Bay and her summers at the cabin on Powell Lake with family and friends. In their later years, Mom and Dad got the travelling bug and ventured to faraway lands such as Russia and China. Mom loved puttering in her garden, and, of course, the teapot was always on and the cards shuffled, ready for a game at any time. “Vi’s Casino” was always open.
A heart-felt thank you to all her “girls” at the Olive Devaud Sunshine Unit for the wonderful love and care given to Mom. She loved you all, and it meant so much to us. There will be no service by request.

“Shoot the Sherbert to Me, Herbert!”

We love you Mom – Kiss Dad for us!
