Violet Cooper

November 23, 1924 – December 13, 2019
Violet Cooper, Lacombe resident since 1960, passed to her rest at the Lacombe Hospital on December 13, 2019 – three weeks past her 94th birthday. Violet was born on November 23, 1925 to Fred and Emily Boschee living in the Robinson District of southeastern Alberta. She was the seventh of eight children in this family. Violet married Charles Cooper in 1945. They, with their five children, moved from their farm in Irvine, Alberta to an acreage just north of Lacombe in order for their children to attend a Seventh-Day Adventist school. Violet owned and operated Manna Mart, a health food and Christian bookstore, in Lacombe for 15 years.
Violet is survived by one brother Edgar Boschee of Medicine Hat; her children Stan (Connie), Lowell (Rae), Desmond (Trudi), Karen Hawes (Brian), and Kathy Patterson (Lee); her nine grandchildren; and ten great- grandchildren.
Violet’s family extends their gratitude to Dr. Keller and the Lacombe Hospital nursing staff for their excellent and compassionate care during Violet’s hospitalization. Appreciation also goes to Pastor Jeff Potts and the pastoral team of College Heights Seventh-Day Adventist Church for their ministry to Violet and the family.
A Memorial Service will be held at 2 pm on Friday, December 20, 2019 at the Ponoka Funeral Home. The Funeral Service will be live streamed on YouTube (search Violet Cooper Funeral).
