VIOLET SCHICK (LeClair, Grouette) November 21, 1945 – August 5, 2020 After a brief illness and surrounded by her children, Violet passed away peacefully on August 5th. Violet was predeceased by her daughter Barbara (Barry), her brothers Bing and Billy and her longtime companion Ernie Labovich. She is survived by her sisters Anne, Eleanor & Geraldine, daughters Charlotte (Mark), Brenda (Wes), Laura (Marc) and son Willie (Lisa). She is also survived by eleven grand-children and thirteen great grand-children as well as numerous nieces and nephews and her very special friend, Dave Corcoran. Violet was born and raised in Winnipeg. After raising a family she went to work as a photo-copy operator for 16 years at Manitoba Telephone System. Upon her retirement she volunteered at Winnipeg Harvest as well as the North End Women's Centre (The Up Shoppe) on Selkirk Avenue. Violet loved to shop and always thought of others when doing so. If she saw a bargain that she thought you needed, she would buy it or, at the very least, tell you about it. If you needed something maybe a little hard to find, tell Violet and the search would be on. Violet loved to travel (and shop). She was able to go to London, England, Paris, France and Australia. Over the years she made vacation trips to Arizona, Texas and Mexico and had a ball sampling the local cuisine, seeing the local sights and just interacting with people. Violet loved to just socialize with friends and family with a happiness that was contagious. One of her favorite past times was playing cards, especially with her children and grand-children. She also had hugs for everyone whether or not you knew you needed one. Cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life will be held at Kildonan Park, 2015 Main Street, Winnipeg in the Deer and Fox shelters at 1:00 p.m., Tuesday, August 11th, 2020. Social distancing and face coverings are encouraged. Please bring your own lawn chairs.
