In sweet peace, we sadly say goodbye to, Viola Green McAuley, who has been called to Eternal rest. Viola was born April 5, 1928 in Montgomery County, North Carolina. Her parents were the late Carl Rueben and Ethel Mae (Green) Green. Viola’s life was well lived; she was a servant of God; she has won the victory; fought the battle and has entered God’s Kingdom, Friday, December 11, 2020. And now she wears a crown of righteousness. It has been difficult for us to say goodbye, but we know that Our God knows best, and we will see her again.
She was educated in the Stanly County public schools, Albemarle, North Carolina; and was employed with Federal Pacific Company, Albemarle.
Viola was a faithful member of Roper Grove African Methodist Episcopal Church, Mount Gilead, North Carolina. At Roper Grove, she was ‘Mother of the Church’, former president and member of the Usher Board, member of the Senior Choir and Pastor’s Aide Auxiliary.
She enjoyed cooking and her specialties were: chicken-n-dumplings and apple jacks. Her favorite pastimes were watching her favorite television game shows: Jeopardy and Family Feud, hosted by Steve Harvey. She loved her family dearly and enjoyed the time they shared. She also relished talking on the phone with her special friends.
Her husband, Floyd McAuley Sr. preceded her in death in February 1960. She was also preceded in death by her sons: Alvin McAuley and Floyd McAuley Jr.; sisters: Lena M. Watkins, Bessie Ewing, and Katie L. Ford; and brother, Robert L. Green.
