In memory of
MARY VIOLA GERALDINE WILLENBERG
MARY VIOLA GERALDINE WILLENBERG (née HOWARD) It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Viola (Vi) on Sunday, February 12, 2017. Beloved wife of Christopher Ronald (Ron) Willenberg. Daughter of Joseph Godfrey Robert (Jack) Howard and Dagmar Catherine Howard (née Williams). Sister of Elmo (Zinniah) Howard (deceased), Rosemarie (Tony) Fernando, Duff (Veronica) Howard and Fairlyn (Dudley) Dulling. Beloved Mum of Christopher, Warren and Joanna. Much loved Nana of Juliette. She was born in Colombo, Ceylon (Sri Lanka) on May 15, 1934. After qualifying as a Nurse in Ceylon, she left to further her nursing studies in England where she married, settled down and started a family. She had a busy life working as a Nurse, Midwife and Public Health Visitor. She and Ron eventually settled in Toronto, Canada where they raised their family. A kind, generous person with a huge heart, she loved a good joke, singing out loud to her favourite songs and had an infectious laugh. She also had a healing touch and exuded a genuine warmth that always made people feel loved. Vi had a strong, indomitable spirit and a keen artistic nature. She will be greatly missed by family and numerous friends scattered around the world. A private family ceremony will be held this week with a memorial service to follow in May.
