  1. Ms. Virginia was always so pleasant to talk to when she came to visit me at Rainbow Plaque Co. before I closed it. Her love for her family and bowling was prominent. My deepest condolences.

  2. Many fond memories. I met Virginia while doing a play called promises promises. She was so kind and good humored. I had occasionally talked with her. I prayed for her during her battle. Jesus took her home to be with him. I look forward to seeing her again. Seeing that great smile again.

    We knew Virginia from the Eagles Auxiliary, she was such a sweet person. Always kind to us both and loved working bingo with my husband (Dan).
    She and I kept in touch on Facebook as of late, just a sentence or two but it was still “in touch”. Rest well in Jesus arms Virginia 🙏🏻❤

    I loved how she was always looking forward to Christmas because I would make a extra table arrangement for her and she appreciated it more then others . Prayers to you all and may she Rest In Peace

  5. Our condolences to the entire family. I was surprised by the announcement as she always looked active and healthy in her Facebook posts. It had been far too many years since I had seen her and the family. We pray that she will rest in peace and that her family will find strength in remembering her and the way she enjoyed life! Wish I could be there for the services, but my wife is currently in the hospital. God bless all!

    My husband and I are so sorry for your loss, may happy memories carry you through this sorrowful time. My most cherished memory of your mom was when I took my mom up to Mackinac Island for her 80th birthday and we ran into your mom, Virginia, and John Thompson, Eagle Members there celebrating her Birthday. Virginia’s was the 19th and my mom’s was the 20th of August. Will never forget that day. Rest in peace, my dear friend.

  7. I was sad to read of the passing of Virginia. I knew her from Eagle’s Bingo and also as secretary of the auxiliary for many years. She was such a beautiful person, always smiling.
    We have been competing on “Quiz Planet” on Facebook for a couple years or more. I was wondering why she hadn’t taken her “turn” in over a week. I’m sure she’s playing “Quiz Planet” with the angels now. Rest in peace. My sincere condolences to the family. Aara Sue

    You will be missed, Virginia. You helped many people and touched so many hearts, including mine. You were loved and missed. My prayers are with your family.

  9. Sorry to hear about your loss, I meet Virginia at a Eagles Convention and we always joked that she was always #1 and I was #2 and through the years it’s been ongoing. She will always be #1! Will miss her and may she rest in peace 🙏
