In Remembrance: Eagle woman lived to be 100

Long life came easy to Viola Mohr. She ate home-grown vegetables and fruit and exercised daily. Her lifestyle is the reason she lived to be 100 years old, according to family. And they're quick to add that she was the nicest, sweetest lady anyone could ever meet. But just because Mohr never gossiped or overstated her opinion, doesn't mean hard times didn't fall on her. She lived through the Depression and war, experienced divorce and was later widowed after her second husband, Rudolph Mohr, died. At a recent service, family and friends remembered Mohr, who died Jan. 10.
