Virginia was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who always put her family first. She spent years faithfully helping her husband on their grape farm and selling vegetables at the public market. She was proud of her children and grandchildren and loved talking with them in person or on the phone. She prayed for them to come to know the Lord that she loved. She was always there to offer a helping hand or a listening ear, and her warm smile and big hugs lit up any room she entered. One of Virginia’s greatest joys in life was spending time with her family. She loved nothing more than gathering everyone together for holidays and special occasions, where she would prepare her famous pink salad and share stories and laughter with her loved ones. She loved decorating her home for Christmas and finding the perfect gift for each person in her family. She was a past member of DAR. Her hobbies were crafting, sewing, and collecting antiques. She loved taking trips to find antiques and Depression era pink glassware at household sales, antique shops and auctions.
Virginia instilled in her children the same values she had learned growing up, teaching them the importance of hard work, putting God first and spending time with family. Her legacy of love, kindness and devotion to family will live on through her children and grandchildren who will cherish her memory and carry her spirit with them always.
