Viola Emma Drury Taylor Gelvin

Viola Emma Drury Gelvin, 87, passed away Wednesday, Sept. 8, 2010, in Richland Hills.
Viola Gelvin was born Feb. 7, 1923, in Girard, Pa. 
Waiting to greet her was her husband of 53 years, Jack E. Gelvin; and parents, Lynn and Retta Drury of Cranesville, Pa. 

Left on this world to carry on are her daughters, Ruth E. Haynes of Richland Hills, Jacqueline Gelvin of San Antonio and Cathy Schumacher of Austin; son, Joshua Schumacher Gelvin of Fort Worth; adopted daughter, Rose Vierra of Hilo, Hawaii; seven grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; three great-great-grandchildren; and sisters, Linnie Meeder of Girard, Pa., Wilma Gehr of Houston, Marilyn Strait of Albion, Pa., and Alice Engleke of Houston.

I was contacted by Ruth Haynes to update our genealogy page. She told me about her mom and so I created a place for her here in Life Ever After.
Rest in peace Viola.

My mother's Memorial Service was today. Dr. Mosser of the First Methodist Church of Arlington officiated at the Service.
 Mr. Chris Moore was the funeral director. 
I want to say thank you to both men as the service was beautiful.
I miss my mother terribly; but I know she is with God and I will be eternally grateful that she passed peacefully in her sleep. She was an incredible woman and I was extremely fortunate to have her as a mother. 
The day before she died, she went into my office where she worked for twenty years and chatted with her friends. 
When I checked in with her that evening, she said she felt great and she was watching her favorite show, America's Got Talent. I know she even voted for her favorite, Prince Poppicock (a singer for those who don't watch the show).
I found her in the morning. Her eyes were closed and she was smiling. 
To those of you who attended her service, thank you.
For those who sent cards and flowers, again thank you.
Ruth Haynes
