Violet J. Gregg

Violet J. Gregg was born in Kansas on Jan. 22, 1927. With her parents and younger brother, Jack, the family moved to Honolulu, Hawaii in January 1937 where she grew up. While growing up she enjoyed playing the ukulele, piano and accordion (in the school band).

On Dec. 7, 1941, she witnessed the Zeros flying through the valley as she and her brother viewed the red bullseye from their rooftop, and their lives became wartime living.

She met her husband, Weldon Gregg, in Hawaii during the war and they married in 1944.

Her life was full of traveling and household moving as a military spouse with three children in tow. They settled in Fallbrook in 1960 and she retired from the Fallbrook Unified School District as a dietician in the school cafeteria.

She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, grand and great-grandchildren and nieces and nephews and many other relatives.
