Violet Elizabeth Richard, beloved daughter of Andrew S. and Michelle V. (St. Cyr) Richard, died on Thursday, August 29, 2019 in Boston Medical Center.

Violet was born in Boston on March 2, 2018 and was so smart and sweet. She loved to dance and scream in happiness. She loved all animals. She loved to be outside, taking walks. She loved Tuesday night dinners at Nana and Papa's, her first trip to Wells Beach, the sprinkler park on Lake Street, her two cats, Jax and Blaise and much more.

At only 17 months old she accomplished so much in life and was nothing short of amazing. She had the best smile and the cutest curls. Always so full of life and food! She had so many stories to tell, with the best laugh. Violet was beautiful in many ways, some would say . . . perfect.

In addition to her parents, Andrew and Michelle, Violet is survived by her grandparents, Robert and Sharon (Dennehy) Richard of Waltham and Raymond and Violet (Finnamore) St. Cyr, of Waltham; her uncles, David St. Cyr, Robert Richard and Sean Richard, all of Waltham; her great-grandparents, Gertrude 'Trudy' Dennehy of Waltham and the late Ronald Dennehy, the late Emile and Virginia Richard, the late Leonard and Violet 'Dolly' Finnamore, Raymond and Barbara St. Cyr of Waltham and Sally and Don Lebreton of New Jersey and many great-aunts, great-uncles and their families.

Family and friends will honor and remember Violet's life by gathering for her Funeral Mass on Wednesday, September 4th at 11 a.m. in Our Lady Comforter of the Afflicted Church, 880 Trapelo Road, Waltham.
