Viola P. Tweeddale

November 15, 1943 — April 8, 2021

Viola (Vi) Tweeddale of Hurley NY, passed away peacefully in her home, surrounded by her family and pets on April 8, 2021. Vi was 77 years old.

She was born and raised in Red Cloud, Nebraska and moved to Queens, NY at the age of 20, where she met her husband, William, while working at Western Union. In 1973, they moved to Hurley to raise their 3 children.

Wherever Vi lived, she always stayed connected with her family and friends back in Nebraska, and she never stopped rooting for the Cornhuskers. Although family was Vi's greatest pride and joy, she also dedicated her life to being a friend to everyone she met. She volunteered for over 25 years with Red Cross and Welcome Wagon. She loved animals as much as she loved people and was rarely ever seen at home without a cat on her lap or a dog by her side.

She is survived by her husband of 53 years, William; her daughter and son-in-law, Cora and Tim Caulfield of Guilderland NY; her son and daughter-in-law, Robert and Laura Tweeddale of Brooklyn NY; daughter Julie Tweeddale of Atlanta GA; and 5 grandchildren Justin, Brandon, Colin, Caitlyn Caulfield and Tristen Tweeddale; and numerous fur babies. She was predeceased by her mother, Bulah Kennedy and sister, Mildred Gamble. Anyone blessed to have known her was truly fortunate to have had someone with such a loving and beautiful soul touch their life.

Entrusted to the care of Keyser Funeral & Cremation Service, 326 Albany Ave., Kingston, NY 12401 where family and friends may visit on Sunday April 11, 2021 from 1pm to 4pm. If you would like to attend, please reserve your space here:
