Violet May Fairbairn

December 3, 1918 - January 21, 2017


December 3, 1918 – January 21, 2017

At the age of 98, Violet Fairbairn passed away suddenly in the home she shared with family.  Predeceased by her husband, Alex, and her two oldest children—Joyce McEown and Alan Fairbairn, she was the last remaining sibling of nine, as she left this world in peace. 

Violet leaves behind surviving family:  Barbara Ouellette, Don and Sharon Fairbairn and Nancy Fairbairn, all of Powell River.  She also leaves grandchildren Maureen, Tim and Pat McEown, Doug and Glenda Fairbairn, Dean and Guy Ouellette and Michelle Alston, and David and Cathy Fairbairn.  She has five great grandchildren and one great-great grandchild.  She will be in the hearts of many nieces and nephews who knew her loving spirit, as well as friends-new and lifelong-who will miss her dearly.

She was one of a kind—a soul with great and enduring love for her family and a kind and welcoming spirit for all.  Her love of children and animals, quick wit and zest for life were evident every day, as was her quiet assertion that she could still think for herself. 

The Toronto Blue Jays, Saskatchewan Roughriders, Vancouver Canucks and other Canadian athletes have lost a wise advisor and staunch supporter who will be hard to replace. 

At Violet’s request, there will be no memorial service at this time.  In lieu of flowers for the family, we ask that those wishing to pay tribute make a donation to a charity of their choice or remember her by an act of kindness to someone in need.
