Violet Lashley Coffey


I grew up knowing that Violet was the funniest and sweetest person you would ever want to know. She is faithful in every way and was my first example of a lady preacher. I watched as she grew in faith and saw her preach some of her first sermons. She gave me strong and wise, Godly council many times. It is such a privilege to get to be the first to read her life’s story.

Violet Lashley Coffey lives in a plantation style house on 9 acres near Tightwad, which is near Truman Reservoir in Henry County, Missouri – with her son Marc. A daughter, Brenda, lives next door.

Her daughter, Mary Lynn, lives a little farther away with one son and a half dozen dogs. Another son, Joel lives about 30 miles away with his recent bride, Tracy, and children that Violet welcomes into the family – giving her a total of 16 grandchildren plus 12 great grandchildren. Eldest son, David Lee, and wife Diane, live in San Antonio, Texas – a long way away. Another daughter, Patsy, and husband, Dennis live in California – a very long way away!

Violet attends Souls Harbor Worship Center in Tightwad where she is acting Sunday School Supervisor, board member and teacher whenever needed. Just 2 miles away, three times a week.
