Violet was born June 20, 1933 in Janesville, WI to Christian and Marie (Penshorn) Glander. She graduated from high school in Janesville and started, but didn’t complete, nursing school due to family health concerns. She met and later married Robert Aughey on August 17, 1953 in Las Cruces, New Mexico. They moved to Biron, WI. and from there they moved to Janesville, so Bob could complete his college degree at Whitewater, after a significant car accident. They then moved back to Wisconsin Rapids where they lived until her death. She was primarily a home-maker, but held many jobs during her career including: working as a saleswomen, she was supervisor of the Wood County directory for 12 years, then she worked as a secretary at River-view Hospital. Robert and Violet raised 6 children. Violet was a very faithful Christian and her faith was first and foremost in her life. She was kind, considerate, and loved her children unconditionally and always put her family first. She was a wonderful cook and could make the simplest of things amazingly delicious. She struggled through many health issues at the end, but always kept a bright disposition. She was resourceful, trustworthy, caring, and hard-working and so completely loved her family and all of her dogs. She will be dearly missed by her family and friends. Violet is survived by her sister, Elaine of Janesville; her son, David (Jill) Aughey of St. Paul, MN and their children, Anders and Jack; her son, Dan (Judy) Aughey of Madison (children Jessica and David), Doug (son) of Wisconsin Rapids, Mike (son) and Barbara Aughey of Sun Prairie, WI and their children: Bryan, Beth, and Grace; her daughter, Kris (Minh) Luu of Chicago, Il and their children, Henry and Emma; and her daughter, Rebecca of Wisconsin Rapids. Violet is preceded in death by her father, mother, and husband. We would like to thank the staffs at Aspirus Comfort Care and Hospice and Herman-Taylor Funeral Home for their exceptional and attentive care and making the end of Violet’s life manageable and peaceful.
