Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free,
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard his call,
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I've found that peace at the close of the day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My Life's been full, I savoured much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch,
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now, He set me free.

Viola (Vi) was born on Sunday, April 28, 1935 on the farm near Dorintosh, SK. to parents Henry and Marie Voth. She was the second oldest in a family of 6 siblings, Allan, Vi, Russel, Whileen, Bill and Jerry. She enjoyed school and helped her parents with the daily chores and raising her younger siblings. She was active in church and joined Whileen and Bill in some musical numbers. Vi’s ambition was to be a pharmacist and fulfilled her dream when she worked at Kroll’s Drugstore in Meadow Lake, SK. She then met Nelson Shrigley, a young mechanic from Loon River and soon after were married. Together, they started a family and managed the Texaco Service Station in Meadow Lake until they moved to their new farm 10 miles east of Meadow Lake. Nelson and Vi had 3 beautiful children, Perry, Cory and Tammy, who kept her very busy during those years on the farm. Aside from all the responsibilities of a young mom and wife, Vi found some “me” time for baking, sewing, ceramics and serving at the M.B. church as Sunday School superintendent, among many other acts of service that blessed others. Vi managed the books for the farm and family business Shrigley Transport and also enjoyed her employment at Sears and the local stock yards in Meadow Lake. In 1994, Nelson and Vi made a decisive move to Medicine Hat, AB, where they resided until 2020. During this time, they renovated their house that overlooked the valley and operated several highway trucks, travelling as far as Florida and Alaska. Vi enjoyed many hours reading, coffees with friends and traveling with Nelson many, many miles together on the road, either in their Peterbilt, motorhome, or back and forth either to visit their farm, grandkids or family. She always looked forward to their next adventure, visit or celebration with her children and grandkids, Austin, Madison, Jeremiah, Joel and Jadyn. Throughout the years, Vi has always had a quiet & bold faith and love in Jesus Christ, selflessly loving and serving her family and others. In the spring of 2020, Vi and Nelson moved back to Saskatchewan, to the town of Dalmeny, with their little dogs, Misty and Zoe.
