Violet Ursula Walwyn left me with one feeling. "I want to be a better person'. Click picture (twice) to see the complete funeral service on YOUTUBE.


Peacefully, on Saturday, February 10, 2018 in her 84th year, surrounded by her children. She was predeceased by her beloved husband of 50 years, St. Clair; her mother, Miriam Stanley; her father, Carl Anslyn; her sister, Keturah Trotman; and her brother, Arthur Anslyn. She was the proud mother of Colleen Richmond (David), Carl (Andrea Pappas), Julie Walwyn-Tross (Rodolfo Tross), Frank, Michael (Ashi), Donna, Nydia (Lyriq Bent), and Brian. She is survived by her sister, Dr Bronte Gonsalves; her grandchildren, Richard, Jordan, Nile, Brook, Dr Loren Walwyn-Tross (Danielle Jackson), Brandon Tross, Erica Tross (Andre), Matthew, Chelsea, Madison and Tyler Henry, Jahthane and Keegan Walwyn-Bent; cousins; nieces and nephews; and a community of beloved friends. Funeral services were held on February 15, 2018, and Violet was laid to rest at Glendale Cemetery next to her husband, St. Clair Walwyn. In memory of Violet, donations can be made to the Mississauga Seventh-day Adventist Church, 2250 Credit Valley Rd., Mississauga, Ontario, Canada L5M 4L9, for the specific purpose of advancing and expanding the Seniors Ministry/Seniors' Club. Funeral arrangements were entrusted to the New Haven Funeral Centre Inc.


Just because it's no longer in the news does NOT mean that the residents are not still hurting. Thanks Akilah and Cassandra, for bringing this to my attention. The concept of donating seeds to help replenish the 'Fruit Basket of the Caribbean' is BRILLIANT. Guys . . . please help this worthy cause. You will become a better 'you'.
