Virginia M. O'Neill

AGE: 80 •

Virginia M. O'Neill, 80, Red Bank, NJ died January 15, 2017.

Ginny was born in Baltimore, Maryland, the youngest daughter of Herbert and Marie Arthur. A proud graduate of The Institute of Notre Dame, a private all-girls Catholic high school in Baltimore, she married in 1956 and in 1968 she and her husband, Lawrence, moved to Middletown, NJ to raise their two girls. Ginny gave countless hours of her time to her church, to the local Girl Scouts of America, to the Women's Center at Brookdale Community College and to the Oak Hill Woman's Club. She returned to school, attending Brookdale Community College in Lincroft, NJ, where she received her Associate's Degree in Computer Science. She went on to have a successful career at American Bell and Lucent Technologies.

She traveled the world with her husband and her retirement years were spent doting on her grandchildren. Later, she enjoyed her life at the Atrium in Red Bank where she remained active, making new friends, serving on committees and enjoying the view of the beautiful Navesink River.

Her departure from this world was unexpected and left a large void. She will be greatly missed. She is survived by her husband of 60 years, Lawrence, a resident at Meridian Nursing at Shrewsbury; her sister, Dorothy Arthur, S.S.N.D., Baltimore, Maryland; her daughter Virginia McDonald, Rumson; daughter Judith Benedict and her husband William, Middletown; and four loving grandchildren John and Kelly McDonald and Erinne and Christian Benedict.

Visitation will be Sunday, January 22, 2017, from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Thompson Memorial Home, 310 Broad St, Red Bank, NJ. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held St. Catharine's Church, 108 Middletown Rd, Holmdel, NJ. Entombment will follow at St. Gabriel's Cemetery in Marlboro.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a memorial donation to the School Sisters of Notre Dame, Maria Healthcare, 6401 North Charles St, Baltimore, MD 21212.
