Violet Evelyn Maria Sandin, of Mora, passed away on January 24, 2008 at the Villa Health Care Center. She was 94 years old.
Violet was born February 12, 1913 in Minneapolis, MN to Walfred and Alma (Mattson) Forsberg. Her older sisters Toiny and Saimy were born in Sweden. The family moved from Minneapolis to Whited Township (Brook Park), Kanabec County, MN where they farmed. Violet attended country school through 8th grade and graduated from Mora High School. She married Harold Sandin, of Comfort Township, on October 21, 1937 in Chicago, IL. They lived in Michigan and California before returning to Mora in 1945. They were married 51 years. Harold preceded her in death in 1988.
Violet was active in the Rebekahs and a neighborhood ladies group. She was involved with the Kanabec County History Center. She enjoyed fishing, traveling (Alaska, Sweden, summers in Grand Marais, MN, winters in Port Charlotte, FL.) and gardening – she had a very “green thumb”. She made many friends among the staff and residents at the Villa during the past six years.
Violet is survived by her nephew Robert Gale, and his two daughters, of Illinois; niece Nancy Adams of Mpls.; and guardians Bette and Virgil C. Anderson of Mora. She was an adopted grandma to the Anderson children and grandchildren.

  1. Violet was my mother Nancy Adams aunt. My mothers father Robert, was Violets husband Harolds twin brother. I remember visiting Violet as a young girl. I have the fondest memories of her. So incredibly friendly, and so beautiful. I wasn’t surprised to see that she had not changed a bit. I often thought of her through the years, and was so sad when I learned she had died that I never re-connected with her. She sounds like a wonderful lady, and I’m so happy she was an adopted Grandma to the Anderson family. They were so blessed to have known her. May she be reunited with her dear Harold whom she loved so much.
    God bless you sweet Violet. Love, Kristen
