Violet attended all eight years of grade school at New Lake country school and four years of high school in Colome. After graduation in 1945 she was accepted into Springfield Teachers College where she attended one and a half years of college. After graduating with a teaching degree she taught three years in country schools until her dad needed her help on the farm. Violet was the oldest of four children so therefore she helped her dad in the field plowing, disking and mowing hay. Violet met Ruben and were married on April 6, 1947 at Zion Lutheran Church of Colome. To this union three daughters were born: Cheryl in 1948, Janet in 1949 and Garnet in 1952. After they were married they lived on Ruben’s dad’s farm near Millboro where they lived ten years. In 1957 they bought the William Dohmen place three miles north of Colome where they farmed and raised livestock. For several years they traveled to Arizona and Texas for part of the winter. When Ruben’s health began to fail they sold their farm and moved to Winner in 1991. She enjoyed gardening and flowers. In January 2012 she moved to the Golden Prairie Manor. She was placed in the Winner Regional Long Term Care Center on March 6, 2017 where she resided until the time of her death.
