Beloved wife, mother and grandmother Virginia (Ginny) Worthington Anderson, 90, died suddenly November 28, 2012 in La Mesa, California. Virginia graduated with a BA from the University of Wisconsin, Madison and worked as a speech pathologist. Roy and Virginia were married January 3, 1948. Their marriage of 65 years was a testament of their love and devotion to each other. Virginia raised three children and was a devoted grandmother. Always a seeker of knowledge and adventure, Roy and Virginia explored the world. Virginia studied Spanish in college and later became fluent in Italian and French in her 60s. Her command of languages afforded her the ability to travel to many countries always touching the lives of others. A renaissance woman, she is the author of By the Wings of the Morning, the story of her family's year long adventure to the Seychelles in 1963. She was also an accomplished poet and devout Christian yet respected and explored the many religions of the world. She was born in New York, NY to George and Irene Worthington.
