Viola (Peachie) Card, 94, passed away peacefully December 17, 2013, after hip surgery. She was a devoted mother and grandmother, a caring and loving lady, and an inspiration to many. Peachie worried more about others than herself. People, especially children, loved her. She was everyone’s grandma. Her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren know that the privilege of having her as their mother or grandmother was a precious gift. Her love, strength and guidance will always be with us.
Viola E. Morgan was born March 25, 1919. She graduated from Billings Senior High School in 1937. Viola married the love of her life, Howard B. Card, in 1938. They were married 35 years until his death in 1973. She was employed at St. John’s Lutheran Home for eleven years. She was hired as a part-time dishwasher, but within a short time was promoted to kitchen manager. She excelled in her short career just as in her life. For many years she was actively involved with the First Evangelical United Brethren Church located at 4th and Broadwater.
She is survived by her daughter Jill Card, daughter Janice Lennick, son Ron Card, and son-in-law Floyd Lennick. Her grandchildren are Jeff Guy (Beth), Steven Guy (Wilda), and Scott Guy (Melanie). She is also survived by her great-grandchildren Justin Guy, Amber Guy, Ryan Guy, Tiffany Guy, and three great-great grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents Louis Morgan and Theresa Novasio Morgan, husband Howard Card, daughter Joanne Card, and son-in-law Norm Guy, and eight siblings: Annabell Morgan, Charles Morgan, Elizabeth “Betty” Morgan Poleski, Louis Morgan, Rose Morgan Keller, Helena Morgan Cotton Vetch, Donald Morgan, and Lawrence Morgan.
It was Mom’s request that we only have graveside services. In keeping with her wishes, graveside services will be held at Mountview Cemetery on Monday, December 30, 2013, at 2 PM. All who would like to attend are welcome.
We are going to miss you Mom and Grandma until we meet again.
