Violet M. (nee Cole) Westerdahl


Violet Marie (Cole) Westerdahl, 81, of Silver Creek, NY, passed away peacefully with her family by her side on Monday, December 4, 2023, following a lengthy illness. Vi was born May 1, 1942, in Stoneham, PA, to the late Lewis D. and Virginia (Ishman) Cole.

Vi was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and sister. Vi took great pride in her immaculate home and gardens. She enjoyed golfing, baking, going to the casino, traveling the country with her late husband Dave, and spending time with her family, close friends, and grand dogs. One of Vi’s fondest memories was a trip to Vegas where she and Dave parted the crowd on Fremont Street with their show-stopping dance moves. After marrying the love of her life and best friend on November 3, 1962, Vi devoted her time and energy to raising three incredible daughters.

Vi is survived by her two daughters, Michele Law and husband Phillip of Irving, NY, and Brooke Heber of Silver Creek, NY. Son-in-law, Glenn Chasser of Venetia, PA. Granddaughter, Ashleigh Gazda, husband Cullen, son Parker, daughter Chase, and son Greyson of Navarre, FL. Grandson, Justin Law, fiancé Megan Slocum, daughter Lexi, daughter Brielle, and son Kane of Gowanda, NY. Sister, Barb (late Sonny) Lietchenberger of Barnes, PA. Also surviving are several nieces and nephews.

Vi was preceded in death by her husband, Dave (April 13, 2010), her eldest daughter, Terri Chasser (April 21, 2022), and her brothers Walter and Donald.

A private graveside service will be held at the convenience of the family. Per Vi’s request, no prior visitation. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial donations be made to the Lake Shore Humane Society (Link:
