Aunt Virginia
We have lots of good memories that we will always treasure. You were always the best dressed and such a beautiful woman.
So many funny stories as well, especially in involving Daddy. You lived a good life and will be missed dearly by everyone. It's hard not to think of Herb and Marg when thinking of you and Winnie as you were four of a kind. We know Winnie met you in Heaven and took you by the hand and you danced again just like old times. We love you.
Jenny, Marcia, Dawn, Bridgett

Your entire family is in our prayers. Virginia was a beautiful lady from the inside out. She showed so much love and I will truly miss knowing she is no longer in this world. But I know I will meet her again in God's wonderful Heaven! Rest In Peace my sweet Virginia, I love you!!!!
