Viola was born in Omaha, Nebraska to Russell and Victoria (Allen) Smith. She was the only daughter and had 4 brothers. Her parents were deaf.

She married Harry Caleb Churchill in 1913 and had three children, Juanita (1914), Jeannette (1917) and Harry Curwood born in March of 1919. Harry Caleb, her husband, died the previous October 1918 at Camp dodge, Iowa.

Viola later married (March 2, 1920) Elexis Stearns and had 3 more children, William (1921), Barbara (1924)and Helen (1927). Helen was deceased before her first birthday.

Viola and Elexis divorced at a later date and Viola met Ralph. Viola left her children in Nebraska and moved to California with Ralph sometime during the mid 1930's. The Churchill children were left with their Churchill grandparents. The Stearns children were left with their dad Elexis.

Ralph and Viola did not marry until 25 March 1959 in Reno Nevada. Viola and Ralph lived in Washington and finally settled in Oregon. They stayed there until their deaths.
