Violet Cartier Schulterbrandt was born on St. Thomas on
February 22,1905 and died at home on August 12,1996. She
was the last of six children born to Sherry and Martha Cartier
of Regjerings Gade, the street where she was born, lived and
died 91 years later.
Violet Schulterbrandt was educated in parochial and private
schools on St Thomas. Throughout her lifetime she firmly
retained the old values that education and dedication to work
of one's choice were the keys to self-development and success.
Known as Ma, Mama, Aunt Violet, Auntie Vi and Miss
Violet to her children, relatives and many friends, Violet Cartier
was married in 1928 to Frank Schulterbrandt, now deceased.
That union produced three children, Frank Jr. (deceased), Alda
Schulterbrandt Monsanto, a senior government administrator
(retired), and Joy Schulterbrandt, psychologist and research
administrator (retired).
Violet Schulterbrandt was a homemaker, an accomplished
seamstress and a business woman. But first and foremost, she
was a loving mother. All who knew her, knew that her children
and grandchildren were the centerpieces of her life. No sacrifice
was too great, no work too burdensome or demanding for her
in her determination to provide the best education and
opportunities for her family. To her children, grandchildren,
great grandchild, relatives and friends alike, Violet gave of
herself unconditionally and always with love. She was the
canopy under which we all sheltered. She knew that it was the
daily kindnesses, genuine concern for and empathy with family
and friends that in the final count defines the measure of each
May God rest her soul in eternal peace.

Within the circle of her caring and love, Violet Schulterbrandt found
room to include two friends whom she claimed as her "adopted children":
Dorothy Hassfeld of Virginia and Dr. Edwin Nichols of Washington, D.C.
She also expressed a desire that special rememberance be given to the
Robert Shelford family, Mrs. Eva Joseph Francois and Mrs. Valerie Newton
Jacobs, and special friends and companions Glendora Browne, Nerillia
Telemacque and Kathleen Rogers.

MAMA ... I am so honored to have had the privilege of knowing a
grandmother like you. You were the one who gave me my first lesson in
making sweetbread, my first white Christmas, and the first to remember
our birthdays. I will remember the days of sitting and talking about
everything and anything with you. Also, you will be missed especially at
carnival, because you will not be here for me to buy your sugar cakes and
candies from the food fair. However, God knows best and has released
you from your suffering. Rest in peace.
Your granddaughter Trevore

This message comes from the heart to you, Mama. We know that you
are looking down on us as always. We will miss your smiles and your
laughter. Even though you were sick for many years, you never forgot a
birthday or a Christmas. You touched our lives and the lives of others -

children and adults throughout your lifetime. You have blessed us all.
Love, your grandson Stephen and my wife, Taralyn

I will remember one of the very special persons in my life, Mrs. Violet
Schulterbrandt, known to me as "Mama." She was a friend, a grand-
mother, and a teacher when I needed one. When I made a birthday or on
special occasions, she was the first to send well-wishes and to say, "Pass
by the house, I have something for you." I will miss her warmth, her
gentle smile, and her tender hands and feet especially when it was time
for their grooming. This was our special moment and I will miss it. You'll
be missed but not forgotten.
Love always, Glendora, Adoptive Granddaughter

The strife is o'er, the battle is won. No more pain, sickness, or sorrow.
She has gone to rest in the Master's arms. May the Lord bless and
comfort her loving daughters Alda and Joy in their time of bereavement.
We all loved her, but God loves her most.
Ms. Rose George and Family

We loved Mama but God loves her too. We will miss her greatly.
Love, Great Granddaughter Shirrell and Adoptive Great Grandson Kevy

Miss Violet,
There is a place where spirits blend
And friends hold fellowship with friends
Though sauntered far by fate
We meet around one common mercy seat
For every stormy wind that blows
There are calm and sweet retreats
Around one common mercy seat
it was God that allowed our families to meet and live in peace and
harmony; and God will allow us to meet again in fellowship with each
other. You are gone but will never be forgotten.
Robert & Mary Shelford

Miss Violet... Precious memories come to mind from a child until
now. Even though my siblings, cousins and children around the neigh-
borhood were of no relation to you, you somehow treated us as if we
belonged to you. We would sometimes spend the night and water your
plants. We enjoyed going to your birthday parties at Alda's home with

your friends. You even took the time out to teach us how to bake tarts. I
especially liked your guavaberry tarts. They were delicious.
Throughout the years, I can certainly say you were a strong and
intelligent woman. Even in your illness; you still had a strong mind. You
may never know this but Grandma once told me "Don't forget to tell Miss
Violet bye because you might not see us when you get back" Since then,
those words have been indelibly fixed on my mind. I thank God each
time I returned home and left that the both of you were alive. Well, Ms.
Violet, it's God's time to spend with you now and mine to remember
your precious memories.
Carol Vanterpool
Ms. Violet... Words cannot express the love that I have for you. You
were always there for me and I will miss you very much. Eboni and Delia
will miss entertaining you, as they often did, in song and dance. I know
that you are walking again and that God has taken you in his care.
Love, Valdez
