VIOLET MYRTLE PRINGLE (HINCHEY)
October 3, 1925 – November 6, 2017
At home, with Norris by her side, Violet passed into the loving arms of Jesus.
Born to James and Jessie Hinchey, Violet was raised on her parent’s farm in Waskada, Manitoba.
Violet is survived by her husband of 68 years, Norris Pringle of Morden, daughter, Judy Pringle of Winnipeg, daughter, Janette Engen, and son-in-law, Dave Engen of Lethbridge, Alberta.
Violet pursued a teaching career and taught Grades 6, 7 and 8 in Manitou. Violet loved teaching, and throughout her life, spoke with great fondness of her students and her time as a teacher.
It was while teaching in Manitou that Violet met Norris. They were married on July 16, 1949. After their marriage they farmed together for ten years, and ultimately moved to Manitou where they owned and operated Pringle Insurance Agency. They worked side by side in business until their retirement in 1988.
Violet was a talented woman who willingly volunteered her gifts. She served as Worthy Matron and Grand Martha in the Order of the Eastern Star. She was a member of the Ladies Auxiliary to the Legion. She played the organ at St. John the Baptist Anglican Church, taught piano lessons, organized community concerts, and created beautiful salad bars for community dinners. After moving to Morden in 2001, Violet continued her volunteer activities, organizing banquets at the Friendship Centre. She was a member of St. Thomas Anglican Church in Morden.
Violet passed many happy hours in their garden, caring for her tea roses, and creating a showpiece of red geraniums on the front steps of their home. Perhaps her favourite hobby was her needlepoint, and her award-winning pieces adorn the homes of her family.
Violet and Norris hosted many happy times in their home, and Violet’s baking and meals were enjoyed by all. Gales of laughter from card games with friends and family, and sing-songs around the piano were always cadenced with her delicious culinary delights. Violet’s fresh biscuits were the best in the land.
Violet’s family was priority. She dearly loved her daughters and son-in-law, and was proud of their accomplishments. Violet and Norris were a team, as marriage partners, business partners, and parenting partners. Her love and devotion will remain cherished forever in our hearts.
What a rare find is a woman of
valour for she is far more
precious than rubies.
Many women hath done
nobly but thou hast
surpast them all.
verses 10 & 29
