Viola Adeline Riley (née Cardiff) passed away peacefully on Sunday, Dec. 24, 2017 at Seaforth Long Term Care Home. In her 93 years among us, Viola lived a life fashioned by love, faith and kindness.
Predeceased by her husband Archie, Viola will be lovingly remembered by their children Shirley Langlois, Calgary; David and Joan Riley, Kitchener; Harvey and Carol Riley, St. Thomas; Clayton and Dawn Riley, Kinburn; Nancy and Doug Bickell, Brampton and Steven and Stella Riley, Kitchener. Cherishing memories of a special grandma are 13 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren and six great-great-grandchildren.

Along with her husband, Archie, and their infant son Ross, in faith, we trust that Viola’s spirit will be reunited in eternal life with her siblings Bill, Jack (Peg), Pete (Helen) and George Cardiff, Vera (Lloyd) Weber and Verna in infancy.
