She met a young Canadian soldier and in 1945 were married. 1946 brought her to Southampton where she and her infant daughter would board a ship for the long voyage to Canada to join her husband.
Settling in Saskatoon in 1947 was hard at first but with determination Vi was able to teach herself French, Typing and gain her GED to help enable her to get a position with the federal government. A position that was mutually beneficial for many years to come.

As well as many grandchildren and great grandchildren and relatives in Wales that she kept a very close relationship with. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her.
