Violet May (Spaid) Wolfe, age 100, of Mount Storm, WV passed away Tuesday, July 23, 2019 at Grant Rehabilitation and Care Center in Petersburg, WV.
Mrs. Wolfe was born June 11, 1919 in Capon Springs, WV and was a daughter of the late Luther Bell Spaid and Florence Bell (Jenkins) Spaid. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Chester S. Wolfe in 1973; one son, Chester Grant (June) Wolfe; son-in-law, Dennis Pratt, one brother, Martin Spaid and one sister, Daisy Spaid. Mrs. Wolfe was the last surviving member of her immediate family.
Violet was a tough, but sweet West Virginia woman. She raised her children, who were all born at home, in a place and time where things were rough. She was called Grandma or Nan by people of all ages, whether they were related to her or not. After her husband of 30 years passed away, she spent her time going from place to place helping her children as their children arrived, helping with some elderly relatives and basically helping anyone and everyone who needed her.
She was a woman of quick wit with a sparkle in her eye and an engaging smile. Everyone she met was treated as a friend and fed well. She had a special place in her heart for animals and always made sure that, wherever she was, all of the animals were taken care of. She worked hard into her late 90s. She cooked, cleaned, did laundry and dishes and helped take care of the babies.
Violet was a wonderful person who was full of life and love for her family and many that she considered as extended family. She will be greatly missed by many.
Violet is survived by one son, Leroy (Roberta)Wolfe of Lahmansville, WV; three daughters, Imogene (Roger) Whetzel of Mt. Storm, WV, Elnor Pratt of Old Fields, WV and Effie (Raymond) Keplinger of Moorefield, WV; daughter-in-law, Paula Wolfe of Rig, WV; 15 grandchildren, 21 great grandchildren; 4 great-great grandchildren.
