Violet Winnifred Constance

Fondly referred to as Hattie, beloved daughter of Fred and Alice Whittemore; passed away quietly in her sleep on June 27, 2012. The eldest daughter, she was born on October 31, 1912 in a large house on 55 Street in Red Deer. Her older brother Frank, and her younger siblings Ruth, Tom, Bill and Ada remained Hattie’s dear friends for her almost 100 year life span. In 1914 the family moved to their homestead where she rode horse back, four and a half miles to attend Valley Center School. Her next move saw her at her Uncle Tom’s homestead and then the Heaman farm where she completed grade eight at Hillsdown. For graduation; from her Dad she received a Brownie Box camera which she treasured all of her days. At the end of grade nine she stayed home to help with chores and worked out bringing in a wage of 15 dollars per month. In 1935 she married Albert Joseph Moschenross and moved to his farm at Pine Lake. The couple had three daughters; Margaret born 1936; passed away in 1997. Evelyn born in 1944; passed away in 1969. Isabel born in 1944. Hattie was blessed with seven grandchildren and twelve great grandchildren. She is survived by her brother Bill, her sister Ada, her daughter Isabel and all of her immediate as well as her large extended family which include all of Albert’s family.
