Violet F. Anderson, infant

Violet Fey Anderson was stillborn at 35 weeks Thursday, May 7, 2015.

Violet’s parents are John and Meghan (Sonstegard) Anderson of Pierre, SD. (Meghan was formerly of Howard Lake.) The couple’s precious daughter died from a rare, unpreventable umbilical cord accident; however, she now lives indelibly in the family’s hearts and minds.

In addition to her parents, Violet is survived by her dear sister, Piper Jo.

John and Meghan appreciate the support of their loving family: Martin and Carol Anderson of Hitchcock, SD; Philip and Jackie Sonstegard of Sioux Falls, SD; Nicole (Brian) Augustine of Vermillion, SD; Kristi (Wayne) Smith of Sioux Falls, SD; Laura (Kyle) Baade of Plymouth, NE; Adam (Dezarae) Fenski of Mitchell, SD; Melanie (Calvin) Johnson of Edina; Peter (Katy) Sonstegard of Sioux Falls, SD; Goodwin Sonstegard of Spirit Lake, IA; Morgan Sonstegard of Minneapolis; Shepard Sonstegard of Houston, TX; and Anna Sonstegard of Long Island, NY.

Moreover, the Andersons feel blessed to have such compassionate kith and kin too numerous to note here, but nonetheless appreciated.
