Viola Elizabeth Marsh, loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, passed away February 7, 2017 at the age of 91. She was born in December, 1925 on a farm in Pennsylvania during a bad snow storm. Viola lived in Albuquerque for 61 years. She retired from Kaseman Hospital in 1989.

Viola was preceded in death by her husband of 47 years, Robert; parents, Blaine and Edna Wright; and brothers, Banks and Ivan Wright of Pennsylvania. She is survived by her daughter, Patricia Milligan and husband, Dennis. "The Gram" is also survived by her grandsons, Gary Milligan and Nicole Bomar and Patrick and Toya Milligan; and great-grandchildren, Mackenzie, Breanna, Riley, Ryan, Declan Milligan and Baily and Logan Prawita.

Mom believed the secret to a wonderful life was to "live every day to its fullest. We cannot change what's happened and we do not know what tomorrow will bring…never look back!"

Rest in peace, Mom, your pain and suffering are gone and you are with Daddy together again. We love you and you will always be in our hearts.

A funeral service for the family will be held February 13, 2017. Entombment at Sunset Memorial Park will follow. Please visit our online guestbook for Viola at
