      ["The Wolves Had Four Legs" by Violette DeRosia] [from Douglas Lustig] [Minnesota Death Index]



      Olga Lustig was born in Fenwood, Saskatchewan, Canada, on 12 January, 1905. [According to the Minnesota Death In>
      dex she was born in Canada on 12 January, 1905]
      Olga was a witness to Helma Benjestorf's marriage to Conmee McLellan in November, 1919.
      Olga married a boxer, Eddy Cochran, probably around 1922. Violette, as she preferred to be called, and Eddy had a son, Ray Cochran, in 1923.
      Eddy Cochran died ca. 1932.
      In 1934, Violette married Joe Derosia in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Joe Derosia adopted Violette's son, Ray.
      Olga Violette Lustig died at Wayzata, [or Maple Plain, Hennepin] Minnesota, on 7 January, 1997.

      Olga didn't like her name and "changed" it to Violette after her marriage to Joe Derosia [Lucille Benjestorf says she changed it because of discrimination against people with German names after W>
      WI]. Jeanette remembers him as "...a great guy...".
      Violette and Joe had a son, Raymond.
      In April, 1960 she wrote an article entitled "The Wolves Had Four Legs" for the local paper in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The article is about her grandparents, Heinrich & Mathilde Benjestorf.
