One of Algoma’s first parades of 2020 was held last week: a family and friends celebration for Violet McCosky’s 100th birthday.

The parade for Violet McCoskey’s 100th birthday gets a police escort.

Dozens of vehicles lined up for a slow ride to Autumn’s Journey Assisted Living, where McCosky lives. Great-granddaughter Maddie McCosky, who works there, set it up.

Born Violet Kirchman on May 5, 1920, in Rio Creek, Vi McCosky was one of four daughters and one son of William and Viola Kirchman. She went to first grade in Rio Creek, second grade at a Lutheran school in Two Rivers, third and fourth at Immanuel Lutheran School in Kewaunee, and fifth through eighth grades at St. Paul’s in Algoma.

Vi graduated from Algoma High School in 1937 and married John McCosky in 1941, living on his parents’ farm. She lost her first two infants, but had three sons: Bruce (died in 2003), Brian (lives in Texas) and Bill (Green Bay). She has five grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

“God has been good to me,” she said in an autobiographical note she wrote for her 90th birthday. “He is always with me.”
