Virginia enjoyed volunteering her time at Hillside Hospital and helping with Meals on Wheels. She was a faithful member of St. Katharine Drexel Parish, where she was involved with the Christian Women and served as past president.

She is further survived by a sister-in-law, Marilyn Schachtner; many other relatives and friends. Virginia was preceded in death by her parents; husband in 1998; grandson, Paul Deck; and infant brother, Lewellyn.

Thank you to all her community friends and caregivers at Hillside Manor for their companionship and love over the years.
