She is also survived by numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends that were special to her.
Viola was born October 17, 1936 in Bordelonville, LA. She attended Bordelonville High School and two years at Southwestern Louisiana University before marrying Patrick and moving to New Orleans. She was a longtime resident of Metairie and a parishioner and former teacher at St. Mary Magdalen Church and School. She had many talents including cooking, sewing, and cake decorating and was always willing to teach or help in any way she could. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Her true joy came from spending time with her family and she worked tirelessly caring for them. Viola especially treasured her grandchildren and supported them all in their numerous activities.
The family wishes to express their heartfelt gratitude to Devin, her dear granddaughter, for the kindness, compassion, and dedication she gave to the care of Grandma in her final years.
