Alejandro and Candida (Acolonia) Castillo.

Violet was always vibrant, sharing her contagious sense of humor and was a spectacular
hostess. All of her attributes were reflected as she entertained guests singing beautiful
Hawaiian and classic country songs with the voice as great as Patsy Cline, serving
enormous buffets, luau style, of her home cooked Filipino cuisine and vivacious
personality. Violet lived life with love, humor, classy yet sassy flair and much happiness.

She was preceded in death by her husband Dennis Mahoney, daughter, Patty Shomo,
siblings, Phyllis Reynolds, Katherine Reyes, Albert and Leo Castillo, two grandsons,
Michael and Jeffrey Franks and two great-granddaughters, Amanda and Meadow Franks.

Left to cherish and treasure her life are children Greg, Cindy and John (Rose), 6
grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren, sister, Barbara Jean (Castillo) Walker and her
large & loving ‘Ohana (family) in Hawaii and Colorado. She was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Lakeland.
