When Mrs Aguilar retired from the school district, I took her place. She was the voice of the district! Big shoes to fill ! Everyone loved her! She taught me everything I know on how to run an office and even gave me some nice office suits to wear when I first started out! I will always remember her for the calm, patient, caring and loving person that she always was with everyone! God rest your loving soul, Mrs Violi!! My condolences to Mr Aguilar and family 🙏🏼

Viola had a voice of an angel. I worked with her for more then 20 years. She was the sweetest lady I've ever met. My condolences to the family and may she RIP. Love you dearly.

One of the nicest persons anyone could ever have known. As supportive FFA parent back in the 80's and a caring Day Care Director for our youngest daughter Robyn, Ms Aguilar will always be remembered by our family. God bless her and may she RIP.
