Viola Adams Hinckley

Viola Fleta Adams Hinckley was an amazing woman who was loved, is missed and will always be cherished, by her family and a multitude of friends. She passed from this life on Saturday, February 8, 2020, at her home in Lindsay, Oklahoma.

Viola was born to J. B. and Mamie (Johns) Adams on July 25, 1929, at their home south of Maysville. She began her education in a small country school, moved to Elmore City Schools and then Hughes School until 1947, graduating from Lindsay High School in 1948.  Viola was baptized in Rush Creek at the age of 14.

After graduation she was employed by GTE and Southwestern Ball where she created many friendships that she talked about often and of the good times they had – and yes a few wild stories.  She then began A1 Answering Service, which she operated for over 40 years.
