Violet, maiden name unknown, Johannes

Classification: Query
Surnames: Johannes, Dittenber
My father, Alex Johannes was married to a Canadian woman named Violet. She was born about 1907, immigrated to the US in 1928.
He spent time in the Sarnia, Ontario, area, playing hockey and football on an Imperial Oil team, while living and working in Detroit. I am hoping she may have come from this area. I am hoping to find out more about Violet and her family.

Alex Johannes and Violet Johannes are found in the 1930 US census living in Highland Park, Michigan, although they subsequently divorced and he married my mother in approximately 1936.

The most recent information I have was that Violet attended the funeral of her former sister-in-law, Olga (Johannes) Dittenber in Detroit around Dec 30, 1959.
