It is with great sadness, we announce the passing of our mother and grandmother Viola Mae Martinole on 11/24/2016 at the age of 89. Mom was born and raised in Barton, ND where she received her Bachelor’s degree in education and taught business classes until she journeyed to Seattle, where she decided to stay.



She married John Martinole and had 2 daughters. Upon retiring from Boeing after 32 years you’d often find her on the golf course, many attest she had a great swing proven by her hole in one.
