WISE, VA - Violet L. Sturgill, 70, went to be with the Lord on March 14, 2019, at her home.

Passionate for animals, Violet volunteered a lot of her time at PAWS in Wise, VA after retirement. She was hard-working and dedicated, retiring after many years of service at Wiley and Wilson and Thompson and Litton. Many of her co-workers turned into family throughout the duration of her employment and following her retirement.

She is preceded in death by her mother, Marie and father, Benson; two amazing brothers, Donald and Eddie Wayne; her precious granddaughter, Emma and all of her adored fur-babies.

Violet is survived by her beautiful baby boy, Jonathan; her wonderful sister, Greta; her sister-in- law and best friend, Jean; her dear friend, Susie; and many nieces, nephews, close friends and extended family.

Violet is a sweet and caring woman, kind in many ways, and provided quite an impact on those who surrounded her both in life and after death.

“He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 29-31
