They were blessed to have four children Robert Dean, Wanda Verlene, Cheryl Lynne, and Steve Michael. Violet was so proud of her children and the accomplishments that they achieved throughout their lives, she felt the same of her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She loved having them visit her, she loved holding them and singing to the little ones.
