Viola Faria Obituary- Death, Viola Faria Funeral
Faria, Viola 76, passed away Dec. 29, 2021, in St. Louis, Missouri. She was born in Brooklyn, NY, working for Shell Oil Company before starting her own home cleaning business.
Viola’s priority was to raise her daughter Christina, providing her with a myriad of opportunities. An ally to the disability community, she was always willing to help her daughter and friends do anything they wanted to. In St. Louis her dream of owning a home was realized. Her adopted granddaughters Amelia and Miranda Willmering were her pride and joy. Her life’s motto was “Do what you can with what you have where you are,” and she always shared everything she learned along the way. She will be remembered for her never failing sense of humor, fiery personality, love of curse words, Elvis obsession, and just how deeply she loved everyone.
Viola was preceded in death by her parents Marie & Guadalupe Rios and is survived by her daughter Christina Faria & Brother Robert Rios
