Mary Lucille Viviano (Muller) 92, passed March 14, 2017.

A Private Burial held on March 19th at Cook-Walden/Forest Oaks Funeral Home, Austin, alongside her husband, William Viviano and son, David Alan Viviano who preceded her in death.

She was a resident of Houston, Smithville and Austin, Texas. She is survived by daughter, Linda Piazza and Rockey Piazza; grandchildren, Dr. Rocco Piazza, Alessondra and Chris Johnston, Analisa and Justin Albritton, and Anita Rios; great-grandchildren, Taylor and Wynn Johnston, Rockey and Walker Albritton, and Viviana Rios all of Austin; sister, Audrey Hood and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

Lucille met the lover of her life William Viviano at Betsy Ross Elementary at age 11. She enjoyed a beautiful loving 73 years of marriage and while doing so created magic with everything else that she touched.
Lucille was a graduate of Jefferson Davis High School where she was a majorette. She was also a member of First Christian Church of Smithville.
She was instrumental in organizing the Keep Smithville Beautiful Campaign and Smithville Christmas Parade festivities as well as a member of Smithville Garden Clun & Sewing Circle.
Being a member of People Against Violent Crime (PAVC) was her passion and with the assistance of Nell Meyers and Verna Lee Carr, the Tree of Angels was born.

As honorary member of the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo Lamb Committee she initiated the Gimmick Hard Luck Lamb Campaign.

Muller was a loving and devoted wife and mother. God and her family were always her focus. She was a fabulous cook, beautiful seamstress and loved to entertain in her home. We are blessed to have had her love and wisdom all these years. Her beautiful blue eyes and warm smile will be missed by many, but we are comforted by the knowledge that she is presence of our Lord and reunited with Poppa and David.

Our family thanks and praises the many wonderful caregivers at Brookdale Lakeway Clare Bridge & Hospice for their kind and loving care of our Miller.
