Virginia graduated from Bismarck High School in 1952 and earned an Associates Degree in Education from Danville Area Community College. She loved teaching in every aspect of her life. Virginia was employed by Danville School District 118, was a full-time homemaker while her children were young, worked retail sales for 30 plus years at Elder Beerman/Carson’s, and used her sewing talents as an alterations seamstress. Her hobbies included sewing, reading, and cooking. Cream pies were her specialties! Virginia loved the Lord with all her heart; serving within her church and community.

Virginia enjoyed being a 4H member and later organized the “Lynch Homesteaders”4H group that she led for ten years.

Virginia was a charter member of the Bismarck Jr. Women’s Club. For many years, Virginia served as an Election Judge, only retiring from that position three years ago. Visiting with family, friends, and even customers was one of Virginia’s passions. She will be remembered for her loyalty, compassion, and kindness for all who crossed her path. The family would like to express heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the many caregivers over the past five years. A special thank you goes to the staff of The Waters of Covington for the caring, expert care given to Virginia during the darkest of days.
