Virginia enjoyed bird watching-especially hummingbirds and loved quilting constantly. Her hands were rarely still. She also shared her love for cooking with her grandkids, always making them their favorites from chicken and dumplings, chocolate pie, coconut cake or fried pies. She loved her family and her grandchildren definitely held a special place in her heart.
Virginia will be sorely missed and survived by her daughter Faye (Marshall) Smith, sons Tony (Cathy) Ward, Billy (Sherry) Ward; grandchildren Rob Smith, Bryant Smith, Beth Grooms, Tiffany Renfro, Jenny Ritchey, Amber Ward, Brad Ward, Justin McKinnon, Michael Ward; six great grandchildren and one great great grandchild. All of these she loved and touched deeply.
