Viola will always be remembered for her loving heart, amazing smile and her never ending love of life. She and my mom enjoyed many fun times together and I’ll always remember the times are families would get together at their home. It would be odd to see Viola not baking when you entered her kitchen! Every thing she made was amazing! Each time I bake her knot cookies I would think of her and call her to catch up. Now, when I bake her cookies, I’ll smile, say a prayer in her honor and be thankful that I knew this special lady. God bless.

Aunt Vi and Uncle Tony were always nice to Tommy and I. I got to know her better through stories told by Donna during our Cape May Weekends. Because of these interesting stories she was nicknamed Stella! Heaven has just received quite the cookie maker! RIP Stella!

We are sorry for your loss. Mom was the matriarch of the Greco Family as a Mother, Wife, and Grandmother.
We enjoyed talking to her especially when it was about her Grandchildren. She always had a smile for all.
Mom will be missed. We know she is with Dad together again. God Bless Her.
