Violet Carson

Actress. At the age of three, she began taking piano lessons, which would be handy in her later years, as she appeared on Songs of Praise, playing the piano and sang in a beautiful soprano voice, which very few could believe came from her mouth. The reason being, on "Coronation Street," she played battle axe 'Ena Sharples,' (1960-1980) "a vicious tongued, interfering old Biddy in a Hair Net," who along with 'Martha Longhurst' (Lynne Carol) and 'Minnie Caldwell' (Margot Bryant), made life on "the Street" very interesting. She was awarded the OBE in 1965 and she passed away on Boxing Day 1983 at the age of 85.
