    Virginia’s beautiful smile and sweet disposition were wonderful blessings to our bible study group, as well as our church family. It was an honour and privilege to meet her, and hear her share of her great love for our God and His Word. May God’s Presence strengthen you all as you say fare well. Until we meet again… Love and prayers to you all.

    On behalf of Lindy Jacob’s Oregon Christian Writers family, we would like to express our since and heartfelt condolences.

    Lindy often spoke of her mother in the warmest of words, and she posted a loving tribute to her for Mother’s Day on Facebook.

    May our good Shepherd hold you close in His arms.

    I will always cherish her sweet and gentle demeanor. We were blessed to have her at church and especially at our bible study group.

  4. Mary Dobbins Says:

    Virginia has been a special friend. She was a member of the Beacon Sunday school class. We went on day trips together and enjoyed our friendship all through these years. We shared some good times when I visited her in her daughters home after she wasn’t able to come to church anymore. The last time I was there she was ready to meet her Lord. I am so grateful for the memories I have of such a sweet caring lady. I miss her greatly.

  5. Sharon Drenner Says:

    Aunt Virginia was one of the most beautiful souls I’ve known; a wonderful mother, wife, and friend to so many. Her lilting laugh and beautiful smile warmed every heart, especially mine. Her husband and children, as well as each member of her family, church, and social group loved her and marveled at her strength and depth of compassion. She will be missed greatly.

Leave a Condolence.
