She had many memorable times growing up on a farm, and the big family reunions every summer. Violet passed away on May 19, 2020, in Johnston, Iowa.

Her husband was a career Navy man, he spent a lot of years traveling. She managed all of the logistics so her husband could serve his country. When able, she would travel with him but found it challenging to plan Christmas in a motel room with three small children. She bowled in a league for several years and took computer lessons at 84. She liked to stay fit and also liked line dancing and walking. She was a stay-at-home mom raising six children and providing every opportunity for her special needs son. She liked traveling, cruises, and bus trips. She was incredibly proud of her eight grandchildren, one great- granddaughter and two great-grandsons.
