Violet Nelson was community volunteer for various inner-city organizations and a Graffiti Gallery financial manager. She tragically died in a collision with a semi-trailer commuting from the Gallery to the Native Women's Transition Centre on May 24, 2012.

A cautious commuter cyclist, she taught girls road safety. With little formal education and dyslexia, the administrative skills she independently learned enabled her find meaningful work.

At 10:30 AM tomorrow (June 22, 2012) there will be a memorial ride held for Nelson. Participants will meet in a parking lot at 181 Higgins. The memorial ride will follow Violet Nelson's intended route to 667 Ellice. More information can be obtained from memorial organizer John Harvie.
