Viola (Vi) Cannon Moreland

August 26, 1920 — September 28, 2019

KERRVILLE - Viola (Vi) Cannon Moreland, 99, of Kerrville, Texas is at rest in the arms of her Heavenly Father on September 28, 2019.

She was the 4th child of A.C. and Lucy Cannon was born in Washington, Iowa on August 26, 1920. At age 10, she was baptized in the Disciples of Christ, Christian Church in Washington, Iowa and has been a member of this denomination all of her earthly life.

We lovingly referred to her as our “Ever ready Bunny” because she just kept going. Our family marveled that she had survived The Depression, smallpox, a cancer survivor, and was bitten by a brown recluse spider, just to name a few.

Every challenge and life situations were met head-on and conquered because of her faith in God and love for her family and friends who were most important. Everyone fondly remembers what a seamstress, knitter, and baker she was from the delicious cakes to the mouth-watering cinnamon rolls, which were given with love to friends, neighbors and family who came to visit and were even delivered on occasion.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Homa H. Moreland, her parents, and five siblings. She was the oldest surviving member of the Cannon family.

Vi is survived by Becky & husband Roger Van Burkleo of Kerrville, TX; Allen Stephenson of San Antonio, TX, her grandson Ross Van Burkleo & wife Rachelle of Dripping Springs, TX and Granddaughter Rachel & husband Jason Flowers of Austin, TX. Also, her pride and absolute joy are her three great-grandchildren, Austin Van Burkleo and Storey and Sydney Flowers. Vi is also survived by umpteen nieces and nephews and their children around the USA.

Vi has willed her body to UT Health Science Center, San Antonio, TX. At a later date, she will be buried alongside of her husband, Homa Moreland at Highland Memorial Park, Weslaco, Texas. Arrangements will be with McCaleb Funeral Home, Weslaco, Texas.

Thank you to everyone at Hilltop Village Nursing & Rehab for their care and love, deepest appreciation to Alamo Hospice. Memorials and gifts may be sent to First Christian Church in Kerrville, TX or Alamo Hospice 1232 Bandera Rd., Kerrville, TX.
