The Lester family moved to Vancouver where Violet attended school and met her future husband; Alan Davis. They were married on October 23, 1937 in Vancouver. Alan served in the RCAF in WWII and then went to school to be a sheet metal journeyman. Violet was a stay at home Mom who raised her four children; Alice Grover of Eugene Oregon, Victor (Laurie) Davis of Ladysmith, Kenneth (Anne) Davis of North Delta and S. Lee Davis of Surrey; seven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. In 1968 they retired and moved to Ladysmith.

“Her family was everything to her.”

Violet enjoyed her Parkhill Terrace neighbors, gardening, lots of arts and crafts, petit point pictures for all her children which are wonderful. Every year she knitted sweaters for all the grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
