A memorial service will be held for Violet Olson at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, 12/21/19 at Lake Fork Baptist Church, 9483 FM 515, Alba TX 75410.
The Lord called our beautiful mother home on Sunday, December 15, 2019. As a devout Christian, Violet treated everyone with love and kindness. She never met a stranger and was loved by many.
The fifth of nine children, Violet Margaretta Wagner was born to Richard and Magdelina Wagner on January 26, 1927 in Emmons County. She was baptized July 3, 1939 in the Temvik Dam and gave her life to Christ on October 28, 1936. As a devoted Christian, she dreamed of becoming a missionary and fulfilled those dreams professing her love for the Lord to everyone she met. On December 12, 1946, she married Reuben E. Schiermeister and together, they raised three beautiful girls, sharing a joyous life of 48 years together as farmers and ranchers on the plains of North Dakota near the Livona area of Hazelton, ND.
As a devoted wife and mother, Violet enjoyed helping her husband with their farm and ranch as well as spending time with family and friends. As an exceptional seamstress, she enjoyed sewing clothes for her daughters and fishing with her father on the Missouri River for Walleye. Mom always said the Walleye shuddered when they heard her name! In her retirement years, she began quilting and we are so proud of the beautiful art work she created from fabric. She was devoted to her church family and joined the Quilting Ministry at Lake Fork Baptist Church after moving to Texas to be near her daughters in 2006.
Violet is survived by her daughters Denise Turpin of Yantis, TX, Judy McCrorie of Benton, LA, sister Luella Maier (Washington), grandchildren Loren Benedict and Jesse McCrorie both of Colorado, and four great grandchildren. Violet is preceded in death by her husband Reuben Schiermeister, second husband Glenn Olson, daughter Carrol Ann Davis, her parents and siblings Vernon, William, O’neil, Emil, Elmer, Ray (Wagner), and Elenora Schultz.
A special thank you to the staff of Trinity Mission Nursing Home, Chaplain Jim Moore, Felicia and Katrina of Heartsway Hospice for their love and compassionate care.
