It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Violet Elsie Kriger (Litke) in the early hours of December 2, 2022 at the age of 91. Mom was born to Gottlieb and Wanda Litke on September 5, 1931 in New Sarepta, Alberta.
In April 1947, at a tender young age, she met the love of her life, Gary Kriger. They were married on January 9, 1948. This union was blessed with 5 children, 15 grandchildren, 28 great-grands, 1 great-great grandchild and another baby due in February. Mom helped dad with the farming chores, harvest, grew a huge garden and did an amazing job of raising their 5 children.
From the farm Gary and Vi moved to Preeceville when dad spread his wings and went into the John Deere business. After moving to Yorkton, living there a few years, they went to The Bentley in 2017. In September, 2021, due to mom needing more care, they moved to The Gladstone Seniors Residence where they resided till dad's passing in January and mom's recent passing.
