Violet spoke her mind. Never one to sugar coat an issue, but rather deal with it head on and with full force. She was a skilled shopper and would always get the most for every dollar spent. She worked hard throughout her life to support her children, taking on multiple and varied jobs. Believed in making it on her own and guarded her independence.
