She came to the United States in 1960 to care for her grandmother. While living in Youngstown, OH, she met and married her husband, John. Together they shared 42 loving years before John passed in 2003. Violet spent her life placing her family first. Violet was known for her amazing pastries and generously shared them. Anyone who visited her home never left hungry.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, sister Marija, brothers Stepan, Josip, and Ivan.
