The dash that was Virginia’s life was filled with love and hard work. Raising her children as well as maintaining a variety of jobs over the years from dental assistant, secretary, housekeeping, running an ambulance business, weight watchers representative, church secretary/treasurer, singing in the choir, laundry worker and longest and most recent job as dietary aide at Meadowbrook Medical Care Facility. Which had become her home recently. Never meeting a stranger that didn’t become a friend almost instantly or being taken in as part of her family. Virginia’s life exhibited her love for God in every aspect of the word. Always ready to serve wherever she could. Some know her as the cake lady, because of all the wonderful cakes she made for any and all occasion, big or small.
