Viola was raised by her grandparents, “The Roybals" after losing her mother at an early age.  Viola went on to meet the love of her life, and they celebrated 70 beautiful years together until Ted's passing in 2017.  Viola had a deep love for all her family and friends.  She was a hardworking, wonderful woman who was known for her fresh cheeses and homemade bread. She battled cancer and won, always giving credit to her dear Lord. Ted and Viola created a legacy that will last many generations. She met her love Ted in school and went on to create a family with him. They loved each other for almost 70 years until Ted’s passing in 2017. Descanse en paz Nainee. Psalm 73:26, My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
