Sweet Virginia....I have know this lady all of my life. Her and my mother were best friends, along with their other "Club" friends. Virginia, Mom and Amber met in the late 40's while working together. The three along with 5 other lady's would host a monthly dinner and visiting night out which was always referred to as "Club." This group of friends continued their Club get together's until the early 2000's. As most of them have passed, Virginia continued to keep in contact with my father. She was resilient, positive and so giving as was stated with her time spent as a volunteer. I can only imagine what a greeting she is having with her family and friends that have passed. God bless Virginia, she was one special lady. Janet Ross
