Violet Voje (Erickson)
May 10, 1932 – March 7, 2024


Violet Voje (Erickson) of Rocky Mountain House went home to be with her Lord on March 7, 2024, at the age of 91.

Vi was born May 10, 1932, at Ashmont, Alta., to Carl and Julia Erickson. She was raised on the family farm and attended school at Duck Lake School. Later, Vi left for Edmonton where she spent the next 12 years working at Swift Canadian. After that she worked in an office at Beaver Lumber for a few years. When she left Beaver Lumber, she took training for certified nursing aide, and after completing her course, she was employed at Glenrose Rehab Hospital. She really loved her work there!!
Vi and Norman were married in 1971. They moved to Fargo, N.D. Vi continued working at a care centre in that city and Norm was a truck driver. He was later offered a job at Trimac Trucking, so they moved to Edmonton and made their home there until 1994. When Norman retired, they moved to Rocky Mountain House and did a lot of camping. They also wintered a few years in Arizona.

Among her many interests were sewing, knitting, baking, travelling, camping and playing her guitar. She enjoyed getting together with her friends whenever the opportunity arose for sing-songs and music jams. She loved gospel and country songs.

Vi was preceded in death by her parents, husband (Norman), brothers (Obed, Milo and Ed), sisters (Esther and Clarice), two brothers-in-law (Henry Olson and Elder Danielson), sisters-in-law (Muriel, Laura, Olga).

She is survived by many nieces, nephews and friends.
