  1. Margaret Schmit says:

    I was browsing the internet and came across this obituary. I believe that my mom, Julia Berryman (formerly Mizzer) was a cousin of Violet. Julia was the daughter of Agatha (Anna) Schemansky Mizzer and Peter Mizzer. I remember that they named several of their children the same names! I remember my mom mentioning Violet Sedlock.

    My mom passed away in 2011 at the age of 91. I believe that their parents were two brothers, who married two sisters! It makes it tough to trace geneology, when there are so many Mizzers in Shenandoah with the same names!

    I thought that you might like to know this information. My .sincere condolences on the loss of Violet.

    Sincerely,
    Margaret Schmit (formerly Berryman)
