Virginia Krohn Obituary
Virginia Louise Krohn, age ninety-one, died peacefully on Monday, March 21st. Ginny was a lifelong Millis resident, who did, however, spend some years on various Air Force Bases across the USA with her husband, Otto and their children during his long military career, but wherever she was, she longed to be home in Millis! She was born when her family lived on Exchange Street, then moved to Plain Street, and then finally to 64 Lavender Street with her parents, Sam and Lou Saville; her brother, Winston, and six sisters; Flora, Shirley, Lorrayne, Rena, Dolly and June, She and Otto purchased it from her parents in 1965. This was the place she called home!! Ginny was a lifelong member of the United Church of Christ in Millis. She was baptized there, attended Sunday School, was confirmed, and then married there in 1947. For several years she taught Sunday School, served as a Deacon, Co-Chaired the Visitors Group and was a member of several other committees. She loved the church and the many friends she made there. Ginny was also a proud member of the Millis High School Class of 1942. She cherished her friends from early childhood, the Sub-Deb Girls, and her Millis High classmates. She was a cheerleader and basketball captain in High School and planned several reunions through the years, hosting her classmates at their 50th Reunion in 1992. She began her career as a telephone operator for the town of Millis, and upon graduation, as a clerical worker, at E.F. Hutton in Boston. Ginny also worked at the Welfare Office in Millis, and while raising her six children, worked for several years as a bank teller at the Wellesley National Bank in Millis, and as a teller in New Jersey and Tacoma, Washington. She was a cash office clerk in Natick for fourteen years and then a receptionist for Bell Towne Realty and later for REMAX realty. She even worked as a realtor for a short time. She also often worked for the Census and at the Town Elections. Although Ginny enjoyed working, she also enjoyed nature, apple picking, dancing to the Big Band sounds with Otto, exercising, and talking politics. Her greatest love, however, was spending time with people!!! She loved her family and friends and all of their families and friends!! She always loved meeting new people!
