  • I was honored to get to know sweet, kind Viola when I worked at a local optical shop almost 40 years ago and she filled in occasionally. Then we would visit down at Cornbread Corner restaurant. Time passed but it was always a pleasure to run into her at the grocery or the voting polls and catch up a bit. She was very special. To the family...may the wonderful memories you have of Viola give you comfort in the coming days ahead. Dawn (Hill) Bishop
