Viola Flynn – 77, of Valley passed away with her daughter by her side on Tuesday, June 7, 2022 at the NHI, QEII Health Sciences Centre. Born in Lourdes, Newfoundland, she was a daughter of the late Patrick and Monica (Emberley) Meaney.

Viola married Robert Flynn in 1963 at Lourdes, Newfoundland. She moved with her husband to Quebec then Ontario before returning to Newfoundland where she settled.

In 2022, Viola moved to Nova Scotia to live with her daughter and was delighted with her new home in Valley. She loved the quiet neighbourhood and watching deer graze in the backyard. She was looking forward to meeting the new people in her community and reconnecting with her Nova Scotia family and friends.

Viola was a devoted and loving mother who freely shared her wisdom and strong faith when called upon. She had a wonderful sense of humour and loved to laugh. She liked to play cards and enjoyed a life-long passion for quilting.

Viola is survived by her loving daughter, Janice Flynn; sister, Bernice (Howard) Flynn, Alberta; like-a-sister Monica Snook, Newfoundland; sisters-in-law, Marie Meaney, Nova Scotia; Joanne Flynn, Newfoundland; Betty (Mike) Shive, Michigan; and as well as a large circle of nieces, nephews, and friends.

She was predeceased by her husband, Robert Flynn; brothers, Patrick Jr. (Helen) Meaney; Lawrence (Alice) Meaney; Louis Meaney; James Hackett; sisters, Ellen (Aloysius) Drake; Theresa (Alvis) Nazworth; Theresa Meaney; and Margaret (Jervis) Flynn.
