To the Family of Violet, sincere condolences from the Frank and Catherine Stets Family, formerly of Louther Street, Carlisle. Violet would deliver fresh, brown eggs to us every week for our family of 9. As a child at the time, I remember listening to her and my Mom and their very interesting conversations every week. My mother looked forward to her deliveries. Violet also insisted all of us kids visit the farm and I have nothing but fond memories of Violet and Irvin. May she rest in peace.

Ellie (Stets) Speece

Our sincere sympathy to Violet's family. My mother, Thelma Shughart, enjoyed visiting Violet at the nursing home until she was no longer able to visit. She always enjoyed Violet's stories of the old days. Mother died April 15 of this year. We will truly miss both of these ladies who were so much fun to be with. In remembrance with love. Beverly and John Lehman
