It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beautiful and beloved mother and sister Violet “Peanut” Elliott. She is predeceased by her mother Martha (2016) and father George (2009), and former mother-in-law and friend Gwen (2016). She is survived by her loving sons John and Travell; her siblings Carmen (Dale), Raymond, Travis, Mark (Audra), Margo & Marium (Aynk), and her uncle Johnny who was more like her big brother; her adoring grandchildren Mckayla, Markus, Cristian, Lee, Vanessa, Taevein, Kai, Terrance, Jewell, Dorihan, Adrian, and Teghan “TeeTee”; and her special friend and love Gordon. She is also survived by her extended family Twyla, Crystal, Krystal and Tina; nieces, nephews: Randy, Robert, Richard, Brandon, Jasmine, Makai and Naomi. She will be fondly remembered by her grand-nieces & nephews, a host of cousins, aunts, uncles and many, many friends. She was a dedicated and long-time employee of the Holiday Inn. Peanut had a larger than life personality, one of the funniest people you would ever meet. She was guaranteed to put a smile on your face. ALWAYS. Her loud presence was her calling card and we loved her for that. She loved her family dearly and always looked forward to all of our gatherings. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her. Peanut was our light, the life of the party, our friend. We love you, we will miss you and you will never be forgotten. If you so desire, donations to the Ontario Heart & Stroke Foundation would be appreciated. Visiting Monday 3-5pm and 7-9pm.
