She is cheerful and fairly extroverted. Doña Violeta is a good-lloking, white-haired lady.


Explanation:
There is no translation for *doña*--this is a title that goes with first names (the masculine is *don*). It is in much more general use in Spanish speaking countries than similar titles used with first names in the English-speaking world. An example in US southern English would be Miz Jane/Mary/etc. Don/doña are normally used as a term of respect for older people, also for adults considered to be of a higher social status than the speaker.

Explanation:
She(?) is a happy sort and fairly extroverted. Dona Violeta (Lady Violeta, signifying a mature person) is pretty and grizzled (has grey hairs). (Grizzled is a nice term-my husband loves to call me his grizzled wife.) Hope this helps! Suerte!
