Violet was an avid reader, and kept a library of books. She also authored several short stories. She loved animals and always had an adopted pet in her home. She was an accomplished seamstress, as demonstrated by her ability to keep her 4 daughters well clothed using older materials to make modern fashions. Violet valued her family above all else.
