Viola Lee Landon was born in Gary, Indiana on November 6, 1956 to the union of Olivia and Armour Lee Hunt. When Viola came into this world, her dad thought she looked so much like his mom, that they named her Viola for his mom Viola Ezell and her middle name Lee, the same as his middle name.

On August 30th, 1980 Viola married the love of her life Egbert Landon. They were blessed with a beautiful daughter and four grandchildren.

Vi, as she was affectionately known to family and friends, studied the Bible with Jehovah's Witnesses. She dedicated her life to Jehovah and symbolized her dedication through water baptism on January 19, 1975, becoming one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Viola served Almighty God, Jehovah, faithfully until her death. Viola grew up on Diamond St. in Gary, IN. Our mom being a young widow, raised her to know and love JEHOVAH God.

On March 5, 2017, Viola fell asleep in death. She was preceded in death by her parents, Armour and Olivia Hunt; paternal grandparents, Doc and Viola Ezell; maternal grandparents, Lennie and Nathan Garrett and Luther Turner. Viola’s fight is over. She stood steadfast in her faith (2 Timothy 4:7). We will miss our dear sister, wife, mother, grandmother, auntie and friend.

Viola leaves to cherish her loving memories, her husband of 36 years, Egbert Landon; daughter, Selena Landon; four grandchildren, Jolena, Jonathan, Joshua and Juliette Elliot; six sisters, Lynette Turner, Elaine Walker, Diana (Edward) Whitley, Essedine (Lennart) Burnett, Dorothy Miller and Olivia Marino; and a host of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, other relatives and many friends.

We will miss Viola dearly. Her family and teaching others about God’s promises of a paradise restored earth, brought her much happiness and joy. Her neighbors will miss seeing her in her motorized wheelchair, with her beautiful smile as she shared the Watchtower and Awake Magazines along the way.
