MACIVER, Violet Francis
The Cape Breton Post, October 10, 2006
It is with great sorrow, but with thanksgiving, that
we announce the death of our mother and grandmother, Violet Francis
who died at Victoria County Memorial Hospital on Oct. 8, 2006 with
her family at her side. Born in Harbour Grace, N.L. in
1918, she was the daughter of the late James Kenneth and Mary Grace (Budden)
Francis. She came to Cape Breton with her family at an early age. She grew
up in Glace Bay and later in Hazeldale, Victoria County. She worked in
Little Narrows and the Sydney area for many years before returning to Hazeldale
and marrying Jimmy (John E) MacIver and raising her family on the MacIver
homestead in South Cove. A final move brought her to Little Narrows where
she enjoyed life in the "old manse" for the last 38 years of her life.
She was predeceased by her husband, James Colin (Jimmy) in 1969; sisters,
Blanch, Shirley, Lil, Betty, Clemantine, Rita, Gladas, and one brother,
Dolland. She is survived by daughters, Doris (Ken) Boyd, Boisdale, Margaret
(Rob), Martin, Hatchet Lake and sons, Rev. Colin, Winnipeg, David (Linda)
Coxheath, and John (Linda), Little Narrows, and two sisters, Mable MacDonald
and Claras Dean, both of Glace Bay. Also surviving are 13 grandchildren
and two great-grandchildren.
She was a very resourceful person and a
creative artist in cloth, thread and yarn. Her quilts and other handcrafts
are legacies left to her family and friends. Avid reading took her on
journeys over time and around the world, so boredom was unknown to her.
She was a member of Little Narrows Presbyterian Church where she taught
Sunday School, lead CGIT and was active in Womens Missionary Society and
the Ladies Aid Society.
Visitation will be at the Dennis Haverstock Funeral
Home in Whycocomagh today (Tuesday) from 2-9 p.m. Funeral service will
