Viola T. Maitre (Morin) of Lincoln, formerly of Utica, Michigan went to her heavenly home on January 28, 2024.
Viola first came into this world one of 4 children born to Albertina and Herman Bischoff on August 6, 1930 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
Viola attended the Winnipeg School for the Deaf.
Viola met and married Ray Morin and they moved to California to start their married life. They eventually moved to Lincoln to raise their children Darlene and Raymond Jr. After a long marriage, Viola and Ray parted ways and Viola moved back to Winnipeg with her son Raymond where she eventually met and married Ernest Maitre. Viola and her son moved to Detroit to live with her new husband and after many years of marriage, the Lord left her a widow and she eventually came back to Lincoln to live with her daughter.
Viola enjoyed cooking and baking all kinds of goodies to share with family and friends, sewing and crafting of all kinds including making many beautiful macramé and needlepoint items to give to family and friends. Viola also attended the deaf club to socialize with other deaf people and loved playing cards and board games. She especially enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren and teaching them sign language in her later years. Viola was a loving Christian and a true angel in disguise considering some of the hardships she sometimes had to endure. She never gave up and she even went without sometimes to make sure her children were provided for from infancy to adulthood and even beyond.
Those saddened and left to cherish many memories with Viola are her daughter Darlene Chin, Lincoln; Ray (Tina) Morin of Utica, Michigan; her grandsons Josh and Jeremy Kennell, great grandchildren Annysia, Zach, Jaydn, Ellyna, Emberlyn, Kyson, Breccan, Sienna and many relatives and friends.
A Celebration of Life for family and friends will be held at a later time in the spring.
