For Violet Page
Happy Birthday to my dear friend Violet, who would have been 106 today. Her full name was Violet Ellen Eckstrom Page. She made dolls in Cenral Illinois for over 50 I met her when I was 14, and she 69. I was her good friend till I was 41 and she passed away. She made porcelain dolls, cloth dolls, all kinds. She loved to collect, and sold at shows. My best antique dolls came from her, and she taught me me to make, assemble, and repair dolls. I will always love her. My mother is now with her, and I will never forget her. Great doll makers should be remembered, and this is my tribute to my dear friend.
