A woman was buried Wednesday at the Catawba Indian Nation, and a big hawk, or a small eagle, circled the cemetery at the Mormon church. It must not have been a coincidence. Viola Robbins, who died Monday at home at 88, lived in the last house of the last road on the reservation east of Rock Hill, with her husband of 68 years.
