Grandchildren; Karen and Reggie Craig, Connie and Dale Strawhaun, Rhonda and Jeff Kirk, Darrell Stewart and Rita Eby; 16 great grandchildren, 20 great great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews she loved so much.
Viola was always active in her church and in her community. She received numerous awards and honors. She loved working as a volunteer for many years at the Beaumont Nutrition Center.
After leaving Beaumont, she quickly adapted to her new life in Baytown and enjoyed her days at Remington Park Assisted Living Facility. It was a very happy and rewarding time in her life. This past year she moved to St. James House where she was living at her passing.
