Virginia L. McNerney Obituary
Virginia L. McNerney October 15, 1917 - August 22, 2012 Mom liked to keep it short and to the point. As I was writing the obituary for her husband 12 years ago, she asked "What will you write about me in my obituary?" I responded that I didn't know quite yet, but assured her that I would think of something when the time came. To wit she replied, "That's what I am afraid of." Virginia died as she had lived, on her own terms; she was in her own home, in her own bed and sleeping peacefully in the arms of her daughter. In keeping with her wishes, there will be no viewing, no Rosary, no mournful songs and no funeral. However, she did not specifically exclude a graveside service! On Saturday, September 1st, 11am at Union Cemetery, her ashes will be interred beside her love, Michael John McNerney. We, who remain with joyous memories to sustain us always, will come together to give thanks to God for the bountiful blessings He bestowed upon the life of Virginia Lucille McNerney. www.bakersfield.com/obits
