She was active in Girl Scouts and won awards for singing at regional contests. In 1941, the family moved to Ritzville, Washington, where Violet attended school from the seventh grade through high school, graduating in 1947. She was active in music in school, singing in a trio, and playing clarinet in the high school band.
