November 4, 1910 – May 27, 2010
It is with sadness that the family of Violet Sarah Campbell announces the passing of their mom, grandma, great-grandma, and great great-grandma on Thursday, May 27, 2010 at the age of 99 years.
Violet was born and raised in Edmonton, AB where she spent her happy carefree childhood. Violet completed her education at the Old Jasper Place School and then went on to the Edmonton Commercial Business School where she played basketball on the team known as the Edmonton Grads, coached by Percy Page. Violet worked for a few years and then married Colin Campbell. Together they raised four children mostly in the area of Edmonton known as Westgrove, later moving to Calgary in the late fifties. When Colin retired, they both enjoyed going to the Valley for most of the summer months. Violet loved gardening and reading, and enjoyed baseball, especially the Blue Jays.
