Viola Rollings Searcy was born to Willie and Jannie Rollings on July 4, 1926 in Forney, Texas. She was the fourth of six children born to this union. Viola was employed by Tom Benson for over half a century where she labored and loved his entire family. She was vibrant, loved music and dancing. She was a very loving person but did not spare her tongue when needed. Viola was preceded in death by her parents, brothers, Curtis and Bubba and sisters, Margaret and Ruthie. Allie and Viola met in 1955 and were married on April 10, 1958 and to this union was born one son, Allie Ray Searcy III. They were hard working people who provided well for their son. They enjoyed life together for over 50 years, traveling and enjoying the sites and wonders of the world. They did everything together and they departed this life together. They leave to cherish their memory, one son, Allie Ray Searcy III and his wife Beverly; two grandsons, Allen Prescott Searcy and Jonathan Hull; two granddaughters, Melissa and Crystal Hull; one great-granddaughter, Julissa Castillo; one brother (to Viola) Willie Rollings and his wife Mildred, and a host of nieces, nephews, other family members, an extended honorary family, a multitude of friends and co-workers. They will be sorely missed by everyone who was lucky enough to have them touch their lives. They are unforgettable.

  1. WE were so saddened by this news. Viola will be missed by every one, her wit and love will be remembered. She was a great friend and guide to all. Sandra Rosenberg

  2. Viola was like a grandmother to me and my family. I have nothing but fond memories of her. Her wonderful stories and contagious laughter will be missed. I can’t imagine a world without my Vie. We love you!

  3. My deepest sympathies for your loss. The summers I spent working at the BFR, were so enjoyable due in no less part to the Wednesday “spreads” that Vi would lay for us. The Thanksgiving dinners that Vi cooked will be like no others I will ever partake. I will miss her laughter, lectures and every piece of advice terribly.
