Viola Woehl was born Friday, September 30, 1921 near Tripp to Fred and Katie (Winckler) Roth. She was baptized on November 6, 1921 and confirmed on June 9, 1935, both at Zion Lutheran Church in Avon. She attended grade school at Vesper School near Avon. Viola was united in marriage to Leon G. Woehl on October 7, 1948 at Avon. She farmed with her husband near Scotland until 1978, when they retired. Viola moved to Scotland in 2006. She was a member of St. Paul Lutheran Church (Missouri Synod). She enjoyed sewing, especially embroidery, taught Sunday school, and was active in the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League and Scotland VFW Auxiliary. Viola passed away on Wednesday, January 16, 2013 at Landmann-Jungman Memorial Hospital in Scotland at the age of 91 years, 3 months, and 17 days.

So sorry for your loss. I think Viola always had a smile on her face. Our mothers shared a lot of good Church memories too. Take care.

Dear Cousins, We send you our heartfelt sympathy at the passing of Viola. She was not only my cousin, but a good friend. I have so many wonderful memories of her that I will hold in my heart forever. How glad we are that we stopped by to visit her just before we left for AZ. That was such a great visit with Viola, Shirley, Sharon and Betty. An added memory of this wonderful lady that we can treasure. May God Bless you all and grant you comfort in the days ahead. Love, Marvin and Agnes
