She is also survived by 15 grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren.Virginia was a loving wife, mother and friend to many. Her spare bedroom was always used and her table was always filled with family who wanted to spend time with Ma-Ma. Her great cooking certainly added to their enjoyment. She was always ready with a story or memory to keep her guests engaged and entertained.Virginia loved to travel with her favorite vacation being a car-trip to California with Fred, Carol, and Sherry. She kept us in stitches for weeks with stories about their escapades. Poor Fred! She also enjoyed weekend getaways to our State Parks but insisted on a cabin. She was in her hey-day at the numerous family events where we celebrated holidays and special events.Virginia was born in and spent her youth in Bibb County but moved to Duncanville after she married. She later moved to Tuscaloosa to be with her extended family. Virginia was an excellent seamstress, helping many young women with perfectly fitting gowns and dresses. She also spent years working at Bryce Hospital, helping those who needed her loving care. Even though Virginia loved to travel, she was always glad to return to her home. She now resides in her Heavenly Home with her Lord, Jesus Christ. We will miss you Virginia.
