Virginia Alexandra Billhimer, 60, of Silver Spring MD peacefully passed away at her home on Saturday, April 13, 2013, after a courageous battle with breast cancer. "Ginny" was surrounded by her loving children and husband Edwin "Win" Billhimer with whom she celebrated 25 years of marriage on February 29 of this year. Ginny was the proud mother of four children: Philip, Ben, Nick and Madeline, as well as two step-children: Sherri and Shipley, and seven grandchildren: Julianna, Philip, Aubrey, Dillan, AJ, Klimo and Xander. Virginia was born in Edinborough, Scotland on July 1, 1952 to Margaret Doris Steward and Victor Herbert Steward. She is survived by loving siblings Victoria Markus, Veronica Steward and Robert Steward. At the age of 3 Ginny and her family traveled to America on the Queen Elizabeth, arriving on May 15, 1956. Ginny grew up in Silver Spring, MD, graduating from Montgomery Blair High School in 1970, after which she was a successful paralegal secretary. She continued to raise her family in Silver Spring, where she was actively involved in Montgomery County volunteer programs and PTA for over 20 years, where she met her husband Win. In 1995, Virginia became a proud citizen of the United States of America. With her children and husband, Ginny was a dedicated member of the American Originals Fife and Drum Corp. Virginia's home on Sunnyside Rd was a welcoming space where she warmed the hearts of many with her wisdom and gourmet meals. Ginny enjoyed books, music, and spending time with her family in Ocean City, MD. A Celebration of Virginia's life will be held on Saturday April 20 at 602 Sligo Ave from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please send donations in honor of Virginia Billhimer to The Old Blair Auditorium Project: Online condolences can be made at
