In 1907 Daniel Bruner married Catherine Vitrola Reed Abrams. In 1910 Violet Bruner was born in Martin County, Indiana. She was named after her mother's sister, Violet Reed Bruner (married to Daniel's brother).

In 1910 Violet was living in Vincennes with her parents, her father's two children - Shirley and Ruth - and her mother's two children - Blanche and Betty.

By 1920 Catherine divorced Daniel and was remarried to Henry Wilson, a jeweler. They were living in Linton, Indiana. Violet and Betty were together. By 1930 Betty had married Hobart Smith and Violet was living with them in Toledo, Washington Township, in Lucas County, Ohio, where she was a switchboard operator with the A & P grocery company.

Violet later went to work for Shell Oil Company in Indianapolis, Indiana. When she retired she and Betty, then a widow, moved to Terre Haute, IN, and lived together until their deaths. They stayed very close to Violet's half-brother, Shirley Bruner and his wife Iva.

In her later years and after Betty passed away Violet moved to Columbus, Indiana, where she had close friends. That is where she died.
