Violet Calovini Gossett
Violet Calovini Gossett, right, is celebrating her 90th birthday today. She is shown here with her granddaughter, Elisa Clift Cline.
The Lloydsville resident was born May 14, 1930, at Lafferty, a daughter of the late Adolph and Mary Calovini. She and her late husband, Gerald Gossett, have eight children together. Today, Violet has 23 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.
Her family plans to help her celebrate this afternoon with a vehicle parade of family members, her church family, friends, neighbors and some local first responders past her home.
