Violet was born August 27, 1921 to the late John and Claudia (Hays) Wampole in Pleasant Valley Township, WI. On April 4, 1942, she married the love of her life, Lawrence P. Kastel, in Jackson, MS where Lawrence was stationed while in the service. Violet enjoyed knitting, crocheting, and making quilts. She wrote many poems through her years and played the harmonica, even while at Lake Hallie Memory Care until very recently.

She is survived by her children, Elaine (Al) Twerberg of Chippewa Falls, Eileen (Tom) Clements of Smithfield, UT, Larry (Becky) Kastel of Anoka, MN, and Duane (Vicki) Kastel of Eau Claire; 15 grandchildren; 33 great grandchildren; 8 great great grandchildren; and many other relatives.

The family would like to thank all the staff at Lake Hallie Memory Care and St. Joseph's Hospice for the wonderful compassionate and tender care they gave our mother.

Honoring a life with a meaningful service is an important step in the grief process and is a gift to their family and friends —
a gift of memories and a gift of healing
