Violet Mae Ellis Craddock, 85, loving daughter, sister, aunt, wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, went to be with her LORD on Friday, October 25, 2019.
Born in Charleston, West Virginia on August 27, 1934, she was one of eight daughters to bless the late Tom and Bessie Ellis of Alum Creek, West Virginia.
Violet was a retiree of the Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company where she spent nearly 30 years, finishing her career as a Manager there. She and her husband, Roy, called several places home during their lifetime, including West Virginia, Florida, and South Carolina. Regardless of where home was, the thing Violet enjoyed most was spending time with family. She also enjoyed her roses, cooking for others, and dancing; though nothing quite compared to her love for her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
She is survived by three loving children, Roy Evert Craddock, III (Phyllis) of Leesburg, FL, Steven Lee Craddock (Janet) of Alum Creek, WV, and Jeffrey Scott Craddock (Marianne) of Simpsonville, SC; six grandchildren, Jennifer Haynes (Carlus), Jason Craddock (Lisa), Greg Craddock, Jessica Frye (Bryan), Stephanie Lockaby (Josh), and Natalie Craddock Williams (Jamie); four great grandchildren, Mason, Kynan, Teagan, and Ava; and five of her sisters, Joyce Creech of Avon Park, FL, Edna Bair of Rock Hill, SC, Ann Atwater of Leesburg, FL, Evelyn Lowman of Avon Park, FL, and Gail Droddy of Avon Park, FL.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by two sisters, Virginia Tyler, and Betty Moore.
A visitation will be held Nov 9th at 12:00 noon at Forks of Coal Missionary Baptist Church in Alum Creek, WV followed by the Memorial Service at 1:00 p.m.
