I was sad to learn of your passing but after reading your story, what a glorious time you are having. I remember seeing you in the dining room when I visited my dad (Dudley). You would stop by and give that big smile and say hello. It was always a pleasure to see your smile and talk with you when I could. Continued prayers for your precious family during this difficult time. I know you will watch over all of them and your friends. God Bless.

Dwight and Dennis and Family, We knew your Mom and Dad in First Baptist Church for many years. Your mom was the epitome of the Southern Christian lady who always had a smile on her face and was so gracious and kind. She also had a vivacious personality and never hesitated to express her views about life and her love for Jesus! We lost touch with her when she could no longer attend church. I am not surprised she lived such a long life! She had so much to offer others. May your family be comforted by the legacy of Christian love and service she left you all. You are in our prayers! She wrote such a unique obituary for herself! What an inspiration! Camille and Lee Roy Adair

Such a sweet Lady... Always a peaches and cream complexion, class and a lil Southern sass! She is having fun...I hope she and Dee (Esther Cobb) are partners, one of them have the Rook card and make Vaughn and Granddaddy Cobb go "set". What a beautiful and uplifting celebration of her Life! ❤

This is the sweetest and most unique obituary I have ever read. I am distantly related to the Phelps family but not sure exactly how. Sounds like Vaughn found a gem in Ms Violet! My condolences to her family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
