Violet A. Seifert the daughter of Edward and Rose (Holm) Platz, was born on January 26, 1928 rural Springfield, Minnesota. Violet attended a country school.

On October 17, 1961, Violet married Raymond Seifert at St. Raphael’s Catholic Church in Springfield. They lived and farmed in Morgan Township where she helped Ray raise feeder pigs and sheep, as the flock of sheep was up to 500 strong. Violet, along with Ray, spent many a night in the barn during lambing season! They spent some of their free time dancing to Old Time music at local dances. Violet enjoyed gardening and watching Vikings and Twins games.

Violet was a member of St. Michael’s Catholic Church, where she had been a CCW member.
