Violet M. Marx

February 06, 1921 - July 28, 2012


Violet M. Marx of Mission Viejo, CA passed peacefully of natural causes on Saturday, July 28, 2012.

She was born on February 6, 1921 in Port Huron, Michigan. Her siblings included sister, Renee Zelinsky who is still living near Port Huron and a brother Joe, who is probably laughing with her now. She graduated with top honors and went on own her store named ‘Vi’s Variety’. Later she married Gene Marx and had 5 wonderful children. The family was transferred around the country as Gene was opening new plants for Chrysler with the home base always back in Michigan. She was the rock for the family and kept everything together through the years. She was a successful real estate agent for a few years in Michigan until she and Gene retired to New Port Richey, Florida in 1975 until they left there in 1997 to live out their years near one of their daughters in beautiful Mission Viejo, California.

She was a fun, caring and loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She is preceded in death by her husband, Gene and son, John. Violet is survived by her sister, Renee and her 4 children: Michael Marx, Beth Fowler, Jeff Marx and Judith Vernier as well as 12 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren.

Violet was a loving, caring wife and mother who throughout her life enjoyed bowling, golfing, gardening, playing bridge, painting and spending time with her family.

A celebration of her life will be held at O’Connor Mortuary in Laguna Hills on Sunday, August 5 at 4pm.

  1. Grandma,
    I will always remeber you as a happy woman, you are my example to stay strong and move forward and never let anyone stop me in life… You are my rock and my inspriation 🙂
    I remember going to Stephanies wedding and you were dancing, so sweet 🙂 You wanted to wear that fur coat because you were cold in Michigan… Poor Grandma… Then trying to balance a beer on your forehead was classic. You always make me laugh and show me the road to follow by leading such a great example.
    No matter what, you were always so plesant to be around and I am so blessed to call you MY GRANDMA!!
    You will be completely missed… I love you so much and I’m happy that you are with Uncle John, I’m sure he has missed his mama.
    I love you Grandma Violet, send me your angel whispers.

    Miss you dearly
    Your granddaughter,

    Fond memories of Vi at Stephanie’s wedding with lots of family in 2009. This was a wonderful trip for her, and she saw all her great grandchildren who were born by then. She also saw all her grandchildren from far away.
