Virginia was an amazing lady! I was blessed to work with her in the ICU at Memorial Hospital! She was a joy & kept everyone in line!! Rest in peace sweet lady!
I loved visiting with Virginia when she worked in the ICU patient waiting area at Memorial.
Ron, she was always so happy and proud that you honored her by printing her picture in
the paper on her birthday.
My thoughts and prayers to the family. So sorry for your loss.
Thoughts and prayers for your family. I will always remember Virginia and the times my family visited her and Robert. I always enjoyed how she would sign her letters from “Grandma Virginia and the girls” in reference to her beloved Dobermans.
