Violet was born in Cottondale, Texas, to Albert and Velma Livengood, October 27, 1926. She grew up in the area starting school in Springtown and finishing in Paradise. Determined and hard-working, Violet went to beauty school in Fort Worth so she could have a profession to support herself and her son.
