 I grew up next door (Magnetic Springs) as a child with the Hulls. I remember sitting on the porch with them during the summer nights listening to the Reds play on the radio. Wonderful people who helped shape my childhood. God bless them both.

I loved this lady from the bottom of my heart and I will miss my Grandma so very very much. I have many fond memories, like going to the bath house with her, the many wonderful birthday cakes she made me, chocolate cake with her famous caramel icing, and who could forget her melt in your mouth butterscotch pies!!! Picnics in the side yard and homemade ice cream. You may be gone from this earth Grandma, but you will never ever be gone from our hearts.  Rest in peace, as I am sure you are with your "Otie" and even little Penny too.

My sympathy to the family. I thought Violet was a very good lady.  My parents did too.  She was an asset to the Magnetic Springs Methodist Church.

I find it difficult to express in words the connection I enjoyed with our Grandma. Violet was the one person who held an otherwise shattered family together. Through separations of siblings, cousins, parents, Violet remained in loving touch with all. Altho the list of people I have known and loved my entire life has grown shorter, I am more than thankful my Grandma topped that list for my 56yrs. You will always be in my heart of hearts. Give Grandad a hug for me.

Not many people in the world get to know or remember their Great Grandmother and I am truly blessed to have had my time with mine.  She never missed a Birthday or Christmas card. I will forever remember the beautiful stationary of her letters and the kind and encouraging words they contained. It boggles the mind how many traits I inherited from her and I am proud of them all.  May she find peace and happiness in the Hereafter with Otis and the friends and family that have passed before her.  I will love her deeply and always, May just won't be the same without a trip to OH10 to see her.
