"Poor Viola either did not get a headstone in the cemetery or it was of a poor quality that it no longer stands or is unreadable. She was listed on her death records as being buried in Oakland Cemetery in Centerville, but they had no headstone transcription for her in the Cemetery Transcription book." -- Barb Mills
