As expressions of sympathy, in lieu of flowers, donations to the West Parry Sound Health Centre, (Palliative Care), would be appreciated.


We knew Violet & the Fisher family all our lives and had some great times with them.
We all must go sometime, but it is never nice.


Vi and Lorne were very much the part of our family of Littles at the farm when we would get together to play music and I got to stay with them for 2 seasons when I was in High school. Vi was so good to me. I'll always remember them with love.

I worked with Vi in the OR for 10 years! She was a hard and very dedicated worker. We had a lot of fun…back in those days. She was truly dedicated to Travis and spoke of him often and with great pride. Vi deserved the best, she was a wonderful and kind person

I so remember her being there to care for me with Dr. Woodhouse to deliver my oldest daughter Tiffany. Very fond memories growing up as a child going to their house and Uncle Lornie playing the banjo.
