She was a member of Mingo Baptist Church and Plainview Baptist Church. Although she was tiny in stature, she was a force to be reckoned with, especially in regard to family and faith. Throughout her life Violet was generous in spirit; giving not only monetarily, but of her time, energy, support, encouragement, and prayers for family and friends. She was steadfast in her faith and committed to her family. As the matriarch she was a care taker for all and the first to be there in a crisis. She was an outstanding example of what it truly means to be the hands of Christ. Violet will be greatly missed yet always remain in the hearts and memories of her loved ones.
