VIOLA WOODWARD DANIELS, age 105, went to be with her Lord on Friday, December 14, 2018 at her home with her daughter at her side.
Viola was born in Pikeville, Kentucky on November 30, 1913, the daughter of Byron Woodward and Augusta Kinney Woodward. She was a middle child of eleven children, ten of which predeceased her. She was married for 59 years to the love of her life, Ira Walter Daniels, who is deceased. She and Ira had four children: John Robert Daniels, deceased, Lois Daniels Perdue, deceased, Glema Daniels Layne of Betsy Layne, Kentucky, and Joann Daniels Chaffins, of Clarksville, TN. She has nine grandchildren, five great grandchildren, and six great-great grandchildren. She had many "adopted" children who called her Momma Daniels.
Viola had a very active social life and many friends in the Clarksville area. She loved her Church, Lone Oak Baptist Church, and her church family. Up until this last bout with pneumonia, she loved to go on road trips and would not complete one trip without planning another.
