Viola A. Bordner, 92, of Palo Alto, CA died Friday, March 8, 2019 at Encina Care Home in Redwood City, CA following a short illness.

Viola was born on January 29, 1927 in Powahatan Point, Ohio to the late Everett and Sylvia Brunner. She was married Sept. 26, 1953 to Donald C. Bordner, who preceded her in death.

Surviving family members include a son, Randall A.

Viola was a fiercely independent woman who enjoyed quilting, sewing and gardening-and especially adored her eight grandchildren. Viola was selfless and strong; everyone who met her loved her for her sweetness.
