Violet Easterly

October 11, 1947 — December 23, 2023

Violet Louise Easterly, 76, entered life eternal on Saturday, December 23, 2023, with her loving and faithful husband, Joe, at her side. The name Violet is symbolic of faith, inspiration, spiritual passion, and humility. It evokes beauty and grace. What a perfect name to describe this incredibly strong woman.

Violet was raised near Ten Mile in Meigs County, Tennessee, on a small dairy farm. In 1968, while working at the Blue Circle, she met her future husband Joe, and from there, they spent 55 years together, raising their loving family. As they built their lives together, adventures awaited them in Washington, Texas, Alabama, and Florida, finally settling back in Tennessee.

A devoted member of Ball Play Baptist Church, Violet's beliefs were anchored to her actions. She always had that sparkle in her eyes for those she loved. Her memory will forever be a blessing.

She was preceded in death by her father and mother, Edgar and Edith (Roberts) Masingill; siblings: Ben, Arlin, Minnie, James, and Lee Masingill.

She is survived by her husband, Joe Allen, and children: Lesa Hall (Tony), Allen Easterly (Chrissy), and Regina Williams (Leo). Grandchildren include Tiffaney Hawkins and Stacy Hall; Brian, Brianna, Justin, Jayden, and Alicia Williams; and great-grandchildren Addison, Trinity, Cylas, and Oaklyn Lily-Mae Hawkins; Layla Stanley and Weston Hall; several nephews, nieces, and many special friends.

The funeral service will be held at Ball Play Baptist Church on Friday, December 29, 2023 at 12:00 pm. The family will be receiving friends from 11:00 am - 12:00 pm prior to the service. The family will also receive friends on Thursday, December 28, 2023 from 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm at Ball Play Baptist Church. She will be interred at Cedar Spring Cemetery in Cleveland, TN.
