Viola Ann LARSEN


Viola Ann


Vi, beloved wife of Vern Larsen passed away on the 6th of December, 2012 at the age of 70 years. Vi was born on December 3, 1942 in Innisfail, AB. She lived her entire life in the Caroline community, attending school, marrying Vernon Larsen of Kevisville in 1960 and raising her three children. She was an active business partner to Vern in their various ventures. After the children moved away, she upgraded her education and became town librarian. She was a founding member of, and driving force behind, the Caroline Historical Society. Vi was keenly interested in history, both of others and her own family. She honoured the memories of her parents and other early members of the community by her dedicated work at the museum. Her greatest accomplishments were her three children, and then her grandchildren. We are privileged to have her example to lead us now that she is no longer here in person. Vi is survived by her beloved husband, Vern, her daughter, Cindy, son, Darcy and spouse, Kate, and daughter-in-law, Lauren, her cherished grandchildren; Whitney, Caitlin, Natalie, Matthew, Peter and Evan, her sisters; Lula Mills and Ruth Johnson and her brother, Earl Graham and their families, and by her husband’s large extended family. She was predeceased by her son, Stacy in 2011, and is joyfully reunited with him. A Celebration of Life for the late Viola Larsen will be held on Thursday, December 13, 2012 at the Caroline Church of the Nazarene at 2:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Vi’s honour may be made directly to the Caroline Wheels of Time Museum. Condolences for the late Viola Larsen may be forwarded to the family by visiting
