HOWARTH, Viola Muriel (nee Cornwall) Born December 24, 1917 Died May 29, 2007, Ottawa, Ontario. Her beloved husband, Bill, having died on May 9, 2007, Viola left to join him and celebrate their 65th anniversary together. She will be greatly missed by her children and their spouses, Lynda (Jim Rainboth), Rick (Fay Booker) and Tom (Leslie Faraday), her grandchildren Bill and Laura Rainboth (Shawn Gilbert), Heather Faraday (Boyd Keller), Jason, Dominic (Larisa), Sarah (Markku Heino), Cathy, Vicky (Andy Devolin), Krista and Cameron Cassidy and her great-grandchildren Jacob, Emma and Wyatt Keller, Mikko Heino and Lillian Devolin. Survived by her sisters-in-law Muriel Cornwall (Joe) and Patricia (Stuart Williamson) of Seattle and by several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her sisters Agnes (Jim Landry) and Rita (Leonard Craig), her brother Joe (Muriel Cornwall) and her granddaughter Julia. Viola enjoyed life. Along the way she made and kept numerous friends of all ages, from Eileen Nichols in grade one, Helen Brennan in high school, right up to her stay ay Queensway-Carleton Hospital where her roommate Sandra O'Brien was so kind to her. During her early years, she lived and went to school in the St. Anthony's Church area at 807 Gladstone Avenue. Family years at 119 Irving Avenue in St. Mary's Parish gave way to downsizing at 3100 Carling Avenue, then Ambleside II and in 2003, to Central Park Lodge in Our lady of Fatima Parish. Throughout the years there were card games with friends, the CWL, Women of St. Anne, family vacations, dieting, exercising, Lake Clear, Thomas (the cat), Mitzie and Trixie (the dogs), square-dancing, bottling wine, the Casino, bumper pool, the cottage on the Clyde River, children, graduations, weddings and grandchildren. Viola worked in the Federal Government during the war years and after marrying Bill in 1942 and starting a family, she eventually went back to work part time at the then Canadian Figure Skating association (now Skate Canada) for Charlie Cummings. She joined the Federal Government's Centennial Commission to help prepare for 1967 celebrations and then went on to Heritage Sites Canada. Viola loved to travel and over the years she and Bill were in England, Ireland, Wales, Spain, Portugal, Florida, Las Vegas, Atlantic City, cruises and to many other Canadian and US destinations. Their favourite place was Barbados and they went there for various lengths of time every year for over 25 years. It was a wonderful time where many good friends were made, parties attended, rumoli games and slot machines played, ocean swims taken, rum punch made and consumed, family and friends visited, flying fish and rotis eaten and much dancing to the Merrymen. Viola was always ready to go on the next adventure and her lively, loving spirit will be missed by family and friends. Many thanks to their friends and the caring staff at Central Park Lodge. Thank you also to the staff, clergy and volunteers at Queensway-Carleton Hospital, Retire-At-Home Services and Father John DeCoste for his many visits and blessings. Friends may pay respects at the Kelly Funeral Home 2313 Carling Avenue (west of Carlingwood) Sunday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. Funeral Monday to Our Lady of Fatima Church for Mass of Christian Funeral at 10:30 a.m. Interment Capital Memorial Gardens. Donations may be made to the Ottawa Regional Cancer Centre Foundation or the Queensway-Carleton Hospital Foundation. Published in the Ottawa Citizen from 6/1/2007 - 6/3/2007
