Viola, Secretary

Delight Maker Elder, at the age of 90, Vi has as much, if not more, delight making capacity as the rest of us put together, dedicating at least one hour a day to singing and dancing.

At 90 she not been through life without experiencing a few challenges and has embraced the ups and downs of a healthy long life. She is a widow, after 60 years of marriage, she has had to let go of three sisters and one brother, and perhaps the hardest of all was the loss of her best friend and daughter, Nina, through Motor Neuron Disease. However, she still remains an incurable romantic with a strong intention to seize each day. She also grabs any opportunity she can to travel, especially if it’s Paris.

She holds a wealth of memories and anecdotes on life and passes on passionately the wisdoms of her parents, grandparents and teachers. She is highly creative, artistic and a great storyteller.

Within the team Vi is a provider of good council and sound perspective. She states quite simply that “there is not enough light in this world” and she wags her finger to reprimand anybody who wastes life in self pity and negativity, pointing to the abundant beauty to be seen all around with the good old fashioned reminder of “count your blessings”.
