Matriarch feted by Richardson clan
Viola Richardson was honored for her 85th birthday at a party where she was surrounded by her extended family, children, grandchildren, nieces and old family friends. The event was held on the shore of Hobbs Pond at the home of her son Charles Lee Richardson, CR Builders, and his wife, Debbie.
Viola was surprised and pleased by the gift of a large flat-screen TV from the whole family. Guests were served barbecue steak, chicken, hot dogs and casseroles, plus many delicious homemade goodies. Children enjoyed fishing from the dock and just plain running, and playing tag with the dogs on the extended lawns. Viola cut the cake and helped serve it with the aid of her niece Bunny Gleason.
