Evansville - H. Virginia Mae (Krieger) Fuchs - 103

June 4th, 1917 - June 25th, 2020

Virginia was preceded in death by her parents Walter and Lucile Krieger; husband Richard H. Fuchs; Granddaughter Misty Fuchs; and daughter-in-law Janey Fuchs.

She is survived by her sons Richard R. (Bud) Fuchs; Donald L. Fuchs (Jan); and Roger A. Fuchs (Debbie Russell); 3 grandchildren; Lori Hines (Eric); Stacie Goller (Michael); Lisa Fuchs; 5 great-grandchildren; and 5 great-great grandchildren.

She touched hundreds of people's lives throughout her career. She worked as a private duty RN; nurse for the Ohio Valley Blood Service; and Director of Nursing of the Good Samaritan Home retiring at age 65. After retiring, she received her private pilot's license and her Administrator's license, returning to Good Samaritan Home as an interim Administrator. After extensive traveling and Dad's passing, she became the Administrator of the Charles Ford Home in New Harmony Indiana, retiring again at age 75. Virginia was a 66 year member of the Daughters of the Nile, member of the Eastern Star Robert Morris Chapter 87, and a charter member of the Hadi Shrine Honored Ladies.

We'd like to thank Newburgh Health Care and AseraCare for taking care of her in her ending days. They did a stellar job.

Visitation will be on Thursday, July 2, 2020 between 1:00 and 5:00 at Sunset Funeral Home with a graveside service shortly after at Sunset Cemetery.

To The Fuchs Family:
Virginia Fuchs was very successful in her professional life. It is no surprise that she could manager her time and multitask. Her most successful relationship was with her dearly departed husband, Richard Fuchs. Anytime I had the pleasure of being in their company, I always enjoyed my time spent. Whatever the occasion, whether it was having dinner together, a conversation, attending church or even flying with them, I always admired the beauty of their relationship and how they lived their lives together. May she rest in eternal peace.
Our heartfelt sympathies to her family.
