Virginia was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother and a devout Christian who instilled good Christian moral values in her children. She was always soft spoken, kind and gentle to everyone she met. Even when she was in a lot of pain you never saw her without a smile, she had such a sweet serenity to her. Everyone that ever knew her said she was so wonderful and had such a kind and honest face. We have always called her our angel.
Our father always made sure she had a comfortable life and provided well for all of us, which made her able to be the wonderful wife and mother that she was.
We were so blessed to have her in our lives. We will truly miss you mother. Life will never again be the same. We take comfort in knowing that you are with God and our other loved ones that have passed. We will always love you mother. Until we meet again, we know you will watch over us.
Viewing is Friday from 1 to 6 p.m. Visitation with family greeting friends from 6 to 8 p.m. at Dunsford-Zeiner West Chapel.
Funeral service Saturday, March 28, at 10 a.m. at the First Assembly of God Church, 3626 N. Ohio in Augusta. Interment at 2:30 p.m. in Mt. Hope Cemetery in Humboldt.
