This included involvement and leadership in the church; ministering to the shut-ins, the sick, and the nursing home residents; active involvement in civic organizations; working at the polls during elections; and her volunteer service at Lexington County Hospital.

During her final years Virginia continued her involvement in the community and church. After Jack’s death in 2016, she moved into Laurel Crest assisted living home in West Columbia – the city in which she had spent sixty years. When we visited her and when we took her shopping or out to eat, we were always amazed at how many people knew her and would stop to speak to her. She left a strong and lasting impression on the community and its people.
