Virgie had made a profession of faith in Christ and was of the Pentecostal/Baptist faith.
She was born in Hartshorn and raised in the Mtn. Grove area. She was a homemaker and had moved several times over the years to be near her children and grandchildren.
In her spare time, she enjoyed crocheting and going to casinos.
Virgie’s life was her children. She would do whatever she could to help them. She was a very caring and giving person and would give her last dime to someone if they were in need.
Virgie was a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt and a caring neighbor and friend. We celebrate her life and will always cherish the many wonderful memories of the time spent with her.
