I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Violet. I worked with her for over 20 years. I always enjoyed working with her. One memory was when we did Highway clean up. When we were done we went back to her house and enjoyed chili, beer and laughs....and the view of the lake from her deck. I pray you all have wonderful memories to help you through this difficult time. Vi will be greatly missed. Mary Steffen Schroader
