Kathryn, Just to let you and your dear family know that you all are in our Love,
Thoughts, and Prayers since hearing about your Mother's death in "The Newberry Observer." You have our deepest sympathy. You had a wonderful write-up for your Mother! It sounded just like her. She loved you and the family so much. She was such a dear, sweet person like our Mom! You could tell they were cousins.
Mother always enjoyed seeing and being with her Cousin Virginia. She always looked forward to the Kibler Reunion, especially in later years, to be with all of them and having them visit at her home after the reunion!
When we were little I remember a trip to visit your Grandparents and your Mom Virginia. I have pictures of it. If you like, I'll mail you copies!
I know that you will miss her and it's hard, I know, but do know that she is in the Loving Arms of our Heavenly Father now along with all of our other Loved Ones. They are all together now again!
I didn't have your address so I'm sending over E-Mail. Do take care and know that We Love You All!
Louise, Anne, & Jimmie Jr.

My grandmother, Evelyn Beiderbecke, who passed away in June 2010 was friends with Mrs. Johnson. Mrs. Johnson was a very intelligent and insightful person.
To the family, I knew Virginia when I served as a Parish Nurse at First United Methodist Church. I will always remember her warm smile and deep committment to her church family. She was a woman of faith through whom you could experience the love of Christ just by being in her presence. She had much ability and talent but it was clothed in great humility. I am grateful to have known someone of her character. Donna Harrill
To the Family of Mrs. Johnson: I just wanted you all to know how much of an impact and encouragement Virginia was to me personally, and to the Bible Study Group we had at Aldersgate. She always had deep and important contributions to make and pushed us students running the program on with true friendship & encouragement. She will be missed
What a beautiful and gentile lady Aunt Virginia was. She always had a kind, loving word for all. Lots of wonderful childhood memories come to heart and mind.
